Colin Powell is in Isreal and Palestein, again trying to broker a peace between the Jews and Arab Palestinians.
And every one laughs.
No one believes it will help any more. They look at the situation and see it utterly hopeless.
I am looking at the man, and think he may be the best chance they have right now.
This is General Colin Powell we are talking about. The former Head of the Joint Chiefs. He has been on a battlefield and seen his friends die. He has been a commander and ordered men to commit acts which would lead to their deaths. He has led the entire military complex of the most powerful nation on earth. He now is the very embodiment of this country’s foriegn policy.
This man is one big ass 900 pound gorilla. You better give him whatever banana he asks for.
