He really is... he is expecting the world to see that the emperor has no clothes. And no withdrawal back to the pre-1967 borders.

Sounds like he's giving them an ultimatum.

Act like a civilized nation, prove live in peace with your neighbor Isreal, and you will have the state you desire. If not do so, then you will share the fate of the Taliban.

Bush is demanding a peaceful, democratic, financially honest Palestinian state.

Since there is no precedent for this, it is unlikely to occur. And Israel can then say, well, you know what the conditions are for peace....

Bingo!

His vision isn't a lie; he is telling them what they have to do to get a state. It's up to them now.

It sounds like a great speech. Israel only has to respond when Palestinians act like human beings.

account12 is one of those people who comes itno a thread stirs up trouble and then you never see that person respond in that thread again. I have seen it time and time again. ignore them and they will eventually go away. Or at least register under a new name.

The Palestinian state he is describing will never happen; his 'vision' is a lie.

Perhaps Bush knows Arafat will never go quietly...I'd be inclined to agree with that. Nevertheless, there should be no state for terror.

Any statement that terror attacks must cease? I assume so, but I only got to hear a little bit of the speech.

So, did he not propose a "provisional Palestinian State" like all the "news" services have been predicting????

They said it so much, I am sure that's what most Americans think the President is saying today.

Is he proposing the Provisional Pali State or not???

If not - way to go "leakers" - you were wrong!

If the leaks were on purpose or not - good job, President Bush! Maybe you have found some of your leakers....or maybe the leakers did their job just as you wanted them to! Please report in full what was said. I will go to WhiteHouse website soon to read the speech also.

The State Department will fudge all the performance benchmarks as they always do. Once Bush declares his support under certain conditions, the conditions will never be upheld.

He says if they work HARD they can get this done in three years.

Now he is saying it will be a guide to ALL countries around the world in the same shape as Israel/PA.

To Israelis: The Palestinian Authority has rejected your open hand and responded with terror.

To Pallies: You have been treated as pawns and deserve better.

Arafat and his cronies will NEVER leave--they want the money, they want the totalitarian power. They will not leave because their goal of pushing Israel into the sea is not achieved.

Bush's plan is appropriate to the situation. Which means, of course, that it will be immediately rejected by the Palestinians, the terror organizations, and most other Arab/Islamic states.

That means that it serves it's proper purpose quite nicely. It also means that someone better put a watch on the upper floor and roof of the State Dept. building: There's probably a whole lot of distraut Ivy League diplomats about ready to jump off...

The ragheads will never do anything except create more and more terror.

Yes, but NOW they've been warned. Live peacefully, or else.
