The world regroup

Syria’s starting to be a real horror scene. We can believe it; childs killed, population intoxicated, guns, missiles, chemical weapons … To talk about it & move, the G20 regroup in Russia, on wednesday 4th.


The G20 is a group of 20 countries, who normally regroup every year, compose by Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, European Union, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom and United Sates.  This year, in St. Petersburg, Russia, they have to talk about fostering freer trade, creating stronger financial regulations, red-tape reduction and job creation. For sure, and Paul Martin say it, they will have to discuss the situation in Syria. Why? Because, all together, the countries represent two-thirds of the world population. That‘s huge!  BUT, Vladimir Poutine (prime minister of Russia) refuse to talk about the actual Syria situation because Russia’s one of the Syria staunchest allies.

Obviously, G20 should use their power. Being in might of 80% world trade is not nothing. I believe that the world have to move about the critical situation in Syria. Even if Russia do not want to cooperate with the 19 others, it’s time to do something with them; the conflict’s during since the last 2 years and an aft.

On the others part of the reunions, who include creation of jobs , fostering freer trade, create stronger financial regulations and red-tape reduction, countries should invest more money on the base of their power : population. 500 millions of people are still considered being poor.  If governments invests just in vital things, it would be so much easier, no?
