  • Igor Grosu
    Igor Grosu “The plebiscite is a chance for Moldovans to show loudly and clearly that we are Europeans. ... We are not entering Europe, we are returning to it.” 7 hours ago
  • Maia Sandu
    Maia Sandu “Joining the EU is the best thing we can give this and future generations.” 7 hours ago
  • Igor Dodon
    Igor Dodon “We are categorically opposed to this referendum. We are not saying 'no' to talks with the EU and we are not opposed to the EU. We oppose Sandu using it as an instrument for her own interests and those of her party. We are therefore asking voters during the campaign not to take part in the referendum.” 7 hours ago
  • Ben Hodges
    Ben Hodges “Since the fall of Avdiivka in Ukraine's east on February 17 [2024], its forces have oozed forward, swallowing several villages, as Ukrainian forces have performed tactical retreats. Here we are in April [2024], and [the Russians] are oozing out. Why is that? I think it's because that's the best the Russians can do. They do not have the capability to knock Ukraine out of the war. Russia lacked the ability to equip large armoured formations that could move rapidly, with supporting artillery, engineers and logistics. I don't think it exists. That's why I feel fairly confident that the mission for [Ukrainian] general Oleksandr Syrskyi for the next several months is to stabilise this as much as he can to buy time for Ukraine to grow the size of the army, to rebuild the defence industry of Ukraine, as well as give us time to find more ammunition for them. I think of 2024 as a year of industrial competition. So the army has got to buy time.” 9 hours ago

“U.S. should refrain from turning economic and trade issues into political or security issues and view the issue of production capacity from a market-oriented and global perspective. The development of China's clean energy sector, where overcapacity concerns are felt most acutely, will support the global energy transition.”

“Our relationship with the US has always been one of partners, but not of a patron state. This is not the first time that an Israeli government has been required to make decisions contrary to the US government's position. Israel will not stop its war on Gaza until Hamas is destroyed and all of its captives held there are returned.”

“It seems kind of unbelievable that Russian security services missed this. Clearly, it was an intelligence failure for this to happen in such a prominent venue right on the beltway of Moscow, and to have such a serious death toll despite those small number of terrorists that appear to have actually perpetrated the act. The Russians may choose to link this [terrorist attack] to their war against the collective West and hold the U.S. and its Ukrainian proxies - as they might call them - ultimately responsible. I wouldn't be at all surprised. If they decide to emphasize the U.S. and Ukraine link, then I think we can anticipate very harsh measures at home in the wake of this intelligence failure.”

“The South Korean-U.S. training is over, but the North's isn't over yet. They won't just stand still … they've been talking about war.”

“There is definitely increasing heat between the prime minister and the president. But I think Biden is underlining a change of tone, not a change of policy. And that explains a bit why he sounds as if he's speaking from both sides of his mouth. On one hand, he talks about red lines, and on the other hand, he talks about continuing basically unconditional support. Biden administration made the mistake of making US support for Israel unconditional. But for more than five months now, Israel has gotten the support, the arms, and the money - but it has rejected the advice of the American president, and that's why he's getting a bit frustrated with the Israeli prime minister because he does not want to see - as he said - another 30,000 dead people in Gaza.”

“All Israeli violations in the West Bank and East Jerusalem must also cease, and a political framework that leads to an end to the occupation must be reached. This framework must be based on a two-state solution, and this requires coordinating with Arab and regional powers as well as the international community, including the US and the European Union.”

“Israel and Hamas remain far apart in negotiations for a new deal to reach a truce in Gaza. I think that it's hard to square Israel's endgame. Their objective remains trying to finish off Hamas, which the US has said is impossible. Effectively, what this means is that they want to continue to bomb Gaza and further destroy it, even though they've already destroyed most of it. Hamas, on the other hand, wants a permanent ceasefire. So how do you square those two opposing aims and conditions? That's the problem right now. US is pushing hard for a deal before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. I don't think the Israelis care so much about Ramadan. Last year, Israel was beating Palestinian worshippers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound with batons. But I think the US understands that they're going to look really bad if Israel is systematically preventing aid and bombing Palestinians during the Muslim holy month, and that's why I think they're ramping up pressure.”

