    Gone the way of the WTO, G-7, World Court, EU, UN, Copenhagen summit and nearly every world body the developed states have erected to coordinate a global government overpowering nation states: death by gridlock. Or perhaps death by insubordination amongst developing nations.

    We are really just a hop skip and a jump away from the next world war.

    These multinational bodies sometimes provide jaw-jaw as an alternative to war-war and most of the time that is enough to pay for their keep

    sure, willie. But this time they couldn't fend off the protectionism that led to WWII.

    I guess some people think we should have ignored Pearl Harbor. Go figure.

    But, the OP is gibberish anyway. I doubt he actually knows what the G's are. :lol:
