"A magnet for exploitation: Haiti over the centuries."

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/07/world/americas/haiti-poverty-history.html

Seit der Gründung Haitis sei das Land Spielball der Interessen anderer Staaten, analysieren Selam Gebrekidan und Constant Méheut. "For decades, European powers, and later the United States, refused to recognize it as an independent republic. (…) Haiti, with a population of 11 million, is considered the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere."

"Taliban Try to Polish Their Image as They Push for Victory"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/06/world/asia/afghanistan-taliban-women.html

Die Taliban versuchten, sich als effektive Gouverneure zu profilieren und ihren Ruf zu verbessern, beobachten Thomas Gibbons-Neff und Najim Rahim. "But the signs that the Taliban have not reformed are increasingly clear: An assassination campaign against government workers, civil society leaders and security forces continues on pace. There is little effort to proceed with peace talks with the Afghan government, despite commitments made to the United States. And in areas the insurgents have seized, women are being forced out of public-facing roles, and girls out of schools, undoing many of the gains from the past 20 years of Western presence."

"Ethiopia Leader, Stung by World Condemnation, Denies Troops Were Defeated"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/30/world/africa/tigray-ethiopia-abiy-ahmed.html

Äthiopiens Premierminister Abiy Ahmed bestreite, dass seine Truppen in Tigray besiegt worden seien, schreibt Simon Marks. "In his first comments since Ethiopia suddenly ended its military operation in the northern region of Tigray, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said that his army units had been ambushed and 'massacred' while passing through villages, but that any claims that his military had been defeated were 'a lie.' (…) Tigrayan leaders, who say they have reconstituted themselves as the government of Tigray, said in a statement on Monday: 'The brave Tigray army, in a manner that's difficult to explain, has destroyed enemy forces and is following the fleeing remnants and crushing them.'"

"Donald Rumsfeld, Defense Secretary During Iraq War, Is Dead at 88"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/30/us/politics/donald-rumsfeld-dead.html

Robert McFadden skizziert den Lebensweg und die politische Laufbahn des ehemaligen US-Verteidigungsministers Donald Rumsfeld, der am Dienstag im Alter von 88 Jahren verstarb: "Donald H. Rumsfeld, the secretary of defense for Presidents Gerald R. Ford and George W. Bush, who presided over America's Cold War strategies in the 1970s and, in the new world of terrorism decades later, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, died on Tuesday at his home in Taos, N.M. (…) His complex character - he was a creative and dedicated reformer to admirers, a vain and egotistical bully to detractors - was the subject of endless debate and analysis in public forums, newspaper and magazine articles, television documentaries and books."

"Russian Mercenaries Are Driving War Crimes in Africa, U.N. Says"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/27/world/asia/russia-mercenaries-central-african-republic.html

UN-Ermittlern zufolge hätten russische Söldnertruppen während einer Militäroperation Anfang des Jahres in der Zentralafrikanischen Republik Zivilisten getötet, Häuser geplündert und Gläubige in einer Moschee erschossen, schreibt Declan Walsh. "The accusations of atrocities are documented in a report for the U.N. Security Council that was obtained by The New York Times and that details abuses tied to the contentious Russian involvement in the Central African Republic, an impoverished yet mineral-rich country that has been locked in civil war for nearly a decade. Russian mercenaries, deployed in the guise of unarmed military advisers, led government forces into battle during an offensive to oust rebels from several towns in January and February, the report found. And as well as committing abuses, the Russian operatives established themselves in the major mining centers of a country with large reserves of diamonds."

"In France's Military, Muslims Find a Tolerance That Is Elusive Elsewhere"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/26/world/europe/in-frances-military-muslims-find-a-tolerance-that-is-elus
ive-elsewhere.html

Constant Méheut und Norimitsu Onishi beleuchten die Situation muslimischer Soldatinnen und Soldaten in Frankreichs Militär: "For the past two decades, as France's Muslim population has sought a greater role in the nation, officials have often tried to restrict Islam's public presence under an increasingly strict interpretation of French secularism, known as laïcité. (…) But one major institution has gone in the opposite direction: the military. The armed forces have carved out a place for Islam equal to France's more established faiths - by hewing to a more liberal interpretation of laïcité. Imams became chaplains in 2005. Mosques have been built on bases in France and across the world, including in Deir Kifa, where some 700 French soldiers help a United Nations force keep peace in southern Lebanon. Halal rations are on offer. Muslim holidays are recognized. Work schedules are adjusted to allow Muslim soldiers to attend Friday Prayer."

