"As America retreats, regional rogues are on the rise"

https://www.economist.com/briefing/2021/11/27/as-america-retreats-regional-rogues-are-on-the-rise

In einer multipolaren Welt werde der Einfluss mittelgroßer Mächte zunehmen, prognostiziert The Economist. "As America retreats from the world, middle-sized powers are throwing their weight around more. No one is surprised that China and Russia project hard power abroad. What is new is that smaller menaces like Belarus, Cuba, Egypt, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are doing so more brazenly than at any point in recent history. (…) Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute, a think-tank, puts it bluntly: 'The international order is going to get a lot messier as a result of the US being less involved.'"

"Allies fear Germany's incoming government will go soft on nukes"

Frankreich, Großbritannien und die USA seien besorgt, dass Deutschland unter der neuen Bundesregierung seine bisherige Position zur nuklearen Teilhabe verändern könnte, analysiert The Economist. "The 'P3' - America, Britain and France, the three nuclear-armed NATO allies that hold permanent seats on the UN Security Council - have two related concerns. First, that Germany may go soft on its involvement in NATO's 'nuclear sharing' arrangements, under which America stations up to 20 atomic bombs at Büchel Air Base in western Germany, while Germany maintains a fleet of dual-capable aircraft (DCAS), from which they can be launched. Second, that the incoming government may flirt with the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), an international disarmament effort."

"Russia's new era of repression"

https://www.economist.com/leaders/2021/11/13/russias-new-era-of-repression

Der Menschenrechtsorganisation Memorial zufolge habe Russland momentan mehr als doppelt so viele politische Gefangene wie am Ende der Sowjetära, bemerkt The Economist. "In order to justify repression at home, President Vladimir Putin is telling his people that Western policy is designed to obliterate the Russian way of life. (…) Fighting back against the West lets the Kremlin portray all those who oppose it - journalists, human-rights lawyers and activists - as foreign agents. In this way, Mr Putin's regime depends on anti-Western ideology for its politics just as it depends on oil and gas for its prosperity."

"The world must act now to stop Afghans starving"

https://www.economist.com/leaders/2021/11/13/the-world-must-act-now-to-stop-afghans-starving

Um eine humanitäre Katastrophe in Afghanistan abzuwenden, müsse die internationale Staatengemeinschaft mit den Taliban kooperieren, fordert The Economist. "Afghanistan's condition was fragile even before the fall of the capital, Kabul, in August. (…) The Taliban takeover has made everything worse. (…) There is no choice but to work with the Taliban, as distasteful as that is. That need not mean becoming chummy or supportive - just realistic. The Taliban's takeover is already terrible for Afghans. For the West to punish them further by leaving them to starve would be as cruel as anything the zealots with guns are likely to do."

"Why drones are becoming Iran's weapons of choice"

https://www.economist.com/middle-east-and-africa/why-drones-are-becoming-irans-weapons-of-choice/21806199

The Economist beleuchtet den Einsatz von Drohnen durch Iran: "Drones are fast becoming Iran's favoured weapon of asymmetric warfare, unnerving its enemies and threatening to change the balance of power in the region. (…) Like unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from advanced countries, Iranian ones are used for both surveillance and strikes (not least against ships). Unlike them, Iranian UAVs do not usually carry precision-guided munitions."

"The Taliban find themselves on the wrong side of an insurgency"

https://www.economist.com/asia/2021/10/23/the-taliban-find-themselves-on-the-wrong-side-of-an-insurgency

Die Taliban hätten ihr Friedensversprechen für Afghanistan nicht eingehalten, beobachtet The Economist. "The blast on October 15th killed at least 40 people, though some put the toll far higher. Seven days earlier, at the Gozar-e-Sayed Abad mosque in the capital of Kunduz province, Friday prayers had been interrupted by a similar atrocity. In that attack at least 50 died. Both bombings were claimed by the local offshoot of Islamic State (is), known as Islamic State Khorasan Province (iskp). (…) The Taliban's message, as they seized power, was that they would bring peace. Clearly, they have not. Their attempts to downplay the insurgency sound hollow."

Nigerias verheerende Sicherheitslage sei größtenteils auf eine schlechte Regierungsführung zurückzuführen, analysiert The Economist. "The country is growing ever harder to live or work in. (…) Nigeria is not yet a failed state, but large parts of it are failing. (…) Since politics is the swiftest route to wealth, it is a violent business, cursed by candidates who drum up ethnic or religious strife to win support. What has changed in recent years is that the government has grown so rotten that it struggles to control wide swathes of territory."

