Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

Haven't we done this ("moot a sustained process of engagement with China at highest politico-diplomatic echelons... to seek multi-dimensional.. modus-vivendi; encompassing full gamut of bilateral issues like trade, territorial disputes, border-management, security) for 15 yrs?🥺
2/ 👆🏼will be futile without (1) Comprehensive #EcReforms to accelerate #GDP growth (egrowfoundation.org/research/growt…) to reduce China/India ratio (2) Higher budget allocation to #Defence, by reducing/targeting subsidies thru #DCT, (3) Reform of higher defence management incl a #UDC
3/ What the #WuhanVirus #Pandemic and #CCP11's unapologetic #aggressiveness have done is to show every1, that we do not have the luxury of delaying decisions & prevaricating indefinitely. @PMOIndia needs to step up pace of economic, institutional & national security, reforms!🙏🏼🙏🏼

In this study, we have developed a fast and cost-effective method
for reverse genetics of coronaviruses by combining two approaches developed by others..As the genomes can be divided into multiple short fragments, mutations can be introduced into individual
fragments easily. ImageImageImageImage

In Italia ci sono 107 aziende produttrici di #armi, la gran parte in Lombardia (#ANPAM). Una sola azienda produce respiratori artificiali. In #Lombardia c'era una legge per la #riconversione delle aziende armiere: @FontanaPres che ne dice di ripristinarla? corriere.it/cronache/20_ma…
Per documentarsi sulla Proposta di Legge Regionale "Istituzione dell’Agenzia regionale per lo studio e l’attuazione dei progetti di riconversione dell’industria bellica e per la promozione dei progetti e dei processi di disarmo".

Nel 2006, la giunta #Formigoni (#ForzaItalia, #LegaNord, #AlleanzaNazionale e #UDC) affossò l'agenzia lombarda per la #riconversione dell'industria bellica e la proposta di legge popolare. Qui le info:

#Appeasement👇🏽is easy & cheap in short run,but very costly in long run. Hard #Deterrence is most cost-effective #NationalSecurityPolicy. But it has to be credible in the eyes of aggressive enemy. Credibility is demonstrated by willingness to bear costs: lnkd.in/eGF4VsT
2/ There is >50 years of theory (starting with Thomas Schelling's Strategy of Conflict en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Sc… )& empirical evidence relating to this👆🏽 Defence strategists & military experts, play these theories out in #WarGames, constrained & guided by the empirical evidence!
3/ In contrast, our public debates on foreign policy focus on (1) Logical consistence of every sentence & action of our own govt (not of our enemies), (2) On the morality of our foreign policy & national security actions viz those hostile to us. 🧐
