"Explainer: Why The U.S.-NATO Exercises In Eastern Europe Are Important"

Rikard Jozwiak erklärt, warum die NATO trotz der Coronakrise auf Militärübungen in Osteuropa besteht. "The COVID-19 pandemic has upended several military exercises, but now that restrictive measures have been eased some are going forward, albeit in a scaled-down form. Two kicked off in early June in Poland and the Baltic Sea, drawing particular interest around the world, and not just because of the logistics of holding them amid an ongoing pandemic. The proximity of the training to Russian territory is seen by many as a possible signal that the U.S. military is shifting its interest in Europe eastward. (…) The U.S. military and NATO have been quick to point out that all exercises are 'defensive in nature.' Lisa Franchetti, the commander of the Naples-based U.S. 6th Fleet, told journalists that Baltops 20 should not be interpreted as a threat to any specific country and exercises are held in international waters and international airspace. Franchetti encouraged the Russian military to behave professionally. However, many observers expect the Russian Navy to make close approaches to the exercises and that Russian jets may 'buzz' allied planes, meaning that they will fly so close as to create 'wake turbulence.'"

"Surveillance is getting under our skin - and that should alarm us"

Die Coronakrise könnte die Einführung tiefgreifender Überwachungstechnologien in bedenklichem Maße beschleunigen, warnt Yuval Noah Harari. "The coronavirus is a kind of watershed event for surveillance. Firstly, it is spreading everywhere with the disease. And secondly, we are seeing a change in the nature of surveillance from over the skin surveillance to under the skin surveillance. (…) what is happening now is that surveillance is beginning to go under the skin - revealing not just what we do, but how we feel. (…) once surveillance goes under the skin, it can be used for many other purposes. For example, if you read this article or watch the accompanying video, it might offer some clue about your political views or personality. (…) The implications of this are extreme. They can go all the way to the establishment of new totalitarian regimes - worse than anything we have seen before. They can also result in huge revolutions in the job market, in the economy, in personal relations." (Al Jazeera English vom 31.05.2020) https://kurz.bpb.de/ovy

"Coronavirus may force the U.S. intelligence community to rethink how it does its job"

Die Coronakrise könnte sich für die US-Geheimdienste als Wendepunkt herausstellen, schreibt Ken Dilanian. "In the two decades after the attacks of September 11, 2001, the CIA and other spy agencies made terrorism their top priority, with the goal of preventing another 9/11. For the most part, they succeeded. Now a pandemic has killed more Americans in four months than died in all the wars in the last half-century — 35 9/11's and counting — while inflicting trillions of dollars in economic damage. It's a disaster that is already changing how the intelligence community views health threats — and how it defines national security. 'COVID-19 is a wake-up call,' said Denis Kaufman, a former senior official at the National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) at the Defense Intelligence Agency."

"The Intelligence Community Wants New COVID-19 Tracking Tools"

Die US-Geheimdienste wollen bei der Bekämpfung der Corona-Pandemie neue Instrumente zur Verfolgung möglicher Infizierter einsetzen, berichtet Patrick Tucker. "The U.S. intelligence community’s research lab has put out a call for new data tools to track and predict the spread of COVID-19 and its effects. But some of the items on the wish list sound well beyond the current state of the art. Friday’s announcement from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency, or IARPA, seeks new tools for rapidly diagnosing COVID in people with and without symptoms, via contactless methods such as breath analysis. It seeks tools for contact tracing among populations without mobile phones, via the Internet-of-things or other means — and do it while preserving privacy."

"Die Bewegung 'QAnon' wird zur Religion"

Christian Röther stellt die relativ junge Verschwörungsbewegung "QAnon" vor, die in US-Präsident Donald Trump ihre Erfüllung, bzw. ihren Erlöser sieht. "Korrupte Eliten foltern unterirdisch Kinder, das Coronavirus ist eine Bio-Waffe und Donald Trump der Erlöser. Die Verschwörungserzählungen von 'QAnon' bedienen alte Muster und Feindbilder. Vor allem weiße Trump-Fans fühlen sich angesprochen, doch die Digitalsekte wächst auch außerhalb der USA." (Deutschlandfunk vom 10.06.2020) https://kurz.bpb.de/ow2
