#SCOSummit2022 #SCO the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation compises 9 member countries. India and Pakistan joined up finally in 2017, and Iran might be admitted in 2022.
Between them they account for much of the world's contradictions. economist.com/the-economist-…
Russia looks to it because it is a pariah elsewhere. China as the World's Number 2 power in terms of econ and military might comes to it wielding the biggest clout. India and Pakistan admitted together in 2017 have been and are at loggerheads for as long as theyve been UN Members

-Now look at the troops balance
-#India #Japan #SouthKorea encircle #China with external help from #USA & #Australia

जापान के पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री शिंजो आबे पर जानलेवा हमला हुआ है. एक अज्ञात आदमी ने उन्हें दो गोलियाँ मारी हैं,जिसके बाद वो collapse हो गए...उसके बाद उन्हें दिल का दौरा भी पड़ गया, और फिलहाल वो किसी भी तरह के vital sign नहीं दिखा रहे.

हत्यारा जो एक Self Defence ग्रुप का सदस्य रह चुका है, उसने 3D प्रिंटिंग की मदद से एक customized Double Barrell वाली Shotgun बनायी...
जो एक कैमरे जैसी दिख रही थी.. शायद यही कारण था कि वो बिना किसी रोक टोक इतने नजदीक पहुंच कर गोली चला पाया...

यह एक बहुत बड़ा security threat है...
... और दुनिया भर के महत्वपूर्ण नेता और Celebrities की सुरक्षा को अब नये तरीके से redesign करना पड़ेगा. ऐसे घर में ही खतरनाक हथियार बनाने की क्षमता होने से सुरक्षा के लिए बहुत बड़ा खतरा उत्पन्न हो गया है...

"The South China Sea is fast becoming a Chinese lake, given the density of PLAAF and PLAN military bases created within its waters."
In the case of “Mao’s heir” Xi, although almost all such activity remains hidden from the outside world, criticism of the functioning of the Office of the General Secretary (OGS) has been growing inside the higher ranks of the CCP.
More than the party secretariat or the civilian side of the central government, it is the military that has the most influence in the thinking of the present 🇨🇳 CCP General Secretary.

#DPRK missile fired early Wednesday, according to #ROK JCS.
Initial indications are that a ballistic missile was fired by the #DPRK toward its east coast. The apparent test launch comes hours after @POTUS left #Japan where he met with #Quad leaders.

In this article published 6 years ago, @OliverDTurner and I argue that the American discourses of 'virtue' and 'power', shared by most Americans, are productive of the subjectivity of neoconservatism, which, despite its widely abhorred manifestation in the Bush Doctrine, is thus
more normatively appealing and more enduring than commonly understood. In fact, it could be argued that there has been a quiet neocon-ization of the West over the past two decades, with many Western countries appropriating American 'virtue' and identifying with US power.
The fact that no one talks about neoconservatism anymore today is not because it's gone, but because it's gone capillary. The deep faith in US-led virtue and power is such that the neoconservative motto of 'moral clarity' and 'military strength' has replaced good old-fashioned

This very interesting @France24 #F24Debate show was just broadcast live here in France and provides a fascinating insight into just how much of a global energy and financial crisis the #RussiaUkraineWar has now become.
This @StateDept briefing has just finished. First substantive questions (not addressing the readout address in international response specifically #Quad member India (from @apdiplowriter) and the US's UAE and Saudi allies (@AndreaMitchell of @CNN)
. @StateDeptSpox does his best to remain bullish on Russian isolation, but it is far from convincing. No doubt there will be more calls from sanction hawk Senators & Representatives for secondary sanctions.

Here's the UNGA vote on condemning Russia. A few thoughts.
1/ #Syria. No shocker how they voted. But the remaining Russian forces there are about to be cut off from...everything. #Turkey has already closed the Turkish Straits to Russian ships. Wanna kill some Russians without going to Ukraine? Here's your opportunity.
2/ #Mongolia abstained. While not technically a Russian satellite, they remain under heavy Russian influence. Arguably heavier than during the Soviet period. Really cheeses off the Chinese.

The #ASEAN disunity over AUKUS

The #ASEAN sees #aukus pact increases geopolitical risks in the region, as #aukus is aimed at countering rising Chinese belligerence.
The rise of partnerships in the region, which are not ASEAN-centric causes them concern.

orfonline.org/expert-speak/t…
2/ How have various #ASEAN countries reacted to #aukus ?

They've not reacted in unison. Each member expressed its own views. The divergence in opinion was quite apparent.
Brunei did not speak about it.
Indonesia expressed caution with AUKUS.
Malaysia appears astonished. Image
3/ #Vietnam is more open to #aukus “All countries strive for the same goal of peace, stability, cooperation, and development” & nuclear power can be harnessed for development.

The #Philippines is more welcoming of the #aukus though President #Duterte sounded contradictory. Image

The comparisons being made between #AUKUS n the India US civil nuclear deal (#IUSCND) of 2005-08 are not warranted just because nonproliferation questions apply to both.

But both stink.

Love India #AUKUS people but hate their governments. Be warned.

Quick read thread 1/20
#IUSCND was civil cooperation between non allies. #AUKUS is a pact between hardcore military partners. The object n purposes of the two are entirely different.

Comparing the 2 is like comparing apples n oranges.
2/20
Whatever the stated goals, the US gained a vassal state like India because of the #IUSCND. India got its ego pumped but has significantly lost its integrity as a serious player in international relations.
