Oh, that'll help.

Guess who's in the Middle East trying to jump-start the Peace Process:
"JERUSALEM (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney sought to coax Israel and the Palestinians to follow through on promises to forge a peace deal as he began an Easter weekend trip to Jerusalem and the West Bank." [...]

"Cheney's discussions "will involve the ways forward in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and Israel's right to defend itself against terrorism and protect its citizenry," McBride said before the vice president left Saudi Arabia."
Maybe it's just me, but the US government sending Dick Cheney to the Middle East to advocate for peace is kind of like the bank sending Nick the Enforcer to your house to pick up your mortgage payment.
