🧵 Questa settimana ho letto il nuovo libro di @Cinzia_Bianco e Matteo Legrenzi, un quadro esaustivo delle evoluzioni nell’area del #Golfo dalle Primavere arabe in poi. Si parla anche di rapporti tra le monarchie e il resto del mondo: tre fattori mi sembrano fondamentali 👇(1/n) Image
@Cinzia_Bianco 2. L’ITALIA E L’UE

Uno dei temi è la miopia italiana (ed europea) nella gestione delle relazioni con il Golfo. Le capitali europee non hanno saputo reagire in modo efficace al crescente disinteresse americano verso la regione, pagando a caro prezzo questa disattenzione. (2/n)
@Cinzia_Bianco L'#Europa non ha visto arrivare le monarchie come attore globale. Il caso più interessante è stato senz’altro quello della #Libia, dove sia #Italia che #Francia si sono trovate impreparate di fronte all’ascesa di EAU e Qatar nello scontro tra le fazioni libiche. (3/n)

1. We have come out with our grand report titled :

"The BRI Status: A Grand Report" on Its Present and Future.

Here is a thread on the same.
#BRI #China


@ShawnG927 @jenny_kjacobs @tiffanymeier_ @NoCCPGenocide @UMM1776 The status of the Belt and ...
2. "The #BRI Status: A Grand Report on Its Present and Future" sheds light on numerous challenges faced by BRI like:
cost overruns,
environmental damage,
funding issues,
repeated delays,
lack of progress,
and poor quality of development.
@Santos4Congress Image
3. According to our investigation, 62.8% of the countries that have joined the #BRI are #developing countries, while around 17% are #developed countries.

This suggests that the BRI is primarily focused on developing countries.

You can be that way if you'd like, Daniel. No one's upset that you're a #Kremlin employee. Everyone has to make a living, right? 🤷‍♂️

Just understand that we shall continue to obstruct #Russia's plainly obvious #war of conquest—apparently your definition of "#warmongering."

I'd probably miss the old #Soviet days too if I was you. We can understand your desire to rebuild the old empire.

Although, for the sake of your mental health, I hope you're not too overly nostalgic. Now that we know what you're up to, we'll certainly thwart your ambitions.

We'd had high hopes that you'd choose a more enlightened means of restoring your respectability. 🌍

Unfortunately, like the fellow in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade film who foolishly drank from the necrotizing holy grail instead of the real one, "you've chosen poorly."

🧵It is increasingly clear that #China is positioning itself to benefit from the war in #Ukraine. Putin’s folly has increased #Russia’s dependence on China for energy exports, accelerating Moscow’s vassalization to Beijing. It’s increasingly clear China is in the lead. 1/5
Beijing has also been able to exploit differences between Washington, Paris and Berlin when it comes to their #China policy, with a flurry of senior European leaders visits to China underscoring Beijing’s growing influence. China is now a rising great power in Europe. 2/5
Through its Belt and Road initiative China has sought to flip the maritime-to-land domain relationship in its favor, building a land-based supply chain network that—if successfully completed & defended—would enable China to compete from a position of advantage vice the US. 3/5

🧵I grow weary of the “China first ”school in US policy community, which argues that since our military isn’t big enough to cover both #Europe & #Asia, we need to stop aiding #Ukraine, leave EUR to its own devices & husband our resources to focus on the pacing threat in Asia.1/6
I’m sorry but this makes no sense. The “China first” school is retreading the tired “pivot” rhetoric from the last decade. You don’t try to solve the problem by running away from it. If our military is too small to secure our strategic interests, we need to build it up. 2/6
The Atlantic and the Pacific are not and either/or proposition; they are together/with. They are one problem set. China and Russia understand it—they have sought to create a simultaneous two-frontier crisis for us: one in Eastern Europe, the other in the Indo-Pacific. 3/6

How US invented vassal state global diplomacy:
#USA #Europe #India #Asia ImageImageImageImage
1. It was presented by President James Monroe to Congress in 1823, proclaimed the United States' opinion that European powers should no longer colonize or interfere with the sovereign nations located in the Americas.
2. By the early 1820s, many Latin American countries had won their independence from Spain or Portugal, with the U.S. government recognizing the new republics of Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Mexico in 1822.

🧵The closer we get to US Presidential primaries the more we hear voices in various outlets advocating that we end our support for #Ukraine, and even leave #Europe altogether. The argument is that we focus instead on #Asia, as #China poses the greatest threat to US security. 1/6
Some of those pieces are analytical, others veer into partisan screeds. But they all share two assumptions in common: that 1.our support for #Ukraine is a distraction from the real threat, and 2. that we lack sufficient resources to engage both in the Atlantic and the Pacific.2/6
This argument fundamentally misreads our geopolitics. The United States is a quintessentially maritime power-an island on a continental scale. We have the maintenance of the Navy written into our Constitution. Access to the World Ocean has historically nurtured our prosperity.3/6

In another tweet which I will append below, I write about the dizzying diplomacy that #Eritrea #Sudan #Somalia #SouthSudan are going thru. Here, I am going to include momentous changes all happening at once. A New World Order?

This happened, via #China…
“Last week, #SaudiArabia and #Iran announced that they would reëstablish diplomatic relations after seven years of severed ties. The two nations pledged to reopen their embassies and also agreed to begin coöperating in areas such as security and trade.”

🧵I keep getting emails from various people to tell me that 1. #Ukraine can’t win or 2. that the war in UKR is a distraction from the real threat posed by #China. Then I get those about how we are depleting our stocks and won’t have enough should a crisis erupt over #Taiwan 1/5
To the first point: Neither I nor the naysayers know what the final outcome in #Ukraine will be. Wars are inherently unpredictable.They are not just about mass, population, or resources. History is replete with wars where a smaller but better motivated and led force prevailed 2/5
To the second point: We are in a global contest between democracies and dictatorships. #Russia and #China are aligned against us not because we pushed them together but because they share the same interest: to dismantle the current order. These theaters are interconnected. 3/5

1. It seems that #Russia has found another opportunity to circumvent #EU and #US #sanctions.
Which one? - mass purchase of tankers. Over the past six months, 240 vessels have been sold in the world,⬇️
@SecBlinken @POTUS
@RishiSunak @AndrzejDuda…
2. and all of them have unknown owners. And this is already the largest shadow fleet in the history of shipping.
#Russia is buying 25 to 35 large tankers every month to increase the number of ships it can carry to bypass #sanctions.⬇️

3. The shadow fleet of the country already reaches 600 tankers, which is 10% of the world volume of vessels of this class, - #CNN

Tankers carrying Russian oil are divided into two categories: "gray" and "dark" ships.

The "grey" ships were mainly sold by #European⬇️
