1) THREAD: What to expect if the #US 🇺🇸withdraws from #NATO? At the Körber #PolicyGame, we discussed this scenario w/ high-level officials and experts in coop w/ @IISS_org - here are the summarized results for the Twitterati community: (have mercy, it’s my first thread!)
2) We wanted to know: How would Europeans react in such a situation?What are interests and red lines? Thus, we invited a 🇫🇷, 🇩🇪, 🇵🇱,🇬🇧, and 🇺🇸 team to play our scenario. Crisis in the #South, Crisis in the #East - were #Europeans able to get their act together w/out the 🇺🇸? 💪 🇪🇺
3) The short answer is: willing yes ❕but able❔ First, most teams focused on reversing a #US withdrawal from #NATO by all possible means, offering the 🇺🇸concessions that were unthinkable before - from #trade to #energy. But what if that doesn’t help? 🤔

#Nukes are in the news a LOT, and it's scary that one man has his finger on the button. But we built them, we can take them apart, and we don’t have to have one person in charge of ending the world. Learn more about #NoFirstUse at bit.ly/nfuqa
A #NoFirstUse (NFU) policy is a commitment by a country to never be the first to use #nuclearweapons in a conflict. Learn more about why a country should adopt a No First Use policy and what you can do about it in our Q&A outrider.org/nuclear-weapon…
You can see how a #BombBlast would impact the place where you live on our website too. We'd love more people to learn about this - Here's a short link you can share with friends and family: Outrider.org/nukes

Here’s a thread that nobody asked for comparing today’s urgent global problems to dim sum.
1/14 Nuclear Weapons v. Xiao Long Bao: Treat with respect or face intense explosion, third degree burns and worse. Experts disagree on how to handle in a never-ending debate. Also, it’s a challenging dish to make. #globalzero #nuclearweapons
2/14 Climate Crisis v. Chicken Feet: Look, you can’t soft sell this. It’s not chicken “change” for chrissakes. It’s the most intimidating item on the table, and there’s no disguising it for what it is. Deniers are vocal. #climatechange #globalwarming

Trumps penchant for #projection may explain his outspoken hostility twd #Montenegro & absurd accusations about them wanting to start #WWIII

What's obvious is #Putin's lust for this #Adriatic port city as it's not his first attempt to acquire it's control

Global Plunder in a Liberalized Post Financial Meltdown World

Case Study: India-US.

This <thread> examines the origin of present day economic crisis in the West & how India is embroiled in that spiral of swindle taking us along with it towards total oblivion. #IndiaForSale
With 90s economic liberalization we set aside sound monetary fundamentals tht stood our financial system in good stead for over 50 years. As these were slowly eroded novel concepts became the norm rather than exception replacing even ways in which inflation indices are calculated
Despite assurances of various FMs on soundness of Indian Economic & Banking Fundamentals India has seen a periodic meltdown of financial markets every 7 years or so. We know now casino style gambling defines our economy & that theres something structurally wrong in our approach.
