If you heard the GWB speech, then you know that you don't have a worry
anymore, you have a fact. In Isreal, one Sharon supporter commented that
while he was listening to the speech, he was thinking, "OK, this is the
carrot, now what is going to be the stick?" Well, the stick never came. No
reguirements on Isreal, at all.

The speech was basically telling the Palistinians that they have to
democratically select a knew leader, as long as it's one that is acceptable
to the Bush Regime. Sounds like Afganistan, and a few other places

Since it is the declared policy of the Bush Regime to get rid of the
current leader of Irag, and there is no way that this is going to be
supported by the Arab states, while the Palistinians are being tortured and
killed (with full support of the Bush Regime), you can only wonder whether
there is any judgement being exercised by the key figures in the U.S.
government at all.
