Advice to Obama

Brent Scowcroft offered his advice to Obama on a show on CNN with Fareed Zakaria: solve the Palestinian Israeli conflict and the rest of the Middle East will come in order. Not because of the importance of this conflict to the rest of the Middle East, but because it forms a psychological barrier. Once it is resolved there will be hope for everything else to be settled. Just like the election of Obama broke a psychological barrier in the US and generated hope that anything can happen.
