  •  I wish I could feel even a little optimistic (7+ / 0-)

    But I can't.
    What are the odds that if these talks even get started, that they will last more than a few days before either Israel decides to announce further settlements, or Hamas launches a rocket attack, and they come to a screeching halt?
    How many sets of peace talks have there been in the last 20, 30, 40 years? Is there a single solid accomplishment that can be pointed to from any of them?
    It seems to be an agenda item that every president has to check off his list, as if having the talks themselves is some sort of worthy achievement, even if it's clear that we'll do nothing substantial to see that they succeed.  
    I hope these will be different, but I've seen nothing to make me believe they will be.
