沙漠中的无人机

特拉维夫—最近一架无人机从地中海进入以色列领空。它在以色列南部上空飞行了月半小时,然后被以色列空军击落在人口稀疏地区。这架无人机是谁派来的、从哪里飞来的,这些到目前都不得而知,但据信来自黎巴嫩,不是真主党根据伊朗指示发射,便是伊朗本身派来的。

果真如此的话,此事就不能视作这个冲突和暴力多发地区的又一次事件。相反,这是一次重大事故,表明关于伊朗核计划未来的冲突大幕已经拉开。

目前,决定伊朗核问题的是多方发展形势和力量。其一是以色列总理内塔尼亚胡的决定——上个月,在联合国大会上的演讲中,他宣布收回对伊朗核设施采取单方面军事行动的威胁。他说,以色列将给美国和国际社会通过其他方式让伊朗在2013年春或初夏中止核计划的机会。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
