Basta con il terrorismo boomerang

NEW YORK – Gli attacchi terroristici sui civili, sia l’aereo russo precipitato in Sinai che ha causato la morte di 224 passeggeri civili che l’orribile massacro di Parigi che ha colpito 129 innocenti o il tragico bombardamento ad Ankara che ha ucciso 102 attivisti per la pace, sono crimini contro l’umanità. Gli aggressori – in questo caso, lo Stato Islamico (Isis) – devono essere fermati. Sarà possibile solo se si comprendono appieno le radici in cui affonda questa spietata rete di jihadisti.

Per quanto sia doloroso ammetterlo, sull’Occidente, e soprattutto sugli Stati Uniti, grava una parte significativa di responsabilità per aver creato le condizioni in cui si è sviluppato l’Isis. Solo con un cambiamento della politica estera americana ed europea rispetto al Medio Oriente si può ridurre il rischio di ulteriori attacchi terroristici.

I recenti attacchi terroristici dovrebbero essere intesi come “blowback” (letteralmente significa “contraccolpo”), ossia come conseguenze indesiderate e spiacevoli delle ripetute azioni militari americane ed europee, segrete e non, adottate in Medio Oriente, Nord Africa, nel Corno d’Africa e nell’Asia centrale con l’obiettivo di sovvertire i governi e installare regimi conformi agli interessi occidentali. Tali operazioni non hanno solo destabilizzato le regioni interessate, causando grandi sofferenze, ma hanno anche esposto fortemente al rischio di terrorismo le popolazioni di Usa, Unione europea, Russia e Medio Oriente.

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
