为什么美国不该再选乔治·布什当总统

我从来没热衷参与过党派政治,但现在已经是非正常时期了。乔治·W·布什总统正在把美国和世界的安全拖入险境,同时也损害了美国信奉的价值观。迫于布什班子的种种丑行,我不得不站出来反对他。

2000年布什竞选时曾承诺实行"温和"的外交政策。如果再次当选,布什的霸权信条-和侵略伊拉克的行径-将会得到承认,而全世界都不得不为此付出惨重代价。通过在全民投票中批判布什的政策,美国将有机会重新赢得世界的尊敬与支持。

2001年9月11日的恐怖袭击迫使我们做出强烈的反应。但这也导致了关键民主程序的缺失-没有人就此进行过全面、公正的探讨。所有批评意见都被布什贴上了不爱国的标签并加以压制。9/11以后长达18个月,他成功地压制了所有的不同意见,他就是这样把美国引入了歧途。

    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.
