Diplomacy has never worked in the Mid East,and it will not work now. Who is going to guarantee the Peace,the United States,the United Nations? We had intelligence units in south Lebanon,there were U.N. observers there,and the Hezbollah managed to stock pile fifty thousand missles,and know one knew about it. The reason Israel pulled out,was twenty five thousand three hundred attacks by the Hezbollah,and was the desire of Sharon,... not to diplomacy on the part of the U.S. Anyone think Iraq is a diplomatic sucess? Golda Meir was a giant on the Mid East scene. She became Prime Minister at the age of seventy one,and was suffering from lymphatic cancer. At a meeting with Nixon,Nixon told her he would trade three Generals for one of the Generals in Israel. Meir said,"I will take General Motors,General Electric,and General Dynamics". She lived in Lebanon with her husband,before moving on to Israel. Too bad she is not alive today,and President of the United States.

You are right, she would have made a great U.S. President but would have really upset the left if you think GWB is a warmonger.</font color>

GWB had a choice,and chose to con the U.S. into Iraq. We will never know,but I don't think Meir did more than respond to attacks. She was tough,and pragmatic,with a complete wit,twice that of GWB.
