Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”

amazon.com/China-Goes-Sea…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

Ein paar interessante Grafiken zum geopolitischen Aufstieg #China ´s.
Laut US-Quellen arbeitet die Volksrepublik rasant am Ausbau seiner nuklearen Streitkräfte und hat eine vielfache Steigerung für die Zukunft noch vor.
Bis 2030 wolle #Peking 1000 Atomsprengköpfe besitzen.
(1/7) Image
Wie weit der Ausbau dann langfristig gehen soll, ist unklar.
Brisant wäre vor allem die Frage, ob #China die Bestände von #Russland und USA erreichen oder gar diese übertreffen will.
Dafür wäre allerdings noch mal eine vielfache Steigerung notwendig.
#Peking
(2/7) Image
Interessant ist auch die Struktur der chinesischen Atomaufrüstung.
Wie man in der Grafik sieht, haben luftstationierte Atomsprengköpfe sogar abgenommen.
Der gesamte Zuwachs kommt durch bodengestützte Sprengköpfe.
Der Grund dafür ist mir persönlich unbekannt.
Jemand eine Idee?

Festive2021 #Lesotho History Thread #3!

This one comes from @maxratic wanting to know the connection between #Lesotho Highlands Water Project (LHWP) and military govt (1986-1993).

Buckle up, long one coming. We will get to the military govt, but this project goes way back!
So interior South Africa (Free State and Gauteng) is pretty dry, and it doesn't have great rivers (Vaal is nice, but its flow fluctuates quite a bit in its natural state) so economic heartland (Kimberley's diamonds, gold on Witwatersrand and in Free State) is water poor.
#Lesotho, on the other hand, is not! The mountains get a lot of rain. And the mountains make people who think about dams very excited.

So from 1920s, folks in Lesotho and South Africa started thinking about tapping into that.

#Xi
#Taiwan
As #PRC/#CCP power peaks over this decade, #Xi may seek #Taiwan as historic prize.

To protect their security & rules-based order, US/Allies must mobilize immediately to deter aggression.

The mission is vital, the stakes are high, & the clock is ticking.

bit.ly/PLA2027 Image
US/Allies/#Taiwan now face “#DecadeOfDanger” w/ peaking #Xi/#CCP/#PRC as #China has extreme version of “S-Curved #slowdown.”

Xi’s risk acceptance will likely be amplified by his track record of largely-uncountered revisionist actions vs. neighbors & RBO.

When talking about jeopodising 'National Security', are they referring to jeopodising their hidden arrangements with 'other' National Security Agencies?

Military’s Murphy Laws…
(Via WhatsApp)
● Never share a bunker with anyone braver than yourself.
● Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
● Five-second fuses always burn in three seconds.
● The easy way is always mined.
1/10
#Military #MurphysLaw
● Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.
● If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in the combat zone.
● Incoming fire has the right of way.
● No combat-ready unit has ever passed inspection.
2/10
● No inspection ready unit has ever passed combat.
● If the enemy is within range, so are you.
● The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.
● Tracers work both ways.

[1/15] #China’s military technology is rapidly advancing, and American companies are fueling the fire.

Last month, @Intel and @Sequoia were linked to a company contracted to provide China’s military with #AI.

That's just the tip of the iceberg.

THREAD👇

[2/15] It’s no secret that China uses U.S. tech to create their weapons.

More than 90% of Chinese #semiconductors rely on U.S. and allied technologies and it is believed that U.S. tech contributed to China’s test of a nuclear-capable #hypersonic weapon.

theepochtimes.com/chinese-regime…
[3/15] To that end, the National Counterintelligence & Security Center (@NCSCgov) warned that China was engaged in “comprehensive” efforts to buy, copy, and steal critical and emerging tech from the United States, including semiconductors and #AIML tools.

THREAD: A year ago today Nov 8, #Myanmar held its elections where #AungSanSuuKyi #NLD won in an even bigger landslide than 2015 with over 80% of total contested seats. But this win has led to a #militarycoup takeover on Feb 1 (1/5)

#Myanmar citizens' resounding support for #AungSanSuuKyi #NLD caught all especially military by surprise. The results caused greater discomfort for #military who used that as a key basis to stage a #coup alleging electoral fraud which independent election observers refute (2/5)
9 months into #Myanmar #militarycoup, World Bank estimates an almost 20% #economic contraction this year, drive-by shootings becoming common, collapsed education & healthcare sectors. Over 220,000 displaced. @aapp records over 1,200 people have died (3/5) #WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar

On the occassion of #OXI day, I also want to highlight the personal story of a great and sadly still rather unknown Greek-jewish hero: Mordecaios Frizis (1893-1940).

He was a colonel in the #Greek military and died as first officer and war hero during the Italian #invasion.
First, a little background: #Jews have lived in Greece since pre-Christian times, and the oldest Jewish communities in Europe have their roots there. They were an integral part of society for millennia until the barbarism of the 20th century reached the country.
Almost 60,000 Jews, more than 75% of them from Thessaloniki, were cruelly murdered mainly in the gas chambers of the #Auschwitz and #Treblinka extermination camps. 97% of the Jews in #Thessaloniki did not survive the #Holocaust. Today, only about 5000 live in Greece.

1/ A question to the #Police and to the #Military, to the active duty officers, to those still in training and to the retired ones. Did your training and education ever involved a scenario where the enemy and the danger to your own country and to the people comes directly from ..
2/ your own government, your superiors, Chiefs and Generals ? Did any of you received a formal training in how to recognize that, how to react and what to do when such an event occurs ? If not, then you should really rethink what you have been taught since joining / enlisting.
3/ The good news is, I will provide a free lesson for you in this regard and will also remind you of a few things along the way. Many of you joined because you wanted to learn how to protect yourself and others when necessary or when the time comes. Many of you joined as you ..

He @Booker4KY, want any ammo to go after @RandPaul for stuff that's useless? Because this can help.
I mean from a Self-declared "#Libertarian", who seriously isn't he's #SocialConservative at best, it's not hard to dig up dirt on @RandPaul of his Voting Records. Like the 2016 Tax Bill that gave more money to the #Rich, Supports Banning #Abortion (which isn't Libertarian),...
Opposes #LGBTQIA Rights like Same Sex Marriage & wanted it to be banned, Rand is inconsistent on #MilitarySpending of sometimes leaning to not for it or for it in offensive wars (which many Libertarians call that out & believe in Defense of a Direct Threat of an Attack)...
