#Ukraine: the window of opportunity for the #counteroffensive has opened. Only the Ukrainian General Staff knows when and where it will take place, but it is imminent.

Some notes and points to watch:

- It will be a tough fight against the entrenched RU forces ..

🧵 1/10
.. and #Ukraine will not avoid attrition, but UKR has the necessary capability and a very realistic chance of success.

- The stakes of the upcoming operation are very high. If UKR will fail to achieve the strategic breakthrough, then the war might head into a stalemate.

2/10 Image
- If UKR forces will reach the shore in the south, then it will not only break the RU land bridge to Crimea, severely disrupting RU logistics, but will also reopen the access to the Sea of Azov. It would open a new avenue for operations in the sea and many problems for RU.

"We're now six months into a very tough slog of a war" per @CIA's Burns

"I would not underestimate the capacity or the courage of the #Ukrainians right now..."
"#Putin's bet, I think, is that he's going to be tougher than the #Ukrainians & the #Europeans & the Americans...Europeans facing what's going to be a difficult winter with high energy prices are going to lose resolve" per @CIA's Burns
"#Putin is as wrong about that bet as he was profoundly wrong in his assumptions going back to last February abt the Ukrainian will to resist & the will of the West, of the United States & all of our partners to support the Ukrainians" per @CIA's Burns

No country in the world has benefited as much from the European debacles as the #US. During the Napoleonic wars, the massive mobilization of peasants left the fields deserted and the powers at war were in urgent need of food.
In the US they rushed to fill the gap and spent years
selling everything salable to war-torn #Europe.

Profits were so high that they laid the foundation for prodigious economic growth during the 19th century. There was another indirect benefit: the poverty and famines left by the war forced millions of #Europeans
to emigrate to the #USA, a basically depopulated country, which received some ten million outcasts in just under twenty years.
With the European emigrants came new technologies, new ideas, and a workforce that was abundant, cheap, and willing to do anything. A bargain!!.

Retired #USA Army Colonel Douglas McGregor in The #American Conservative:
Determined to see his proxy war with #Russia through to the end, #JoeBiden is losing the battle for #Ukraine, and his favorite horse, #NATO, is on its last legs.

However, there is something that is falling even faster than #JoeBiden's ratings - these are the economies of the #UnitedStates and #Europe.

When #European bond and stock futures crash and the euro crashes below the #dollar, that's no good, but when #Paris turns off its famous night lights to save energy, it's a sure sign that things are going from bad to worse.

The people who want an independent #JammuKashmir are not people who are hostile to #India and #Pakistan but people who are talking about ending the enmity between India and Pakistan. We want you to make Kashmir a bridge of friendship and both recognize the status of this region⏬
Today, after 75 years, the people of Pakistan are chanting slogans of independence. We are not slaves of anyone. We saw that last week the Prime Minister of Pakistan was chanting slogans of independence.⏬
So if Pakistanis want to be free they can call #Europeans and #Americans #AbsolutelyNot then what is our problem why they want to keep us slaves.

65 years ago today, the foundations of the #EuropeanUnion as we know it were laid.

On this day the governments of France, West- Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands & Luxembourg agreed to set up the European Economic Community by signing the Treaty of Rome. (1/5) 65th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome
In the treaty, the six signatory states declared to:
🟣 create a customs union
🟣 create a single market across member states
🟣 establish some of the institutions we know today: Council, Commission, Parliamentary Assembly (later European Parliament) & Court of Justice. (2/5)
The treaty of Rome was a logical sequel to the European Coal and Steel Community, established in 1951. Robert Schuman 🇪🇺, one of the architects of the #European integration project, hoped that these steps would make war “not only unthinkable but materially impossible”. (3/5)

(1/4) @ZelenskyyUa recorded a video message for Europeans.
The main theses:
• During these 3 weeks of war 115 children were killed. This is the most terrifying war in Europe since the WWII.
#Ukrainians hear the hourslong sounds of air-raid sirens, during which children and elderly people are brought to basements to stay in safety. Ukrainians live, work, try to sleep, receive medical treatment for wounds, give birth and die hearing these sounds.
#Ukraine is fighting against one of the most numerous armies in the world, against missiles, bombs, missile artillery, planes and helicopters, on which russians write ‘to #Berlin’, because they want to go further.

