U.S. CONSIDERING MORE MILITARY ASSISTANCE FOR SAUDI ARABIA IN YEMEN’S CIVIL WAR
 

ちょっと一言: 
米国がイエメン内戦への関与強化か!?。その背景にはイエメンにおけるイランの影響力増大が
 
 
For weeks, the U.S. has been weighing up whether to increase its support for Saudi Arabia’s involvement in Yemen’s ongoing civil war. On Wednesday, as U.S. defense secretary James Mattis met with Saudi royals, American officials suggested that Washington might provide additional military and intelligence assistance to the kingdom’s fight in Yemen......Various actors are embroiled in the war, which began when Iran-backed Houthi rebels ousted Yemen’s leader, Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi from the capital Sanaa in February 2015. ......

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S CONFUSING STATEMENTS ON THE CARL VINSON CARRIER
 
 
ちょっと一言:
北朝鮮近海に展開中と思われていた、米空母カールビンソンと第1空母打撃群が、実はまだ到着していない。4月9日から18日までの背景事情とは??
 
 
.......There was surprise on Monday though, when the U.S. Navy posted pictures of the North Korea-bound vessels near Indonesia, thousands of miles from the Korean Peninsula. Here’s how the administration’s account of the mission of the “armada” has shifted and changed........
On April 9 the U.S Navy’s Third Fleet issued a statement that said Admiral Harry B. Harris Jr. of the Pacific Command had ordered USS Carl Vinson and a carrier strike group to sail to the western Pacific.............On April 18, White House officials blamed the conflicting messages on a miscommunication between the Pentagon and White House, and said commanders had not kept the administration apprised of its movements.
Spicer told reporters on Wednesday that the ships were now sailing towards North Korea, while Defense Department officials said the Carl Vinson is expected to arrive in the region next week.
 



【論考】英国議会解散総選挙とメイ首相の思惑  ブレグジットのレジーム・チェンジとなるのか?

英国議会解散総選挙とメイ首相の思惑
ブレグジットのレジーム・チェンジとなるのか?
 
 
◆4月18日、英国のメイ首相は会見を行い、6月8日に総選挙を前倒しで行う意向を示した。メイ首相は、ブレグジットに向けた政府の努力を野党が妨害することで、ブレグジットの成功が危ぶまれるとし、前倒し選挙の必要性を強調している。第一野党労働党との支持率の差が大きく開いた今の時期に選挙をするメリットや、離脱関連法案の審議に向け安定多数の確保も、前言を撤回して解散総選挙に踏み切る理由になったといえよう。
 
◆2回目となるスコットランド独立の住民投票実施を巡るプレッシャーも、解散総選挙を決断した背景に挙げられるだろう。スコットランドは2016年のEU加盟継続の是非を問う国民投票で残留派が多数を占めていただけに、経済的打撃を顧みずハード・ブレグジットを追求していけば、スコットランド独立、EU残留という最も英国政府が避けたいシナリオに直面するといっても過言ではない。
 
◆メイ首相のブレグジットに対する方向性にはブレがない一方、野党は何とかしてEUとの関係性維持を目指しているようだ。なかでも自由民主党は、6月の総選挙を単一市場に留まるための最後のチャンスととらえている。そのうえでEU加盟継続の是非を問う国民投票の再実施として位置付け、英国のEU離脱を阻むために同党への投票を呼びかけている。

WAR IN AFGHANISTAN: FORMER PRESIDENT HAMID KARZAI CLAIMS THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISIS AND AMERICA
 
 
Former Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai claimed....that the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) was a tool of the U.S. Karzai, a former ally to Washington who has become increasingly critical of U.S. foreign policy, said America’s’ two-year fight against ISIS has been “weak.”
..... Karzai criticized a recent U.S. attack on ISIS in Afghanistan...... the attack, which he condemned at the time, failed to eliminate the group. (The assault killed 95 ISIS militants).
“I consider Daesh [the U.S.’] tool,” Karzai went onto say, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. “I do not differentiate at all between Daesh and America.”......
 
 




トランプ大統領・分析【外交政策】 The Case for Trump’s Foreign Policy The Right People, the Right Positions

The Case for Trump’s Foreign Policy The Right People, the Right Positions
 
 
Media coverage of U.S. President Donald Trump’s foreign policy has been overwhelmingly negative. Analysts have seized on early policy missteps, a supposed slowness in staffing the national security bureaucracy, and controversial statements and actions as evidence that Trump’s foreign policy is already failing.
 
But the critics have gotten a lot wrong and failed to give credit where credit is due. The Trump administration has left behind the rhetoric of the campaign trail and has begun to adopt foreign policies that are, for the most part, well suited to the challenges ahead. Trump inherited a crumbling international order from President Barack Obama, but he has assembled a highly capable national security team to help him update and revitalize it.
 
Many of the controversial foreign policy statements that Trump has made as president have, in fact, been consistent with established U.S. policy. Where he has broken with tradition, it has often been to embrace much-needed change. ................
