5 years ago, the then Secretary of State John Kerry before heading to Venezuela on Aug 14, 2015 in an interview with @oppenheimera stated that "the United States & Cuba are talking about ways to solve the Venezuelan crisis." cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2020/01/undere… #Cuba #Russia #Venezuela 2/21
The situation in Venezuela continued to worsen, and the presence of the Castro regime only served to aggravate the situation in the South American country. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2020/01/undere… #Cuba #Russia #Venezuela 3/21

Thread: This ⁦@FareedZakaria⁩ piece is worth reading, particularly as we seem to be observing what could be termed the push-back of the “China lobby”. I will explain: foreignaffairs.com/articles/china…
First, his primary trick - like Zoellicks - is to make this the US’ problem, pandering to US self-critical sensibilities. After saying ‘yes, I know the PRC isn’t great in a few areas’, he dismisses the import or impact of the PRC’s challenging behavior or justifies it.
Second, he accurately portrays the traditional Western policy as hedging, but justifies it by describing the PRC as a “rogue regime” pre-Nixon/Mao and noting positive behavior today. But he fails to note is Xi’s reach back to that era, personality cult and United Front activity..

For the past week, #Iraq has been burning in the flames of the protests of a disgruntled population over the poor state of people's livelihoods. A key #slogan in the nationwide popular uprising since Oct 1 has been the call to expel #Iran's regime and its agents from Iraq.

On Sept 20, 2019,#AliKhamenei's representative in #Mashhad said: "Today #Iran is not limited by its borders. Today #Iraq's Hashd Al-Shaabi is Iran. #Lebanese Hezbollah is Iran. #Yemen's Houthi militia is Iran. The #Vatani front in #Syria is Iran. #Palestine's #HAMAS is Iran."

The #diplomatic cover for the activities of #Quds Force officers and #MOIS agents has given the regime the ability to use #Iraq as a serious base for meddling in other regional countries, including #Syria, #Lebanon, #SaudiArabia, #Jordan, and #Turkey.

Residents of #Lordegan county, Charmahal & Bakhtiari Province in southern #Iran, held a rally on Saturday, October 5, protesting regime authorities’ negligence in using infected syringes that led to nearly 300 residents being infected with the #HIV virus. #NoImpunity4Mullahs

While the #Iranian regime spends billions of dollars on terrorism and warfare in #Syria, #Lebanon, and #Yemen, it uses a common syringe to check blood tests that have caused hundreds of people to contract AIDS. #NoImpunity4Mullahs #BlacklistRouhani @ForeignOffice

Western governments must end their policy of #appeasement with the regime and support and be on side of the #Iranian people for #Iranregimechange.

#Appeasement👇🏽is easy & cheap in short run,but very costly in long run. Hard #Deterrence is most cost-effective #NationalSecurityPolicy. But it has to be credible in the eyes of aggressive enemy. Credibility is demonstrated by willingness to bear costs: lnkd.in/eGF4VsT
2/ There is >50 years of theory (starting with Thomas Schelling's Strategy of Conflict en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Sc… )& empirical evidence relating to this👆🏽 Defence strategists & military experts, play these theories out in #WarGames, constrained & guided by the empirical evidence!
3/ In contrast, our public debates on foreign policy focus on (1) Logical consistence of every sentence & action of our own govt (not of our enemies), (2) On the morality of our foreign policy & national security actions viz those hostile to us. 🧐

1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

@amishra77 @virsanghvi This was the strategy of the outliers for a long time:
1) Moghuls became Indians and Indians became Kafirs
2) Nehru-Khan-Maino became Gandhi and Indians became fools
3)Muslims became Kashmiris and #KashmiriPandits became refugees

@indiantweeter
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 4) Bangladeshis became #Bengalis and Bengalis couldn't celebrate #DurgaPuja in soon to be #WestBangladesh
5) Those who are intolerant of #Hindus became #Secular and the real seculars became #Sanghi terrorists
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 6) The #Maoists and #UrbanNaxals became Intellectuals and the Intellectuals became #Bakhts
7) Terrorists became 'poor-sons-of-headmasters' who killed/beheaded army men and the army became human rights violators who used pellet guns on these peaceful terrorists. @adgpi