"Militants are targeting Hindu and Sikh civilians in Kashmir"

In Kaschmir seien in den vergangenen Wochen mehrere Menschen getötet worden, die verschiedenen Minderheiten angehörten, informiert The Economist. "This month unidentified militants have shot and killed at least 11 civilians - Pandits, Sikhs and non-Kashmiri migrants from elsewhere in India - for the apparent purpose of terrorising those minorities who still live alongside the Kashmiri Muslim majority. (…) In response to the murder of three Bihari workers, the territory's police chief this week ushered vulnerable migrants into military camps for their protection. That will not be enough."

stan

Die westlichen Staaten sollten auch nach dem Abzug der US-Truppen aus Afghanistan mit Pakistan im Gespräch bleiben, empfiehlt The Economist. "America and its allies have plenty of reasons to feel aggrieved. Pakistan is perpetually sparring with its neighbour, India - which is steadily becoming a vital regional partner for the West. (…) With a GDP per head that is just two-thirds of India's and which has in recent years been falling, Pakistan might seem a sensible country to shun. If only. Although Pakistan is no longer so central to America's plans, it is still a pivotal- and worrying-place. (…) The country's capacity to complicate relations between China and India means that it is too important to ignore."

The Economist skizziert die jüngsten diplomatischen Annäherungen im Nahen Osten: "Over the past five months (…) long-standing foes have embarked on a rush of diplomacy. Saudi Arabia and Iran started a dialogue in April. Turkey has sought to repair ties with Egypt, which soured after the Egyptian army overthrew an Islamist-led government in 2013 (Mr Erdogan was a vocal critic of the coup). Qatar and Egypt, which fell out for the same reason, are back on speaking terms."

"Why nations that fail women fail"

https://www.economist.com/leaders/2021/09/11/why-nations-that-fail-women-fail

Gesellschaften, in denen Frauen unterdrückt werden, seien mit höherer Wahrscheinlichkeit gewalttätig und instabil, schreibt The Economist. "Peace talks should include women. Between 1992 and 2019, only 13% of negotiators and 6% of signatories of peace deals were female. Yet peace tends to last longer when women are at the table. (…) Geopolitics should not be viewed solely through a feminist lens, any more than it should be viewed solely in terms of economics or nuclear non-proliferation. But policymakers who fail to consider the interests of half the population cannot hope to understand the world."

"Qatar's unique role in Afghanistan"

https://www.economist.com/middle-east-and-africa/2021/09/11/qatars-unique-role-in-afghanistan

The Economist beleuchtet die Rolle Katars im Afghanistan-Konflikt: "Like the talks that preceded it, last month's frantic airlift out of Kabul relied heavily on Qatar. (…) The tiny emirate, home to just 3m people (only 20% of them citizens), thus played a central role in the beginning of the end, and the end itself. Now it has a vital role as an interlocutor between Afghanistan's new rulers and the West - but it may struggle to deliver much for either side. Before the Arab spring in 2011, Qatar built a reputation as a mediator in regional disputes. (…) Unlike its neighbours in the Gulf, Qatar is also sympathetic to political Islam. No surprise, then, that it wound up facilitating talks between America and the Taliban."

https://www.economist.com/briefing/2021/08/28/americas-flight-from-afghanistan-will-embolden-jihadists-ar
ound-the-world

Der Sieg der Taliban über Afghanistan werde Dschihadisten weltweit ermutigen, schreibt The Economist. "The Taliban's return to power is undoubtedly the most trumpetable moment for jihadists since Islamic State (IS) took advantage of Sunni disaffection to create a 'caliphate' in western Iraq and eastern Syria in 2014. That inspired terror attacks in Europe and Indonesia. This victory is in some ways a greater one. For the first time since the defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in 1989, Islamists have taken a country from a superpower. (…) What that means in practice will depend on how things play out in Afghanistan, how well the morale boost is transformed into victory on the ground, and how the countries the jihadists are targeting respond."

