The Same Thing? Politico-Morphing
Russian Dolls featuring President Barack Obama & Russian President Dmitry Medvedev
Is it us or is Politics becoming a bit similar? Here is a collection of stories that seem to suggest so....
UN Meeting last Month:
"As Russian, US and Chinese leaders delivered their speeches before the UN, it became apparent that global tendencies are changing and the alliances that seemed unlikely only a year ago have already started to form.
"All three leaders built their speeches on similar schemes – they presented a list of challenges that humanity in general, and the United Nations in particular, must, in their view, concentrate on.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev gave five points of the development program: creating a body to coordinate international economic activities, ensuring the security of energy supplies worldwide, strengthening the UN’s role, nuclear disarmament and tackling regional conflicts. US President Barack Obama said that there were five challenges the international community has to face now: terrorism, local conflicts, nuclear proliferation, climate change and poverty. Chinese President Hu Jintao said that the key issues were international security, free trade, joint fighting against climate change and promoting international tolerance and diversity."
Although Medvedev and Obama’s reports were very different in style, both speeches were strikingly similar in essence."