"On the Front Line: A Night With Afghan Commandos"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/25/world/asia/afghan-commandos-helmand.html

Jim Huylebroek schildert das Vorgehen einer afghanischen Eliteeinheit während einer nächtlichen Operation gegen die Taliban: "As the city lights faded and the Soviet-era military helicopter banked over the fields and canals of southern Afghanistan one night in May, the Afghan commandos on board made their final checks, looking at maps and adjusting their weapons before turning on their night-vision goggles. (…) The efficiency and professionalism of the operation, carried out by one of the commando corps' smaller and more elite tiers, was a far cry from most units within the Afghan security forces, who often try to hold the line with dwindling supplies, unsteady pay checks and constant attacks."

"Saudi Operatives Who Killed Khashoggi Received Paramilitary Training in U.S."

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/22/us/politics/khashoggi-saudi-kill-team-us-training.html

Vier saudische Agenten, die an der Tötung des Journalisten Jamal Khashoggi beteiligt gewesen sein sollen, hätten zuvor eine paramilitärische Ausbildung in den USA erhalten, schreiben Julian Barnes, Michael LaForgia und Mark Mazzetti. "The training was provided by the Arkansas-based security company Tier 1 Group, which is owned by the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management. The company says the training - including 'safe marksmanship' and 'countering an attack' - was defensive in nature and devised to better protect Saudi leaders. (…) There is no evidence that the American officials who approved the training or Tier 1 Group executives knew that the Saudis were involved in the crackdown inside Saudi Arabia. But the fact that the government approved high-level military training for operatives who went on to carry out the grisly killing of a journalist shows how intensely intertwined the United States has become with an autocratic nation even as its agents committed horrific human rights abuses."

"U.S. Blocks Websites Linked to Iran at Key Point in Nuclear Talks"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/22/us/politics/us-iran-websites-nuclear-talks.html

Die US-Regierung habe am Dienstag den Zugang zu mehreren Webseiten blockiert, die mit Iran in Verbindung stünden, erläutern Katie Benner, Farnaz Fassihi und Lara Jakes. "One U.S. national security official said the websites, about three dozen in all, were linked to disinformation efforts by Iran and other groups backed by Tehran. A few involved terrorist organizations that targeted coalition forces stationed overseas, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the operation before it was announced. The spokesman for Iran's mission to the United Nations, Shahrokh Nazemi, said the United States was trying to muzzle free speech."

"Departure of U.S. Contractors Poses Myriad Problems for Afghan Military"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/19/world/asia/Afghanistan-withdrawal-contractors.html

In Folge des Abzugs der US-amerikanischen Truppen aus Afghanistan würden auch zahlreiche internationale, private Sicherheitsdienstleister das Land verlassen, stellen Helene Cooper, Thomas Gibbons-Neff und Eric Schmitt fest. Dies stelle das afghanische Militär vor Herausforderungen: "It is heavily reliant on American and other foreign contractors for repairs, maintenance, fueling, training and other jobs necessary to keep their forces operating, and those contractors are now departing along with the American military, leaving a void that leaders on both sides say could be crippling to Afghan forces as they face the Taliban alone. The problem is especially acute for the Afghan Air Force. Not only does the small but professional fleet provide air support to beleaguered troops, but it is also essential to supplying and evacuating hundreds of outposts and bases across the country - the quickly thinning line that separates government and Taliban-controlled territory."

"Elite Afghan Forces Suffer Horrific Casualties as Taliban Advance"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/17/world/asia/afghanistan-military-casualties.html

Mindestens 24 afghanische Spezialeinsatzkräfte und fünf Polizisten seien im nordafghanischen Bezirk Dawlat Abad von den Taliban getötet worden, schreiben Thomas Gibbons-Neff und Najim Rahim. "It was a profound blow to the elite force at a time when such troops often serve as the only units keeping the insurgents from capturing more territory. (…) 'When the Taliban came to Dawlat Abad, they surrounded the commandos and killed them in less than an hour,' said Mohammad Hakim, a militia commander who escaped the district. What happened in Faryab is playing out in districts across the country, at an alarming rate. Tolo News, a national media outlet in the country, reported fighting in 80 of Afghanistan's roughly 400 districts in the country Thursday."

