It seems ironic to me that the man who has done very little for peace in the Middle East in his 10 years in power, worst still, the man who helped start a war in the Middle East which has decreased stability, not increased it, is now set to become the Middle East envoy for the US, Russia, the UN and the EU.

If I was him I'd put my feet up, write my memoirs and sit back and wait for the millions to roll in.
