WASHINGTON — To win the presidency, Barack Obama needs only to battle John McCain to a tie on foreign policy and national security.That means Obama has no need for a great triumph during his trip this week to the Middle East and Europe. His goal is to look safe, sound and competent, and that's how he's playing things.More and more, 2008 is taking on the contours of 1980. Then, the country, desperate for change after the battering it felt it took during Jimmy Carter's term, was eager to vote for a new direction and a charismatic leader-----

UN Resolution 242

Because Palestine patience has reached its limits with Israeli refusal to abide by the unenforced UN Resolution No.242(1973) in which virtually the whole world, including America, agreed that Israel should withdraw from Arab lands. But the world has only pain lip service to the agreement and, until now, no attempt has been made by the world powers to compel Israel to obey it, and she will never obey it unless forced to do so by the actual armed intervention of a super power. Since the Palestine are now agree, united and determined--backed by Russia, Asia, Africa and Europe--that America must persuade Israel to withdraw or America will get no more oil from the Arabs; and since America will never force Israel to do this, and her economy will collapse without the oil, America herself will feel forced to fight for Israel and Arab oil. It will cause end to this perpetual irreconcilable war between American-Israeli interests in the Mideast.
