President Bush last night claimed a war in Iraq would set the stage for peace in the Middle East. He was speaking at the American Enterprise Institute. Bush also drew a comprehensive picture of post-war Iraq and discussed humanitarian missions. Under pressure from Arab and European states, Bush said the U.S. is committed to a Palestinian state and that Israel must end the further settlement of Palestine. But he did not set any deadlines nor detail any specific steps toward this end.
