This article is interesting in a look at behind the scenes at the White House:

First Stop, Iraq

It's also interesting in how nebulus a light it gives the proceedings, so that anyone of either side can read what they want out of it. Regardless, this week is shaping into the week when America provided its plans for Peace in the Middle East.

I'm not sure why we think we should be imposing our ideals for "Peace" when the Middle East has about 2000 years+ of a history of resentment for each other. Plus, there are democratic powers in the Middle East, and they've certainly been no more peaceful than the rest.

I used to joke, "The only way to get peace in the Middle East is to take it all over and force them into it." I had rather hoped it was understood that my faceitious statement was a ridiculous statement about how it was impossible to exact peace on others, not a suggestion.
