伊朗核问题,吃草的人

马德里 — 在国际社会终结伊朗秘密开发核武器的努力失败后,今天的问题已不再是西方能否阻止伊朗军火核武器化,而是这个伊斯兰政权是否会先垮台。不幸的是,如果它不垮台,那么阻止伊朗的唯一方式就是战争 — 而战争将是一个非常坏的打算。

看待对伊朗实施的制裁能否够迫使其放弃核计划之时,巴基斯坦值得援引。1965年,巴基斯坦外交部长佐勒菲卡尔·阿里·布托高调宣布,如果印度这个不共戴天的敌人实现核武器化,巴基斯坦将“吃草,甚至挨饿”来开发自己的核炸弹。今天,巴基斯坦,一个濒临解体、近乎失败的国家,拥有比印度更多的核弹头。

伊朗这个政教合一的政权,不会轻易放弃其核野心,它认为以色列、“大撒旦”美国以及周边阿拉伯世界组成的邪恶联盟憎恶其霸权野心,它必须与它们顽强抗争以谋求生机。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
