试读版 | 刘鹤有多紧张?

美国退导中俄军备失控;刘鹤有多紧张;调查报导与王健的隐私

内容梗概

  • 拥挤的总统办公室,川普接见刘鹤的场景,与习近平在宽大的大厅让宾客远远走来的场景,是中美不同的习俗还是不同的文明?

  • 刘鹤并没有外界想像的那么大的压力,也不再担心被人指责为卖国贼。他试图表现轻松,但被人看出还是紧张。其实,大家知道,拍板定案的只能是习近平。

  • 春节过后,美国团前往北京作细节敲定,形成川普、习近平两人宣示的文本。习近平希望川普能帮忙推销一下海南,川普还未答应。

  • 中西方传统媒体都减少了调查报导,所以法国《解放报》对王健之死作的长篇调查,令人钦佩。报导排除了王健政治谋杀的阴谋论,也认为不大可能是意外死亡,更可能是自杀。

  • 不过,《点点今天事》认为,在意外死亡与自杀之间,还有些灰色死因。基涉及个人隐私,留待未来公开。

  • 王健这次法国之行,保镖裴揇楠来自武警,另一人则来自尼泊尔,王健信奉藏传佛教。

  • 今天美国可能退出与俄罗斯的《中程导弹条约》,未必造成中美俄军备全面失控,但是各方会选择性发展某些武器,中共迷恋于精密导弹,以图击中台湾总统办公桌。

  • 这个由里根与戈尔巴乔夫签署的条约,缺乏互信的监管,却给了中共的机会。不过,各国必须坐下来达成新的共识。 美国在战略上同时对付俄罗斯、中国,显然有些不利。以美国目前政治气氛,川普修正有心无力。

In Episode 2019/02/01 of 点点今天事:

  • Pin Ho @nyhopin of @MingjingNews noted that the United States announced its decision to suspend one of the last major nuclear arms control treaties with Russia. Does the decision reflect the Trump administration's intention to more forcefully confront not only Russia but also China? Will the United States and China enter a new arms race? In this episode, Ho takes stock of the the situation and promises a close follow-up. He worries that by challenging Russia and China simultaneously, the US will be stretched too thin on both fronts. (00:22)

  • Though important, good investigative journalism is costly to produce and hard to come across. Ho speaks highly of Libération for its thorough investigation into the sudden death of Wang Jian, co-founder and ex- top executive of the giant Chinese conglomerate HNA Group. That said, does the article give the whole picture? Ho hints that there might be a third possibility besides suicide or homicide, another "gray area", so to speak. But he refrains from giving out too much information now in order to protect the privacy of the relevant parties. (6:44)

  • More on trade talks! Ho thinks the public reads too much into the seating arrangement of Liu He, as he believes it is what an Oval Office meeting hosting a foreign delegation should look like. Ho emphasizes the deal won't be finalized until Xi and Trump meet with each other in person. (15:37)