“We need to get that transatlantic balance right, irrespective of election electoral dynamics in the US. We must take more responsibility for our own security, while, of course, remaining fully committed to our NATO alliance.”

“Instead of dropping packages from the sky - some of which end up in the sea or outside of Gaza and which the most vulnerable cannot reach in any case - the US, the UK and others should ensure that Israel immediately opens all crossings into Gaza for aid and aid workers to assist those in need. This includes the Karni and Erez crossings, which give direct access to the north of Gaza. Only safe and unfettered access for aid and aid workers, the lifting of the siege and an immediate ceasefire can end starvation in Gaza.”

“The thing about imperial powers like the UK and the US is that they don't give a damn about the action, in this case, the occupation. They care for the actor, and the actor is an ally, Israel. That's why this court is important, because this court does not see actors. It doesn't care about the identity of the actor, it only cares about the nature of the act. And in this case, it's 75 years of dispossession, 56 years of occupation. The UK and the US don't want you to know the legal opinion of this question, because what they care about is the cynical calculus of geopolitics.”

“In 2022, the [US] administration [of Joe Biden] submitted funding requests in the spring, almost immediately after the invasion. But in 2023, it waited until mid-fall to announce what it plans to submit. Avdiivka demonstrates the cost of these political delays: human lives, lost territory, and encouraged Russia. If that's the plan 'to be with Ukraine as long as it takes', then the US delays in aid have just prolonged the war.”

“There is a fine line between deterring China and provoking it. My take is that while we should do significantly more to help Taiwan boost defenses and deter aggression, we should do so quietly, without needlessly humiliating China. Sometimes Americans loudly embrace Taiwan in ways that inflame tensions at times when we should be hoping to lower them. Let me also make the case that we think too much in terms of an invasion - when the greater risk may be China's taking lesser nibbles to pressure Taiwan, leading to the possibility of accidents and escalation that could drag us into an unintended world war, as happened in 1914.”

“The ICJ ruling puts a lot more pressure on the US and other Western allies to move on a ceasefire resolution. It makes it a lot harder for the US, along with Israel, to make the case to Western governments that are still very much concerned with international legitimacy, to maintain the idea that Israel is acting within the constraints of international law in Gaza and that it's acting in self-defence.”

“Israeli politicians have already said that they're going to ignore the ICJ order. It is much harder for, particularly, the US and European states including the UK, to ignore the order because they have a much stronger record of holding or supporting the International Court of Justice.”

“All of a sudden South Korea's rhetoric became even more hostile towards Pyongyang. In Japan as well, we hear aggressive rhetoric and it is seriously talking about setting up NATO infrastructure with U.S. assistance. They're preparing for war with the DPRK.”

“The US' policies on the Taiwan question are double-faced. On one hand, Washington does not want the Taiwan secessionists to be "troublemakers" to trigger cross-Straits conflicts, and on the other hand, Washington does not wish to see closer and warmer cross-Straits ties, as it wants to use Taiwan as tool to counter Beijing.”

“So far, both Iran and the US have acted within the framework of rational actors, because they are aware of the dangers of an all-out military conflict. In an election year, it would completely eliminate Biden's chances for re-election if American soldiers are killed. And a wider military confrontation would lead to more instability and a conflict whose repercussions will be unpredictable and would incur hefty costs for both sides. So, I don't expect to see an all-out war, but there is always a risk of miscalculations.”

“The world's foremost superpower of the past 70 years is being humiliated by Israel. America laid few red lines: No reoccupation of Gaza, which is now no reoccupation of Gaza long term; no indiscriminate bombing. And then Sullivan comes to the region and says, 'No, we understand'. Every time we talk about a spat, it involves Israel spitting and America's face-saving. It is not exactly an equal relationship. The patron continues to follow the orders of the client.”
