What Russia can teach US about unity

We look at cartoons in papers in two key US swing states: Florida and Ohio. The message is bleak with Americans feeling battered one way or another. Comment pieces, meanwhile, in the Chinese, Russian and Iranian papers call for more harmony, less division. And, an Algerian paper reports Algiers has a peace plan for neighbouring northern Mali. That's the focus for this look at the world papers Tuesday 6th November, 2012.

The daily cartoon for readers of the Miami Herald in Florida reflects a miserable state of affairs. A voter lies crushed under a huge bag of money as he or she reaches out a hand to vote.

The Cleveland News and Herald cartoon in Ohio shows a voter rejecting big government but then calling on it to save his life as a natural disaster sweeps his house away.

The editorial in the South China Morning Post says the goals for the next president have to include treating China as a friend and not a foe.

The Moscow Times says Americans are tearing each other apart and should introduce a National Unity holiday.

The Tehran Times says whoever is elected – Obama or Romney – they’ll be hostile to Iran. What is not clear, it says, is why the US wants to ‘continue punishing Iranians for a crime they have never committed’.

And, away from US politics, the Algerian paper El Khabar reports Algiers is working on a peace plan for Northern Mali.
