应对基地组织

普林斯顿——

尽管沙特阿拉伯是基地组织的领袖,信仰和意识形态的发源地,但沙特对基地组织的政策是胡萝卜加上更加无情的大棒,于是,基地组织遭到了无情的镇压。上个月,在吉达市,基地组织发动了一场针对沙特内务安全副部长默罕默德·宾·纳伊夫王子未遂谋杀,更加显示出沙特的强硬态度和基地组织试图彰显实力的一次失败企图。

此次谋杀的人肉炸弹名叫阿卜杜拉·安萨里,他是沙特公民,同时也是基地组织的成员。他宣称从也门返回后将放弃恐怖主义,并接受默罕默德王子的领导。在那天的清晨,王子让他从也门与沙特的边境进入他的私人飞机,没有让手下搜查他的身上。然而,此时的安萨里将一颗一磅重的炸弹已经藏在了身上,他在接近王子时引爆了炸弹,但炸弹的威力不够,只是他自己在爆炸中身亡。

    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.
