Wrong: the Status Quo IS sustainable

Reader comment on item: Obama's Failed Middle East Speech

Submitted by Tziona (United Kingdom), May 22, 2011 at 06:12

Obama is wrong when he says "the status quo is unsustainable", the status quo is the status quo purely because it IS sustainable. The status quo is the point of entropy reached at this time, entropy is what happens if you don't keep adding energy to a system (adding fuel to the fire), the system degrades to a natural resting point, equilibrium - politically you can call this a stalemate.

This is as good as it can ever get for the Jews when dealing with anti-Semites (like the Palestinians), the best we can hope for in this case is that the Palestinians are unable to add more energy into their side of the system so that equilibrium can prevail and there can be some semblence of peace. What Obama is saying is that he is determined to pump more energy in to the system to start it up again so that the equilibrium is destroyed and war starts up all over again - in other words "the status quo is unsustainabe" really means "we need to heat up this mother... and get the war going again".