"Pentagon Weighs Proposal to Send Dozens of Troops Back to Somalia"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/15/us/politics/pentagon-troops-somalia.html

Das Pentagon erwäge, US-Truppen zurück nach Somalia zu entsenden, schreiben Charlie Savage und Eric Schmitt. "The Pentagon is developing a proposal to send dozens of Special Forces trainers back to Somalia to help local forces combat Al Shabab, the terrorist group affiliated with Al Qaeda - a step that would partly reverse President Donald J. Trump's abrupt pullout of nearly all 700 American troops from the country in January. (…) The proposal has not yet been presented to Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III, officials said, and it is not clear whether Mr. Biden would approve such a plan. Among other challenges, the idea is also running into an unresolved policy debate over developing new rules for counterterrorism 'direct action' like drone strikes away from active war zones."

"Once, Superpower Summits Were About Nukes. Now, It's Cyberweapons."

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/15/world/europe/biden-putin-cyberweapons.html

Erstmals hätten nicht Atom-, sondern Cyberwaffen oberste Priorität bei einem Treffen eines amerikanischen und russischen Präsidenten, erklärt David Sanger. "The shift has been brewing for a decade, as Russia and the United States, the two most skilled adversaries in the cyberarena, have each turned to a growing arsenal of techniques in what has become a daily, low-level conflict. (…) Mr. Biden has made clear that he intends to give Mr. Putin a choice: Cease the attacks, and crack down on the cybercriminals operating from Russian territory, or face a rising set of economic costs and what Mr. Biden calls a set of moves by the United States to 'respond in kind.' But on Sunday, while still at the Group of 7 summit in Cornwall, he acknowledged that Mr. Putin may well ignore him."

"The new government is expected to hold the line on big security issues."

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/13/world/middleeast/israel-hezbollah-gaza-west-bank.html

Sind nach dem Ende der Präsidentschaft Benjamin Netanjahus Veränderungen in Israels Außen- und Verteidigungspolitik zu erwarten? Ronen Bergman geht dieser Frage nach: "(…) [T]he new government, composed of parties across the wide political spectrum, is not expected to initiate significant changes on controversial issues - like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the questions of establishing an independent Palestinian state or continuing to establish settlements in the occupied West Bank. Israel is also unlikely to significantly change its policy of waging a so-called 'war between the wars,' on or close to its borders. This includes hundreds of Israeli attacks, almost all from the air, with the aim of preventing the continuation of the military buildup in Syria by Iran and Hezbollah, and the development of advanced precision weaponry for the Lebanese Shiite militia. The policy was shaped by the new government's defense minister, Benny Gantz, when he led Israel's military, together with others."

Helene Cooper, Thomas Gibbons-Neff und Eric Schmitt berichten: Das US-Verteidigungsministerium prüfe, ob es mit Kampfflugzeugen oder Drohnen in Afghanistan eingreifen sollte, wenn künftig die Gefahr bestünde, dass Kabul oder eine andere afghanische Großstadt an die Taliban fallen. "Mr. Biden and his top national security aides had previously suggested that once U.S. troops left Afghanistan, air support would end as well, with the exception of strikes aimed at terrorist groups that could harm American interests. But military officials are actively discussing how they might respond if the rapid withdrawal produces consequences with substantial national security implications. No decisions have been made yet, officials said. (…) Any additional airstrikes would require the president's approval."

Zehn Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter der amerikanisch-britischen Wohltätigkeitsorganisation "HALO Trust", die seit Jahrzehnten Landminen in Afghanistan räume, seien in der afghanischen Provinz Baghlan getötet worden, schreiben Mike Ives und Najim Rahim. "Tariq Arian, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry, blamed the Taliban for the attack, which occurred late Tuesday at a demining camp in the northeastern province of Baghlan and targeted employees of the HALO Trust. (…) Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, denied any involvement and said that the area where the 'horrifying' attack had taken place was not under the militant group's control. 'We condemn attacks on the defenseless & view it as brutality,' he said on Twitter."

