伊朗的核子欺骗

国际原子能机构总干事莫罕默德·巴拉迪正在极力劝说该组织理事会做最后努力,以便在把伊朗核问题提交联合国安理会讨论并实施可能的制裁之前寻找出外交解决方案。把伊朗核问题提交安理会的决定最早可能在11月24日作出。届时,该组织的理事会将讨论现场核查员所发现的“新的信息”。

由于该组织核查员的努力,我们现在对伊朗的核群岛、至少是伊朗政府被迫开放的那些设施有了比较详尽的了解。我们知道,伊朗在没有告知国际原子能机构的情况下已经发现、开采和碾磨了天然铀。天然铀是浓缩项目的基础。我们知道,伊朗在没有根据要求事先通知该机构的情况下建造了一个铀转换设施来将铀“黄饼”转换成六氟化铀气体,而六氟化铀气体是铀浓缩的给料。

我们还知道,伊朗在纳坦兹建造了地下铀浓缩工厂,将这一工厂加固可以抵御导弹攻击,并且在地表建造了许多掩护建筑来使它躲避空中侦察。伊朗当局在商业卫星图象证实了存在这一设施后方才同意向国际原子能机构开放,而且,他们似乎在核查员抵达之前就已经把地下安装的所有设备清楚干净。这些设施一旦完全投入运行,就可以使得伊朗完全掌握整个核燃料循环。

    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.
