The bottom line…
In my perfect world, and probably your’s, here is what needs to happen… The following countries, in alphabetical order: Belgium, China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Korea (both north and south should be invited to participate), The Netherlands, Pakistan, The United Kingdom, and The United States, should all be invited to sit down, around a very large round table. Once there, they need to “seriously” discuss how to end the bombing, killing, death, destruction, and what I foresee as the continued path to the possible end of the world as we know it.
Now I’m not exactly sure what I perceive as “the possible end of the world as we know it…” But it should be clear to one and all, with multiple wars going on between numerous countries, adversaries and terrorist organizations, not to mention whatever it is that North Korea is attempting to do, or might do; all is not well.
In general, the various historical issues that relate to religion, control and power, borders, tribal disputes, oil or money, all need to be addressed. Hopefully I haven’t missed anything. But I do believe that if things are taken seriously, and can be reasonably discussed and possibly solved, future generations might have a chance. Except of course, for those issues that relate to “religion, control and power, borders, tribal disputes, oil or money…” But I’m sorry, it just ain’t worth the end of one more child’s life.
Enough is enough…
Peace. I am Bob Danon, and integrity does matter.
