Reader comment on item: Searching for Peace

It would be of interest to see the author comment one way or another on the emerging effort by Israel to pay off Hezbollah for quiet on the Northern border.
And relatedly, on the issue of the protests in Iran, the fact that there seems to be a strike in the oil sector seems to be wonderful news. But I wonder how much this is reduced in importance by the fact 1) that the strikes are in the Khuzestan province, namely in Ahwaz, which has long been a separatist region and 2) the emerging bipartisan stupidity in Washington, toward pivoting away from KSA. And where, oh where, is the missing oil going to come from? Not Russia, certainly. The WH is already getting supply now from the Maduro government. So where is the shortfall going to be coming from? Hmm, one wonders. Will anything stop the administration in their never-ending quest to realign Mideast policy toward the Ayatollahs? Will the bipartisan geniuses in Congress who support "reassessment" with KSA not understand that this is a zero-sum game?
