*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While Europe commemorates the Atrocities of Deadly and Destructive World Wars of the Past, at the 100th Anniversary of the End of WW1 (1918-2018), both Regional and Global Peace is at Stake in the current USA's "Mid-Term" Elections (6/11/2018)...


France and Germany have just launched in Strasbourg an original March towards Paris' forthcoming World Forum for Peace, practically at the eve of USA Mid-Term Election, while waiting for Trump, Putin and around 60 Leaders, as well as UNO's Secretary General Antonio Guterrez, to arrive at that exceptional Rendez-vous.


---------------------------------------------------


Just 2 Days before an US Mid-Term Election exceptionaly Important for Peace in Korea/Nuclear, Syria and even Ukraine Issues, EU core's Franco-German couple marked a landmark Symbolic Top Event in Strasbourg's emblematic Cathedral, with Presidents Macron and Steinmeier, by kick-Starting a Longue March through Strasbourg's Region and other former Bordelines between the two Core EU Countries, for the Memory of the End of a devastating 1st World War, a Century ago (1918-2018), leading up to a Macron - Merkel meeting at the Historic Compiegne Castle, where the Armistice of 1908 had been Signed, the Week-End of November 11, near Paris, which awaits Next Sunday more than 60 Heads of State/Government from Europe and allover the World, invited by the French President, including USA's new President Don Trump, Russia's President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angie Merkel, UNO's Secretary General Antonio Guterrez, (etc), for a Joint Ceremony at the Arc of Triomphe, and a brand New International Paris' 2018 "Forum", now dedicated to "Peace".


Tha Word means a lot here, particularly accross those Borderline Areas of Former very Deadly BattleGrounds, and, Timely comming in the run up to May 2019 European Elections, it Naturally underlines EU's main Achievement, during more than 60 Years (1945 - 2018), to Help Saveguard Peace in Europe, after 85 Years with a Franco-German War and Two World Wars (1870-1945), which Killed many Millions of People, and provoked Immense Destructions, making also Europe lose its Historic 1st role in the World until then.


--------------------------------------------------------------


But Nowadays Global Peace is also at Stake in the Korean Nuclear Arms' Issue, where spectacular Progress recently made by Trump and Kim at Singapore needs for GOP's Conservatives of the 1st to Win the current "Mid-Term" Elections, in order to be able to implement its main clauses...


Indeed, a careful analysis of the landmark Singapore Agreement of June 2018, between new US President Don Trump and North Korea's Leader Kim Jong Un, clearly shows that, in Fact, the establishment of "New Relations", between US and DRPK, "for Peace and Prosperity", as well as "a Peace Regime" throughout all the "Korean peninsula", implying its "complete DeNuclearisation", in exchange of "Security Guarantees" to Northern Korea, need a Positive outcome of the 2018 Mid-Term Election for Trump's conservatives of the Republican Party (GOP).


This was made Obvious, among others, also by an interesting White House's Press Briefing, with new State Secretary Mike Pompeo, during which, a Journalist asked whether a Treaty will have to be adopted by the US, in order give those "Guarantees" to North Korea. This was the Only Question to which Pompeo did Not Reply yet, but skiped without any known explanation...


Simply because the formal Adoption of such a Treaty would necessitate, in practice, a Legal Procedure inside US Congress and Senate, whose Members face, on November 2018, an important "Mid-Term" Election :


=> I.e., GOP's Conservatives would Need to gain a Stronger Majority inside the Senate, in order Not to depend, No more, from 1 or 2 Shaky Votes, (contrary to what is the case until now), as well as to Maintain, more or less, their Clear Majority in the US Congress.


Otherwise, Dems' ("Socialists"/Liberals of US Democratic Party) systematic Opposition, might Block (or Alter) the Text of a Draft Treaty of Guarantees, Undermining the Trump - Kim Deal.


Because, in the eventual Absence of such Guarantees, obviouly, North Korea could Not risk to procede into a Full DeNuclearisation, (particularly as long as, in Addition, Heavy Economic Sanctions still persist).


And, at the Same Time, from the Other Side, the U.S. could Not definitively Lift the Sanctions, as long as North Korea has Not been substantialy DeNuclearized.


