The St. Petersburg G20 summit has every chance of becoming the most fascinating of all similar, usually fairly routine events. It seemed, still recently promised death boredom. However, all these highly specialized topics were eclipsed by Syria - the upcoming little, unbeatable, but terribly instructive, American punitive action.
Summit can be one of the most awkward and uncomfortable in modern stories- writes the British "Independent". - And the theme of the Syrian crisis is likely to prevail in discussions in which two of the most influential people in the world, Putin and Obama, will come face to face.
Here and will not face! Because Obama knows best how and whence came the evidence from Asad’s use of chemical weapons. And he has no reason to talk with Putin about this topic. What should he show Putin? Powell tube with white powder? And because Obama’s tactical drawing on the margins of the forum is so that, God forbid! - Do not accidentally run into Putin.
Obama is not interested in any arguments against strikes against Syria. Because he knows all these arguments better than us. Moreover, they voiced them many times. However, nature takes its toll. It would seem that in this situation of complete understanding one could focus on the official agenda.
The official agenda of the G-20 summit: an analysis of the state and prospects of the world economy, the implementation of a framework agreement to ensure steady growth and reform of the international monetary system. If in essence, it was supposed to discuss what to do with insanely swollen public debts and how to save the banking system, which is not the only way to save the second time.
Ways out of the crisis is actually an interesting topic. However, discussing this with the current economic establishment is completely pointless. Because, first of all, it is a crisis of their theories, their pictures of the universe. More precisely, its collapse.
Here, finally, we have found the only possible way to solve world problems. Die is cast. God is your judge.
