I'm going to talk about some other things for a while.

Semi-Vacation: No, I won't be going to an undisclosed location. But I'm going to take a break from the political landscape for a while. Maybe just for today, I don't know. The Palestine question is in firm wait-and see mode. I for one think that the "militants" will use the few months of relaxed Israeli pressure to regroup for a renewed intifada. Israel knows this and will come roaring back in with guns blazing when the truce is broken, which it surely will be. (Update: Already?) Iraq, too, is idling, possibly for a few years of low-level attacks by hopeful former Baathists. A nice clip of Saddam walking spanish on Al-Jazeera would help. I'm inclined to think that he'll be in "exile" for some time. Plenty of places to hide over yonder.
