*Strasbourg/Critical News-ViewPoint/-  New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte's "flip-flop" on Russia's return back to a fully-fledged "G-8", instead of the current, curtailed and diminished "G-7", (provoked since 2014 by Former POTUS Barack Hussein Obama's "Miss Nuland"-monitored aufull Mess in Ukraine, previously a Peaceful and promising, European Culture Country), is not clear :


- Didn't the Italian People's large Majority vote to put, at last, an End to "Sanctions" against Russia, which Divided the European Continent and still Limit its Economic/Scientific and Technological Development, (as even the New Rome Government's explicitly Agreed Program reads) ?


- Why Turkey, which is notoriously accustomed to do very much Worse things than Russia, (from Genocides, to "Ethnic Cleansings", Military Invasions/Occupations, Massive and brutal Violations of Human Rights, local/regional and national Democracy trampled underfoot, Armed Bullying and War Threats, etc), is getting, these same years, instead of "Sanctions", on the Contrary, ...+3,5 Billions € in full Grants each Year, from EU Taxpayers' Money, (in addition to its "usual" 1 Billion €, i.e. a bulk of more than +4,5 Billions € in yearly Grants), while also being still Invited to "G-20" Summits ?...


- Most Italian Newspapers were proudly publishing Frontpage Headline News on Conte's endorsement of US President Trump's call for Russia to get back Home inside a "G-8", when, suddenly, it was announced that, in fact, at the last minute, Conte would have yielded under pressure...


But Don Trump's earlier relevant statement also, significantly, stressed that, in fact, - "We have a World to run !"


And he, notoriously, said that, by a Double Coincidence :


-  Both the Same Day that Deadly Islamist Terrorists of ISIL's Cowards who Target even innocent Civilian People, after a Recent Resurgence of a New Series of Bloody Attacks throughout Europe, in Afghanistan, etc., (since the Diversion provoked by Turkey's Military Invasion and Occupation of Syria's Kurdish Canton of Afrin on 2018), re-started anew to Invade and Occupy a City, near Syria's Borderline with Iraq;


- and at the Eve of the forthcoming, Crucial Singapore Summit with Northern Korea's Leader Kim Jong-un, scheduled for the 12th of June, from which depends if the World will manage to make an Historic breakthrough for Peace and stability, or fall back to an even more Dangerous Cold War era with the addition of unstable Nuclear Weapons' Tensions.


In such a Context, wouldn't a "traditional" fully-fledged "G-8", bringing Back Russia Together with the EU, USA, Canada and Japan, (if not, sooner or later, even a New ..."G-9", bringing In also China - as, inter alia, also f.ex. France had suggested as a Possible development, already as early as since the May 2011 "G-8" Summit in Deauville, during a Press Conference), be obviously Helpful in order to turn this mechanism into a Really "Global" one, and, eventually, give a Hand for a Succesful Preparation of that Crucial USA - N.Korea Summit, from which depends Global Peace and prevention of Nuclear Weapons' course threatening desastrous clashes ?


The Reply is naturaly "Yes", since this is, in practice, a Last Chance for Global Diplomacy among the Biggest Countries on Earth, (with the EU playing also a Useful Role in World Affairs), to try, all Together, to Help Save our Planet from UnPrecedented Risks of Nuclear Tensions and Threats.


Where is, these same Days, Russian President Vladimir Putin ? Visiting ...China, to meet with President Xi Jiping, inaugurate a High-Speed Train Link, etc. But, wouldn't it be Better, if these Leaders (notoriously Influent also vis a vis Northern Korea, etc), were, Now, Meeting and Exchanging Together with the EU, USA, Japan and Canada, etc., inter alia, also on How to Help, all Together, to Prepare a Succesful Negotiation and Deal with N.Korea's President Kim, on the occasion of the forthcoming, Crucial Singapore Meeting with USA's new President Don Trump, able to Safeguard World Peace ?


