怎样结束起义

东京—20世纪60年代,当莫洛伊斯兰解放阵线(Moro Islamic Liberation Front,简称MILF)游击队在菲律宾揭竿而起时,费迪南德·马科斯(Ferdinand Marcos)还没有成为总统,更不用说变成独裁者了。尽管在过去五十年中,菲律宾发生了许多政治变化,但追求邦萨摩洛(Bangsamoro)国家独立的MILF运动一直在继续进行——其领土主张包括苏禄、棉兰老、巴拉望和沙巴诸岛——直到总统阿基诺三世决心改变这一情况。

MILF并没有因为1986年继反对派领袖小贝尼诺·阿基诺(Benigno Aquino, Jr.)遇刺而起的群众推翻马科斯20年独裁统治事件而有所退缩。现已深入民心的民主制度的建立也没有促使MILF领导人反思其方针。MILF仍然保持斩首、刺杀、绑架和无差别屠杀的野蛮政策。

接着,在去年1月,阿基诺三世成功地实现了终结棉兰老岛痛苦局面的里程碑式的协议。这是自第二次世界大战以来亚洲所取得的最令人瞩目的和平协议,其价值绝不亚于前芬兰总统、2008年诺贝尔和平奖获得者马提·阿赫蒂萨里(Marti Ahtissari)在2005年印尼亚齐省和平中的调停作用。事实上,考虑到阿基诺三世在与MILF达成和平协议中所需要面临的安全和政治风险,他更有资格获得诺贝尔奖。

    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.

    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.