Die Nachbarländer Afghanistans seien uneins, wie angesichts des Vormarschs der Taliban vorzugehen sei, schreibt der Economist. "'All of Afghanistan's neighbours have already, in a soft manner, accepted that there will be a Taliban takeover,' says Umer Karim of the Royal United Services Institute, a think-tank in London. The trouble is that while few in the region relish having the Taliban move in next door, they cannot agree what to do about it. Instead, each of the neighbours is gingerly positioning for its own advantage."

s-crisis/21803288

The Economist wirft einen Blick auf die Lage im Libanon ein Jahr nach der Explosion im Hafen von Beirut. "Wandering through the shattered capital in the hours and days after the explosion, it was hard to imagine things could get any worse. (...) Yet a year later things are indeed worse, almost immeasurably so. The blast was not a nadir, just another signpost on Lebanon’s long downward spiral. There has been no accountability for the disaster. Nor is there a government empowered to tackle an economic crisis that, according to the World Bank, may rank as one of the third worst anywhere in the world since the 1850s."

Belarussische Dissidenten könnten sich nirgendwo auf der Welt mehr sicher fühlen, stellt der Economist fest: "Ms Timanovskaya joins an expanding collection of Belarusians in Europe living beyond the bailiwick of a regime whose old sobriquet, 'Europe's last dictatorship', does not adequately capture its ever-worsening gangsterism. But asylum is not the guarantee of protection from Mr Lukashenko's clutches that refugees would like it to be. (…) Calls for a tougher stance towards Belarus from the West will grow. The limited sanctions imposed by the EU in June following the plane-hijacking do not seem to have changed the regime's calculus."

Der Konflikt um Anbaufläche in der Grenzregion Al-Fashaga drohe einen Krieg zwischen Äthiopien und Sudan zu entfachen, schreibt The Economist. "For eight months this slice of fertile farmland known as al-Fashaga has been on a war footing. (…) There are thought to be tens of thousands of soldiers on the Sudanese side. Nobody knows how many have been deployed by the Ethiopians. But after months of skirmishes and some small battles, many fret that just one spark could trigger a full-blown war."

The Economist skizziert die Hintergründe des andauernden Konflikts zwischen der Volksbefreiungsfront TPLF und der äthiopischen Regierung unter Ministerpräsident Abiy Ahmed: "At the heart of the conflict are differences about how Ethiopia should be organised. The TPLF has long argued that Abiy is trying to dilute the federalism that underpins the constitution. They accuse him of trying to undermine the autonomy of Ethiopia's ten ethnically based states, and of centralising power. (…) Abiy's supporters say he is trying to reduce the divisive influence of ethnicity in politics and to build a stronger, more united Ethiopia."

"The most dangerous place on Earth"

https://www.economist.com/leaders/2021/05/01/the-most-dangerous-place-on-earth

Taiwan sei inzwischen der gefährlichste Ort der Welt, so The Economist. "Leaders in Beijing say there is only one China, which they run, and that Taiwan is a rebellious part of it. America nods to the one China idea, but has spent 70 years ensuring there are two. Today, however, this strategic ambiguity is breaking down. (…) What has changed of late is America's perception of a tipping-point in China's cross-strait military build-up, 25 years in the making. (…) China builds over 100 advanced fighter planes each year; it has deployed space weapons and is bristling with precision missiles that can hit Taiwan, US Navy vessels and American bases in Japan, South Korea and Guam. In the war games that simulate a Chinese attack on Taiwan, America has started to lose. (…) Mr Xi's appetite for risk may sharpen, especially if he wants unification with Taiwan to crown his legacy."

Die Unterstützung für die kurdische Partei HDP, die sich bei der Wahl 2015 in der Türkei abzeichnete, sei nicht der Vorbote eines "kurdischen Frühlings" gewesen, erläutert The Economist. "The threats and the obstacles the Kurds face across the region will not disappear any time soon. But in the enclaves in Iraq and Syria, Kurdish leaders have real power; and in Turkey so, too, do the Kurdish people. The fact that they face being deprived of their favoured party does not mean that they are being deprived of a voice."

Die französischen Streitkräfte befänden sich in einer Transformationsphase, so The Economist. "Thirty years ago they mostly did peacekeeping. Over the past decade, they have turned to counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism, whether abroad (Opération Barkhane in the Sahel) or at home (Opération Sentinelle). In his strategic vision for 2030 published last year, however, General Thierry Burkhard, the head of the French army, outlined the need to prepare for high-intensity, state-on-state conflict. (…) The need to change scale over the next decade, says the general, will require a mix of reforms: more demanding recruitment; investment in modern equipment; simpler organisational structures to make the army more nimble; and toughened training for a major conflict."

