Hi Domenick,

I'm not gonna dispute anything you've said as that's pretty much between you and Noel, but I will say the following ...


While Trump may have "simply formally acknowledged what Congress said 20 years ago", it has at the very least caused some of the Arab Mideast to call for a new Intifada (see the link).

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2017/12/07/hamas-leader-calls-new-intifada-after-trumps-jerusalem-move/929806001/?csp=dailybriefing

Now the questions will quickly become:
  • How many, if any, others in the Arab Mideast will sign on to it?; and
  • Regardless of whether they do or not, then how much new/more bloodshed have his actions caused?

However much occurs, if any, will be on HIS head and hands and regardless of that, I suspect he has done the actual Mideast Peace Process no favors, but I could be wrong. Only time will tell the tale. I just hope he doesn't get us into yet another war: NK looming and now the ME????? Given "Old BoneSpur" never wore "the uniform" he leaves quite a bit to be desired when it comes to Int'l Relations and Military Conflicts. The vast majority of what he has to offer comes from a foul wind in his wake.

The Mideast Peace Process is certainly no easy nut to crack and I'm also no expert on it as that arena is above my paygrade, but at least I'm aware of my limitations. He hasn't got the first clue.

So what? If the Arab world wanted peace it would happen. It has been put on a platter several times for them - only to reject it.

Moving to recognize Jeursalem as the capital city of Israel is a move to reality.

"So what? If the Arab world wanted peace it would happen."

If Chicago wanted peace it would happen? But it doesn't so does that make the Arab world as bad as Chicago or is there another factor occurring?

If American politics wanted peace or even civility, it would happen? But it doesn't so does that make the Arab world as bad as American politics or is American politics as bad as the Arab world or are there other factors occurring?

If America wanted to rebuild its infrastructure it would happen but it doesn't so why does that happen? Does America like to spend billions and trillions more on war than helping to rebuild from hurricanes or from giving the rich tax cuts instead of health care for the needy?

M Bathurst-
Was that peace platter what others were willing to give to get peace or was that peace platter what the Palestinians needed before peace was possible?

Your statements are simply silly; and, not related to my post.

Your last question is simply an attempt to misdirect the discussion. You seem to have excess time on your hands - do the research on the offers given to them; which they have rejected - and look for what they have requested. Reasonable to you?

While it may sound as if I'm disagreeing, I'm really not. I just don't particularly care for the damn politicos and their eternal "Keep trying the same solution to a given problem and expecting a different solution" and we both know what that is the definition of.

So while I don't care for Trump or his modus operandi, I suspect it may turn out to be better than what's been going on before. I'll hunker down in my foxhole and wait to see what happens.
