    There are certain elements among both Palestinians and Israelis, who each side points to in accusing the other of being violent in a way as to suggest it's not worthwhile trying to make peace with them.  

    Now if both sides dig in their heels and aren't willing to talk, or if even one side does that, the situation remains a stalemate and the violence continues in both directions.

    There are certain elements in Afghanistan that the US could make the same case about, but instead Obama has directed his subordinates to be willing to talk with them.  

    And what I'm suggesting is, we can criticize tactics without attacking individual persons.  That's a step forward.  

    Ask anyone with any background in peace & conflict studies, diplomacy, labor/management negotiation, or any other relevant field, they'll tell you something similar.  

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
