US to revoke aid to 'Palestinians' if 'Palestinian Authority' disbands?

Has 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen outsmarted himself by threatening to disband the 'Palestinian Authority' if the 'peace process' collapses? Get a load of this exchange from Monday's State Department press briefing (Hat Tip: Arutz Sheva).
QUESTION: Are you telling Abbas not to keep issuing statements and proclamations that they are going to sort of just close shop with the PA and turn over the occupation responsibility to the Israelis?
MS. PSAKI: Well, let me speak to that, because it’s an important question. That – we’re aware, of course, of these reports and comments. That type of extreme step would obviously have grave implications. A great deal of effort has gone into building Palestinian institutions by Palestinians as well as the international community, and it would certainly not be in the interests of the Palestinian people for all of that to be lost. We – the United States has put millions of dollars into this effort. It would obviously have very serious implications for our relationship, including our assistance going forward. And as I just noted, of course, the parties are continuing to work to find the basis for extending the negotiations. Ambassador Indyk is there to help facilitate that, and that’s where our focus is.

Is Abu Bluff about to find out that the world doesn't give a damn about the 'Palestinians' unless they can be used as a club against the Jews?
