Lou, isn't this just a "pox on both their houses" approach which allows them
to stand on the sidelines and declare themselves "for peace" and all things
good?  Sorry, I don't give them credit for anything.  They are either stupid
or willingly being manipulated.

Now we're getting somewhere.

I REALLY want to get to the bottom of this Soros' story.  He funds all kinds
of "liberal" projects, to include a 24 hour TV station (WorldVision) that
airs, among other things, Noam Chomsky.  Is he just providing a left cover
for his agenda, or is he himself "well intentioned."
