My good friends, while we in Ghana are engrossed in arguments concerning bread and butter, happenings in other parts of the world suggest something ominous that we must not gloss over. If not resolved amicably, this conflict has the potential to cause catastrophe worldwide.
Our own conflict with the Ivory Coast concerning the Cape Three Points oilfields is worth our trouble; but how many of us even consider it as worth our bother while we engage in this bread-and-butter politics?
At the global level, China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are locked in an ownership struggle over islands known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China. Claiming to be the only superpower in the world, the US has already inserted itself into this conflict.
Unfolding right in front of our eyes is the tension that will likely destabilize global politics and threaten world peace unless sound minds resolve the crisis.