German Chancelor Angie Merkel, certainly, cannot forget that her initial Mentor, and Long-Time close Ally, the Historic former Chancelor Helmut Kohl, who playe a Key Role Both for the ReUnification of Europe after 1989, and EU Integration in the 1990ies, had notoriously Regretted and Criticized the Exclusion of Russia from the former "G-8" Summit format, (as f.ex. that of Heiligendam, back on 2007, that Merkel Chaired hershelf : Comp. "Eurofora" co-Founder's NewsReports from the spot, then Published mainly by "TCWeekly", etc).


Neither could, the French President Emmanuel Macron ignore his Historic predecessor, General De Gaulle's famous Plaidoyerie for "a Great Europe, extending from tha Atlantic Ocean, up to the Ural Mountains", and well beyond...


And the current "G-7" Host Country, Canada, also certainly canNot Neglect the Fact that, (in addition to Japan, etc), it's also, f.ex., ...Toronto City which is much Closer to Northern Korea's eventual Nuclear Rockets, than USA's Washington D.C. ...


So that, in fact, almost Everybody involved in those "Global" Summits, has, in one way or another, a Real Interest and Duty to become Helpful for World Peace, by contributing whatever is possible, appropriate and necessary for that Noble Aim, in real practice, hic and nunc.

Sarkozy and Merkel : June 2009 solution to May 2005 "NO" ?

 - Will French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel live up from June 2009 to their obvious Historic European mission to revitalize, and re-launch the "European Dream", after the series of 3 "NO" since May 2005 in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, by renewing, and changing the EU with fresh stimulus, big horizons, and values attractive for EU Citizens ?

Whatever views anyone might have, it's a Fact that, recently, EU's political spectrum didn't produce other more charismatic and popular EU leaders than Merkel and Sarkozy, starting from September 2005 and May 2007, respectively.

This trend was confirmed, in one way or another, both during the German EU presidency in 2007 (shared by Merkel with the SPD), and mainly during the French EU Presidency in 2008, (with Sarkozy "free" to move).


The positive 2009 EU Polls are a natural consequence :

- Both with 72% Sarkozy and Merkel are considered by EU Citizens to be "the most Influential" leaders in Europe, by far.

- They are the only EU political leaders to attract a Majority of "Positive" views by EU Citizens, (Merkel over 60%, Sarkozy over 50%, particularly in the continent).

- 60% of EU Citizens find the 2008 French EU Presidency "Good", (and the satisfaction grows up to 67,5% in continental Europe).

The Poll was made by "OpinionWay" in big EU countries as Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, (with the only exception of France), from 26 to 28 May 2009.

But the most important is that both Franco-German leaders seem willing to, at last, really start serious business on EU's indispensable renovation and Renaissance from 2009 : Year of crucial EU and German Elections.

Therefore, this time, the joint European move by Sarkozy and Merkel, which just published a common Franco-German Manifesto, aims to stimulate aspirations and action not only in their respective countries, but also in many other EU "partners", as they say.

Both on EU economy, social values and scientifico-technologic research, as well as on Turkey's controversial EU bid, obviously incompatible with a popular Political Europe, whose Citizens can find a collective Identity and popular Values, they have already started to magnetize various growing voices accross the European landscape :

"Today, more than ever, it' time for action", they stress from the outset.

Facing "an unprecedented Global financial and economic Crisis", "Europeans must get resolutely involved if they want for the World which is being built to meet their Values of Liberty, Solidarity and Justice".

"That's what we want" and "propose to our Partners" :

* "A strong Europe, able to protect us" :

- "We refuse a Bureaucratic EU, which mecanically applies burdensome rules and is afraid of change. We want a European Union which listens what Citizens have to say, which innovates, stimulates".

- "We want a strong and united EU in the World, while also respecting its Member States' Diversity", which "brings Courageous Replies to the Questions of our Times, ensuring our Prosperity :  

This implies to "favor Research and Innovation", "Economic Coordination", to "develop real Policies on Immigrationn, Energy, Defence, and modernise  common policies, particularly Agriculture".

