@ Donald in VA.. Not just Iraq, the U.S. has been spreading fears for most of the 20th Century the world over, why you think United Technologies is practically solo in rising revenue. Peace sounds good, so why not start by having Americans insists that Israel implements all U.N. resolutions passed since 1948. After all, American envoys on behest of the leadership did vote in favor, did not abstain or vetoed them. You may also ask your Secretary Clinton to abstain in the future from vetoing any U.N. resolution passed by the majority members of SC. That will be a good start and may establish a convincing argument for those that call for peace in the Middle East. So far all we see is death and destruction by the Israeli Irgun and Hagganeh Terrorists.

Madam Secretary,

Life is good, and then you get to be Sec. of State...it doesn't get much better than that. You now have "the best job in the world" according to the last Secretary.

Here's wishing you much success and to the success of DoS as well in meeting the challenges that await.

@ SNP in Syria -- I just read on the news that Isreal pulled out of Gaza. I think we all would like to see peace between Isreal and Hamas/Palestinians. I believe it goes farther than just getting United Nation resolutions. Both sides need to communicate and break bread not heads over there. The first step in peace is being a good neighbor. How does Hamas explain making home made rockets if they are truly upstanding towards peace? It's equally interesting about Isreal how they continue to press knowing the innocent people that were hurt in this war. If I had all the answers, I would be the richest person in the world. I do know this we all can live together in peace without war, we can communicate freely and have some faith for mankind.

My prayers will always be for peace and goodwill to mankind. We all can be good neighbors without destroying our flags. We can break bread, drink wine and celebrate and not destroy human life! Then people of all generations can sit down with each other and enjoy the company, not get into arguments over settlements and continue destroying. My simple solution is both sides need to dine with each other and party like it's 1999. Open the bubbly and drink, eat and have a good time. Blast the music and just party in the streets. Both sides need to offload all the anger that exists between them. A party just might end this turmoil once and for all. Open the wine bottles, eat jewish and arab food, and just have fun for a change!

I am a Hillary voter who is delighted to see you as Secretary of State although I still believe you should be president.

I urge you to re-examine what you know about the facts on the ground in the Palestine conflict and take a more even position. Israel is not the noble state that the American media claim and the Palestinian people deserve serious treatment for all the injustice they have suffered since 1948.

Thank you for listening and best of luck with your job.

@ SNP in Syria -- Thank-you and may we all celebrate peace one day. Drink and enjoy without weapons or rockets. We are people... after all. People also need to work out their problems without the use of force. It would be an awesome day for both Arabs and Jews dancing in the streets, hugging one another, and working together not against one another. Sharing interest even within their cultures. This would be a happy day for everyone!
