I never was the type to believe that we acknowledge one way or another, only those who achieve results. We should award those that are on the right course. It's ridiculous to assume that given only 9 months as President of United States, that Mr. Obama would deliver any mission accomplished, especially within the Middle East. Don't blame the U.S. for the impasse, blame Netanyahu's government - and what an interesting coalition! They don't even want a two-state solution from their obvious stalling tactics - otherwise we'd be on deciphering the last details of the borders of the two states by now. I wouldn't bet on this government delivering anything to global peace - we'll have to probably wait for the next elections. Even if Obama uses the U.N. - this government won't budge!