"C.I.A. Scrambles for New Approach in Afghanistan"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/06/us/politics/cia-afghanistan-pakistan.html

Julian Barnes und Mark Mazzetti skizzieren, wie der schnelle Abzug des US-Militärs aus Afghanistan Druck auf den amerikanischen Geheimdienst CIA aufbaue, neue Wege für die Informationsbeschaffung und Durchführung von Antiterrormaßnahmen im Land zu finden: "United States officials are in last-minute efforts to secure bases close to Afghanistan for future operations. But the complexity of the continuing conflict has led to thorny diplomatic negotiations as the military pushes to have all forces out by early to mid-July, well before President Biden's deadline of Sept. 11, according to American officials and regional experts. (…) Douglas London, a former head of C.I.A. counterterrorism operations for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said that the agency was likely to rely on a 'stay behind' network of informants in Afghanistan who would collect intelligence on the Taliban, Al Qaeda, the stability of the central government and other topics."

"Pentagon Accelerates Withdrawal From Afghanistan"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/25/us/politics/us-afghanistan-withdrawal.html

Die USA und ihre NATO-Verbündeten beabsichtigten, bereits im Juli aus Afghanistan abgezogen zu sein - lange vor der von Präsident Joe Biden ursprünglich gesetzten Frist für den vollständigen Abzug am 11. September, erläutern Helene Cooper, Thomas Gibbons-Neff und Eric Schmitt. "But the race to the exits, which has picked up steam as planeloads of equipment and troops are flown out of the country, leaves the United States grappling with huge unresolved issues that officials had thought they would have more time to figure out. The Pentagon still has not determined how it will combat terrorist threats like Al Qaeda from afar after American troops leave. Nor have top Defense Department officials secured agreement from allies about repositioning American troops in other nearby countries. And administration officials are still grappling with the thorny question of whether American warplanes - most likely armed Reaper drones - will provide air support to Afghan forces to help prevent the country's cities from falling to the Taliban."

He fled the country in 2019, fearing arrest. But he has continued to roil Mr. Lukashenko's regime while living in exile in Lithuania, so much so that he was charged in November with inciting public disorder and social hatred."

"In the Russian Arctic, the First Stirrings of a Very Cold War"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/22/world/russia-us-arctic-military.html

Die globale Erwärmung habe zu einem drastischen Rückgang des Meereises in der Arktis geführt, wodurch Russland neuen Sicherheitsbedrohungen ausgesetzt sei, analysiert Andrew Kramer. "For its entire history, Russia was effectively defended from the north by the frozen Arctic Ocean. But the minimum summertime ice pack on the ocean in recent years is about one-third less than the average in the 1980s, when monitoring began, researchers with the Colorado-based National Snow and Ice Data Center said last year. (…) The big melt is Russia's strategic 'worst nightmare,' said Michael Kofman, a senior researcher at CNA, a think tank based in Arlington, Va. 'It opens an entire new theater in the event of conflict with the United States' that will prove difficult to defend, he noted. (…) 'In a sense, Russia is acquiring new external borders that need to be protected from potential aggressors,' the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, a Berlin-based think tank, wrote of Russia's problem of disappearing ice."

Nordkoreas Atomwaffenarsenal und sein Kernbrennstoff habe sich in den vergangenen vier Jahren etwa verdoppelt, bemerken William Broad, David Sanger und Choe Sang-Hun. "Yet, like his predecessors, Mr. Biden has made the decision not to officially acknowledge the North as a nuclear state, aides say. It is a little like pretending that the Yankees do not play baseball. But maintaining the myth has a purpose, for both the United States and South Korea. Any official acknowledgment that the North Korean arsenal is here to stay would revive the long-simmering debates about whether U.S. allies like South Korea and Japan can depend on the American nuclear umbrella - essentially a security net for countries that do not have nuclear weapons of their own."

Nach Angaben mehrerer israelischer Beamten sei es wahrscheinlich, dass innerhalb der nächsten zwei Tage ein Waffenstillstand zwischen der Hamas und Israel vereinbart werden könne, schreibt Ronen Bergman. "The cease-fire under discussion would come in stages. The first would include the cessation of all Israeli attacks on Hamas infrastructure and facilities, and an end to Israeli attempts to kill senior Hamas members, the officials said. (…) Officially, Israel has denied the existence of negotiations or the imminent signing of a deal, but that may be a tactic designed to put pressure on Hamas by showing that Israel does not fear further escalation."

