No Middle East Peace Without Victory

Someone earlier today mentioned that Rush Limbaugh mentioned his ideas for a Mid-East "Peace Plan"...well here it is...he touches on topics such as a "Palestinian State", the failures of the Oslo Process, Israel defending herself, etc. (I also suggest listening to the audio clip). Here's an excerpt:

Let's just cut to the chase on this, can we, folks? It's time to remind you of the Limbaugh Doctrine when it comes to the Palestinians, the Israelis, and the Middle East. You can give the Palestinians a state all you want, but it isn't going to lead to peace in the Middle East. You can give them a state, but it's not going to be a traditional state or a country, in the sense that we or other nations are – and it's not because they "can't handle democracy," as you can hear me explain below.

There isn't going to be peace in that region just like there's not going to be peace with Iraq or North Korea until there's victory. Peace comes after victory. One of these two sides, Iraq or the United States, will have to lose and then there will be peace. One of these two sides, Israelis or Palestinians, will have to lose. And until that happens, there isn't going to be peace. It's a hard, cold reality. Some of you may not wish to face it. Some of you may choose not to look at it that way, but history says otherwise.
