Failed trade talk.

I have not followed very closely the now failed negociations over global trade talks and surely, the blame is in the end to put on both the EU - and France in particular - and the US.
However, I can't help seeing some truth in what EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson said today at a press conference in Brussels:
"The U.S. has been asking too much from others in exchange for doing too little themselves, now the U.S. seems to be saying to the rest of world: we are right, you are isolated.".
After all, this would not be the first time that this administration would tell the rest of the world "we are right". I tend to think that nothing will get done until Bush (and Chirac to a less extent) is in power and replaced by a leader who knows how to spell the word N-E-G-O-C-I-A-T-I-O-N-S!
