The results of the study group as presented to POTUS Bush seem to attract little criticism thus far.
So, why is it that I find it to be based upon events that I cannot see as ever getting off the ground, still less proceed to any result. To invite discussion with Iran and Syria over the future shape of Iraq seems doomed to fail. They will insist upon concessions that our side cannot meet. Syria will want Golan Heights reclamation at the very least. Iran has a list of 'wants' where even a choice of runners would take far longer than we have in face of the rapidly deterioration situation in Iraq.
The Palestine/Israel situation will always put a total knock-down on anything being resolved in Middle Eastern strategy.
