MidEast Peace

It is a hopeful day in the Middle East. A summit is being held to try and end the violence.

Bush did the right thing. He did not try to work with Arafat. He knew Arafat had no intentions of actually leading his people.
I applaud the position stated by C. Rice. The U.S. will be taking a step back and expects Israel and Palestine to work this out between themselves.

The 'Roadmap to Peace' has been set in motion. It is time for the countries of that region to take responsibility for their share of the problems and step up.

The U.S. is not the only reason for the problems and the U.S. should not have to shoulder all the responsiblity.
It's no longer as easy to blame everything on the U.S..
The U.S. needs to continue to point out that our need for oil is not the only reason for the problems of these nations.
