The economy is good in Washington, D.C. The government is self-sustaining. It generates jobs.

One sunny morning before arriving at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) national policy conference, I see three slim teens on the King Street (Alexandria) shuttle. One has her head scarf wrapped in the traditional Muslim style.

I doubt if anyone will catch this "Hail Mary" for a touchdown. The truth is no one knows what the outcome of such an escalation will be. In war you often experience unintended consequences.
