Capability to impose an Indian Ocean blockade on a nuclear armed enemy, has good #Deterrant value as the final conventional deterrent, below the nuclear threshold. The suggestions to shift the battle from Himalayas to the Indian Ocean are however, strategically ill considered
2/xxx Idea would be to #Deter China(by ability to cripple its oil imports & trade) from converting a hot border war into a full fledged war against Indian heartland(including by bringing a substantial part of its US-facing assets into Tibet+Xinjiang). #Deterrence=#NoWar in IO
3/xxx Sucessfull IO deterrence of kind indicated👆🏼, would mean fighting a cold war(not hot) in the littoral States and islands of Indian Ocean, which requires geoeconomics, geopolitics and diplomacy as much as, or more than, naval warfighting.

#NationalSecurityStrategy #Credibility #DualisticTrdPol Bearing costs is the only credible way to signal a change in policy. Higher tariffs & NTBs on imports from China are credible, precisely because they also impose some cost on ourselves. Empty Talk is cheap and non-credible.
2/lad #Ladakh This thread seems credible given the clearer maps: https://t.co/jhJwNGZbFv
2/nss In a #democracy, a #voluntary #private #boycott of #CCPchinaInc organized by #civil #society, can be a powerful instrument, if and when, 100s of 1000s of free people voluntarily bear the higher cost of not buying cheap chinese goods. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow But Aaron, there is a price to pay for pushing fiction, rather than facts: And that is that most of these (fake-) news outlets lost all or at least a lot of credibility and what is #journalism without credibilty?
#TrumpRussia
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 2. I recall a time when #CNN was "first for breaking news", the go-to channel when big news broke (from the passing of Princess Diana to 9/11), since #Election2016 many rightly called it "The Clinton News Network" & I hardly tune in.
#TrumpRussia #Media
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 3. Many great papers made the same mistake: The #NewYorkTimes, with 127 Pulitzer Prizes, suddenly allowed opinion pieces to be written by conspiracy nut #LouiseMensch. You can damage your good reputation with just one lousy piece.

This is a great, thought-provoking speech by #Draghi, on European sovereignty. Though I disagree with some parts, the final part on “rules vs. institutions” is excellent. A thread. ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…
Draghi starts out with the alleged conflict between EU membership and #sovereignty, which is crucial to understand the populism of #Brexit, Le Pen et al. He says: no conflict at all, to the contrary.
“True #sovereignty is reflected not in the power of making laws – as a legal definition would have it – but in the ability to control #outcomes … The ability to make independent decisions does not guarantee countries such control,” says Draghi.
