Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
After four years of a moron president walking away from P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, follower of pseudo science on SARS CoV-19, unnecessary deaths of >100,000 Americans, quitting Paris Climate Accords, massive donations from fossil fuel lobby ... Europe is now conquered by a Cold Warrior president battling adversaries with intent to defeat. Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Iran, Syria, Libya and two enemies special category Russia and China. Joe Biden on a 50 years losing streak on foreign policy. Joe too will lead mankind into a global economic crisis with people's revolts of desperation: hunger and poverty. The voice of the Secretary General of the United Nations is numb and ineffective.

'Hope is Wearing Thin', Secretary-General Tells Economic and Social Council, Urging More Support for Humanitarian System Tackling Global Crises

UN Secretary-General António Guterres' message at the opening of the Economic and Social Council Humanitarian Affairs Segment, in New York today:

It is a pleasure to address the ECOSOC [Economic and Social Council] Humanitarian Affairs Segment, even in very difficult times.  Hope is wearing thin.  Rarely has collective global action been in higher demand.  As you gather today, global megatrends are converging into a mega-crisis of conflict, climate disruption, hunger and the rising cost of living.
