在关塔纳摩湾监狱

关塔纳摩湾-这篇文章,是我在在没有遭到任何指控的情况下,却几乎把我关押了七年时间的关塔纳摩湾美国拘留中心,写下的。

我被关押在关塔那摩是我在一个错误的时间出现在一个错误的地点的结果。在两年多前,有人告诉我,美国已经批准释放我了。如果我不是来自乌兹别克斯坦——世界上人权记录最糟糕的国家之一,我可能会对这个消息感到高兴。然而事实是,我却高兴不起来,因为对我来说,回到自己的祖国并不安全。

在我结束了在乌兹别克斯坦军队里的强制服役之后,在1998年12月份,我就开始了走向关塔纳摩的旅途了。曾是前苏联加盟共和国的乌兹别克斯坦,是一个贫穷的没有多少工作机会的国家。我结束了在乌兹别克斯坦军队的服役之后,花了几个月的时间找工作,最后,我和我的兄弟一起,在邻国塔吉克斯坦做起了买卖苹果、蜂蜜和其他货物的生意。我住在塔吉克斯坦的一个乌兹别克人居住区,在此期间,遇到了我的妻子法第玛,她也是一个乌孜别克人 。不久之后,我们有了一个孩子,我的母亲也从乌兹别克斯坦来到了塔吉克斯坦,和我们一起生活。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
