This just in on Monday night! President Bush is trying to convene a Mideast conference to reach se kind of deal on a Palestinian state between Israel and Jordan. Oh, goody. The guy who can't tell a Sunni from a Kurd is going to convince people who have been fighting with eachother for 5,000 years to kiss and make up. Actually, it won't be him, it'll be Condi Rice. Oh yeah, that's a great idea. Actually, it is a great idea, but only if it works. Somehow, I get the feeling that everybody's expectations, including those of the Bush administration, will be unrealistic and the whole thing will blow up after some massive misunderstanding by the Americans. It's just a gut feeling, like the Homeland Security guy said about a terrorist attack in the United States.
