=>If women ruled the world there would be no wars, Just a bunch of angry countries not talking to each other.
Gérard I don't understand why it is "each other". I would have written "one another" scratch

Muriel,
I would say that:
- English speaking people are not as fond of grammar as we are : most of the time, they say that they don't care about grammar rules
(the French know far more English grammar than EMTs)
- here, the sentence is rather about couples of countries and not a general meeting with oodles of attendees so that the "non-discussion" is thought as between-two, hence "each other".

A family moves into a new neighborhood, one day the family overslept and their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus.
The father, though late for work himself, had to drive her. Since he did not know the way, he said that she would have to direct him to the school.
They rode several blocks before she told him to turn the first time, several more before she indicated another turn.
This went on for 20 minutes - but when they finally reached the school, it proved to be only a short distance from their home.
The father, much annoyed, asked his daughter why she'd led him around in such a circle.
The child explained, "That's the way the school bus goes, Daddy. It's the only way I know."

Tom is applying for a job as a signalman for the local railroad and is told to meet the inspector at the signal box.
The inspector decides to give Tom a pop quiz, asking: "What would you do if you realized that two trains were heading towards each other on the same track?"
Tom says: "I would switch one train to another track."
"What if the lever broke?" asks the inspector.
"Then I'd run down to the tracks and use the manual lever down there," answers Tom.
"What if that had been struck by lightning?" challenges the inspector.
"Then," Tom continued, "I'd run back up here and use the phone to call the next signal box."
"What if the phone was being used?"
"In that case," Tom argued, "I'd run to the street level and use the public phone near the station."
"What if that had been vandalized?"
"Oh well," said Tom, "in that case I would run into town and get my Uncle Leo."
This puzzled the inspector, so he asked, "Why would you do that?"
"Because he's never seen a train crash."

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air.
"Why?" asks the confused waitress, as the panda goes towards the exit.
The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.
"I'm a panda," he says at the door. "Look it up."
The waitress turns to the relevant entry and, sure enough, finds an explanation.
"Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."

An American tourist went into a restaurant in a Spanish provincial city for dinner, and asked to be served the specialty of the house.
When the dish arrived, he asked what kind of meat it contained. "Senor, these are the cojones," the waiter replied.
"The what, you say?" exclaimed the tourist.
"They are the testicles of the bull killed in the ring today," explained the waiter.
The tourist gulped, but tasted the dish anyway, and found it delicious. Returning the following evening, he asked for the same dish.
After he finished the meal, the tourist commented to the waiter: "Today's cojones are much saltier and smaller than the ones I had yesterday."
"True, senor," agreed the waiter. "You see, the bull, he does not always lose."
