Well, if there are going to be 3 days of rage in protest, I guess we'll find out how many people were killed because of it on Saturday.

I suppose similar to the power sharing agreement of the Northern Ireland parliament, but that did come at the price of submitting to terrorists.
Settlement is usually achieved through compromise, and there were terrorists on both sides.

That, and uniting Israel and Saudi against Iran. Trump's world is black and white.

At a black-tie dinner on the eve of his inauguration, Donald Trump expressed supreme confidence that his 36-year-old son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a political and diplomatic neophyte, would succeed in brokering what he has called the “ultimate deal”: a lasting peace between Israel and Palestine. “If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can. All my life I‘ve been hearing that’s the toughest deal to make, but I have a feeling Jared is going to do a great job,” Trump declared.

For all his protestations to the contrary, Trump has now shown himself to be the politician's politician.

And how has he achieved this?

By dumping common sense and demonstrating an amazing ability to cock up every decision he makes.

Trump antics are providing column miles for the journalists at the Washington Post and New York Times while Pence and his men are working on the real business of rolling out Republican policy. I bet in 20 years time Republicans will rate him as one of the greatest US Presidents.

If Trump carries on though, there might not be a "in 20 years time"

I thought it was Pence who was being suggested as a greatest President. Trump's achievements (if any) will be largely forgotten, I think, like Nixon's opening diplomacy with China.

I think that is subjective, it depends how far back you want to go.

Just to be clear, which side are you suggesting did not have active terrorists at the time of the negotiation of the GFA?

We all know neither side were whiter than white, but McGuniess and Adams were cold blooded murderers.

Did anyone else notice that from 10m30sec until the end of his announcement his speech was getting impaired?
