#telecommunications #infrastructure ownership is something we're going to have to somehow find a nice balance in, particularly for #submarinecables, our primary means of trans-oceanic digital communications. 🧵1/
On the one hand, it's great for #DigitalDevelopment and #digital #connectivity that more telco infra is going in. But infrastructure is expensive... 2/
So some telcos want content providers (big tech like Facebook and Google) to share the cost, which makes sense if content makes up a big chunk of the internet traffic. 🗞️🔗👉Platform content makes up 55% of internet traffic in #France #Italy #Spain. 3/…

Brexit was the single best strategy for the UK to pursue in order to safeguard everyday Briton’s long-term national security. Bi-lateral trade and investment deals are easier to negotiate, execute, and monitor. In multi-lateral deals, one is only as strong as their weakest 1/6
link. Just look at the failures of the so-called EU.Brexit has nothing to do with racism. It’s the foundation for a proper national security policy. It’s not anti-immigrant. Once the borders are secure, a diverse and inclusive immigration policy will be implemented. Today,2/6
Brexit naysayers are blaming the administration for lower tax revenues and a declining business climate…in an environment where ill-conceived energy policy, Putin’s massacre of Ukraine, inflation caused by aggressive monetary printing, and a general European (and global) 3/6

📢 MPs debate the #NationalSecurity Bill today. @CampaignFoI & @a19right2info have serious concerns about the implications of the Bill for journalists and those working for civil society organisations who receive some funding from foreign governments.
#FOI #officialsecrets
The publication of leaked information which prejudices the UK’s interests would be an offence with a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The identical act by someone without foreign government funding might not be an offence at all.
CSOs based in, or with a presence in the UK, which have received foreign governments for their int'l work include: @ActionAidUK, @Anti_Slavery, @article19org, @ClientEarth, @Global_Witness, @IndexCensorship, @mediadefence, @OCCRP, @privacyint, @ReprieveUK, @TransparencyUK.

1/n #NationalSecurity #ArmedForcesAndGeopolitics Today every establishment of Armed Forces should be War Gaming 'Snake Island' and applying the situation created by Russia to our isolated posts. Are we doing it? Are Cadets in Training Academies being taught how to analyse it?
2/n #NationalSecurity #ArmedForcesAndGeopolitics Episode 1 - Armed Forces and Geopolitics - THE BIG VOID Col Sanjay Pande and Prof. Sonali Chitalkar

THE BIG VOID is all about the gap in national security because of 'turfs'.
3/n #NationalSecurity #ArmedForcesAndGeopolitics
Turfs? Military that has no geopolitical training as a culture from roots (cadet training)? or a Foreign Service that has no military knowledge? or the Administrative Service that presides over both and nose drags the Executive?

As tonight’s unfolding #Ukraine tragedy underscores only too starkly—

—the @POTUS @JoeBiden Administration MUST PRESERVE (extended)#DETERRENCE 100% in the forthcoming #Nuclear Posture Review/#NPR.

Must avoid not only “#NoFirstUse/#NFU”—BUT ALSO “#SolePurpose”—road to perdition!
Virtue signaling is no substitute for #deterrence signaling!

The #NPR must avoid not only widely-dismissed “#NoFirstUse” (#NFU) language, but also the dangerous concept of “#SolePurpose.”

Text/graphics from @DeptofDefense 2021 #China #Military Power Report show key reasons why. ImageImageImageImage
#SolePurpose” = unacceptably erosive/destabilizing, not a no-or-low-cost #VirtueSignaling sop to #ArmsControl idealism.

Would reduce credibility/#deterrent of @POTUS’s potential counters to massive #conventional offensives by #Russia/#China.

Tragic reminder tonight in #Ukraine ImageImageImage

Mercenaries & Defence Contractors Are as #Canadian as Maple Syrup

Let me introduce you to Predator Security Defense™️

@JustinTrudeau knows these guys all to well Amongst others, Like #Academi / #blackwater .. He’s used them in his security detail in Canada and overseas.

These guys are the best of the best.

Security or paid mercenaries? 🤔

Let’s see what services the predators have to offer
Their employees 👉 Prior military combat veterans, US Special Programs (Special forces, navy seals) or Tactical Law Enforcement (Swat).

Our operators are highly trained counter terrorism expert across the entire spectrum, as good as any and better than most.

