"U.S. Engagement in the Western Hemisphere Needs Attention"

https://www.thecipherbrief.com/column_article/u-s-engagement-in-the-western-hemisphere-needs-attention

Die USA müssten sich in Lateinamerika wieder stärker engagieren, fordert der ehemalige US-Diplomat Patrick Duddy. "Latin America, Almagro [the Secretary General of the Organization of American States] noted, remains the most violent and unequal region of the world. Government corruption is endemic in some countries. Drug trafficking and organized criminal violence have created nightmarish conditions in others. The quality of democratic governance is slipping, and not only in the Northern Triangle (El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala). (…) In the wake of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and indications that U.S. involvement in the Middle East is shrinking, it is time for the United States to rediscover the Americas."

"The Intelligence Community is Broken, Here's How We Fix It"

https://www.thecipherbrief.com/column/opinion/the-intelligence-community-is-broken-heres-how-we-fix-it

Nachrichtendienste bräuchten ein neues Geschäftsmodell, meint Zachery Tyson Brown. "Today (…), in sharp contrast to the Cold War era, useful information is now quite literally everywhere. Rather than belonging to few, it can come from practically anyone, practically anywhere on earth. And due to the growing complexity of international affairs, more information does not necessarily equate to better decisions. (…) What leaders need help with most today is not gathering more information, but rather making sense of all the information they already have."

"North Korean Denuclearization is Possible"

https://www.thecipherbrief.com/column/cipher-brief-expert-view/north-korean-denuclearization-is-possible

Joseph DeTrani skizziert vergangene US-Versuche der Denuklearisierung Nordkoreas und analysiert das Vorgehen des nordkoreanischen Machthabers Kim Jong Un. Darauf aufbauend blickt er optimistisch in die Zukunft: "I'm guardedly optimistic we can get North Korea to denuclearize completely and verifiably if we can accept that North Korea will not give up its nuclear weapons until it receives, in an action-for-action, commitment-for-commitment process, the security assurances it needs and a path to normal ties with the US, with access to economic development assistance and foreign direct investment."

"A New Approach to Domestic Terrorism"

https://www.thecipherbrief.com/article/united-states/a-new-approach-to-domestic-terrorism

Joe Bidens Plan zur Bekämpfung des inländischen Terrorismus sollte Änderungen an der rechtlichen, geheimdienstpolitischen, ressourcenbezogenen und bürokratischen Front vorsehen, argumentieren Javed Ali und Thomas Warrick. "The events of 6 January suggest now is the time for the Biden Administration to put forth a new, more fully resourced approach to tackle domestic terrorism that respects the Constitution but prevents violent extremists from undermining or overthrowing it. The American people may be politically divided, but there needs to be bipartisan support, and action, for the proposition that for everyone who says they support the Constitution, violent extremism is not the way."

"A Roadmap for Tackling Violent Extremist Content Online"

https://www.thecipherbrief.com/column/opinion/a-roadmap-for-tackling-violent-extremist-content-online

Der Sturm auf das US-Kapitol am 6. Januar und die darauffolgende politische Krise in den Vereinigten Staaten hätten gezeigt, welche Bedeutung soziale Medien bei der Mobilisierung von Personengruppen spielten, kommentiert Javed Ali. Bislang gebe es keinen strategischen Rahmenplan für Tech-Unternehmen, wie nationale Sicherheitsherausforderungen zu bewältigen seien. "Like any complex problem, there are pros and cons to a more strategic and unified tech company approach towards this challenge. And even if these or other measures are instituted down the road, by themselves they will not be the only solution, since the federal government also needs to rethink its current counterterrorism paradigm to deliver better results given what appear to be breakdowns and gaps in intelligence analysis and information-sharing, crisis management, and physical security responses. Nevertheless, increased collaboration and coordination by the tech community resulting in more permanent and enduring measures would play a large role in preventing a repeat of what occurred at the US Capitol just a few weeks ago."

"The Climate and U.S. National Security: A Conversation Series"

https://www.thecipherbrief.com/article/arctic/the-climate-and-u-s-national-security-a-conversation-series

Der Klimawandel habe sowohl kurz- wie auch langfristig beträchtliche Auswirkungen auf die US-amerikanische Sicherheit, so die Einschätzung von Admiral James Stavridis im Gespräch mit Kristin Wood. "Clearly, disruptive weather patterns will cause significant disruptions, but the longer-term damage from climate change may be even worse. Already, significant conflicts are being fueled by high temperatures contributing to water shortages and crop failures in Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia. Wars in Syria, Iraq, Mali and Afghanistan are all examples of that."
