ŮEGAR ┴ REYNIR
╔g tek eftir ■vÝ, a­ vinur minn Sighvatur Bj÷rgvinsson, birtir grein ß heimasÝ­u formanns Samfylkingarinnar honum til stu­nings Ý yfirstandandi formannskj÷ri. Ůar me­ ■ykir ■a­ ekki tilt÷kumßl, ■ˇtt sendiherra fjalli opinberlega um formannskj÷r Ý flokki sÝnum ľ ef ■eir sty­ja Íssur. Ůß hlřtur ■a­ a­ gilda jafnt um a­ra formannsframbjˇ­endur. JafnrŠ­isreglan blÝfur, ekki satt?

UM SAMKEPPNISHĂFNI ŮJËđA
A­gßt skal h÷f­ Ý nŠrveru fjßrmagns. Ůetta er kjarninn Ý kennisetningum frjßlshyggjunnar. Vi­ ver­um a­ hl˙ a­ fjßrmagninu. Annars gŠti ■a­ fyrtst og fl˙i­ ■anga­, sem betur er a­ ■vÝ b˙i­. Eftir sŠti ■ß hnipin ■jˇ­ Ý vanda. Hagv÷xtur mundi daprast, st÷rfum fŠkka, atvinnuleysi hÚldi innrei­ sÝna.

┌KRA═NA
UkraÝna er ß krossg÷tum. Ůrßtt fyrir yfirlřsingar stjˇrnvalda um pˇlitÝskan vilja ■eirra til a­ UkraÝna skipi sÚr Ý ra­ir evrˇpskra lř­rŠ­isrÝkja (me­ a­ild a­ EU og NATO) eru engar raunhŠfar lÝkur ß a­ ■a­ gerist Ý brß­. Ůrettßn ßr eru li­in frß ■vÝ a­ landi­ lřsti yfir sjßlfstŠ­i 1991. ┴rangurinn er Ý besta falli ˇjafn, Ý versta falli h÷rmulegur. Um margt svipar ■rˇuninni meira til R˙sslands en til Mi­- og AusturevrˇpurÝkja e­a til EystrasaltsrÝkjanna. UkraÝna nŠr ekki framhaldseinkunn ß neinn ■eirra mŠlikvar­a, sem Evrˇpusambandi­ og NATO setja a­ skilyr­i fyrir inng÷ngu. En ■eir eru: Fj÷lflokkalř­rŠ­i me­ frjßlsum kosningum og frjßlsum fj÷lmi­lum; rÚttarrÝki me­ sjßlfstŠ­um dˇmstˇlum, opi­ hagkerfi ■ar sem rÝkir marka­ssamkeppni skv. vi­urkenndum leikreglum. Ekkert af ■essu hefur nß­ a­ dafna Ý UkraÝnu, og ß sumum svi­um er um a­ rŠ­a afturf÷r frß umbˇtatÝmabilinu Ý upphafi 1991.

THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF EUROPEAN INTEGRATION
Lorenzo di┤Medici, whose family ran Florence in the 15th C. is credited with being the first person to coin the phrase ôbalance of powerö. It is a principle that became one of the key foundations of the European disorder for five hundred years. The logic of the balance of power between competing nationstates led to a state of perpetual war in Europe and beyond. This has been the curse of European history.

ICELAND┤S ROLE
Sir:
In his article and accompanying interview 08.04.05 on the Council on Foreign Relations web page Mr. Uffe Elleman-Jensen, the former Danish Foreign Minister maintains:
(1) That he ômoved forward aloneö in restoring diplomatic relations with the Baltic states and by his action he made Denmark ôthe first countryö to do so.
(2) That Iceland was somehow in a different position and therefore does not count in ôthe storyö.
(3) That the Bush 1 administration was a stalwart supporter of the restoration of the Baltic countries when their fate was decided 1988-91.
I regret to say that on all counts Mr. Jensen is wrong.
