When Pack meets with Pack in the Jungle, and neither will go from the trail,
Lie down till the leaders have spoken—it may be fair words shall prevail.

From a poem in Chapter 2 of The Second Jungle Book entitled, The Law for the Wolves which begins,

"NOW this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die,"

and which is available in its entirety at http://www.bartleby.com/246/1131.html

Fair words, indeed. Not very likely when dominance is the name of the game. I did get a laugh out of the photo of Putin and Obama at the G8. They both looked like a couple of daycare kids who didn't get their cookie.

I would say they are at an impasse, and realize, they cannot reconcile their differences with a compromise.

... when all precious (fair) words were spent in vain before.
