重启导弹辩论

华盛顿特区-美国和俄罗斯就美国计划在欧洲部署弹道导弹防御系统的辩论再次升温。和波兰就部署防御拦截导弹问题一直存在的分歧已经导致美国官员暗示他们可能会考虑将立陶宛作为替代的部署地点。这一转变似乎是为了向波兰施加压力,使其在谈判中显示更大的灵活性,但是美国要在一个曾经是苏联一部分的国家建立军事基地的想法已经引起了克里姆林宫的不满。

在六月份,美国负责该问题的首席谈判代表约翰·鲁德飞到立陶宛向其政府通报了波兰和美国的谈判情况。美国寻求在波兰部署十枚拦截式导弹,在捷克共和国部署一个先进的导弹防御雷达站。本周,美国国务卿康多丽莎·赖斯访问布拉格,和捷克人签署了一个协议,但是,波兰和美国之间的会谈仍然处于僵局之中。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.
