Come now abuaardvark...you know better than to judge a summit by a picture.

Politics is not reserved to photographic evidence, or lack there of.

Nur al-Cubicle

Oh, that's quite a royal grimace.

Nas - yeah, but a picture can be worth a thousand words! Seriously, the failure of the summit is on its own terms, and has way less to do with the King than with Bush... but the pictures do tell a story.

The summit and it's likely outcome are the likely reason the king keep himself scarce. Why get yourself associated with a downward spiral. It's just stupid to think he would. He, like most around him, have little hope. It's unfortunate to note that Bush has nothing but his hat in hands to offer the Arab world that he more or less single-handedly screwed over. It's just a monster question mark hanging over Iraq and its future. Bush would do better -- and with the king's amiable presence to boot -- to now engage the hurting Israelis and get a Palestinian state established before he leaves office. Iraq...tsk tsk, tsk. It's a mess. :-S

yeah but a picture's worth a thousand words doesn't mean anything if those thousand words don't mean anything :-D

that being said, the purpose for the king was engage the palestinian issue and provide some safe ground for iraq in hopes for unity. it is a predictable failure but it nevertheless achieves the raising of jordan's status on the political landscape in the region for both the east and the west.

we are the country that feels like the one man island in shark infested waters...the King is just trying to stay on the dry land.
