Bonn - This is a new world, but there is neither a new world order - to use the phrase that was fashionable in the early 1990s, nor is there a new world disorder - to use the phrase that is more fashionable today. Instead there is a zone of safety in Europe, and outside it a zone of danger and a zone of chaos.
