"This Is the Deadliest Year for Mass Shootings in U.S. History"

http://time.com/5010973/sutherland-springs-texas-mass-shootings-history/

Im Jahr 2017 sind in den USA so viele Menschen wie nie zuvor durch Massenschießereien getötet worden, berichtet Chris Wilson nach dem Massaker in einer Kirche in Texas. "Sunday’s Sutherland Springs incident appears to be at least the fifth most deadly mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The Dec. 14, 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School claimed 27 lives. The deadliest shooting occurred in Las Vegas last month, when 58 people were killed at an outdoor music festival. Below is a graphic of every mass shooting since 1982."

"The U.N. Needs $434 Million to Respond to the World's Fastest Growing Refugee Crisis"

http://time.com/4992310/rohingya-refugees-bangladesh-united-nations/

Angesichts des erschreckenden Ausmaßes der Flüchtlingskrise in Bangladesch benötige die UNO zusätzliche Finanzhilfen von mindestens 434 Millionen US-Dollar, berichtet Feliz Solomon aus Dhaka. "The response needs are many in what aid workers describe as a textbook example of a 'complex crisis.' An already enormous refugee population — some 400,000 Rohingya have lived in camps along the border since fleeing earlier violence in the 1970s, 1990s and in Oct. 2016 — more than doubled in the span of just a few weeks, as others continue to arrive each day. (...) UNICEF says about 60% of Rohingya refugees are children, many suffering from severe acute malnutrition. The agency, which has requested $76 million to support life saving assistance over the next six months, said last week that children are arriving at the astounding rate of up to 12,000 per week."

"Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Declares Marawi 'Liberated' From ISIS Terrorists"

http://time.com/4985282/marawi-city-liberated-isis-duterte/

Nach fast fünfmonatigen Kämpfen gegen Anhänger des "Islamischen Staates" hat der philippinische Präsident Duterte die Stadt Marawi für befreit erklärt. "More than 1000 people, including over 800 militants, have died since fighting began on May 23, according to the Armed Forces of the Philippines. The conflict has displaced in excess of 350,000 people. Estimates of how much it will cost to rebuild Marawi — which has been gutted by aerial bombardment as well as the protracted ground war — have varied, but Philippine Secretary of Defence Delfin Lorenzana recently put the figure at around 100 billion pesos ($1.95billion), CNN Philippines reports."

"Russia's Military Is Banning Selfies Because Soldiers Keep Revealing Their Location to the Enemy"

http://time.com/4971824/russian-military-bans-selfies/

Das russische Militär will seinen Soldaten in Einsatzgebieten das Veröffentlichen von Selfies aus Sicherheitsgründen verbieten. "Russia's Defense Ministry warned that foreign intelligence agencies and terrorist groups could use information posted by Russian soldiers to 'destabilize the internal political and social situation in various regions of the world,' according to the Moscow Times. The concern is over geolocation data — now a regular feature of most social media networks — that can be used to identify the origin of a post or photo to within a few meters. Journalists have used this data to track troop movements and confirm the location of Russian soldiers."

"ISIS Claimed the Las Vegas Shooter as a 'Soldier.' Experts Are Skeptical."

http://time.com/4965449/isis-las-vegas-shooter-stephen-paddock/

Viele Experten bezweifeln Jared Malsin zufolge, dass der Attentäter von Las Vegas ein Anhänger des "Islamischen Staates" gewesen sei. Die entsprechende Behauptung des IS sei eine von vielen anderen, die sich später als falsch herausgestellt hätten. "Analysts say ISIS’ propaganda is directed in large part at its followers and potential recruits around the world. Following a devastating series of defeats, analysts say the group could also be attempting to reassert an image of potency through any means necessary — including by false claims. 'We can say that it isn’t true. We can prove that it isn’t true. But for Islamic State supporters, for bona fide card-carrying members of the group who are scrounging around looking around for anything that’ll show them they’re on the right path still after their group has lost most of its territory,' says [Charlie Winter, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence in London]. 'They’ll believe what they want to believe, they’ll believe that this is true.'"

