Trump's NatSec Strategy #NSS challenges the myths of the NatSec/foreign policy establishment's Wilsonian progressives -- myths based on flawed premises generating failed policies. Its Kirkpatrickian core would make the US stronger and more secure. THREAD👇thefederalist.com/2018/01/26/3-c…
The pol establishment is aghast over Trump's brash style, lack of conventionality and political incorrectness -- with its over-the-top revulsion serving as a form of virtue-signaling. On NatSec/foreign policy, the difference is truly substantive. thefederalist.com/2018/01/26/3-c…
Trump's National Security Strategy #NSS challenges the very premises of the establishment's prevailing progressive Wilsonian internationalist orthodoxy. Its "principled realism" rejects the elite worldview/challenges elite credentials, standing, influence thefederalist.com/2018/01/26/3-c…

<Thread> Some thoughts on Pakistan in President Trump's National Security Strategy:

- The updated US #NSS is same old: pressure Pakistan, carrots & sticks, etc. This has stopped working for a long time and it won't start working now.
- America has failed in Afghanistan to achieve its official objectives (forget about unofficial objectives for now). US now must blame Pakistan to save face. People are asking: how did ISKP + dozens of other groups pop up in AFG right under nose of US & NATO? #NSS
- Pakistan will likely stay committed to its current position regardless of how much pressure is applied by US, which let's face it, won't be much since Pakistan still holds important cards in Afghanistan. There's no way more pressure will change anything.
