The Year Ahead 2016

2016年,打击伊斯兰极端分子

伦敦—2015年,伊斯兰恐怖分子活动频繁,形势严峻。每个月都有人因为“有害思想”而被杀。

1月份,尼日利亚巴加(Baga)有大约2,000人遭遇屠杀;也门萨那汽车炸弹夺走38人的生命;60人在巴基斯坦希卡布尔(Shikarpur)清真寺祈祷时被屠戮。6月份,300多人在尼日尔迪法大区(Diffa Region)、科威特城和突尼斯苏斯(Sousse)的袭击中被杀或受伤。11月份,近200人在萨拉热窝、贝鲁特和巴黎死于恐怖分子之手。而在12月,加利福尼亚州圣博纳尔迪诺(San Bernardino)又发生了大规模枪击案。

这些愈演愈烈的恐怖活动并不仅仅局限于伊拉克和叙利亚伊斯兰国(ISIS)所实施的残暴行为;这是一个全球性问题。因此,国际社会需要全面的战略打击伊斯兰恐怖主义——必须通过武力、外交和发展多管齐下实现更加稳定的世界。

    Red Scares, Then and Now

    • Russia’s interference in American and European elections constitutes a serious offense. 

    • But by treating Russian President Vladimir Putin and his cronies as an existential threat, Western leaders are playing directly into the Kremlin’s hands, and validating its false narrative about Russia’s place in the world.

    China’s New World Order?

    • Now that Chinese President Xi Jinping has solidified his position as China’s most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, he will be able to pursue his vision of a China-led international order.

    • But if China wants to enjoy the benefits of regional or even global hegemony in the twenty-first century, it will have to prove itself ready to accept the responsibilities of leadership.

    The Fall of the President’s Men

    • There can no longer be any doubt that Donald Trump is the ultimate target of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sweeping investigation of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 

    • But even if Mueller doesn’t catch Donald Trump in a crime, the president will leave much human and political wreckage behind.

    When China Leads

    For the last 40 years, China has implemented a national strategy that, despite its many twists and turns, has produced the economic and political juggernaut we see today. It would be reckless to assume, as many still do in the US, Europe, and elsewhere, that China’s transition to global preeminence will somehow simply implode, under the weight of the political and economic contradictions they believe to be inherent to the Chinese model.