"President Trump’s U.N. Speech Is Exactly What Kim Jong Un Wanted to Hear"

http://time.com/4949338/donald-trump-north-korea-un/

US-Präsident Trump habe Kim Jong-un mit seiner offenen Drohung vor der UN-Vollversammlung einen Gefallen getan, meint Charlie Campbell in seinem Kommentar aus Peking. "Such rhetoric endorses the propaganda posters that pepper the isolated state, urging 'death to U.S. imperialists,' and for its embattled 25 million populace to remain on a war footing, sacrificing freedoms to be a state of perpetual combat readiness. 'This is just a boon to North Korea,' Prof. Stephan Haggard, a Korea expert at the UC San Diego School of Global Policy, says of Trump’s speech. 'Because you have a regime that has built its entire existence around the idea that the United States is out to destroy them, and the U.S. President is saying just that.'"

"In Interview, Top Indonesian Muslim Scholar Says Stop Pretending That Orthodox Islam and Violence Aren't Linked"

http://time.com/4930742/islam-terrorism-islamophobia-violence/

Der in Jakarta lebende deutsche Korrespondent Marco Stahlhut hat für TIME.com ein Gespräch der FAZ mit Yahya Cholil Staquf übersetzt. Der einflussreiche religiöse Führer, der sich in Indonesien für einen modernen und moderaten Islam einsetzt, fordert darin westliche Politiker auf, den Zusammenhang zwischen dem islamischen Extremismus und der orthodoxen Version des Islam nicht länger zu leugnen. "There is a clear relationship between fundamentalism, terrorism, and the basic assumptions of Islamic orthodoxy. So long as we lack consensus regarding this matter, we cannot gain victory over fundamentalist violence within Islam. Radical Islamic movements are nothing new. They’ve appeared again and again throughout our own history in Indonesia. The West must stop ascribing any and all discussion of these issues to 'Islamophobia.' Or do people want to accuse me — an Islamic scholar — of being an Islamophobe too?"

"Why Russia Was Allowed to Fly a Surveillance Plane Over the Capitol and Pentagon"

http://time.com/4895574/open-skies-treaty-russia-surveillance-plane/

Angesichts der Spannungen zwischen den USA und Russland war der Flug eines russischen Überwachungsflugzeugs über Washington, D.C. am vergangenen Mittwoch für viele überraschend. Aric Jenkins erklärt, dass der Flug von der US-Regierung aufgrund des internationalen Vertrags über den Offenen Himmel genehmigt worden sei. "Open Skies officially went into effect on Jan. 1, 2002. Since then, there have been more than 1,200 surveillance flights conducted by the member nations. But given recent foreign relations between the U.S. and Russia, among other countries, will the Open Skies treaty continue in this current political comment? (...) Stephen Sestanovich, a professor of international diplomacy at Columbia University and fellow on the Council on Foreign Relations, cast doubt over the treaty's future. 'The Russians have been so ready to roll back or disregard norms and treaties that they’ve got people in Congress, in the military, in the intelligence world asking, 'Why pretend to trust each other?'' he said. 'In that atmosphere, virtually any agreement can be challenged.'"

"Vladimir Putin Doesn't Understand the Limits of Donald Trump's Power"

http://time.com/4881972/vladimir-putin-donald-trump-executive-power/

Präsident Putin verschätzt sich nach Ansicht von Simon Shuster in seinen Beziehungen zu westlichen Regierungschefs immer wieder, da er nicht verstehe, dass deren Macht durch demokratische Institutionen eingeschränkt sei. "Whether it was Jacques Chirac in France, Silvio Berlusconi in Italy or Gerhard Schroeder in Germany, each was built on a personal rapport with an incoming head of state, always another man, usually also a blowhard. Each collapsed when that leader was confronted by the limitations of democracy: term limits, a free press, an independent legislature, an unhappy electorate, or any of the other checks and balances built into their constitutions. But with each new attempt at a friendship with the West, Putin seemed to hope that his counterparts could override these curbs on their authority the same way Putin has done in Russia. They have always let him down, though none quite as spectacularly as President Trump."

"122 Countries Approve First-Ever Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons"

http://time.com/4849159/united-nations-nuclear-weapons-treaty/

Die Vertreter von über 120 Ländern haben auf einer UN-Konferenz einem neuen Vertrag über ein internationales Verbot von Atomwaffen zugestimmt. Edith M. Lederer berichtet, dass der Vertrag in Kraft tritt, sobald er von mindestens 50 Ländern ratifiziert worden ist. Die Verhandlungen seien allerdings von allen Atommächten und NATO-Ländern boykottiert worden. "The United States and other nuclear powers instead want to strengthen and reaffirm the nearly half-century-old Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, considered the cornerstone of global nonproliferation efforts. That pact sought to prevent the spread of atomic arms beyond the five original weapons powers — the U.S., Russia, Britain, France and China. (...) U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said March 27 when talks began on the nuclear weapons ban treaty that 'there is nothing I want more for my family than a world with no nuclear weapons, but we have to be realistic.' She asked if anyone thought North Korea would give up its nuclear weapons, stressing that North Koreans would be 'cheering' a nuclear ban treaty — and Americans and others would be at risk."

