And let's also be clear -- This policy of enabling the Saudis in Yemen began under Obama and grew far worse under Trump. . It a truly American bipartisan disaster.

You'll be waiting a long time, Mark. Stop the Russia march? Have you noticed these many months Trump's preternatural determination to protect Putin and give Moscow the benefit of every doubt. Wake up, bro. smell the coffee; abandon the illusions

Yes indeed. But Dan that alignment of sun, moon, and stars is so preternaturally rare as to price us out of market. Hang a closed firvthe season sign on the odds of that occurring.

Not to put too fine a pint on it but reminds me of someone else. Gibbon was right. Word I is world's most disgusting pronoun.

An extraordinary piece. A hopeful reminder that we got through blue and gray; maybe we'll get through red and blue too. Could use a Lincoln though

Not at all sure. Sadat and Begin were an idiosyncratic pair - once a century, leaders particularly Sadat. And negotiating between states and issues on table much easier than I-P. Need great care in interpreting history

When your strategy in Afghanistan is based on the logic of not losing, you can do all kinds of things that in end being losers.

Spent a couple hours with my friend Saeb Erekat recovering from lung transplant. Saeb's family, his will and commitment to "unfinished business" helped see him through.

The emphasis here is on new not inherited wars. Will Trump find his?

Our last four Presidents all managed to wage new wars of varying characters and degrees. It's highly likely this one will too.

Abbas is being squeezed by Saudis; Egyptians; Israelis; and Trump. But no choice but to play this one out. Abbas never took PLO office seriously; nobody else did either; and he's waiting to see what ultimate deal initiative is all about.

An inconsequential move against an inconsequential office by an Adm. that loves to make a point not a difference. And this one won't matter much.

Really -- And when was the last time the Arabs have been on the march -- the 8th century? The Umayyads and the Abbasids?