Die neue Übergangsregierung in Libyen stehe vor alten Problemen, so The Economist. Die größte Herausforderung sei die Einmischung ausländischer Mächte. Doch auch von libyschen Akteuren sei Gegenwind zu erwarten: "(M)ilitia leaders in the west encouraged their representatives on the forum to choose the winning list because they reckoned it would make for a weak administration. It will certainly struggle to persuade the warlords to give up their arms. It may also have trouble winning over Libyans in the east, many of whom distrust the new prime minister because he comes from the western city of Misrata."

Durch Waffenlieferungen, die Ausbildung von Soldatinnen und Soldaten sowie die Nutzung von Militärstützpunkten vor Ort würden Iran und die Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate zur Destabilisierung der Situation am Horn von Afrika beitragen, analysiert The Economist. "Somalia's fragile attempts at state-building were set back earlier this month, when presidential elections were indefinitely delayed. Ethiopia, meanwhile, is at risk of splintering into warring ethnic groups. The region needs outsiders to douse these flames. Instead, many are fanning them."

Der Economist erinnert daran, dass Joe Biden Lateinamerika während seiner Amtszeit als US-Vizepräsident 16 mal besucht habe. Bidens Regionalpolitik werde sich deutlich von der Donald Trumps unterscheiden. "Bidenworld thinks it wrongheaded to confine democracy promotion to three countries. It shares the pre-Trump consensus that the neighbourhood’s stability depends on the rule of law, a strong civil society and fairer capitalism. It will seek more humane ways to control migration than bullying governments to block migrants as they pass through their countries. (…) Mr Biden will resume the fight for better governance. American ambassadors will press governments to appoint honest judges and officials. Mr Biden’s administration may propose the establishment of an anti-graft agency for all of Central America, which would support prosecutors and attorneys-general but be less intrusive than cicig and maccih. One lesson of Mr Trump’s successful bullying over migration is that the United States has great leverage in the region."

"Britain needs a post-Brexit foreign policy"

https://www.economist.com/briefing/2021/01/02/britain-needs-a-post-brexit-foreign-policy

Der Economist stellt Überlegungen über eine britische Außenpolitik nach dem Brexit an. "It is easy to dismiss Britain’s strengths, and many of its inhabitants delight in doing so. But though Britain is no longer the leading power it was in the first half of the 20th century (see chart) it is still a manifestly significant one. (…) Freed from an endless round of eu gatherings, British diplomats expect to have more time for globe trotting. (…) Over the year since Brexit various nimble moves — from offering people in Hong Kong a path to British citizenship after China’s crackdown there, to sanctions on Belarus while the rest of Europe dithered, to rapid approval for a covid vaccine — have shown that Britain can stand out. (…) For all these tokens of real potential, though, there are serious impediments to the creation, or recreation, of a 'Global Britain' — a project with which many of those who brought about Brexit are enamoured. (…) The common thread in all these doubts is whether Britain is fundamentally serious in what its leaders talk of achieving. Can it prioritise a few areas and devote sufficient attention and resources to make a real difference? And can it find a way to develop a proper policy towards Europe? Until it does so, the suspicion will remain that there is too much symbolism and too little substance in its thinking on foreign policy. Britain’s accumulated assets in the game of nations will not make up for a failure to take that game seriously."

Mit der Flucht der Anführer der Rebellion aus Mekelle sei die Schlacht um die Hauptstadt des Teilstaates Tigray in Äthiopien glücklicherweise ohne das befürchtete Blutbad beendet worden, schreibt der Economist. Der Krieg gehe allerdings weiter. "On November 28th Abiy Ahmed, Ethiopia’s prime minister, declared victory over Tigray’s ruling party, the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). A military operation started a few weeks earlier was complete, he said. This came two days after he announced an assault on the city that the army had earlier warned would brook 'no mercy'. Shelling of the city began at about ten that morning, according to eyewitnesses. By the evening Tigray’s president, Debretsion Gebremichael, and other TPLF leaders had vanished into the mountains. Crowds in the national capital, Addis Ababa, and elsewhere broke into celebration. But the fighting has not stopped. Only hours after Abiy’s announcement of victory, rockets were fired for the third time from Tigray into Eritrea, a country to its north that has been assisting Ethiopian forces."

