The Most Under-Reported Geopolitical Story Of The Week

Joe Biden Abbas

In all the talk about healthcare and everything else, this story got shockingly little attention.

VP Joe Biden went to Israel, and actually made pointed comments about Israel settlements, and his belief that they’ve been an impediment to Peace in the Middle East.

It’s obvious what’s going on. Obama is using the Vice President to say things he can’t comfortably say politically.

Don’t expect any big changes yet, but as Israel issues have huge ramifications across the Middle East, and thus big business implications (oil, trade, etc.) it’s important to watching this seed of a story.
