False Dilemma, Mr. Bush.

No, I'm not buying the idea that Middle East peace is linked to U.S. security. The Israelis have proven themselves incapable of producing military victories on command, and that is what threatens Bush and his elites.
Israel can justly be accused of cowardice by its enemies.
Just as the U.S. can also be justly be accused of cowardice for its clandestine prisons & torture protections of the unitary executive branch.
Americans produced one victory in 2003, Iraq.
What kind of a victory was it, though?
