(…) The first photos from Thursday's parade did not show any of North Korea's missile arsenal."

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/08/16/asia/chinese-russian-military-ties-intl-hnk-ml/index.html

China und Russland sollen in der vergangenen Woche mehrere gemeinsame Militärübungen abgehalten haben, bemerkt Brad Lendon. "Jets screamed across the sky and cannons boomed in northern China on Friday, as 10,000 People's Liberation Army and Russian troops gave a live-fire finale to a week of military exercises touted by both countries as a new high in bilateral military relations. The joint exercises were the first of their kind to use a joint command and control system, with Russian troops integrated into Chinese formations, according to a statement by China's Defense Ministry. The exercises also provided an opportunity for both sides to test new weaponry, and for Russian troops to use Chinese-made equipment, including armored assault vehicles, for the first time."

He continued, 'We've set up a means of communications now, on a regular basis, to be able to communicate to one another when each of us thinks something's happening in the other country. (…)'"

Nach Angaben der Organisation Islamischer Staat Provinz Westafrika (ISWAP) soll der Anführer von Boko Haram in Nigeria, Abubakar Shekau, tot sein, schreibt CNN. "Shekau died around May 18 after detonating an explosive device when he was pursued by ISWAP fighters following a battle, a person purporting to be ISWAP leader Abu Musab al-Barnawi said on the audio recording. (…) In the audio recording, the man identified as al-Barnawi said his fighters had sought out the warlord on the orders of the Islamic State leadership, and battled Boko Haram insurgents until Shekau fled. (…) ISWAP was previously part of Boko Haram before its split five years ago, pledging allegiance to Islamic State."

"Biden dramatically scales up the pressure on Netanyahu as decades-long relationship faces its most consequential moment"

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/05/19/politics/biden-netanyahu-relationship/index.html

US-Präsident Joe Biden habe den öffentlichen Druck auf Israels Ministerpräsident Benjamin Netanjahu erhöht, bemerken Natasha Bertrand, Kaitlan Collins, Jeremy Diamond und Kevin Liptak. "The White House said Biden told Netanyahu 'that he expected a significant de-escalation today on the path to a ceasefire' in the raging violence. The statement was a signal Biden is losing patience with Netanyahu, a leader he has known for four decades. The description of the call -- the fourth between President and Prime Minister over the past week -- reflected growing concern in the White House over the conflict. Previously, administration officials said their objective was to keep pressure on Israel limited to private conversations. But that appeared to shift after the White House revealed publicly that Biden had set a short deadline for tamping down the violence."

Satellitenbilder zeigten den kontinuierlichen Ausbau russischer Militärbasen in der Arktis, erläutert Nick Paton Walsh. "The satellite images show the slow and methodical strengthening of airfields and 'trefoil' bases -- with a shamrock-like design, daubed in the red, white and blue of the Russian flag -- at several locations along Russia's Arctic coast over the past five years. The bases are inside Russian territory and part of a legitimate defense of its borders and coastline. US officials have voiced concern, however, that the forces might be used to establish de facto control over areas of the Arctic that are further afield, and soon to be ice-free."

"(…) Germany is one of our closest allies and partners anywhere in the world. (…) And the fact that we have a difference over this pipeline is not going to change that. But we do have a difference. And President Biden's been very clear for a long time that he thinks the pipeline is a bad deal and a bad idea.

Kanada hat die US-amerikanische Organisation "Proud Boys" als "'ideologically motivated violent extremist group'" eingestuft, schreibt Paula Newton. Der Minister für öffentliche Sicherheit hat sich zu der Gruppierung in diesem Zusammenhang wie folgt geäußert: "'Their violent actions and rhetoric are fueled by white supremacy, anti-Semitism, racism, homophobia, Islamophobia and misogyny, and unfortunately, often in combination of all of the above'". In Kanada stoße die Einordnung der Gruppe jedoch auch auf Kritik: "Some Canadian rights' groups say listing the Proud Boys as a terrorist entity could broaden the definition of terrorism to the point of endangering protest and free speech rights."

