THREAD | Deterrence | Tactical Nuclear Weapons.

#یوم_تکبیر
° The little boy nuclear bomb produced 15 kilo tonnes of blast yield.

° Tsar Bomba, the most powerful thermonuclear weapon in history, produced 50,000 kilo tonnes of blast yield.

° Tsar Bomba was specifically meant to obliterate civilian cities.
° Before the advent of ICBMs, bomber aircraft such as B-52, Tu-95 were developed to carry the nuclear bombs.

° Development of ICBMs made bomber aircraft redundant as nukes could be made smaller, thus extending the range of ICBMs.

#Nehru died this day 56yrs ago
A week earlier he'd sent #SheikhAbdullah to Karachi to meet/negotiate with the #Pakistani military dictator #AyubKhan
Sheikh rushed back upon Nehru's death
The three men ever shared what was cooking
Such hush-hush freelancing continues over #Kashmir
#Nehru indeed is the original sinner in our headache over #Kashmir
But the mindset to deal with this headache, across govts parties and leaders has remained Nehruvian:
Integration through soft separatism
A secular facade to reward bigotry
Hand over democracy to rank autocrats
#Nehru the interim PM did not defend J&K against the #Pakistani attack till the #Maharaja appointed #Sheikh
He let Sheikh rob the elections to stuff his own men in the Constituent Assembly of J&K
All others' nominations were cancelled to 'elect' unopposed 73 NC members out of 75.

Bill introduced in #US Congress ( Lok Sabha) to declare the #USA will consider #Tibet as a free independent nation separate from #China . Interesting to note the proposal has come from a Republican Congressman @RepScottPerry who is a former @USArmy Brigadier General.
If & when this passes will open up assistance funding & support for the #Tibetans in exile in #India & elsewhere.
Will also open up routes for the #USA to sanction #China & any other nation ( #Pakistan ) that uses an illegal #CPEC /route passing through occupied #Tibet.
As I've said on a different fora earlier #India is key to helping rebuild #Tibet as a free nation for #Tibetans . I believe the @PMOIndia would've already started working on modalities with HH the @DalaiLama & the Govt of #Tibet in exile at Dharamshala & Bylakuppe.

THREAD:

#China-#India stand-off at Laddakh & consequences 4 #Pakistan

What I think of new tension?

🇨🇳’s move into #Laddakh & establishing a hold over Galwan river valley comes after 🇮🇳 coerced Nepal by encroaching it’s border territory & reviving Kalapani dispute.

1/
China says that #India actually encroached in its territory. The similar holding over of river valley led to 1962 war between India and China.

What strategic compulsion weighed in behind the Chinese move?

A) What immediate reasons?

2/
1. 🇮🇳 ’s aggressive behaviour re Nepal reviving Kalapani dispute, indirectly implicated 🇨🇳-es interest.

2. Post Aug 5 annexation of IOK w/ 🇮🇳-n intention 2 turn Laddakh into union territory rattled 🇨🇳 that 🇮🇳 is materially changing status of th region contested by🇨🇳& 🇵🇰.

Is #India plotting a narrative about #China , taking advantage of the current #coronavirus pandemic ? Insinuating anger in Indian public abt chinese influence in #Nepal , terrorist attacks in #Kashmir & poking China in border area - Is #Modi diverting public from covid failure?
These shaping of narratives does not look coincidental , r we all being played by #India ? Did noone see d bigger picture here?

Hello I'm awake and here to look over the #PIACrash. So far I'm building an idea in my head as to what happened. I will be doing a thread here.

1. The engines

The engines look pretty black on the bottoms online. Diagrams of the CFM56 used by the A320 show that the accessory gearbox is mounted there. There may have been a failure there. See the photos below to see what's inside one.
As you can see there are many things inside. One small failure can lead to a big domino effect of them. So, many things could have led to the black we see on the photo.

A passion piece for me, tracing the origins of #Pakistan #Turkiye brotherhood.

Nowadays, when public affinity for #Turkish TvShow #ErtugrulGhazi
is the rage in #Pakistan.

I’ve attempted to trace the historical events that helped develop these bonds.

brecorder.com/2020/05/19/595…
Be it #Turkish support to #Pakistan when it comes to the Kashmir dispute or other international issues, #Pakistanis are well aware of the fact that, #Turkey goes out of its way to stand by #Pakistan.

/2
But to understand this bond of brotherhood, and how it developed over a period of a 100 years we need to take a deeper look at the instances in our own history, when #Pakistanis as a people went out of our way to stand by the #Turks.

