Revealing spotlight on #China's emerging #PLA #Naval facility in #Ream, #Cambodia!

Glad to support @nakashimae & @catecadell's exposé @WashPost.

This will be hot topic at #SLD22 where I'm honored to be a delegate. Let's see what officials say! @IISS_org

Ships adding up—

"#China’s #navy is already the world’s largest by #s of vessels. The @USNavy has 297 battle-force ships..according to @CRS4Congress, while China has 355 & is projected to have 460 by 2030, according to last year’s @DeptofDefense report."

washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
But, said Andrew Erickson, research director of the @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute @NavalWarCollege, “as impressive as those numbers are, without a significant network of robust overseas facilities, their ability to use them falls off rapidly w distance from China.” #Ream #Base

I just skimmed the "The almanack of naval ravikant" book.

Here are the TOP 5 LESSONS I learned from the book.

A #thread 🧵

👉 Seek Wealth, Not Money or Status.👈

So, What is Wealth? Wealth is an asset that you earn while you sleep. Wealth can be a business, investing in stocks, software that serves other users/customers while you are sleeping, or even a house that you rented out.

🧵I’m both heartened and worried after just coming back from #Kyiv 🇺🇦, where @gmfus @ua_boell delegation, which I had a honor to lead, meet with key government officials, opposition, think tanks, and civil society. Here are few observations from the past days 👇
There is ZERO desire among Ukrainians to give in to Russian demands. They are determined and defiant. I don’t know what Putin is thinking, but the Ukrainian people are not going to accept a Moscow puppet government in Kyiv. If Putin’s decide to attack, Ukraine will make him pay.
Ukraine will fight, if need be. They don’t expect the West to do it for them - but they rightly expect help - both politically and when it comes to #weapons. Frustration with the #West in #Kyiv varies from moderate to extremely high.

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”

amazon.com/China-Goes-Sea…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

Aprovecho que se habla de la #Marina #Naval para poner un caso ejemplar de cómo participa el PODER en #Historia Oficial:
MIGUEL GRAU, nuestro personaje del milenio y máximo héroe, fue cuestionado varias veces, incluso procesado por "traición a la patria".
#HiloConHistoria 🧵 Image
Antes:
-No es revisionismo. Todo esto está documentado y escrito. No aporto nada nuevo. Mas comparto una reflexión.
-Nada de esto le resta el reconocimiento ganado por sus acciones en la Guerra con Chile. Siempre ha tenido mi admiración.
Ideas fuerza:
-La figura del héroe es una construcción. Actúan diversos agentes que legitiman acciones y deciden olvidar otros.
-La #Historia es también un campo de batalla donde se disputa el poder de nombrar, el poder de decidir qué actos son o no difundidos.

The secret #war on oil smuggling to fund Hezbollah
Part 2 - (11 Tweets)
——————————————-
And back to the oil tankers - if indeed #Israel hit these tankers, then it is likely that the marine force & the special units, above and below the surface of the water, worked overtime. 1/11
But no #Iranian ship sank or caught fire among the damaged ships, acc to @WSJ. The Iranians said nothing, nor did they admit that their ship had been hit. Neither Israel nor the Americans until yesterday.
"No one saw, no one heard, were there people of silence here". 2/11
🇮🇱Israel has quite a few, varied and creative ways to harm the smuggling of #Iranian oil into #Syria without causing noise & commotion. It can also be assumed that the cut-off of funding for Hezbollah's #terrorism, & especially for Hezbollah's #missile accuracy and... 3/11

Just listening to #naval almost always awakens the senses of your #thirdeye. Here are some takeaways from his recent clubhouse visit, hope you don't mind @Naval. I prepared this for personal reflection, but I believe there are others out there who will benefit as well.
- We have a right to our labor, but not to the fruits of our labor - quoted Bhagavad Gita
- Figure out what you are serious about in your pursuit
- The most important question in life, what am I here for?
- Reject being the slavery of calendars/holidays/new year resolutions/groups/ herd mentality
- True knowledge only comes from doing the work
- Always try and do your best work, and don't get too attached or distracted by the results
- Stop procrastinating

Our globally deployed naval forces interact w/ #Chinese & #Russian #warships & #aircraft daily."
"We witness firsthand their increasing sophistication and growing aggressiveness. ... The People’s Republic of #China represents the most pressing, long-term strategic threat."

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

#Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps #IRGC is carrying out large-scale #naval exercises near the Strait of #Hormuz using their floating US #carrier mockup, Iranian-built #UAV drones and a military satellite just launched 22 April presstv.com/Detail/2020/07…
The Payambar-e A’zam (The Great Prophet) 14 exercises are giving us great looks at the unpowered mockup, much smaller than The Real Thing. IRGC speedboats are seen running circles around the barge, pushed by a tugboat at the stern ImageImageImageImage
The IRGC are using home-built #UAV unmanned aerial vehicles and fast speedboats armed with guns and rockets. Troops drop on the mock flattop from helicopters, and at least one parachuted in past fake F-18F Super Hornet fighters - which even featured Modex numbers on the nose ImageImageImageImage

I'm listening to @naval's Joe Rogan podcast and will be sharing key insights from the podcast under in this thread.
1. Every human is capable of excelling in multitude of areas, but most of us are summarized/labelled by limited tags.

You have one life, do everything you can.

"Specialization is for the insects"

#naval #joerogan
2. People stick to one thing because its difficult to start over, especially as one gets older.

To start over, one should willing to be a fool and have a beginner's mindset, because starting over might be the best option one may have at some point in life

Wait ... WT actual F! @routledgebooks is republishing Augustus Buell's biography of John Paul Jones? Any #naval #historian who has published with them should be ashamed and embarrassed. amzn.to/2DBYZcT
So, the story of Augustus Buell...historical fabricator & con artist. Seeing an opportunity to make some bank on a biography of "the Father of the American Navy," AB set out to write his bio but couldn't find the sources he wanted to make his story exciting...so he made them up.
He created whole sources, including a sailors journal that never existed, he wrote whole letters that he then faked JPJ's signature on. If he thought something needed punched up in the history, to make it exciting, he would not only just make it up, he would then fake a source.

hearing—"#China's Worldwide #Military Expansion" is a dramatic bellwether of growing concerns in Washington & beyond.

Now online—hard-hitting arguments + many data points, some deeply-analyzed yet hard to find elsewhere in public domain:

CAPT Jim Fanell, USN Ret, former @USPacificFleet N2:

"today, the PLA Navy consists of over 330 surface ships & 66 submarines, nearly 400 combatants. As of 4 May 2018, the @USNavy consists of 283 battle force ships: 211 surface ships and 72 submarines."

"By 2030, it is estimated [by Fanell & @SCheneyPeters in their chapter in @NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime Studies Institute's Chinese Naval Shipbuilding volume amazon.com/Chinese-Naval-… @USNIBooks that] the PLANavy will consist of some 550 ships: 450 surface ships & 99 submarines."