"Al Qaeda's leader in Yemen under arrest, UN report reveals"

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/02/04/politics/al-qaeda-un-report/index.html

Paul Cruickshank berichtet: Den Vereinten Nationen zufolge sei es bereits im Oktober vergangenen Jahres während einer Militäroperation im Jemen gelungen, Khalid Batarfi, den Anführer der islamistischen Terrororganisation Al-Qaida auf der arabischen Halbinsel (AQAP), in Haft zu nehmen. "Batarfi became the leader of AQAP in early 2020 after his predecessor was killed in a US airstrike. Batarfi, who is in his early 40s, is from a Yemeni family but was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He (…) became a key ideologue for the group and, according to the UN, helped oversee its external operations before he became leader. The fact that Batarfi allowed himself to be captured alive during the raid rather than securing 'martyrdom' like Osama bin Laden will be a major embarrassment to al Qaeda."

Russlands Präsident Putin hat wie erwartet das Gesetz zur Verlängerung des New-Start-Abkommens mit den USA unterzeichnet. "Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on Friday ratifying the extension of New START, a key arms control treaty with the United States, a week before it was due to expire, the Kremlin said in a statement. The nuclear arms control agreement has been extended for five years until February 5, 2026, the Kremlin said. It is the last major pact of its kind between Russia and the US after the US pulled out of a separate nuclear arms control agreement with Russia, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), under the Trump administration in 2019. Putin and US President Joe Biden spoke on the phone on Tuesday expressing 'satisfaction' over the exchange of diplomatic notes between both countries on extending the treaty. The Russian Parliament voted to ratify the five-year extension on Wednesday."

Am vergangenen Freitag und Samstag haben fast 40 chinesische Kampfflugzeuge die "Medianlinie" überquert, die als inoffizielle Luftgrenze zwischen Taiwan und China gilt. "The uptick in Chinese military activity came as Keith Krach, the United States under secretary of state for economic, energy and environmental affairs, held meetings in the island's capital Taipei, ahead of a memorial service on Saturday for former Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui. The three-day visit to the island was denounced by Beijing, with a spokesman for the country's Foreign Ministry demanding the two sides 'immediately stop' official exchanges. China has reacted with increasing anger at warming ties between Taipei and Washington, and has ramped up military drills in the waters around the island which Beijing continues to view as an inseparable part of its territory despite the two sides have been governed separately for over seven decades."

In den Verhandlungen über eine Verlängerung des New-Start-Abkommens erwartet die US-Regierung von der russischen Seite weitere Zugeständnisse. "The Trump administration is threatening Russia that they could increase the cost of extending the one remaining nuclear weapons treaty between the two countries if Moscow does not commit to meeting US demands, including agreeing to stronger verification measures, before the American presidential election in November. (…) The Trump administration assesses that Russia is 'desperate' to uphold New START, and that they will be willing to make concessions in order to keep it in place. While the US has already made significant asks of Moscow, Billingslea said 'there is a lot more we could demand.' (…) Billingslea's declaration puts new pressure on Russia to come to the table before November, but Moscow is aware that the final outcome will be wholly dependent on who wins the election. Some experts are skeptical that Russia will buckle under US pressure."

"Trump's planned troop pullout from Germany has many military holes"

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/22/europe/europe-us-troop-movement-analysis-intl-hnk/index.html

Aus militärischer Sicht sei der geplante US-Truppenabzug aus Deutschland nur schwer zu rechtfertigen, schreibt Brad Lendon nach Gesprächen mit Militärexperten. "US and European military experts tell CNN the new troop reduction plan would provide few benefits on any potential future battlefield, and certainly not enough to justify its enormous cost, estimated to be in the billions of dollars. (…) Retired US Army Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, now a CNN military analyst, has years of military experience in Europe, beginning in 1975 and continuing intermittently until 2011. 'Germany is key, because it is central to both the 'old Europe' to the west and the newer states to the east,' Hertling said. 'The rail and airports are terrific in Germany, and given its centralized position and ease in dealing with the government of Germany, we could fly anywhere, as well as bring allies into the training center at Grafenwoehr,' he said. The Trump administration's German pullout sacrifices those efficiencies, Hertling said. (…) In any event, the plan would take years execute and Congress would have to find the billions of dollars needed to make it happen. And with a US election less than three months away, new thinking could emerge with a possible new occupant of the White House. The Germany pullout is far from a done deal."

