Syriza vince elezioni Grecia: allarmi apocalittici e reazioni (spesso esagerate) al modello Tsipras

(3) Comments | Posted February 3, 2015 | 6:45 AM

WASHINGTON – La Grecia, che ci ha donato la democrazia e il teatro, oggi si prepara a fornircene una nuova sintesi: quel drammatico, isterico allarmismo dei sostenitori dell’austerità.

Di fronte a una crescita lenta e a un debito gravoso, i leader pro austerity di democrazie come la Grecia, la Spagna,...

Grecia ha traído al mundo la democracia y el teatro, y ahora nos está dando una nueva y fascinante síntesis de los dos: las alarmas dramáticas e histéricas de los defensores de la austeridad.

Frente al lento crecimiento y a la demoledora deuda, los líderes de la austeridad en...

WASHINGTON –- Greece gave us democracy and theater, and now is giving us a gripping new synthesis of the two: the dramatic, hysterical alarms of supporters of austerity.

Facing slow growth and crushing debt, “Austerian” leaders in democracies such as Greece, Spain, France, the U.K., (and, until not long ago,...

EEUU ha vuelto, según Obama, pero con cautela

(0) Comments | Posted January 24, 2015 | 3:55 AM

Al fin y al cabo, el discurso se llama del "estado de la Unión", no del estado del mundo. Por tanto, quizá se puede excusar que el presidente Barack Obama se haya centrado en la economía estadounidense y haya ignorado las crisis económica y política del planeta.

アメリカは復活した、しかし世界は危機だ【プラネット・ポリティクス】

(0) Comments | Posted January 23, 2015 | 8:23 PM

国内の指導者たちは、アメリカが「必要不可欠な国家」であると主張する。もし本当にそうならば、オバマ大統領は20日の演説以上に、世界の現状に対して率直に、そして行動的になり、より明確なビジョンを打ち出すべきだ。

When Wendell Ford Gave A Stemwinder, You Believed

(3) Comments | Posted January 23, 2015 | 2:56 PM

WASHINGTON -- It was decades ago, and I forget whom Wendell Ford had come to Louisville, Kentucky, to stump for. But who the Democrat was mattered less -- it always mattered less -- than that Ford was there to speak on his or her behalf.

"Get ready for a stemwinder,"...

세계 문제엔 소극적인 오바마

(0) Comments | Posted January 22, 2015 | 5:18 PM

버락 오바마 대통령의 연설이 "State of the World"이 아니라 "State of the Union"이라는 사실을 떠올리면 그 내용 역시 세계에 대한 것이 아니라 미국에 대한 것이라는 사실을 이해할 수 있다. 그가 지구촌 곳곳에서 터지고 있는 경제적 정치적 위기는 외면하고 미국 경제에 집중했다고 크게 탓할 수는 없다.

오바마는 '대불황'에서 회복한 미국...

Os Estados Unidos estão de volta, diz Obama. Mas ainda com cautela em relação ao mundo

(0) Comments | Posted January 21, 2015 | 5:54 PM

Washington - O discurso, afinal de contas, é chamado "O Estado da União" - não "O Estado do Mundo". Então talvez Barack Obama possa ser desculpado por dar ênfase à economia americana, ontem à noite, e por praticamente ignorar as crises políticas e econômicas do planeta.

Houve muita conversa sobre...

Planet Politics: The U.S. Is Back, But Still Cautious In The World

WASHINGTON -- The speech is, after all, called the State of the Union, not the State of the World. So perhaps President Barack Obama can be excused for dwelling on the American economy in his remarks Tuesday night, and all but ignoring the economic and political crises of...

미국의 두 얼굴

(0) Comments | Posted December 12, 2014 | 4:16 PM

14년 전 존 매케인(공화당 상원의원)은 아내, 아들과 함께 자기가 6년 동안 수감되었던 베트남 하노이의 감옥을 방문했다.

뼈는 부러졌을지 모르지만 의지는 부서지지 않은 채 그가 살아남았던 콘크리트 감옥 안에 세 식구는 섰다.

TV 카메라와 기자(나도 그 중에 하나였다)에 둘러싸인 매케인 가족은 엄숙한 표정으로 그곳을 살펴보았다. 부인과 아들은 눈물을 글썽거렸고, 매케인은...

WASHINGTON -- Dr. S. Jaishankar, one of India's most experienced diplomats, has a knack for being in crucial places at crucial times: Moscow in the early '80s, the U.S. (as a political attaché) during President Ronald Reagan's second term, Eastern Europe in the early '90s, Tokyo in the late '90s,...

WASHINGTON. – Desde el principio, los estadounidenses se han inspirado en la idea de la "justicia equitativa ante la ley". La frase aparece en el frontispicio del Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos, el templo de nuestra fe en las leyes de nuestra preciada Constitución.

Οι διαμαρτυρίες στο Φέργκιουσον για τη δολοφονία του Μάικλ Μπράουν και η Αμερικάνικη υποκρισία

(0) Comments | Posted November 27, 2014 | 6:33 AM

Από τη γέννηση της Αμερικής οι Αμερικανοί είχαν εμπνευστεί από την ιδέα “Ίση δικαιοσύνη σύμφωνα με τη νομοθεσία”.

Η εν λόγω φράση βρίσκεται στο αέτωμα του Ανώτατου Δικαστηρίου των Η.Π.Α, τον ναό της πίστης μας του πολύτιμου Συντάγματος μας.

Και είναι αγωνιώδες, ή ακόμα χειρότερα, το να βλέπουμε αυτή τη...
