On my way home from #MSC2019 - and reflecting on the debates, speeches and informal meetings of the past four days in Munich. Let me share my very personal summary - w/ a focus on the transatlantic partnership. Last year, I was quite pessimistic... 1/
So let me start with a bit of good news. In our #MSCreport, we asked who would pick up the pieces of a disintegrating global order. At least rhetorically, the Europeans and representatives of other like-minded liberal democracies have underlined their willingness to step up. 2/
Most attendees agreed that Chancellor #Merkel gave one of the best foreign policy speeches of her career. She really hit a nerve in the audience. Merkel forcefully argued that "all of us" had to pick up the pieces together. 3/

1/As we wrap up another crazy week in US politics, struck by how aggressive GOPers in Senate, IC community pushed back on Trump's big global plays. The intelligence community's repudiation of Trumpism was unprecedented, and epic:…
2/The Senate, led by Trump's most loyal Congressional ally, Mitch McConnell, voted 68-23 to challenge his Syria/Afghanistan withdrawals.… It was an extraordinary rebuke of the President by his own party.
3/6 GOP Senators joined with a bi-partisan group in the House to introduce a bill which would revoke Trump's authority to unilaterally impose tariffs as he's been doing over the past two years. This is another MAJOR rebuke of the POTUS by Republicans.

Når folk læser #MissileDefenseReview, og #dkmedier måske skriver om det, så håber jeg, at man forholder sig til det reelle indhold og ikke lader sig styre af, at det er et "Trump dokument", for der er faktisk mange gode ting i det, som jeg vil prøve at skrive lidt om her.
Først og fremmest er det vigtigt at forstå, at #missilforsvar normalt nyder opbakning fra både demokrater og republikanere i Kongressen og at amerikansk politik omkring #missilforsvar ikke oplever de store udsving alt efter hvilken præsident der sidder.
ping @PC_Ulrich
Helt overordnet set er det seneste #MissileDefenseReview en naturlig fortsættelse af Obama administrationens seneste 2010 #BallisticMissileDefenseReview. Der er dog områder, hvor #2019MDR har udviklet sig og adskiller sig ift #2010BMDR, hvilket jeg vil forsøge at beskrive her 👇

22 Republicans voted against legislation aimed to keep the US in #NATO. The bill goes to Senate where Mitch McConnel will most likely block it. Putin's goals: 1. lifting sanctions (in progress); 2. dissolve NATO; 3. weaken the US, UK, EU; 3. normalize war in Syria and Ukraine.
Trump's first anti-NATO step: in Sept 1987, 2 months after his first visit to the USSR (paid by the Intourist, a state agency reporting to the KGB), Trump bought full-page anti-NATO ads in NYT, WaPo & Boston Globe at a total cost of $94,801.…
On Jan 17, Trump canceled Pelosi's trip to Brussels & Afganistan calling it "an excursion." Pelosi was to meet with the top NATO commanders & reaffirm the US 'ironclad commitment' to the NATO."Trump's motivation: not wanting to use a military jet during the government shutdown.

Turkish President #Erdogan will meet with his Russian counterpart on January 23 to discuss the future of the Syrian east and the city of Manbij. This comes after a telephone conversation between Erdogan and #Trump before yesterday.1/12
#Syria #Turkey #USA #Russia
With the scrutiny of the Turkish, American, Kurdish and Russian military movements in the Syrian east and its surroundings, it is now possible to develop a scenario that will be closest to what will be the map of the Syrian East.2/12

In a secret visit to #Ankara a few days ago, a Syrian delegation led by Ahmed al-#Jarba, a leader of a military group of Arabs supported by the International Coalition and #Washington, arrived from the areas of #SDF.3/12

NEW: FBI Opened Counterintelligence Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia Against the United States - The New York Times…
FBI was suspicious of candidate Trump’s ties to Russia but held off opening an investigation…in part b/c they were uncertain how to proceed w/ an inquiry of such sensitivity & magnitude. Then Trump’s conduct as POTUS—firing Comey, bragging to Russians in Oval abt it—changed that
Fmr FBI Counterintel Asst Dir @FrankFigliuzzi1: Investigation reported in @nytimes would have to have surpassed the evidentiary threshold from preliminary into full inquiry. The worst case scenario is investigating whether the POTUS is working for Russia against the US. #Maddow

THREAD on @RT_Erdogan's @nytimes op-ed, #Ankara's relations with @realDonaldTrump, #Putin
1.#Erdogan's op-ed - masterpiece of communication effort in hostile info-environment,the lobbysts who worked on it deserve credit for understanding psychology of Western reader&current political discourse in #US which helps them pick arguments urbi et orbi
2. Endorsment: #Erdogan basically argues #Trump is right in his decision to depart #Syria but it should be done in a smat way to meet "interests of US, international cummunity & Syrians" => shout out to both Trump's conservative constituency & liberals: "TUR cares about YOU"

🌟🇺🇸 ONE MORE DAY. 🇺🇸🌟

An artist's perspective. Beginning 8 Nov 2016 many of us were stunned as our Democracy seemed to be turned upside down by tumultuous events surrounding the election. Like many, I was numbed & disoriented by the apparent UNBELIEVABILITY of the outcome.1/x
🌟🇺🇸 ONE MORE DAY. 🇺🇸🌟 2

