Excuses for Not Moving Ahead with Peace Plan: Dead Plan, Wrong Group?

The United States is reluctant to allow the United Nations Security Council to consider an Arab League peace proposal with the goal of ending all Arab-Israeli conflicts. AP reports the Bush administration’s reluctance centers on which bureaucracy spearheads the peace effort, preferring the Quartet over the United Nations. The Quartet drafted the Roadmap to Peace then sat idly by as Israel and Palestine ignored their responsibilities under the agreement. The target date for the Quartet’s independent Palestinian state? 2005, a year already past.

So Bush wants to rely on a dead plan instead of taking the opportunity to actively work for a broader peace in the region. Why? Cause he ain’t done warring yet…
