"With Trump shackled at home, Europeans fear more disruption abroad"

isruption-abroad-idUSKCN1NC1W9

Europäische Politiker und Sicherheitsexperten fürchten Noah Barkin und William James zufolge, dass sich US-Präsident Trump angesichts der absehbaren innenpolitischen Blockade durch das von Demokraten dominierte Repräsentantenhaus künftig stärker auf die Außenpolitik konzentrieren könnte. "Peter Trubowitz, director of the United States Center at the London School of Economics, said: 'I would look for him to double down on China, on Iran, on the Mexican border.' 'I think that the incentive structure now has changed for him and he will invest even more time on the foreign policy front as we move forward to 2020,' he added. (...) One area where Democrats could rein in Trump is on Saudi Arabia, whose killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month has fueled a backlash in Congress and threats to block arms sales."

"Five reasons why Trump’s Iran sanctions will fail"

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mousavian-iran-commentary/commentary-five-reasons-why-trumps-iran-sanc
tions-will-fail-idUSKCN1N42QY

Seyed Hossein Mousavian bezweifelt, dass die neuen US-Sanktionen gegen den Iran die von Präsident Trump erhofften Folgen haben werden. "There are at least five reasons why Trump’s strategy will fail. First, while the United States seeks to cut Iran’s oil exports to zero, it has become clear that this is impractical; there is no viable replacement for Iran’s 2.5 million barrels per day in oil exports. (...) Second, Trump’s trade war with China and the U.S. imposition of economic sanctions against Russia make Beijing and Moscow less likely to work with Washington on Iran. (...) Third, U.S. sanctions have laid the groundwork for a historic change in the global financial system. For many decades, the U.S. dollar has dominated the international financial markets. However, American withdrawal from the JCPOA has encouraged countries such as Russia, China, India and Turkey to use their local currencies to trade with Iran. If Europe succeeds in creating a financial system that is separate from the U.S. dollar, other states can use euros in trade with Iran, diminishing U.S. domination of global markets. Fourth, the remaining signatories to the JCPOA view the nuclear deal as a means to counter American unilateralism. (...) Fifth, powerful U.S. allies such as the EU and Japan continue to support the JCPOA. (...) Against this backdrop, the next round of U.S. sanctions against Iran is likely to increase Middle East tensions – and unlikely to bring Washington closer to achieving its goals on Iran."

"Plundering Africa"

https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/ocean-shock-sardinella/

Matthew Green beschreibt in dieser interaktiven Reportage, wie internationale Unternehmen die Küsten Afrikas "plündern", um im industriellen Maßstab Fischmehl zu produzieren. Der Klimawandel könnte diese neue Industrie demnach in wenigen Jahren zum Kollabieren bringen. Leidtragend wäre dabei auch die Nahrungsversorgung der Bevölkerung vor Ort. "From the shrimp ponds of China’s river deltas to the salmon cages of Norway’s fjords, the industry thrives by feeding fish to other fish. Its needs are so voracious, roughly 20 percent of the world’s wild-caught fish don’t even go near anyone’s plate but are instead ground up to make fishmeal. With relentless demand from China pushing fishmeal prices to record highs, companies have set their sights on West Africa as a new source of supply. From state-owned conglomerates to adventurous entrepreneurs, Chinese investors are racing to build new factories on the shores of Mauritania and its two neighbors to the south, Senegal and Gambia. But in the rush for sardinella, global business interests are snatching a staple of West Africa’s diet from the people who need it the most. And the blades of the grinding machines are posing a new threat to the species at a time when climate change already has sardinella swimming for its life. 'In four or five years, there won’t be any fish stocks left; the factories will close, and the foreigners will leave,' said Abdou Karim Sall, president of an association of small-scale fishermen in Senegal known by its French acronym, Papas. 'We’ll be left here without any fish.'"

