Opening the Middle East conference in Annapolis, George Bush has announced a joint agreement among Israeli and Palestinian leaders to reach a peace pact by the end of 2008.
Looks like I may have been wrong about Bush, he has achieved the impossible, he has made sure that there will be peace in the Middle East at last. Hat’s off to him, it is a unique achievement and a great testament to the man.
Nothing like this has ever been achieved before.
Apart from in 1993 that is:
But still, it is still quite a unique achievement getting these men together. Except that Bill Clinton managed it again in 1996.
And again in 1998, with a very ill looking King Hussein, who died a year later.
And one final time in 2000.
Even Bush has managed this before, back in 2003.
Perhaps not as unique as the Bush PR machine is making out, but a great photo op, and lets face it with the majority of Americans having memories like goldfish, probably what they will all remember Bush for.
