法德须在伊采取行动

下星期,布什总统、希拉克总统和施罗德总理将在诺曼底的悬崖峭壁上会面,纪念最终解放欧洲的 D 日登陆。 Pierre Lellouche Christoph Bertram 主张:他们还应当抓住机会,消除伊拉克问题给大西洋盟国带来的分歧之苦。

美国发起针对萨达姆·侯赛因的伊拉克战争时,法德两国恰如其分地警告说:这次入侵也许只会加剧中东地区的不稳定局势,扩大伊斯兰激进组织的恐怖威胁。但现在事实已经证明:美国及其盟友依靠自身的力量不能给伊拉克带来和平,随着局势的进一步恶化,法德两国政府再也不能袖手旁观,洋洋得意:"看,我早就告诉过你们。"法德政府必须立刻全面正式地参与到西方国家的联合行动中来。

当然,如果当前美国领导的联盟能旗开得胜,伊拉克能够成为中东稳定和现代化的支柱,这对各方来讲都是最好的结果,法德两国也不例外。但无论这个结果多么诱人,实现的可能如今已是微乎其微(即便这种可能性曾经存在的话)。国内稳定和经济复苏继续遥不可及,而内战的阴云却日益逼近。分裂的伊拉克内战纷起,不仅会给中东地区、也会给美国的国际信用和权威、甚至泛大西洋关系带来灾难性的后果。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