The article sheds light on the #traceability challenges in #India, as identified in the report, which could potentially create vulnerabilities in modern #devices, #communication architecture and #cybersecurity, that can be exploited by bad actors.….
The importance of #endtoendencryption (#E2EE) is in ensuring #InformationalPrivacy, #safety & #security of the #citizens; and, the #nationalsecurity of the State. Here are the key recommendations of the report - Analysing National Security Implications of Weakening #Encryption. Image

Last few months, had opportunity interview top experts climate change, 1st episode out today @FPRI John @Conger477 @CntrClimSec @CSRisks provides insights into how #climatechange will shape DoD thinking on #nationalsecurity Check it out and subscribe…
Climate change has clearly become a national security issue with dynamic changes creating major uncertainty for countries, companies and citizens. I believe climate change most important issue today, a topic I'm personally interested in but know little about.
This was a chance for me to learn from the best working on the #ClimateCrisis as I believe much of status quo thinking & resulting foreign policy talk in DC badly out of bounds of the coming reality.

How does the #Kremlin and the #Putin inner circle launder money? Short answer: just like the rest of us. #Russia uses the Western financial world as an element of its own power. But it's worth reviewing why this is before we cheer on the #sanctions brigade in the US and UK. A 🧵
Deep and internationalized #capital #markets are an element of Western power. By drawing global finance to #NewYork or #London, we make ourselves indispensable to global trade and investment. Use our #Dollar anywhere if you abide by its rules. This is why the yuan cannot compete.
The same market liberalization that has led to global prosperity with the US and the West at its center. But the same rules that make it easy to open your family business apply to anyone opening a "family business." You selling cookies and the Russians sell state assets.

1/10 The recently released @HBO documentary “The Forever Prisoner” ignores the ongoing brutal harms against Abu Zubaydah, the focus of the documentary, and all victims of the “War on Terror.”
2/10 The shortcomings of filmmaker Alex Gibney’s documentary remind us that justice delayed is justice denied and acknowledging harm should be a goal worth pursuing in and of itself.
3/10 Ultimately, Gibney’s film falls short of this goal.

Read my big picture takeaways & recommendations for @POTUS/@SecDef @19_forty_five!

Implications for #NationalSecurity Strategy, #Nuclear Posture Review.
#Pentagon's #China #Military Power Report is a 173-page treasure trove!

After my all-nighter 6-page summary——I'm still finding food for thought...

Here are some new reflections from my interview w/ @GrecianFormula @19_forty_five:… Image
CMPR's biggest revelation? Most would say #nuclear #weapons buildup:

#PRC may have up to 700 deliverable #nuke warheads by 2027, of which roughly 200 warheads will be on land-based #ICBMs capable of threatening US; & at least 1,000 nuke warheads by 2030.…

The expansion of our central bank’s balance sheet is a direct result of the virus (released from Wuhan Institute of Virology) that China knowingly propagated around the world. China’s economy has a closed capital account and is much weaker than the US in its structure. 1/3
The world doesn’t trust China or it’s currency…therefore China must use US dollars to transact with its global trading partners. Given the ‘official’ belligerence of people like @HuXijin_GT..coupled with their militaristic aggressiveness towards Taiwan 🇹🇼 , it’s time 2/3
The 🇺🇸 openly discusses removing China from the SWIFT system by sanctioning their SOE and JSB banks. At some point in time, our economic war gloves will come off and China will be dead in the water without a shot being fired. #China #TheChinese #NationalSecurity @AmbQinGang

Given that the reporting restriction is lifted, I will detail the bail application proceeding that spans from ystd to this morning re the case of 5 #HKAlliance ex leaders charged for refusing to submit info demanded by #nationalsecurity police in this #thread.
The most significant point comes first, the play of bail under #NSL has evolved just now from blanket denial to undeniable bail with condition restricting the defendant's speech.

This morning, #NSL magistrate Peter Law granted bail to all 5 defendants in the case despite ...
...lack of applications from D3 Simon Leung and D4 Chan To-wai with the usual bail conditions (cash, surety, reporting requirements, deposit of travel docs etc) and an additional #NSL condition imposed by the prosecution.

1/ This is a thread on concerns I have with #ESG investing and the role of #markets in a functional, #capitalist #democracy. Warning: it’s long and nothing in here is necessarily original on its own, but I wanted to tie together some thoughts.
2/ At the outset, I want to make clear that the following is my analysis, not my firm’s. If ESG factors matter to you, by all means invest accordingly. I also care about environmental, social and governance issues. My guess is almost everyone does to varying degrees.
3/ Additionally, over the last 5+ years I have invested in firms benefitting from cost declines in renewable power, advised clients to do so and at one point was trying to raise an energy transition fund.