"US to withdraw nearly 12,000 troops from Germany in move that will cost billions and take years"

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/29/politics/us-withdraw-troops-germany/index.html

Die Pläne des Weißen Hauses zum Abzug von fast 12.000 US-Truppen aus Deutschland sind im Kongress auf überparteiliche Kritik gestoßen, berichtet CNN. "Trump defended the decision Wednesday, saying the troop drawdown was taking place because Berlin was not spending the NATO target of 2% of its GDP on defense and because Germany was taking 'advantage' of the US. (…) Defense officials, however, said Wednesday that the decision on where to house the US troops leaving Germany was not influenced by whether the new host country was meeting the 2% target. In fact, Belgium and Italy, the two countries that will be receiving US troops from Germany, spend an even a smaller percentage on defense than Berlin does. (…) Key US command centers will also be repositioned as part of the move, Esper and top military leaders confirmed Wednesday. Gen. Tod Wolters, the commander of US European Command and NATO's Supreme Allied Commander Europe, said the US would be moving EUCOM headquarters from Germany to Belgium as part of an effort to co-locate the command with the NATO military command headquarters that is based there, and that Africa Command headquarters may be moving to a location to be determined as well."

"US allies once seemed cowed by China. Now they're responding with rare coordination"

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/14/world/china-world-coordinate-response-intl/index.html

Angela Dewan stellt fest, dass die USA und ihre Verbündeten zunehmend koordiniert auf die neue chinesische Außenpolitik reagierten. "This coordination has been most obvious in their strong reactions to China's imposition of a controversial National Security Law, which undermines Hong Kong's autonomy, a status that was supposed to be guaranteed until 2047 by a legal agreement with the United Kingdom. The language used and actions taken by Western powers to condemn this law has, in many cases, been the same. (…) Of course, allied countries have most likely been discussing their China strategies for years, but such concerted action is rarely so blatant. (…) Not all countries have been so bold. The EU may be coordinating a response to the National Security Law, but it has been slow to act. On China, Germany's Angela Merkel can't seem to find the right words -- she has been praised by some business leaders for her pragmatic approach to the country and for encouraging a growing trade relationship. But she has also drawn criticism in Germany for being too soft on China, and for being too close to Beijing. While she backed the EU's pledge for a united response Monday, she also said there was 'no reason not to remain in dialogue with China,' Reuters reported. Her quandary is understandable. Trade aside, there are other strong arguments against alienating China."

Das Pentagon hat einen Teil des Friedensabkommens mit den Taliban umgesetzt und sich aus fünf Stützpunkten in Afghanistan zurückgezogen. "The Pentagon announced Tuesday that the US has withdrawn from five bases in Afghanistan and reduced the size of its forces there as part of the agreement it entered into with the Taliban earlier this year. (…) The 'Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan' outlined a series of commitments from the US and the Taliban related to troop levels, counterterrorism and the intra-Afghan dialogue aimed at bringing about 'a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire.' The agreement laid out a 14-month timetable for the withdrawal of US military forces, its allies and coalition partners. CNN reported in May that data provided to the Pentagon's special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction showed that in the month following the signing of the peace deal, the Taliban increased their attacks on America's Afghan allies to levels higher than usual."

"Cracks in the Trump-Europe relationship are turning into a chasm"

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/04/europe/trump-europe-relationship-intl/index.html

Viele EU-Diplomaten führen die stetige Verschlechterung des Verhältnisses Europas zu den USA Luke McGee zufolge nicht nur auf die Person Donald Trump zurück. Dementsprechend seien auch die Hoffnungen auf eine rasche Erholung der transatlantischen Beziehungen im Fall eines Wahlsiegs Joe Bidens im November gedämpft. "(…) a potential Biden victory would provide no quick fix for the transatlantic partnership. 'The question is not really if you can get the relationship back to where it was, but if we can persuade the US to re-join the Western order,' says the EU diplomat. 'The US and EU geopolitical pivots on Asia, the Middle East and trade have respectively already begun. The difference at the moment is we think the West should be pivoting as one.' And even if Biden did go back to Obama-era policy on Europe, there is no guarantee that in four years' time he wouldn't be replaced by someone even more radical than Trump. 'The fundamental shifts going on in the US will probably remain and we have to adjust, making the best of the relationship we can. These shifts, they are structural and they are not just based on one person,' says the Brussels official."
