After listening to Olmert addessing his puppets in Congress a few minutes ago, would suggest that the US also choose its friends in the East more wisely as well. Throughout his speech Olmert never once acknowledged any fault on part of Israel in dealing with the Palestinians (Islamofascists to you) which, as you should know,if you have any knowledge of human nature, is a sure sign nothing will come of his address except the heaping of more blame on a virtually helpless people. If Israel and the US cannot admit any responsibility for the situation in the ME, there will never be a solution, other than what reality will impose on them.
