But remember everyone, Arabs only understand force

So Syria was attempting to negotiate a peace deal with Israel, until Olmert walked away over the summer. The deal-breaking condition for Olmert? That the negotiations go public.

Um, okay.

No wonder Netanyahu's leading in the polls again. I don't know what the hell is up here. Damascus and Jerusalem are both denying this report, for what it's worth. I'm not sure I believe them -- there's been rumours since before Sharon took office of negotiations between Syria and Israel.

As glib as it is to reduce the Middle East problems down to a bag of junk food, but there's got to be something out there that can dumb it down to the point where even the rednecks will understand what you're saying.

"Eh...so by bomin em dere's gunna be more of em"

'Yes, and if we're not carefull, they'll systematically bomb every high-end parts manufacturer in the world, depriving your beloved NASCAR of the trannys it needs to get reved up'

"Hey...here this about the Doritos?"

He tells all of his friends, and so on.