In other words, Both must Advance, in Parallel, almost at the Same Time : Guarantees and DeNuclearisation. And this, practically, needs an Efficient Control of Both the US Congress and Senate, from new US President Don Trump, (Comp. above).


In consequence, these 2018 "Mid-Term" Elections are of a Crucial Importance for Peace, given Dems' excessive War-Mongering currently...


Among Many other relevant Facts, it's not due to pure hazard the Fact that, f.ex., former Obama's Under State Secretary for Euro-Asian affairs, Mrs Nuland, known for her Interference in Ukraine's internal affairs, who has pushed towards a Brutal Clash and Bloody Divisions on 2014, cancelling an earlier Compromise Agreement signed by all Parties,
is nowadays living in Brussels from where her Husband reportedly publishes a lot of War-Mongering pseudo-"Analysis", repeating Warnings for a supposed "3rd World War" (sic) trend Against Russia, China, etc. !...


-------------------------------------------------------


+ Moreover, an impressive Series of many Facts clearly reveal that Wars risking to Affect Global Peace are a Traditional mark of Dems, while GOP's Conservatives, on the Contrary, are usualy much more enclined to seek Peaceful Agreements, throughout almost All USA's History !
F.ex. :


--------------------------


- Wilson (Dems) brought USA in the 1st World War, despite substantial public Opposition, particularly from Conservatives. Afterwards, Veterans were Abandoned,  without Financial or Education benefits, UnEmployment soared, followed by massive Strikes and Riots. Thus, American People's Majority droped Wilson, and Voted for a Conservative, Warren Harding.


- 2nd World War involvment for USA was Franklin Roosvelt's (Dems) responsibility. Conservative Leader, and his predecessor in US Presidency, Herbert Hoover, was opposed.


-----------------------------


- "Cold" War, and Korea War, added to Maccarthyism oppressive era inside the USA, the Deadly drop of the 1st Nuclear Bomb on Hiroshima - Nagasaki Civilian People, the Beginning of the Clash against Oppenheimer, and Rosenberg couple's Arrest and Conviction to Death, (despite even Albert Einstein's opposal), were ALL due to Harry Truman (Dems).


- On the Contrary, Armistice and Peace in Korea, the End of Maccarhyism and 1st Cold War, (as well as an Historic Plea against the Establishment's Deep State and the "Military-Industrial Complex"), were done during President Dwight Einsenhower, (a conservative).


------------------------------


- Vietnam War massive Military Interventions and Deadly Mess/Failure, (as well as Oppression against Dissidents inside the USA), were mainly Lyndon Johnson's (Dems) responsibility.

- On the Contrary, Peace in Vietnam, and "Detente" with China and Russia, came during Richard Nixon's presidency, (a Conservative).

+ Followed, Later-on, what is considered as "End of the Cold War" era, with Germany's (and all Europe's) ReUnification, during (Russia's Gorbatchef and USA's) George H. Bush senior (another Conservative). 


---------------------------------------------------------------


- The Bloody Wars in former Yugoslavia (1991-2001), at the Heart of Europe, were mainly a responsibility of Bill Clinton (Dems).


+ As was too the Ukranian Deadly Conflict (with many Civilian Victims, and a persisting Mess), added to a Clash against Russia, during Barack Hussein Obama's era (Dems), which included also the Bloody Syrian Conflict, and ISIS' murderous Islamist Terrorism, (etc).


++ In Addition, North Korea's Nuclear Arms' program apparently started to become potentialy Dangerous around 2013-2017, i.e. practically during Obama II, (Dems).


------------------------------------


 - On the Contrary, Not Any War Risking to Affect Global Peace has ever Started, anywhere in the Planet, during New US President Don Trump's mandate, (Conservative).


On the Conrary, he has strived to cultivate Friendly Relations on Political Issues with Chinese and Russian Presidents, (the latter currently Hampered by an obvious Hysteria of Dems), and succeeded to mark an UnPrecedented Historic Advance even with North Korea.


However, its Outcome, now depends, practically, on the 2018 Mid-Term Elections, not just for Korea, (See above), but also on Syria and Ukraine, and other "Hot" Issues...

Facing a 70% Abstention threat in 2009 Election, EU endorses EuroFora's idea for Citizens' debates on crucial EU decisions !

