也门还有救吗?

萨那—也门对冲突绝不陌生。也门暴露在伊朗和沙特阿拉伯的地区代理战争中,饱受根深蒂固的基地组织折磨,也因为部落纠纷和独立运动而分裂。阿拉伯世界中的所有问题,你都可以在也门找到。

在过去,也门表现出引人注目的恢复力。为了确保最近什叶派胡塞(Shia Houthi)反抗运动颠覆政府不会给也门造成其到目前为止成功避免了的致命一击,国际社会绝不能再也门最需要的时候放弃这个国家。

胡塞运动的起源可以追溯到1991年。这一年,胡塞运动成立,初衷是保护什叶派伊斯兰教的温和形势斋德主义(Zaydism)不受逊尼派伊斯兰教迫害。2001年9月11日纽约和华盛顿恐怖袭击发生后,该组织的战斗又增加了地缘政治维度,其战士拒绝也门与美国采取联合行动和加强双边情报合作的决定。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
