From the theatre of the absurd: Rice seeks Mideast peace deal while Bush in office

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice joined Israeli and Palestinian leaders on Monday in voicing hope they could reach a peace agreement before President George W. Bush leaves office in January 2009.

Peace in the Middle East? Ah, look around.

• There is the minor matter of the unending war in Iraq that has fostered its own brand of terrorism. Hard to imagine a more screwed-up occupation by the willing of the unwilling.

•  Pakistan teeters on anarchy, that would be nuclear Pakistan with its rising tide of terrorism in Wiziristan, home of bin Laden.

• Iran is about to be bombed if Cheney, the Neocons and Israel have their way. If they succeed in their mission they will have duplicated the mindless reasons for entering Iraq.

• Syria was bombed a few weeks ago, with or without US permission, it hardly matters any more to an increasingly lawless Israel.

•  Now we learn from Time that Israel may be About to Attack Hizballah in Lebanon?

And Rice seeks Mideast peace deal while Bush in office?

Wouldn’t that be a monumental irony. Palestine as the only peaceful enclave(s) in the widening carnage of the Middle East.
