The US think tank report blunting the Chinese and Russian aid to extremism

Original title: beat the bucket! The US think tank reported that aid from China and Russia contributed to extremism.

On the 17th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a special group under the U.S. Peace Research Institute published a report saying that Russia and China's growing economic and military influence could fuel extremism in developing countries. "The United States should try to stop this threat. Become a reality.

The panel published a report entitled "Beyond Homeland: Protecting America from Extremism from Fragile Countries." The main authors were Thomas Keane, former governor of New Jersey and Lee Hamilton, former chairman of the Sept. 11 Independent Inquiry Committee (dissolved in 2004). The U.S. Institute for Peace Studies, which belongs to the special group, is an independent federal institution approved and established by the U.S. Congress in 1984.

According to the report, the United States needs to "implement a new national strategy," take more measures to "strengthen fragile countries" (such as Iraq, Syria), and "prevent extremist ideas from taking root in these countries," according to the U.S. "Politics" website reported on November 11.

The report will point directly at China and Russia, saying that China and Russia are expanding their influence by providing loans and military assistance to these countries. However, these assistance is largely free from the need for respect for human rights, greater transparency and enhanced governance in other areas, thus enabling "these predatory governments to avoid reform and increase corruption", which makes it easier for people in these developing countries to lose confidence in their governments and thus tend to support them from the very bottom up." The substitution rule provided by terminal molecules. The report supports this argument by taking Russia as the largest arms supplier to date in Africa and China as the largest single trading partner in Africa and its largest creditor.

"Are countries whose development models and paths are different from those identified by the West necessarily'fragile'? Without China's support, will these governments surely fall? I don't think so! " Da Wei, director of the Center for International Strategic and Security Studies at the Institute of International Relations, first refuted the two logical presuppositions in the report in an interview with the Global Times on November 11.

"More importantly, if these countries are really `fragile states', are there more extremists after their governments fall, or are there more extremists who maintain their governance status quo?" Dawei believes that although it is difficult to come to a conclusion, the more fragile, chaotic and poorly governed a country is, the more extremists it will produce, according to the practice of international relations in the last decade or so. "If the governance capacity of these countries can be strengthened through external assistance and economic cooperation, then this will contribute to the stability of these countries, and extremists will be reduced."

On the same day the report came out, another US report gave a positive assessment of China's economic development in Asia and Africa. China's infrastructure projects in Africa and Asia are slowing economic inequalities in these countries, which are often fraught with political risks, according to a study by the Aid Data Laboratory at William and Mary College, AP reported Tuesday.