There are 3 main scenarios how this conflict could evolve going forward. Each of those scenario has certain probabilities of it occurring. Lets examine each one of them and their implications to the world in general:
Scenario 1 - (P:60%) #Ukarine & #Russia agree a ceasefire. Ukraine agrees to cede #Crimea and #Donbass to #Russia. #Putin withdraws #RussianArmy. #Europe over a period of time removes #sanctions. In a year, World becomes normal & everyone lives happily. Best outcome possible.
Scenario 2 - (P:30%) The conflict escalates. stalemate ensues. #Putin reaches #Dniper, takes over Kyiv. #Ukraine is bi-furcated in two - #EastUkraine under #Russian control, #WestUkraine aligned with #NATO. #SanctionsRussiaNow continue for long. #Europe consolidates with #USA

⚡️⚡️From Zelensky's speech in the European Parliament

“Each square will be Freedom Square. Nobody will break us. Our desire is for our children to live. It seems to me that this is fair, because yesterday 16 children died. Putin will say that this is some kind of operation.
Dear people, we have a very motivated people, we are fighting for our rights, freedom, for life, and now for survival. We are fighting to be equal members of #Europe.
With us, the #EU will be stronger. We will prove our strength. Prove that you are with us, prove that you are #Europeans, then life will conquer death, and light will conquer darkness. Glory to Ukraine!"

Why should the rest of the world care about a war in Europe? In the view of some commentators too much public attention is directed to the war in #Ukraine. In this🧵I discuss some aspects of the argument. If you are in a hurry, go to Tweet No 12 ff. @fredsinstitutet 1/
While #war involves breaches of rules & pain, such commentators, remind of continued human suffering in places such as Yemen, Syria, Myanmar, Libya, Ethiopia, the DR Congo and many other parts of the world. This is an important critique that needs to be considered seriously. 2/
There is implicit accusation in this thought, that #Europe is in any case Eurocentric and that ‘the west’ only protects its own interests. This is an argument about legal #proportionality and #moral discrepancy. #InternationalLaw 3/

For those who have not yet understood who the Russian military operation is being waged against.
This statement appeared in one of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi channels on February 22, 2022. Image
Ukrainian statement quote:

'Regarding the existence of Putin's servants in #Ukraine - they will not wait for their 'liberators'. The patriots have a steady hand that will not betray when it is necessary.

#EU backs into the diplomatic efforts btw #Russia #US #Nato to de-escalate the military conflict #Ukraine. Long dinner at Kremlin but not my kind of dinner. #Macron discussed his 3 de-escalation plan. #Mythread #MyPhoto 1/1
First proposal of Macron for de-escalation it was of course...#Russia to show a gesture of de-escalation. #Putin reassured to withdraw his troops from #Belarus after their joint military exercises, but said nothing about his troops at the border with #Ukraine. #Macron #NATO 1/2
2nd proposal of Macron is on new security architecture (interesting for EU) and guarantees Moscow wants from Nato and the US: mutual limitation of military deployments, transparency, a limitation to short/intermediate-range missile deployments. 1/3

We Need To Protect #Türkiye From Suffering The Same Fate As #Andalusia !

Modern history represents how the #Secularist & #Capitalist #Europe was established while Islam & #IslamicCivilization was grounded to a halt .
After centuries of painful experiences Europe finally realized that it would establish itself on the stage of history unless it shattered the world-guiding global siege of Islamic civilization .

.@JoeBiden wants to make America "the leader for good in the world." It's going to be a tall order as divisive policies have shaken the nation's foundations. #CapitolRiot epitomized America's fragility at a time of extreme polarization. #CGTNFirstVoice #Inauguration2021
Despite being considered as leaving in disgrace, #DonaldTrump is still popular in his party. A post #CapitolRiot poll shows Trump still retains 87% of Republicans' approval with 43% support among voters overall post-second-#Impeachment. #Inauguration2021
Degradation of facts and truths has led to more than 400,000 #COVID19 deaths in #America. Conspiracies, promoted by extreme factions in society as well as elements in the Trump administration and sometimes even Trump himself, poisoned public opinion. #Inauguration2021

After the #AgrimaJoshua incident, most of my #NorthIndian friends (some are left-leaning) mocked me for criticising her & asked me what’s the big deal in addressing him as ‘Shivaji’.

This #Thread is for all of them who don’t know much about #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj.

Around 230 BCE, #Maharashtra came under the rule of the #Satvahana dynasty for 400 years.

It was also ruled by the Western Satraps, the #Guptas, Gurjaras-Pratiharas, Vatakas, Kadambas, Chalukyas, #Rashtrakutas and the Western #Chalukyas before finally, the #Yadava Rule.

In short, #Maharashtra was ruled by #Hindu Kings.

Unfortunately, in the early 14th century, the Yadava Dynasty was overthrown by the Islamic Invader #AlauddinKhilji, who was then, the Sultan of #Delhi. This marked the beginning of #Islamic Rule in Maharashtra.

Thread: #XR isnt about climate

Stuart Basden Co-founder Extinction Rebellion says XR not about Climate (that's just a symptom of a toxic system that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life)"

XR is about #decolonialism…
XR about #decolonialism: Basden says "how European ‘civilisation’ spread around the globe thru cruelty & violence over the last 600 years of colonialism, where the roots of the infections go much further back"
Basden #XR: "#Europeans spread their toxicity around the world, they brought torture, genocide, carnage & suffering to the ends of the earth. Their cultural myths justified the horrors, idea that indigenous people were animals (not humans)"

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? 🤔