"Defense Chief James Mattis Says the U.S. Is Now Using 'Annihilation Tactics' Against ISIS"

http://time.com/4797075/james-mattis-islamic-state-annihilation/

Die US-Truppen seien bei ihrem Kampf gegen den "Islamischen Staat" von einer "Zermürbungstaktik" zu einer aggressiveren "Vernichtungstaktik" übergegangen, so der US-Verteidigungsminister James Mattis in einem TV-Interview am Sonntag. "Speaking on CBS’ Face the Nation, Mattis said the U.S. military has shifted its strategy from attrition, whereby enemies are moved around and denied access to vital supplies, to annihilation, where they are surrounded and unable to escape. 'Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa, we are not going to allow them to do so,' Mattis said. 'We are going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.'"

"Donald Trump After Hours"

http://time.com/donald-trump-after-hours/

Reporter und Fotografen von TIME haben exklusiven Zugang zum US-Präsidenten im Weißen Haus erhalten und berichten in der aktuellen Titelgeschichte des Magazins über ihre Eindrücke. "When he held the job, Barack Obama tended to treat the Oval Office like a sanctum sanctorum, accessible only for a small circle of advisers to break its silence on a tightly regulated schedule. For Trump, the room functions as something like a royal court or meeting hall, with open doors that senior aides and distinguished visitors flock through when he is in the building. In practice, it feels much like his old corner office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower, minus all the clutter of memorabilia, a place to convene an audience, to broadcast his exceptionalism, to entertain, take photos, amaze and make deals."

"What You Need to Know About Afghanistan's Worsening Security Challenge"

http://time.com/4753796/afghanistan-attack-security-taliban-isis/

Experten halten den jüngsten Selbstmordanschlag auf einen Stützpunkt der afghanischen Armee für ein Zeichen der generellen Verschlechterung der sicherheitspolitischen Lage im Land. Die Taliban kontrollieren demnach immer mehr Gebiete. Auch die Zahl der Zivilopfer der Kämpfe sei deutlich angestiegen. "In mid-November, 2016, only around 57% of the country’s 407 districts were under Afghan government control or influence, according to the latest assessment from the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. That was down almost 15% from November, 2015, as the Taliban expanded its influence, engaging in clashes with security forces across the country. As the fighting intensifies, the number of civilians killed or injured in the conflict has climbed to record highs, according to the U.N. More than 11,000 civilians were killed or injured in 2016, including more than 3,000 children, with the international body attributing responsibility for the vast majority of casualties to anti-government forces — mainly the Taliban."

"People in Japan Are Being Told They Have Just 10 Minutes to Prepare for a North Korean Missile Attack"

http://time.com/4753631/north-korea-japan-missile-attack/

In Japan sei die Sorge der Bevölkerung vor einem Raketenangriff Nordkoreas spürbar gewachsen, berichtet TIME.com. Offiziellen Angaben zufolge würde die Warnzeit vor einem Einschlag nur wenige Minuten betragen. "In the event of a North Korean strike, Japanese are presently being advised to seek shelter underground or in strong concrete buildings. Those unable to do so are advised to get low on the floor or crouch under tables. Schoolchildren in Osaka are being told to hide under desks, the [Japan Times] reports. (...) Rapid advances made by North Korea in ballistic-missile development have made Japan extremely vulnerable. The country is home to around 54,000 U.S. troops, making Japan a target if conflict breaks out on the Korean Peninsula."