*  "EU must bring immediate replies to the Global Crisis".

- "Lawless liberalism failed". "The Model we want is that of a Responsible Market Economy, which favors Enterpreneurs and Workers, above Speculators ;  Long-term Investment, over immediate profiits".

- "We appeal upon the EU to take, from June, the first decisions to ensure a real European Regulation of Financial Markets, based on coordination and cooperation". "On speculative funds, on fiscal heavens, CEO's and financial operators' earnings, EU must give the example".

- "We call to change the rules of accounts, which are important for our Economy's revival : The competent normative authorities must take action". "The issue of a sufficient Credit offer is of central importance for our Economy". "We don't accept that, during this Financial Crisis, the European Banks' capacity to lend money might be unjustly reduced by Capital's requirements and accountant's rules

* "During the German and French Presidencies, EU has resoçlutely prepared itself for the fight against Global Warming... EU is the 1st and only area in the World to have adopted a package of ambitious and legally binding rules to comply with International Aims"

- "We have now to convince our Friends and Partners, to get involved, in order to atteint, next December at Copenhagen, a Global Agreement worthy of whay is at stake. Our closer ally, the US, but also other big industrial countries, must commit themselves with the same force as the Europeans".

"Green Growth is a Chance ... and an opportunity to create jobs turned towards the Future. Europe must be a leader".

- But, at the same time, we must ensure that our companies remain competitive in the World. The ambitious European involvements on Climat must not lead into a position where EU industry might become a Victim of Unfair Competition. Climat protection and Competitvity must go together. If our International partners refuse to associate themselves to our efforts, we are determined to take measures to protect European Industry"

* "Europe must be more ambitious for its Industry" : "It must favor the emergence of strong European enterprises at a Global level".

- "As long as an International mechanism" to "monitor Public Aids at WTO level, and hinder 3rd Countries to give abusive subsidies to their enterprises, provoking unfair competition", is "not yet set up, we must consider Transitory European Solutions".

* "The current Public Debt is too heavy... We must head anew towards sound public finance, as soon as we'd have passed the crucial stage in this crisis".
-------------------------------------------------

* Last, but not least :  "Europe must play a top-level role in the World"

- "For that purpose,  it needs efficient Institutions. That's why we need Lisbon Treaty". "The 27 Member States decided, last December (2008) that the Treaty should enter into force before the end of this year (2009)". To obtain that, June EU Council must agree "on the Guarantees for Ireland".

- But, "to be able to act, EU needs Borders. An Enlargment without Limits is not possible", Sarkozy and Merkel stressed in an obvious reference to Turkey, etc.

- "In order to be strong, Europe must assume its Values and its Identity". "Human Rights .. are at the basis of our commitment for a Peaceful Development accross the World".

- "For that purpose, we shall strengthen our common Defence and Security policy".
----------------------

* "We are ready to contribute to activate the EU towards the realisation of these aims, with our EU Partners".

"In order to succeed", Europe  "needs the active involvment of all, starting by Citizens themselves. That's why the June 7 rendez-vous is important", and "we are calling all Europeans to vote".

"We are convinced that, if Europe wants, Europe can", they conclude.
-----------------------

Precisely : - What can better forge "Europe's Will" than a "European Consciousness" emerging from political, democratic struggles to face Global Challenges, and open big New Horizons, including by crystal-clear Public Debates, with active EU Citizens' involvement, before the most important EU Decisions affecting People's lives ?

Precisely what "EuroFora"s project warns since 1997-2007, and unprecedented Majority Abstentions, since 1999-2004, added to 3 "NO" to EU Referenda in 2005 and 2007, proved meanwhile..

Let's hope that the Time wasted by some scandalous anti-European and anti-Democratic obstacles of the Past, will stimulate faster, simplified but substantial and persistent, efficient action.-

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 ?
