Why should he? The Palestinians haven't kept up their end; the suicide attacks continue with no real effort on the part of the Palestinian "leadership" to do anything to put a stop to it.

Could Bush be trying harder? Maybe, but we can't put this one all on him.

Hi, Josh.

No, it's certainly not all on him. But until Bush, we pressured both sides; Bush has put just about zero pressure on Israel. His policy has basically been "whatever Ariel wants is fine with me!"

that rock more often. You obviously miss a lot of what really goes on in the world.

Bush, like presidents before him, has indeed placed "pressure" at various times on both sides. Bush, like presidents before him, had tended to favor the Israeli side most frequently, but like presidents before him has come out strongly both for and against decisions by Israel's leaders.

Bush does seem to have gotten slightly further toward amicable relations between both sides than Clinton did.

Try to keep current Dave.

Howmany Presidents before Bush

and how many after Bush will still be looking to deal with this problem diplomatically? It's up to those TWO guys over there to get the plan working, and ONE or the OTHER always finds a reason to back away from the bargaining table.

Why blame Bush?

Because that's what they do. It's all they do. We've had to endure numerous daily doses of this leftist vomit for years now and real Americans are way past sick of hearing it. But on and on it goes...

Blame bush for being the president least involved in the question since Eisenhower.

Well, maybe when compared to State dinners for a terrorist I suppose.

Wasn't GEN Ariel Sharon a tank commander back in his earlier Army years. Old habits are very hard to break.

When you're driving a tank, it's even better than driving a Hummer H2 SUT on DC's Beltway at rush hour. All you have to do point it at where you want to go, and "pour the cobs to it."

Oops, there goes another rubber tree plant...er-r-r....Palestinian village...Ker-Plop!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
