Wow, Timmie actually sounds sensible here. What's up with that?
It's amazing everyone wants to REWARD terrorism

Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden gave Arafat a blank check to encourage the morons to blow themselves up with women and children as primary targets. It is not going to end, I looked up baboon in the dictionary and Russert was an example.

Who made elceted this man!
Gee Tim, have you noticed how the suicide bombings have decreased to almost zero occurrence since Israel has been in the West Bank? What's wrong with letting them finish the job Arafat has refused to start...specifically, clean house!

"Because he realizes that if he wants to continue his war on terrorism globally, if he wants to continue his war on terrorism against Saddam Hussein, he has to bring peace at least a cease-fire to the Middle East. "
And that's why Iraq, Iran, and every terrorist group such as Hammas, El Aqsa, Hezballah, Islamic Jihad etc. will do everything in their power to undermine any ceasefire or negotiations. As soon as there is any progress, one or more of these groups will commit fresh atrocities and derail the process again. They need to be wiped out, period.

Israel is now in charge of this situation. They can and must finish the job they have started. Their final move should be to flush out Afarat and the 70 terrorists with him; of course, Afarat should be spared so he can live in shame like his buddy Clinton. As for the other 70, kill them all if possible.

"So lets try...at least a cease-fire ....so we can once again refocus the worlds attention on this war against terrorism. And, whos a central player in all this? Saddam Hussein. ....people are distracted, if you will, by the crisis in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Its difficult to get the world to listen to the president on Saddam Hussein, even though they know the reality."
And, this, IMO is the essence of the president's actions.
Isreal has had 7 days to round up the Palestinian terrorists and the suicide bombings have stopped (for now).---And, Isreal may even be looking for a way out at this point.
It's time to refocus the world on stopping the source of terrorism: Saddam Hussein.
I'm just really disappointed our representative will be Powell.
The president realizes that timing now is such that people on both sides realize this could spin out of control and it was time for the United States to move
Gotta love Russert.. When Israeli civilians are being killed by suicide bombers, then its normalcy, but when Israel strikes back its things spinning out of control.
The Israelis have had seven days to deal with the terrorist attacks against the people of Israel.
Right, they get only seven days and we get seven months
Israelis and Americans have pointed out that in the last 48 hours there have been no suicide bombs
And since 9-11 there have been no suicide bombers here, yet we have not stopped our incursion into Afghanistan.
and they think that some of the Israeli actions have in fact brought about some results.
All the more reason NOT to cut them short
I do think that the president tried very hard to put forward an even-handed approach.
I wonder how we'd feel if someone offered us an "even handed" approach with Al Qaeda? I wonder how we'd feel if our friend(?) told us that Osama is not a terrorist, but rather a "partner for peace"? and that we need to stop our incursions in Afghanisan?
Oh paaaaaalease already the hypocrisy is making me sick!