- Different views on "Europe's Future", should be debated among Citizens at June 2009 EU Elections, thanks to political Parties' "Manifestos", says EU Parliament's Report


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
A main idea, initiated and promoted by EuroFora's founders since 1997: the vital need to develop European Citizens' democratic right to actively participate in multilingual debates on EU decisions, is formally endorsed by the EU from 2009 !

The move is a key attempt to overcome "catastrophic" Polls which warn that only ...30% of Citizens are ready to vote in the forthcoming June 2009 EU Election !  This was revealed by EU Commission's vice-president, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, during a "hot" meeting of EU Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education, during the December 2008 Strasbourg session.

Wallstrom faced criticism, but also suggestions from various MEPs, naturally worried by Abstention threats which herself found even "worse" than in 1999 or 2004...

A Report on "Active Dialogue with Citizens",examined at the same time, presented some useful practical tips, on "facilitating Interviews"; etc., but also a  potentialy important call to "incorporate the conclusions of ...debates...into (EU) policies, and take into consideration the expectations that Citizens have of the EU when deciding". An amendment even implies that Citizens' participation in debates on EU decisions is a democratic "Right".

More importantly, it finds that  a Debate "on the Future of Europe", (as French President Nicolas Sarkozy has asked since 2007), would be a good idea " for the 2009 European parliamentary Elections", because "clarifying the political differences between the EU political parties would help citizens to identify themselves with, and choose between various concepts", for which "all parties (should) present their Manifesto".

A "Joint political declaration on Communicating Europe in Partnership", co-signed by "the European Parliament, Council and ... Commission", confirms that they "attach the utmost importance to improving communication on EU issues", by "enabling European citizens to exercise their right to participate in the democratic life of the Union, in which decisions are taken as openly as possible and as closely as possible to the citizens, observing the principles of pluralism, participation, openness and transparency".

This should "enable Citizens to exercise their right to express their views and to participate actively in the public Debate on European Union issues", while also "promoting the respect of multilingualism". In this regard, EU confirms its "wish to develop synergies with national, regional and local authorities as well as with representatives of Civil Society".

    It's since 1997 that a group of EuroFora's founders have officially presented a pioneer Project (then called "EIW", for "Europe in the World"), which aimed to develop Strasbourg's "Polyphonic music", by providing "Interactive information", on "main issues ... during the Decision-making process of European Organizations which engage in Transparent and Public Democratic Debates"

    This should be done, inter alia, by "exploring the potential of New Communication Tools (mainly Internet)", as well as classic-form debates, the 1997 EIW pioneer project's anounced in its "Synopsis". It was formally "accepted for evaluation" by EU Commission in Brussels in order to be examined for a grant in the framework of the "Research/Technology/Development (RTD) Programme in the field of Information Technologies", then called "ESPRIT", as a "Best Practice Pilot Project".

        But the vital, urgent Political need for EU to search new, efficient ways to reach the People and interact with European Citizens, was really felt in Brussels and elsewhere only after the unprecedented in History 1999 and 2004 Majority Abstention in EU Elections, followed by 3 "NO" in Referenda in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, on 2005 and 2008...
    In this New Political Landscape, we prepared a new, actualised and more developed version of our initial idea, in a simplified and more efficient form, thanks also to a large Experience accumulated during many years of EU/CoE/UNO Press work and Multi-lingual debates, with the New project "EuroFora" :

    On 2006 we presented in Public its main lines during Questions/Replies that we raised at two Press Conferences by EU Commission President, Jose Baroso, and mainly EU Commission's vice-President, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, together with EU Parliament's vice-president, Alejo Vidal-Quadras, in Strasbourg, (Videos available), and we reminded it at various brief contacts with Commissioner Wallstrom in 2007 and 2008.

    Meanwhile, a new Text was also presented for "EuroFora" Project mainly to certain Political and other personalities, at European, National or Regional/Local level, mainly in 2007, but also in 2008..

    Now, after the unexpected 2008 Irish "NO", and before the 2009 EU Elections, which are due to be of exceptionally crucial importance for Europe's Future, the moment has obviously come to launch that project, progressively, but in real practice.

    Whoever really cares for Europe and its Citizens is welcome to join, in one way or another. Only anti-European, anti-democratic, obscure or ignorant groups might oppose or attempt to "steal" and deviate the main idea.

    But European Citizens, incited by enlightened political leaders, are those who will finally write the real History.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
