塔利班的重生

新德里——高调恐怖袭击的间歇期似乎已经结束。 但不久前对美国在阿富汗重要军事设施喀布尔郊外巴格拉姆空军基地的自杀性袭击以及纽约时代广场未能得逞的汽车炸弹爆炸事件是否真的意味着“打击恐怖主义的战争”(奥巴马政府一直有意回避这一词汇)已经重燃战火?

虽然美国和西方国家曾经感到圣战恐怖主义的气焰有所下降,但这样的虚假安全感在阿富汗、巴基斯坦和印度却从未存在过。 事实上,该地区所面临的问题不是打击恐怖主义的战争能否歇口气,而是在许多方面已经成为伊斯兰恐怖主义联系纽带的巴基斯坦在打击恐怖主义方面是否正全力以赴。

  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.
