My Comment: A friend of mine sent me an email with Ralph Peters' commentary and a quip that he finally found someone who was more pessimistic than I was when it comes to the Middle East.

On a side note, Ralph Peters forgot to mention the Palestinians .... but then again .... most people in the Middle East have already forgotten about them.