"'We Have to Be Realistic': Nuclear Powers Sit Out U.N. Talks Aimed at Banning Nuclear Weapons"

Die USA, Russland und andere Atommächte werden sich nicht an den UN-Verhandlungen über ein weltweites Atomwaffenverbot beteiligen. Die UN-Botschafterin der USA Nikki Haley hat dies folgendermaßen begründet: "'As a mom, as a daughter, there is nothing I want more for my family than a world with no nuclear weapons. But we have to be realistic,' U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said as she and colleagues from Britain, France and about 20 other nations, not all of them nuclear states, gathered Monday outside the General Assembly hall to show opposition to the talks starting inside. Haley argued that a treaty would end up disarming nations 'trying to keep peace and safety,' while 'bad actors' wouldn't sign on or comply. 'North Korea would be the one cheering, and all of us and the people we represent would be the ones at risk,' she said."

In January and February, the coalition surpassed Russia — whose forces have launched relentless airstrikes in parts of Syria — in the number of civilians killed, Airwars found.

"Trump’s Muslim Ban 2.0 Is Just as Inhumane — and Even More Frightening"

http://time.com/4692814/trump-travel-ban-muslims/

Naureen Shah von Amnesty International hält das neue von US-Präsident Trump verhängte Einreiseverbot für Bürger aus sechs überwiegend muslimischen Ländern keineswegs für moderater als das zuvor von US-Gerichten abgelehnte Dekret. "In some ways, the second ban is worse than its predecessor. It signals that the Trump Administration is determined to pursue its anti-Muslim, extremist agenda and will not be hindered by courts — nor by the showing of public concern which followed the first ban. That remarkable cultural moment — symbolized by the immediate airport protests and sustained by the solidarity of faith groups, civil rights figures and celebrities who’ve spoken out repeatedly over the last month — seems to have gone unheeded by the Trump Administration. Nothing could be more frightening than this: An Administration that is so insulated from voices of moderation that it believes it can merely tinker with a policy that sparked outrage and somehow defuse it. This is a government unmoored from reality."

"Turkey Is Not Convinced By Erdogan's Bid to Transform the Constitution"

http://time.com/4677051/turkey-erdogan-constitution-referendum-akp/

In aktuellen Umfragen zum Verfassungsreferendum in der Türkei am 16. April haben die Gegner des von Präsident Erdogan geplanten Präsidialsystems eine Mehrheit. Selbst unter AKP-Mitgliedern gebe es Zweifel an der Verfassungsreform, berichtet Jared Malsin aus Istanbul. "In one public opinion poll, 35 percent of AKP members said they would not vote yes. Even Turkey’s former prime minister under Erdogan, Ahmet Davutoglu, said publicly in January that he had 'concerns' about the planned constitutional overhaul. Some are confused why the changes are needed, when Erdogan already enjoys sweeping power. (...) privately, some members are expressing concerns about the potential for a massive centralization of power in the hands of the executive. (...) The president remains a popular, if polarizing figure, and he could yet translate his charisma into a win in the referendum. Increasingly, the vote seems less about changes to the constitution, and more on the president himself. 'He has a lot of stake in this,' says Kadercan. 'He personalized this by putting himself back into the field, and putting his name behind yes.'"

"The World Can Expect More Cybercrime From North Korea Now That China Has Banned Its Coal"

http://time.com/4676204/north-korea-cyber-crime-hacking-china-coal/

Mit der zeitweisen Einstellung der chinesischen Kohleimporte aus Nordkorea ist Experten zufolge eine wichtige Geldquelle des Landes weggebrochen. Charlie Campbell erwartet, dass das nordkoreanische Regime nun seine Cybercrime-Aktivitäten verstärken werde, um zusätzliche Einnahmen zu generieren. "North Korea already has an elite squad of 6,800 state hackers who are engaged in global fraud, blackmail and online gambling, together generating an estimated annual revenue of $860 million, according to the Korea Institute of Liberal Democracy in Seoul. (...) Attacks have already increased in size, frequency and boldness since the imposition of last February’s U.N. sanctions. In May, North Korean agents stole the personal details of 10.3 million users of the Interpark e-commerce firm in South Korea. They then attempted to blackmail of the firm’s board for 3 billion won ($2.6 million) of untraceable bitcoin. (...) Hacks are especially likely to ramp up as Pyongyang searches for ways to fund the final stage of its quest for a nuclear-armed ballistic missile capable of hitting the U.S. mainland."

