Tonight begins my new course @ElliottSchoolGW: “Understanding U.S. Special Operations”

In it, we’ll learn what special ops/#SOF are & how these differ from conventional ops/forces; how US SOF came to be; how they’ve been used over time; & what major issues they face today. 1/n
If you want to follow along at home, I’ll be posting key topics & readings in this THREAD.

Week 1 is course overview & class intros, so while you wait for substance, you can buy our main text (Oppose Any Foe by @MarkMoyar) & watch this cool #SOF vid😎 2/n
Week 2/We baselined knowledge on definitions of #SOF & special ops, core activities of US SOF & @USSOCOM, & the organizational structure of the US SOF enterprise. BL: US SOF are far more than the popular portrayals of them in movies & video games. 3/n

In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

Most Covid-19 #Vietnam discussions hv understandably focused on epicenter Saigon. But nearby Binh Duong province, crucial to Vietnam's export-dependent economy & the global supply chain is struggling to maintain manufacturing operation. My latest. 1/ scmp.com/week-asia/heal…
The gov allows factories in industrial zones to stay open if they provided on-site accommodation or direct transport for staff, but a senior director at a company which outsources to global brands told me the costs to fulfill these conditions are huge. 2/ scmp.com/week-asia/heal…
Binh Duong brings home big bucks. It was Vietnam's 2020 3rd biggest exporter, selling goods worth >US$27 bln. It is the country's second largest accumulated FDI beneficiary (USS36.8 bln) after Saigon. 3/ scmp.com/week-asia/heal…

Interesting: several #ISKP commanders were liquidated soon after the #Taliban broke open the prison in Kunar. Some of these commanders had travelled to #IS Centre in Iraq/Syria.
So the #Biden administration really is preparing to say #Americans left behind in #Afghanistan wanted to be left there or are at fault for being left there.

US Vice President Kamala Harris and Vietnam's Vice President Vo Thi Anh Xuan meet in the Gold Room of the Presidential Palace in Hanoi.

The visit is the first to Vietnam by a sitting US vice president
Vice President Kamala Harris visits Vietnam to stress US commitment to Asia.

Critics slam the trip as tone-deaf given the parallels with the superpower's evacuations from Saigon and Kabul

Departure of @VP from #Singapore to #Vietnam was delayed due to an apparent concern about #HavanaSyndrome, according to the US Embassy in Hanoi.
“This has nothing to do with the vice president’s health,” @SymoneSanders46 told reporters on Air Force 2 en route #Vietnam.

#Biden blamed the #Afghans for the US not evacuating those Afghans who were in danger - said they caused the delay - but this is a lie, one of many in yesterday's speech: Biden had been told for weeks by the military he needed to act to withdraw safely, and *he* delayed.
Perfect summation: there are thousands of Afghans who have been trying for months to leave, and the Biden people refused to start the process - a decision Biden now blames on the Afghans, as he does the collapse of a military whose demise he engineered
As @mattczeller of @n1leftbehind makes clear in the above clip: the work of finding the names of the Afghans who needed to be gotten out of the country if we were going to abandon it had been done and that information given to Biden, who chose not to act until it was too late.

The #US has lost control of the airport in Kabul because desperate people flooded the airfield to try to avoid being abandoned to the Taliban by the US. #Afghanistan
The messaging from this administration and its surrogates would be laughable if it wasn't being used to kill thousands of people and rebirth a jihadist regime that threatens us all
Amrullah Saleh, whatever else we have to say about him, consistently tried to get the world to understand that what was happening in his country was a foreign attack from #Pakistan. And he has remained in #Afghanistan, incidentally, whether that is wise

#Saigon 1975, #Kabul 2021? - Es ist dieses ikonenhafte Foto, das das Ende des #Vietnam-Krieges und den Abzug der US-Truppen symbolisiert. Angesichts der dramatischen Situation in #Afghanistan wird das Bild derzeit immer wieder verbreitet. Was aber zeigt es? Ein Thread ⬇️
Das Foto wurde am Nachmittag des 29. April 1975 gemacht, einen Tag bevor die nordvietnamesische Armee Saigon einnahm. Der Fotograf war der Niederländer Hubert van Es, geboren 1941 in Hilversum, der damals für die United Press International (UPI) in #Vietnam gearbeitet hat.
Oft wird fälschlicherweise behauptet, die Aufnahme würde die US-Botschaft in Saigon zeigen. Tatsächlich aber fotografierte Van Es an jenem Tag ein Gebäude in der 22 Gia Long Street , das „Pittman Apartments“, ein damaliger Stützpunkt der #CIA: google.com/maps/place/22+…

The #Pakistan #Army learned the lessons from the #Vietnam war and carefully controlled the Western #narrative and the level of aggression in Afghanistan, the #US military apparently didn't, and lived in an imaginary wonderland created by its friends in Pakistan!
2/usa #BeAware: Unless #US foreign policy experts learn the correct lessons from the US post-war experience in the Indian sub-continent (& Asia more generally), they cannot be trusted to give sensible advise on S Asia to the US congress and US govt
3/usa This is solid competition for #CCP🤡, but #PRC will still win hands down! 🤓

#IndiaChinaFaceOff : Ladakh standoff exposed #PLA's weaknesses, made #China rejig security narrative

The Galwan incident was the first taste of combat—though without firearms—that it had with an actual enemy after getting a bloody nose in #Vietnam in 1979
theweek.in/theweek/cover/…
2/ “The PLA has been facing a challenge of absence of combat experience and a lack of realistic training. It has been widely accepted even within the Chinese establishment,” said Lieutenant General (retd) D.S. Hooda, former northern Army commander.
3/ Battlefield blood is nothing new for the Indian Army. It has been bleeding in combat every day for the past 3 decades in counter-insurgency operations in Kashmir & had also fought a limited conventional war in Kargil, complete with the use of airpower, two decades ago.
