Could the U.S. conduct a two state resolution for Israel and Palestine?

No. The best time-frame was during the Bush Administration, with Abbas and pre-Netanyahu.

But honestly, in the 1990's people saw this as the last real conflict in the world, the one obstacle to world peace. Now the world, and that region in particular, is a lot more screwed up. And it makes this conflict look minor in comparison.

And really, while we should help, but it's not the responsibility of the United States in particular.

Ideally, we'd get to the point where negotiations could be conducted again and a solution would be hashed out.

However, that time isn't now. And the idea of the US imposing a solution via the UN is probably the clearest way to turn a low boil conflict very, very hot in a hurry.

I am afraid, increasingly, it is too late. And, in any case, it is not the US that can do it. At least, not through active diplomatic action.

Imposition isn't the way now I agree.  As a conservative I don't like using the phrase "sit down and talk" but if it saves lives in the long run some sort of negotiations are helpful.  These countries have long histories and with long histories come long memories.  It goes back to Isaac and Ishmael unfortunately.

Just wait until a new eruption of violence is back on the TV screen. Meanwhile Netenyahu and Abbas turn up the rhetoric at the UN and the rest of the world rinses itself selling weapons on the cheap (or in the US's case, actually giving them millions to buy weapons) then having to rebuild Gaza/West Bank with humanitarian aid.

We don't care about violence if it's just a bunch of assholes stabbing civilians.

Well they are rebuilding the tunnels with that UN humanitarian aid (and using children to build them) so you've got that to be proud of.
