What has gone on for the last couple of weeks? Have we been observing a PM following a President around, like an adolescent?
Have we been witnessing a President of the USA, and our PM addressing very serious issues that are emerging in the world?
Is it just about a couple of thousand troops playing was games for six months of the year, as occurs now, or is it about much more?
Maybe it is more than that. Maybe it is about positioning ourselves to be a part of the rising trade and economies of Asia.
It has been said, our PM has always been pro American.
Are we now witnessing the new world order that has been evolving since the fall of the USSR in the 1980’s?
At the same time, there have been declines in the economies of Europe and America.
Have we a USA President and PM with the guts and foresight to grab the opportunities available with both hands?
I do not believe we have seen the new world order that many predicted back in 1980′s. Some seen the future as America being the winner and would rule supreme. I have never believed this would happen. I believed at that time, a there would be a decline in the USA, as in the USSR.
I believed at that time, the USA would go the way of the USSR. I did not see America remaining the supreme ruling power. I saw power becoming more dispersed, among many countries.
I have not seen much evidence to say I was wrong since then.
Are we on the edge of a sea change?
Where are the media analyses and stories that attempt to tell us what is going on?
It will be interesting to see what comes out of the Bali talks this weekend.
Maybe I am just a dreamer.
What do others think? Is the world in flux of change? If it is, is that a bad thing, especially for Australia?
