THE WORLD IN A NUTSHELL: WHEN ALLIES CANNOT AGREE | November 29, 2011

United we stand, divided we fall.

The American-European summit in Washington D.C. coincided with the opening session of the Durban Climate Change Conference 2011.

The supposedly steadfast allies spoke of ways to circumvent the world crisis by means of joint efforts to prevent Europe’s debt dilemma to spread to the U.S. coasts across the Atlantic.

On the other front, the United States, jointly with China, maintains a firm stand against the European posture of complying with the soon defunct Kyoto Protocol.

How can problems be solved when there is double-talk amongst allies?

How can any solution be deemed in a global world issue when the players refuse to admit the cause of the problem?

How can the global world expect solutions to a crisis when no priorities are set other than those tending to apply oxygen to financial institutions that were the very epicentre of the economic earthquake?

How can the leaders of the United States and the European Union claim that their meeting was productive when the real relevant issue was left aside to avoid further misunderstandings?

I cannot but repeat myself saying:- “The real problem is not economic rather one of ethics.”

Our world leaders cannot see further than the tip of their noses in their stately myopia whilst 25.000 human beings die every day, forgotten in the speculators’ quest for fast earnings.