US-Präsident Joe Biden habe sich für eine Waffenruhe zwischen der Hamas und Israel ausgesprochen, bemerken Isabel Kershner and David Sanger. "But he also reiterated that Israel had a right to defend itself, stopping short of publicly calling on Israel to change its approach despite rising international condemnation. The statement, issued after Mr. Biden spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, was the furthest that the president has gone toward calling for an end to the conflict. But it also reflected a continued and deep reticence by world leaders to criticize Israel, and a failure of diplomacy to persuade the two sides to curb a rising cycle of violence."

Hamza, 28, an Afghan border force soldier who had been compelled into holding this position - far from any border - after the police and local militias fled. (…) Bullets from a Taliban machine gun ricocheted through the street below, and the dull thud of grenades shook the large ornate mirror in the room where Corporal Hamza had gone in to briefly rest. (…) The city's airport shut down to commercial traffic because of mortar and rocket fire, and more than 1,000 families have fled into the more defensible city center."

"The initial publicly confirmed cases were concentrated in China and Cuba and numbered about 60, not including a group of injured C.I.A. officers whose total is not public. The new total adds cases from Europe and elsewhere in Asia and reflects efforts by the administration to more thoroughly review other incidents amid concern over a spate of them in recent months.

"DarkSide is a relative newcomer to the ransomware scene (…). It is essentially a business model in which some of the ill-gotten gains are poured into research and development on more effective forms of ransomware. The group often portrays itself as a sort of digital Robin Hood, stealing from companies and giving to others. DarkSide says it avoids hacking hospitals, funeral homes and nonprofits, but it takes aim at large corporations, at times donating its proceeds to charities."

"Why Jerusalem's Aqsa Mosque Is an Arab-Israeli Fuse"

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/10/world/middleeast/aqsa-mosque-jerusalem.html

Rick Gladstone erklärt die Rolle der al-Aqsa-Moschee im Nahost-Konflikt, vor der die gewaltsamen Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Israelis und Palästinensern am vergangenen Wochenende begannen: "The violent confrontations between Palestinians and Israeli security forces at the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem this month reflect its significance as part of one of the most contested pieces of religious territory in the Holy Land. (…) The site is part of the Old City of Jerusalem, sacred to Christians, Jews and Muslims. (…) Under a delicate status quo arrangement, an Islamic trust known as the Waqf, funded and controlled by Jordan, continued to administer the Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock, as it had done for decades, a special role reaffirmed in Israel's 1994 peace treaty with Jordan. Israeli security forces maintain a presence on the site and they coordinate with the Waqf. (…) Tensions over what critics call the arrangement's discrimination against non-Muslims have periodically boiled over into violence."

"U.S. and Iran Want to Restore the Nuclear Deal. They Disagree Deeply on What That Means."

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/09/world/middleeast/biden-iran-nuclear.html

Grundsätzlich würden sowohl Iran wie auch die USA das von Präsident Donald Trump 2018 aufgekündigte Atomabkommen gerne wiederbeleben wollen, erläutern Steven Erlanger und David Sanger. "But after five weeks of shadow boxing in Vienna hotel rooms - where the two sides pass notes through European intermediaries - it has become clear that the old deal, strictly defined, does not work for either of them anymore, at least in the long run. The Iranians are demanding that they be allowed to keep the advanced nuclear-fuel production equipment they installed after Mr. Trump abandoned the pact, and integration with the world financial system beyond what they achieved under the 2015 agreement. The Biden administration, for its part, says that restoring the old deal is just a steppingstone. It must be followed immediately by an agreement on limiting missiles and support of terrorism - and making it impossible for Iran to produce enough fuel for a bomb for decades."

Afghanische Kommandeure hätten die USA um mehr Luftunterstützung gebeten, schreiben Helene Cooper, Thomas Gibbons-Neff und Eric Schmitt. Die Anfrage verdeutliche: Noch immer seien afghanische Sicherheitskräfte stark von der amerikanischen Luftwaffe abhängig. "The Pentagon is now weighing how it will wean Afghan security forces from their dependency, something that it has failed to do since 2015, when the United States formally ended its combat mission in the country. (…) Even though air support to the Afghan security forces has dropped considerably after the peace deal the Taliban and the United States reached in February 2020 - which only allowed U.S. forces to defend Afghan troops in desperate situations - American reconnaissance drones and planes have been critical in helping the Afghans target insurgent positions with their own aircraft."
