Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Movement toward Mideast peace

The White House is downplaying expectations that the invitations to both Sharon and Abbas to come to Washington this Spring (separately) will lead to peace. And they should play down such expectations. Yet, the movement toward a serious settlement is clearly on the way. Condi Rice didn’t visit with both men for nothing. The first steps have been taken. All this, of course, has to do with my prediction about Bush’s Nobel Peace Prize. My note of a few weeks ago seemed to anger a lot of people, both on the left and right. Some have misunderstood me. Let me be clear. I do not care anything about the Nobel Peace Prize. I don’t think Bush does, either. I said Bush would get it only to point to something obvious: Even the left, and the international left, even the MSM, and every other (well, almost every other) Bush hater will have to admit at a certain point (probably three years away, meybe less) that Bush might merit the Prize, if it were based on merit. Therefore, chances are very good that he will get it, if the world were just. If the Prize were based on merit he will end up getting it. That’s all I meant. Although it has to be admitted--the way the world works and all--that Jimmy Carter may get another one for his books of poems, or, that Bill Clinton will get one for helping the Tsunami victims. I hope you get it.

I think that point in time is closer to 10 years(or more)... by then the opposition to George Bush will fade and the rest of the world will award the prize to GWB out of hatred for the then to be current, isolationist policy that refuses to oust evil dictators even though many world citizens die as a result of U.S. inaction. By then the world will hate us for closing military posts overseas that support the local economies, no doubt leading to the deaths of children who can then no longer afford medical care.
