The Road Map is Doomed

Reader comment on item: "A Shot at Peace": Can the U.S. Enforce the "Road Map"

Submitted by Jay Vail (United States), Jul 9, 2003 at 13:19

I wish I could be hopeful about the fate of the Road Map, but I'm afraid that it, like its predecessors, is doomed because of the failure to involve the Palestinians' paymasters in the process.

So far I have not seen any signs of efforts to engage any of these three countries.
