    I care about the Troubles in N. Ireland. There's a lot of people up there
    who could probably live tolerbly well with each other and let the
    Loyalist/Republican clash fade away. But then you've got the UVF and all
    them other Loyalist Ulster folks and you've got the IRA, who can't let it

    A parallel to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict might be strained, excpet at
    least for the hopeful part about the middle grounders (Jewish and
    Arab/Muslim) who would like to reach out to eachother and let their troubles

    I watched "Politically Incorrect" with Bill Maher last night and have come
    to the concusion that we in the US do have a deep set tendency to view that
    conflict through the lenses of pro-Israeli sentiment. It's hard for us to
    see the Palestinian POV. It seemed from some of Dubya's rhetoric and
    Powell's stances that the US would have a more neutral or even-handed
    approach. If we can't be neutral, this matter needs to rest solely with the
    U.N. The US does NOT need to commit our forces to that region as
    peacekeepers. I don't think we've got the necessary objectivity, plus I'm
    for commitments more in line with the Weinberger doctrine.