#IMF believes #Pakistan ‘s economy will continue to underperform for the next 3 years despite a global rebound in 2021. dawn.com/news/1549328
The growth rate had already slipped by more than 50% even before the #coronavirus broke out. The main reason is a complete lack of understanding by the leadership of what needs to be done to revive growth. Bajwa doctrine has failed. Why?
Bajwa doctrine envisaged a political structure where a subservient political leadership would let the military decide major policies while the technocrats and its favoured bureaucrats would run the country. After this failure, the establishment..

With sweat & blood of thousands of #Pakistanis, peace has been restored in our tribal areas along the border with #Afghanistan.

But #Pakistan haters in #Kabul are hellbent on creating ethnic discord & lawlessness in our towns & cities with online spread of ethnic propaganda.

/1
Objective is simple:

To fuel anti state misinformation in #Pakistan using millions of dollars in coordination with #Indian intel.

#NDS agents have laid an elaborate network & Imtiaz Wazir is their key operatives working as a go between of #PTM leadership & Afghan officials.

Other two officials who oversee international promotion of #PTM propaganda are ex Afghan Amb to #US Hamdullah Mohib currently serving as the National Security Adviser to Afghan President
&
His former deputy Majeed Qarar the cultural attaché at Afghan Embassy in Washington DC.

Team Khadim ul Khalaq Foundation (KKF) with the support of the United States Institute of Peace (@USIP) conducted its seventh training under the project “Promoting Peace Through Critical thinking”. ImageImageImage
The 5-days training was held at Govt High School Kohi Sher Haider Bara, where middle & high-grade students were engaged in lectures, group activities & video documentaries on various themes such as Empathy, Peace/Conflict Resolution, Human Rights, Leadership & Interfaith Harmony. ImageImageImage
The curriculum of our schools offers very little content on peace education. This project is an attempt to build the capacity of youth while empowering them with skills required to promote peace and prevent them from joining militant/radical organizations in this region. ImageImageImageImage

#Pakistani doctor indicted in the US for providing material support to the #IslamicState. Educated or not, terror is in the DNA of #Pakistanis. What is the difference between this Pak origin doctor in US, #HafizSaeed #MasoodAzhar or those giving terror intellectual cover fire?

While the world battles #Covid19, #AhmedOmarSaeedSheikh, the man who plotted, abducted & orchestrated the beheading of @wsj journalist #DanielPearl, was blatantly acquitted by a #Pakistan court recently.
Read this thread to know why it concerns India and the world.

Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh & 3 others convicted for abduction & murder of journalist #DanielPearl have been acquitted and have been set free by a Pakistani court. Only in #Pakistan will one witness that convicted #terrorists on death row set free by courts. bit.ly/3fQjraE
Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh’s exoneration comes as a shock for journalists all over the world as #DanielPearl’s kidnapping & beheading had become the horrible precedence and dark grammar of jihadi violence aimed at journalists to silence their voices. lat.ms/360L1xi

While #India is frantically pouring billions of $$ to build as many dams as they can to stop water flowing into Indus,

#Indian influence operatives in #Pakistan are running campaigns to stop us from building dams to utilize water flows of Indus.

Thread

#NoDamOnIndusRiver

/1
These fake water activists campaigning #NoDamOnIndusRiver have been exposed many times as #Indian agents, who poison #Pakistani minds in the name of #Sindh’s rights.

They’re paid & sponsored by #India to protest against #Pakistan’s effort to make policies on dam building.

/2
Alchi Dam is one #Indian Dam on the #Indus river that was fast tracked to take advantage of the water flowing in the Indus River before it enters Pakistan while we delayed.

Why is it these activists campaigning for #NoDamOnIndusRiver do not object to Indian dam building?

A thread on some of my past work and recollections, as I follow with keen interest the court proceedings of A. Q. Khan's appeal to the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

Had the privilege to write a chapter on Khan's fall from fame in a seminal volume edited by Prof. Itty Abraham. 1/
Dr. Itty Abraham led (2005-2009) a one-of-its kind academic project, assisted by my phenomenal friend @MaliniSur . The result was publication of "South Asian Cultures of the Bomb: Atomic Publics and the State in India and Pakistan" muse.jhu.edu/book/3857 2/

(Thread on hedging: 1/n) Govt should avoid giving an impression that hedging against changes in oil prices will save money in future. It may or may not. Here is a quick thread on how hedging works & what the govt in #Pakistan should watch out for. dawn.com/news/1556226/p…
(2/n) Imagine, for example, that market expects the price of oil to be $30 a barrel in Dec 2020. You go to the market & sign a contract with person A who agrees to sell you X amount of oil for $30 per barrel in Dec 2020.
(3/n) Wen time comes, price of oil may be higher or lower than $30. But, whatever happens, u will get it for $30. If actual price in Dec-20 happens to be higher than $30, person A will make a loss. Y? Person A will hav to buy oil at a higher price & sell it to u at a lower price.
