The Coming Chaos To Birth New World Order

Headlines point to the New World Order in the shadow of the September 11th anniversary...

Power Shifts and Security, keynote speaker Dr. Henry Kissinger, The 8th IISS Global Strategic Review:

...Niall Ferguson has coined the term of an ‘apolar world’, in which the United States gradually recedes from its hegemonic role and is replaced by…nobody. That cannot happen, because it is the nature of the political world that it abhors a vacuum. That is the international system.

Chaos may occur, but when it does it will sooner or later settle down to some new order. It is the task of statesmanship, and of groups like this, to try to generate the possibility, so that what must happen ultimately will happen soon, and save humanity from untold suffering. -

U.N. Looks to Take Charge of World's Agenda

After a year of humiliating setbacks, United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and about 60 of his top lieutenants — the top brass of the entire U.N. system — spent their Labor Day weekend at a remote Austrian Alpine retreat, discussing ways to put their sprawling organization in charge of the world’s agenda.

Details concerning the two-day, closed-door sessions in the comfortable village of Alpbach were closely guarded. Nonetheless, position papers for the meeting obtained by Fox News indicate that the topics included...

IMF Prepares To Lead New Economic Order As US Dollar Declines

Ever since its inception 66 years ago, the International Monetary Fund has fancied itself at the center of the global economy.

But only now does the prospect of a multilateral monetary authority providing stability to the international financial system seem even remotely possible. That's because for the first time in decades there are legitimate uncertainties surrounding the one institution that does play that role: the U.S. dollar.

In that context, a couple of recent IMF-related announcements are more important than they normally would be.

On Monday, the IMF said it would dramatically increase lending to a wide array of developing countries through a new "precautionary credit line" under which they would pre-qualify for loans to be drawn upon in a crisis.

Then on Tuesday, South Korea, which will host the Group of 20 nations summit in November, said it would no longer keep its proposal for a global system of currency swaps on the agenda of that meeting. Instead, it would seek a new role for the IMF for containing global financial turmoil--in effect, endorsing the IMF's alternative plan for a "global stabilization mechanism," which would be available to groups of countries.

Clinton Calls For US To Take Global Leadership

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton declared Wednesday that "a new American moment" has arrived in international relations, "a moment when our global leadership is essential, even if we must often lead in new ways."

In a lengthy speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in which she defended the Obama administration's foreign policy approach, Clinton said that "this is a moment that must be seized - through hard work and bold decisions - to lay the foundations for lasting American leadership for decades to come."

..."This is no argument for America to go it alone - far from it," Clinton said. "The world looks to us because America has the reach and resolve to mobilize the shared effort needed to solve problems on a global scale - in defense of our own interests, but also as a force for progress. In this we have no rival."

She added: "For the United States, global leadership is both a responsibility and an unparalleled opportunity."