Today, more than 2 years later, I review pivotal events which led to this day... ONE MORE DAY... before 116 Congress convenes - & brings our citizens, our allies, & world into a full realization of criminality which threatens democratic rule of law.
🌟🇺🇸 ONE MORE DAY. 🇺🇸🌟 3

Like many, the election launched me into a quest for answers about WHAT WAS HAPPENING to our democratic process! The immediate & potent public reaction of outrage, protest, resistance town halls were stunning evidence that I was not alone in my resolve

Having a good time with #NewYearsEve?
Let me ruin it with this map of the military situation in Eastern Europe, which shows us:

1) #Russia's massive military buildup vs. #Ukraine & #Europe: 33x brigades & 35x regiments. (@USarmy in total: 31x brigades & 7x regiments/groups)

2) If #Russia annexes #Belarus, then #Putin will forward deploy his tanks to #Poland's border & the doorstep of #Lithuania's capital #Vilnius. He will also threaten #Ukraine's capital #Kyiv from the #North and it will be easy for Russian troops to close the #Suwalki Gap.

3) #Poland's best brigades are based near #Germany. They must move East to protect #Warsaw & be an operational reserve to come to the aid of #Lithuania. Poland also needs more tanks; & modern attack helicopters, infantry fighting vehicles, fighters, guided missile artillery.

#Russia is absolutely violating the #INFTreaty. If @RusEmbUSA is counting on the @StateDept to not provide evidence on this one, I bet they’re going to be very disappointed. But the real issue is #China… who isn’t a party to the treaty & who must be included in any new one.
… moreover, #Putin is a bonafide expert on missiles (& on #MissileDefense). If you speak Russian, this video shows him demonstrating his expert-level knowledge of these systems, particularly on #Romania’s #NATO Missile Defense System, a #Bush/#Obama plan.
… the truth is that #Russia’s flagrant violations of the #INFTreaty are a response to our #MissileDefense plans… which of course will only make use pursue such defenses even faster, & so on. Here’s another video where he threatens “retaliation.”

Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi in plea negotiations with Mueller, which could shed light on whether Trump or his advisers were linked to WikiLeaks’ release of hacked Democratic emails in 2016…
"Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I'm back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging."

Corsi informed Stone about the planned WikiLeaks Dem email releases 2 months in advance.

And Mueller has the exchange.…
"Stone responded, "Get to (Assange) [a]t Ecuadorian Embassy in London and get the pending (WikiLeaks) emails."

Corsi passed the request along to conservative author Ted Malloch in London"

🔥Very important thread.🔥

💥No one screamed, shouted & amplified the tactics the Russians used in the Ukraine, Georgia and Estonia, years before they used many of the same tactics they used in the U.S. before the 2016 & 2108 elections.

💥The European Court of Justice (ECJ) will play a significant role into whether the U.K. can reverse the Brexit vote and they are expected to rule before Christmas time.

💀Final exit date is March 29, 2019.

I had the opportunity to attend the #NATO-Industry Forum in Berlin yesterday and the day before, and to moderate the session on autonomy in warfare. A few observations (thread)
EU-NATO relations were a big topic, with lots of discussion of the European Defence Fund, PESCO, etc. Everyone, including EU commissioner @EBienkowskaEU and Gen Sec Stoltenberg emphasised that Europe's defence efforts are complementary and not in competition with NATO...
...and yet, the fact that this needs to be continuously emphasised at least points to some worries somewhere.

1/ The President of the United States is systematically dismantling all the institutions we built after WWII to maintain the world order we created.

2/ #NATO, the UN, the WTO, the IMF, World Bank, and our trade agreements are mechanisms for us to have a say in what other countries do. They are tools of our power but they come at a cost.

We cannot just do whatever we want without consulting others and in some cases it costs $
3/ Our modern #empire is dependent upon the US Dollar and US military power. First let's talk about the $USD.

By FAR our most powerful tool, it is based on our political and economic stability. While even DJT can't destroy our economy, he is straining our political stability.

Britain’s Collaboration with pro-Jihadist Forces in #Kosovo.
How the British colluded with the rebel Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which fought alongside al-Qaida militants and essentially acted as NATO’s ground forces in Kosovo.
October 2006, Chancellor Gordon Brown said: The threat from al-Qaida did not begin on September 11th – indeed the attacks on the twin towers were being planned as the United States was taking action with Europe to protect Muslims in the former #Yugoslavia.
The British were providing military training to forces connected to the very people planning the 9/11 attacks.
By mid-1998 the KLA controlled parts of Kosovo and had armed and organised around 30,000 fighters

Anyone – such as @guyverhofstadt – who vilifies Viktor Orban and the current Hungarian government, must be a dangerous antisemite, and should be condemned; because, as Netanyahu said, Orban is a "true friend of Israel".…
So were the Nazis. But we aren't allowed to talk about that. Because free speech. Democracy. Liberty. Tolerance. You know. Our "Western values".
Now, about this recent Nazi-esque "Cathedral of Light" performance by #Ukraine's US-NATO backed – and #Israeli armed… – openly neo-Nazi Azov Regiment...
