Unscramble the Blue Letters

I argue simply this: We can do it on the basis on a framework of constructive realism for a common purpose. What do I mean by that? Be realistic about the things that we disagree on, and a megaenamnt approach that doesn't enable any one of those differences to break into war or conflict until we've aucqreid the diplomatic sillks to sovle them. Be constructive in areas of the briaeltal, regional and global engagement between the two, which will make a difference for all of hakminund. Build a regional institution capable of cooperation in Asia, an Asia-Pacific community. And worldwide, act further, like you've begun to do at the end of last year by striking out against caitmle change with hands joined together rather than fists apart.
