中国掠夺印度领土

新德里—与日本、越南和菲律宾在东海和南海岛屿整个不休并没有让越来越专断的中国停下脚步,它又新开辟了一条前沿,出兵越界侵入争议中的喜马拉雅边境禁区。4月15日夜,解放军的一个排暗中进入中印巴三方交界附近,深入在印控区19公里扎营,并向印度政府主张具有战略关键意义的750平方公里高海拔高原地区。

因国内政治危机焦头烂额的印度大吃一惊,匆忙寻求积极响应中国的领土掠夺——这是中国开始对邻国采取更强硬政策以来最大、最具战略性的不动产掠夺。中国将继续侵占,建设雪线高原的永久军营,还是准备在获得印度羞辱性的军事妥协后撤离仍不明朗,而且从某种程度上说,这个问题并没有什么意义。

事实是,中国的“和平崛起”已经让位于日渐对四邻的日渐专横,它扩大了自己的“核心利益”——即不容妥协的利益——和领土主张,同时表现出准备不惜冒险实现这一目标。比如,不但升级了其对日本对尖阁列岛(钓鱼岛)几十年控制权的挑战,还从去年控制黄岩岛开始于菲律宾针锋相对。

    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.

    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.
