Middle East without Uncle Sam
Here's a link to my latest piece for Antiwar.com. It notes the fact that some baby steps toward peace between Israel and her neighbors are underway -- and that the U.S., described by so manmy as the essential "honest broker" in the Middle East (though most in the Middle East consider the U.S. to be Israel's lap dog, not always justly, but that's the perception) had little or nothing to do with any of them. Imagine a Middle East without U.S. presence and influence. People would have to resolve their own problems! With U.S. influence seriously on the wane thanks to the stupid war in Iraq, they're starting to do so.
