卡扎菲的最后时光

班加西——

利比亚冲突终于进入了最后阶段。现在,利比亚首都有很大一部分已经落入了起义者之手,而反政府军本身也在从四面八方涌向首都。

效忠卡扎菲的军队的不堪一击在本周显露无疑,这是与现有体制的日益政治失序向对应的。卡扎菲的重要盟友纷纷倒戈,最新的例子是阿卜杜拉(Nasser al-Mabrouk Abdullah),这这位前内政部长携9名家小逃往开罗。而在阿卜杜拉叛逃前几天,利比亚石油部长阿布卡拉(Omran Abukraa)也逃离了利比亚。现在,卡扎菲的好几个儿子,包括内定继承人赛义夫·伊斯兰(Seif al-Islam)在内,已经被反政府军抓获。与2003年的萨达姆·侯赛因类似,卡扎菲似乎已经开始到处躲藏了。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession.
