The new US military alliance, UK and Australia

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, US President Joe Biden and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison (Photo montage) In day 15 of September, a statement made by President Joe Biden, with the virtual participation of British prime ministers, Boris Johnson, and Australian, Scott Morrison, caused protests from China and indignation in France: US and UK agreed to transfer to Australia the technology needed for the local production of nuclear-powered submarines. Os protestos chineses são compreensíveis. After all, embora o nome da China não tenha sido citado em nenhum momento, é óbvio que a posse de submarinos nucleares pela Austrália tem a finalidade de conter a emergente potência asiática, detentora da maior Marinha do mundo em quantidade de meio...

EU threat to halt the export of vaccines to the UK in an attempt to move forward with its own immunization campaign

President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen 17 March 2021. (John Thys, Pool via AP) With the start of vaccination against COVID-19, the first diplomatic friction between the EU and the United Kingdom after Brexit. One month after the completion of the agreement that sealed the UK's exit from the bloc, both fight a vaccine war against COVID-19, creating tension in a process of rebuilding their bilateral relations, in addition to risking delaying global efforts to combat the health crisis. Due to the agility of the British authorities in approving immunization agents and signing contracts with suppliers, the United Kingdom was the second state to start vaccinating its population in the world, second only to Russia, so it has a positive contrast in relation to...

How the British see their role in the developing world 2030 - and how they are preparing to exercise it

The United Kingdom has just released a document which I think is very important to read, fundamental even, for those who are willing to understand the game that the great powers are playing in the international arena. In him, revisions of integrated defense and security policies are presented, Britain's international relations and development[1]. The document has, in the introduction, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's vision for the United Kingdom in the year 2030. In summary, it is an optimistic view of your country's role in the world, who sees the UK as one of the most influential nations on the planet, with a strong economy and that, due to the emphasis on the adoption of scientific and technological innovations, will be better equipped to face an even more competitive world..

What is America First?

Illustration by Eleanor Shakespeare for TIME Throughout the history of the United States, it is possible to perceive a pendular movement around the Isolationism-Interventionism axis. Recently, there has been a tendency to seek to analyze in advance the foreign policy of the US presidents in terms of the political party and its alleged connection with one of the extremes of this axis. (Republicans with isolationism and Democrats with interventionism). I propose an analysis that understands these movements in a more elongated way, based on ages. To understand this reading, the first question we must ask ourselves is: what does the term America First mean and where does it come from? The expression America First (“United States first”, in a free translation) goes back to President Thomas Jefferson (to have...

Documented cases of forced labor, family separation and destruction of mosques and other complementary religious sites..

Caso um acordo não seja estabelecido, as indústrias automotivas do RU e da UE sofrerão abalos tanto na fabricação quanto no comércio, tendo em vista os possíveis aumentos tarifár...
