President Obama Talks With World Leaders Before G-20 Summit

Read the Leaders' Statement from the Pittsburgh Summit.

Today, the G-20 leaders assessed the progress made addressing the global economic crisis and agreed to maintain steps to support economic activity until recovery is assured. They further committed to additional steps to ensure strong, sustainable, and balanced growth, to build a stronger international financial system, to reduce development imbalances, and to modernize our architecture for international economic cooperation.

They designated the G-20 as the premier forum for our international economic cooperation and agreed to have a G-20 Summit in Canada in June 2010, and in Korea in November 2010, with the expectation of meeting annually thereafter. The G-20 leaders agreed to meet in France in 2011.

What would be more impressive is to make a resolution that all Leaders of All Countries live in the poorest capacities and places of the people they represent for a period of time...then the talk may result in something more productive...

The global dollar collapse is never connected to the two wars that we are fighting, is it?

Are wars and health care "free" for everyone or are we all paying for this through currency devaluation, over taxation, and economic collapse?

Secretary Gates claims it would be a disaster if we should exit Afghanistan, but isn't it a disaster if we don't?

Is it not a disaster that we have stayed far too long in that country and our occupation has produced an insurgency?

And what is the mission now? Do we murder everyone who doesn't want foreign troops in their country?

And why has Mr. Obama teleconferenced with his commanding general in Afghanistan only once in the past 70 days?

Is it not derelection of duty to fail to diligently prosecute a war or else quickly end it? Is Chicago's bid for the Olympic Games more important than the war in Afghanistan?
