"As long as a suicide bomber can kill an average of 5 Israelis (or Americans) and wound 10 more per bomber, they'll keep doing for the next 1000 years. It's a great exchange rate."

Actually, its NOT. Far more Palestinians have died in the past year than Israelies. If a suicide bomber kills 5 and the Israeli Army kills 50 in retaliation, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is NOT a good strategy (and, more importantly, every time a suicide bomber slaughters women and children, the world is MORE likely to support further killing Israel's part).

BOTH sides are led by barbarians, so no end is in site until BOTH sides decide to put reasonable men in power (what are the odds of that happening anytime soon?).
