  • Sébastien Falletti, Pourquoi la Chine renforce-t-elle son arsenal nucléaire? (Le Figaro) : La Chine a entamé le renforcement tous azimuts de sa force de frappe nucléaire, sonnant l’alarme au Pentagone. Washington voudrait des négociations de «stabilité stratégique» pour prévenir une crise. 
  • Eri Sugiura e Nic Fildes, Japan and Australia sign defence pact amid rising China threat (Financial Times): Japan and Australia signed a landmark defence agreement on Thursday to accelerate military co-operation between the two countries and respond to China’s growing assertiveness in the Indo-Pacific. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison, ahead of a planned summit, signed the Reciprocal Access Agreement to promote joint exercises and disaster relief operations.
  • Alain Frachon, Une guerre en 2022? (Le Monde) : Europe, Asie, Moyen-Orient : dans ces trois régions, la possibilité d’une guerre, comme dirait Michel Houellebecq, menace l’année 2022.

  • Jonathan Stevenson e Steven Simon, We need to think the unthinkable about the US (The New York Times): A year after the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol, the United States seems perhaps even more alarmingly fractious and divided. Regrettably, the right has sustained its support for Donald Trump and continued its assault on American democratic norms.
