Karzáího krize legitimity

Když se začtete do tisku z nedávné doby, zdálo by se, že aby afghánský vůdce Harmíd Karzáí dostal svou zemi zcela pod kontrolu, potřeboval by větší přítomnost mezinárodních mírových jednotek a rychlejší dodávku pomoci. Cukr mezinárodní pomoci a bič mírových jednotek prý mají Karzáího vládu zachránit před smrtí ještě v kolébce.

Spojené státy pod vlivem této logiky prosazují urychlení dodávek pomoci - úkol, se kterým samy mají největší zkušenosti, když Afghánistánu i za vlády Tálibánu poskytovaly devět desetin materiální a finanční podpory. Vyhlášení amerického prezidenta Bushe, že Spojené státy, Japonsko a Saúdská Arábie vytvořily fond na rekonstrukci dálkové silniční sítě ve výši 180 milionů dolarů, je zatím posledním opatřením, jak zrychlit tok rozvojové pomoci.

Mezinárodní bezpečnostní síly, jejichž příslušníky jsou především Turkové, jsou posilovány a jejich mandát je rozšiřován na území celé země. Když to náměstek amerického ministra obrany Paul Wolfowitz oznámil, znamenalo to odklon od dřívější pozice USA, podle níž měly být mírové operace svěřeny Kábulu, aby se nedostávaly do střetu s americkými operacemi proti al-Kájdě a skalním stoupencům Tálibánu.

    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.