Die Fotojournalistin Lynsey Addario macht mit einer Bilderserie auf die Situation der muslimischen Rohingya in Myanmar (Birma) aufmerksam. "An estimated one million stateless Rohingya have been stripped of their citizenship in Myanmar and forced to live in modern-day concentration camps, surrounded by government military checkpoints. They are not able to leave, to work outside the camps, do not have access to basic medical care or food. Most aid groups are banned from entering or working in the camps, leaving the Rohingya to their own devices for sustenance and healthcare. (...) I have seldom seen the systematic oppression and abuse of an entire population go almost entirely unaided and undocumented. The camps and settlements in Myanmar and Bangladesh are conspicuously bereft of the international aid community and, consequently, a countless number of Rohingya are dying undocumented. This is the invisible genocide."

"The Choice - Donald Trump"

http://time.com/time-person-of-the-year-2016-donald-trump-choice/

Das TIME-Magazin hat Donald Trump zur Persönlichkeit des Jahres gewählt. Nancy Gibbs schreibt in ihrer Begründung: "This real estate baron and casino owner turned reality-TV star and provocateur — never a day spent in public office, never a debt owed to any interest besides his own — now surveys the smoking ruin of a vast political edifice that once housed parties, pundits, donors, pollsters, all those who did not see him coming or take him seriously. Out of this reckoning, Trump is poised to preside, for better or worse. For those who believe this is all for the better, Trump’s victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class; for those who see it as for the worse, the destruction extends to cherished norms of civility and discourse, a politics poisoned by vile streams of racism, sexism, nativism. (...) For reminding America that demagoguery feeds on despair and that truth is only as powerful as the trust in those who speak it, for empowering a hidden electorate by mainstreaming its furies and live-streaming its fears, and for framing tomorrow’s political culture by demolishing yesterday’s, Donald Trump is TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year."

"The Jury’s Out on Obama’s Terror Fight"

http://time.com/4592667/barack-obama-terrorism-speech-macdill/

US-Präsident Barack Obama hat seine letzte große Rede zur nationalen Sicherheit gehalten. Mark Thompson hält es in seinem Kommentar für verfrüht, ein sicherheitspolitisches Fazit der Antiterror-Strategie Obamas zu ziehen. "It was on Obama’s watch that the war on terror — a phrase Obama dislikes — downshifted into a worldwide, but quieter, campaign. It has consisted largely of drones strikes and clandestine military attacks that can be sustained, perhaps indefinitely. He got the supreme satisfaction of telling the nation on the night of May 2, 2011, that 'the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden.' But the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria has forced Obama to backpedal, and redeploy 5,000 troops to the region to 'destroy' the self-declared Islamic caliphate. When it comes to the war on terror, the question that will outlive the Obama presidency is: did he do enough?"

"Germany’s New 'Marshall Plan' Must Treat Africa as an Equal Partner"

http://time.com/4578809/marshall-plan-for-africa/

Bundesentwicklungsminister Gerd Müller hat angekündigt, bald einen neuen "Marshall-Plan" zur langfristigen Bekämpfung von Fluchtursachen in Afrika vorzulegen. Der nigerianische Geschäftsmann Tony O. Elumelu empfiehlt der Bundesregierung, bei der Umsetzung eines solchen Plans auf den oft üblichen Paternalismus zu verzichten. "If Germany is genuinely committed to an African Marshall Plan, one that treats Africa as a genuine and equal partner; and whose ambition is not a temporary fix to a migration crisis, but an attempt to cooperatively to stimulate entrepreneurship and broad-based economic growth in Africa, then I strongly endorse Chancellor Merkel’s courageous approach to Africa’s development. It will need to contain concessions on opening markets to African goods and services. It resonates with the idea of Africapitalism that I champion, and is I believe emblematic of the respect her government pays to the millions of Africans who wish for nothing more than to create a future of their own making, in Africa."

"Donald Trump Threatens to 'Terminate' Cuba Deal"

http://time.com/4583419/donald-trump-cuba-fidel-castro/

Nach seiner Kritik am internationalen Atomabkommen mit dem Iran hat der kommende US-Präsident Donald Trump auch die von Präsident Obama erzielte Einigung mit Kuba in Frage gestellt. "'If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate deal,' Trump said on Twitter. Obama worked to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba late into his term in office. Under the new terms, Americans can travel freely to Cuba and bring some Cuban goods to the U.S. However, aides to Trump have hinted there could be a reversal of that policy. 'There’s going to have to be some movement from Cuba in order to have a relationship with the United States,' Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming White House Chief of Staff, said on Fox News Sunday. He cited freeing political prisoners and ensuring religious and political freedom as important steps. 'We’ve got to have a better deal,' he said."