"France’s thankless war against jihadists in the Sahel"

https://www.economist.com/europe/2020/11/12/frances-thankless-war-against-jihadists-in-the-sahel

Der französische Kampf gegen islamische Extremisten in der Sahelzone kann nach Ansicht des Economist nicht gewonnen werden. Trotzdem sei die Kampagne keineswegs nutzlos: "Certainly the mood in Gao, where one recent morning French officers could be found in the canopied mess discussing Nigerian and Malian novelists over croissants, is more upbeat. General Marc Conruyt, who commands Barkhane, declares himself very satisfied with recent operations. The French sense they have dealt a real blow to [the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS)]. 'They certainly haven’t disappeared,' says the general. 'But they don’t have the same capacity to cause trouble in this zone that they did at the end of 2019.' The French now consider rival groups affiliated to al-Qaeda to be the greater threat. On October 30th Barkhane killed at least 50 jihadists linked to al-Qaeda in an assault on a night-time convoy. For all these encouraging signs, however, the French are stuck in an unwinnable war."

https://www.economist.com/europe/2020/11/03/despite-the-horrors-in-vienna-and-paris-jihadism-has-declined

Trotz der jüngsten Terroranschläge in Frankreich und Österreich stellt der Economist fest, dass der Dschihadismus in Europa in den letzten Jahren spürbar zurückgegangen sei. Die Gefahr gehe heute vor allem von Gefängnissen aus, die als wichtiger "Inkubator des Extremismus" gelten. "The flurry of attacks recalls the bloodshed of 2015-16, when Islamist terrorists killed 12 people at Charlie Hebdo’s offices in January 2015, 131 people at multiple sites in Paris in November and 86 people in Nice the following July. Since then, however, jihadism in Europe has declined markedly. The number of completed Islamist attacks fell every year from 2017 to 2019, while the number of foiled ones rose, according to Europol, the European Union’s law-enforcement agency (see chart). Ten people were killed in 2019, the last year for which figures are available. (…) The recent attacks also highlight another worrying pattern. Mr Fejzulai was let out of prison early; the Dresden suspect had been released only five days before his attack. That reflects a wider failure of counter-terrorism policy. 'In many European countries the priority was to get people locked up,' says Peter Neumann of King’s College London, 'and then to forget about them, with many becoming further radicalised in prison.'"

"Russian military forces dazzle after a decade of reform"

https://www.economist.com/europe/2020/11/02/russian-military-forces-dazzle-after-a-decade-of-reform

Die russischen Streitkräfte hätten nach ihrem Niedergang in den Jahren nach dem Kollaps der Sowjetunion eine umfassende Transformation hinter sich gebracht, berichtet der Economist. "That began with large sums of money. Russian military expenditure approximately doubled between 2005 and 2018, when measured in exchange rates adjusted for purchasing power. Though much of the budget is secret, Russia’s annual military spending probably stands somewhere between $150bn and $180bn, says Michael Kofman of the Centre for Naval Analyses, a think-tank. That is around three times as much as Britain and close to 4% of GDP. (…) Russian forces are not just better armed, but also more fleet-footed. Thanks to improvements in readiness, Russia could probably get 100,000 troops, complete with heavy armour, to a European hotspot within 30 days. NATO might struggle to muster half the number, of lighter forces, in that time. (…) Russia’s armed forces enjoy the additional advantage of being blooded in battle. Though Russia and China may have comparable weapons, the quality of the forces, in training and combat experience, is 'night and day', says Mr Kofman."

larism

Das islamistische Attentat auf einen Lehrer habe die Warnungen von Präsident Macron vor dem Islamismus in Frankreich bestätigt, stellt der Economist fest. "At the start of this month, Emmanuel Macron headed to the town of Les Mureaux, in the Yvelines department north-west of Paris, to warn the French about the rising threat of 'Islamist separatism'. This is a radical political project, the president declared, which is testing the resilience of the secular French republic, and constitutes a menace to 'freedom of expression, freedom of conscience, and the right of blasphemy'. At the time, Mr Macron was accused in some quarters of cynically chasing the far-right vote, and in others of stigmatising Muslims. The beheading of a middle-school history teacher on October 17th, however, which the police are treating as an act of terrorism, has rendered Mr Macron’s analysis less extravagant than prescient."
