    This wasn't the brightest move, I know it's not the government, but it's been kinda weird there lately:

    Keep in mind the majority of Jordan's people are now Palestinians.... there are many radicals in the nation... Abdullah can only do so much, and if he were to declare war like his father did, the West would be up in arms about human rights violations (and understandably so, because King Hussein II gave no quarter, showed no mercy to the terrorists when the PLO tried to take over in the 70's)

    In retrospect, giving no quarter and showing no mercy to the terrorists may not have been a bad idea.

    Of course, that was the only thing that saved the Hassehimite Dynasty (sp?) from the terrorists....
