中东的五大危机

在埃及与巴基斯坦之间的地区融合着五个互不相干、爆炸性的元素,即伊拉克内乱、阿富汗的叛乱、伊朗的核野心、旷日持久的以阿冲突以及在极端主义团体与腐败、压迫的政府之间冲突的危险。需要采取一个全面性的政策来解决这些问题,然而威胁的种类是如此多样化并且复杂,各种措施必须要多管齐下才会有效果。

在伊拉克,美国关于建立一个由什叶派、逊尼派和库尔德人组成的半联邦政府的策略因为什叶派的支配地位、逊尼派和什叶派的恐怖活动、库尔德人的分裂主义以及伊朗的干涉而极有可能走向失败。生命的代价已经到达难以容忍地高的程度。美国无法承受目前的伤亡率(不管是美国的还是伊拉克的)以及费用。为了给长期稳定创造条件,也许需要一种与结束前南战争的戴顿和平协议相类似的通过谈判对国家进行分割。

把伊拉克的人民分割开是令人痛苦的。联合国难民事务高级专员公署和美国领导的联合部队应当帮助那些想要搬到国家的其他地区去的人们。也许有人会反对说实施内部的重新安置无异于在迎合“种族或宗教清洗”。但是伊拉克长期战争的代价无疑会不管如何都会导致它的分割,是比这更糟糕的结果。多元化的原则是有价值的,但是制止流血冲突是应该被优先考虑的问题。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  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. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    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. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