Initially the king, who has handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to his son, commonly known as MbS, was unaware of the extent of the crisis, according to two of the sources with knowledge of the Saudi royal court. That was partly because MbS aides had been directing the king to glowing news about the country on Saudi TV channels, the sources said. That changed as the crisis grew."

Hyonhee Shin und David Brunnstrom erklären, warum eine offizielle Offenlegung des nordkoreanischen Atomprogramms von vielen Experten als zentrale Voraussetzung für einen Erfolg der Verhandlungen zwischen den USA und Nordkorea betrachtet wird. "Estimates on how many nuclear weapons North Korea vary. U.S. intelligence officials have put it at between 30 and 60 warheads, while South Korea’s intelligence agency said last month the North may have as many as 100 warheads. 38 North, which estimates North Korea has 50-60 nuclear warheads, said last year the operational Yongbyon reactor is capable of producing around 6 kg of plutonium every year, enough to make about two bombs. The suspected continuation of production makes it an urgent task to get Pyongyang to first freeze nuclear and missile production, as well as convince it to declare all related facilities for verification, experts say. 'How far the North would go to disclose its facilities would be key,' said Kim Dae-young, a military analyst at the Korea Research Institute for National Strategy in Seoul. 'Though it may be implausible to rid them completely of nuclear capabilities, it’s crucial to make it impossible for them to build the bombs again, including through regular inspections.'"

Das Gelingen der russisch-türkischen Einigung im Streit um das Vorgehen in der syrischen Idlib-Provinz wird vor allem vom Verhalten der dort vorherrschenden Dschihadisten abhängen, schreiben Tulay Karadeniz und Dominic Evans. "For the foreign jihadists, Idlib is the last haven in Syria after President Bashar al-Assad, backed by his allies Russia and Iran, reversed years of rebel gains and drove his opponents from remaining pockets in southern and western parts of the country. 'The main problem is the foreign fighters, they have nowhere to go,' said Sinan Ulgen, a former Turkish diplomat and analyst with Carnegie Europe. (...) An insurgent source in Idlib said there were different views emerging within Tahrir al-Sham over whether to cooperate. The group’s stance is crucial because once its decision-making Shura Council rules on the issue, Tahrir al-Sham wields enough power to impose its will on other jihadist fighters in Idlib, including foreigners, the source said. 'If there is an agreement between Tahrir al-Sham and Turkey, the matter will proceed easily,' the source said."

But U.S. officials had held out the possibility that Pakistan could win back that support if it changed its behavior. (...) The Pentagon’s decision showed that the United States, which has sought to change Pakistani behavior, is still increasing pressure on Pakistan’s security apparatus. It also underscored that Islamabad has yet to deliver the kind of change sought by Washington."

Peter Apps analysiert die möglichen politischen Konsequenzen der spektakulären Gerichtsverfahren gegen die früheren Trump-Vertrauten Paul Manafort und Michael Cohen. Es deute einiges darauf hin, dass die Ermittlungen von FBI-Sonderermittler Robert Mueller, die aufgrund der angeblichen Russland-Verbindungen Donald Trumps eröffnet wurden, ohne eindeutiges Ergebnis zu Ende gehen werden. Ob Trump sich irgendwann wegen anderer Vergehen verantworten müsse, bleibe dagegen offen. "Neither case may provide Mueller with direct proof that there was deliberate collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign, but they were clear signs of just how vulnerable those around the president are to financial charges around fraud and tax evasion in particular. Jail time for Manafort and Cohen now seems all but inevitable unless the president can find a way to pardon them, and that seems unlikely without considerable political risk. The Cohen plea in particular seems to increase the chances that charges of financial irregularities may yet be laid at the door of Trump himself. (...) To Trump, these may look like confrontations in which raw political realism outguns legal niceties. He knows removal through impeachment remains unlikely. Even if the Democrats dominate the House of Representatives in November and start the process, they are much less likely to be able to do so in the Senate – which is where any such charges would ultimately be decided."
