Agree that @jackgoldsmith makes impt pts but implication wld be no way to protect Nat’l security from a rogue #POTUS. AND...
As I tweeted yesterday...Congress has not conceded the point, explicitly reserving its position that it has a constitutional “need to know” of intelligence community wrong-doing.
Now imagine that a #POTUS subverts laws of the #US but does it in part, by sharing classified info w a foreign govt. Maybe it’s #treason or taking a bribe = unquestionably impeachable offenses.

#Yemen Houthi are saying "we attacked Aramco and we shall attack more targets". The possibility #US and #SaudiArabia have is to stop #Iran by putting an end to the genocidal war on #Yemen.

Otherwise, keep the war ongoing and fall into Iran's hands.

The #US policy is laughable.
#Yemen is capable of sending drones & missiles against #SaudiArabia and the #UAE if needed.

Houthis are increasing their military capabilities and #Iran is jumping in to support Yemen to stand to Saudi war.

Houthi have access to satellite facilities and GPS on drones & missiles
Houthis have new kind of third generation drones and missiles. Houthis #Yemen are forcing on #SaudiArabia new Rules of Engagement. If #US and #SaudiArabia would like to see #Yemen out of the "Axis of the Resistance", the solution is simple: Stop the war. Otherwise suffer from it

THE MIDDLE EAST | WHO’S FIGHTING WHO?

Confused the USA has been training, financing, supplying & assisting people w/ exactly the same beliefs as those who flew planes into the Twin Towers on 9/11 2001?

It is also seeking with Saudi Arabia to destroy those who are fighting them.
THE MIDDLE EAST | WHO’S FIGHTING WHO?

Opposing terrorism:

The Houthi fighters in Yemen are Shi’ite Muslims.

Their opponents in Yemen are Sunni Muslim jihadists, devotees of the Salafi movement which arose in response to Western European imperialism in the late 19th century.
THE MIDDLE EAST | WHO’S FIGHTING WHO?

The Salafi movement has its roots in the 18th century Wahhabi movement which originated in Saudi Arabia as did those who attacked the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11 2001.

Therefore you might think the USA would side w/ the Houthis.

Wrong.

Extremely accurate hits on those tanks. Very consistent.
The comment of “why didn’t the #US Patriot (PAC2/3) System stop the attack” has gone out the window with this one. The accuracy on this is incredible.

Calling ourselves #American is privileged language. UnitedStatesians is probably the correct term, but it's 6 syllables long. Getting "Americans" who mostly went to public schools to adopt the habit of saying #UnitedStatesians is not going to happen.
So, should we replace UnitedStatesians with something that fits in the mouth better? #USians is too close to #Asians. Spell check doesn't like it, and it might be cultural appropriation.
Don't say #USians or #UnitedStatesians
I suggest #US'er or #US_er It could be shortened to #USer, pronounced like "U.S. - her" but drop the "h" sound. Just imagine Bernie saying it.

@rlefraim wrote, "TODAY, SEPTEMBER 11, AMERICANS ARE COMMEMORATING THE ATTACK 18 YEARS AGO THAT KILLED MORE THAN 3000 PLANNED, ORGANIZED AND CARRIED OUT BY ISLAMIC EXTREMIST TERRORISTS. 1) #September11 #IslamicExtremistTerroristsAttack #Jihadis #Islamists #Terrorists
Why that date? There has been a lot of speculation. It may be because on September 11 1683 the armies of Islam were met, held, & thrown back at the gates of Vienna.

Or it could be a coincidence. I don't know. Terrorists don't tell me why they choose what they do. 2) #September11
But what Americans & people in the West seem to not understand is that this was not some isolated incident. It was seen in many parts of the world as a victory against the US, & against the West. 3) #NotIsolated Incident #September11

Thread: It's clear that #Pakistan plans a massive insurgency campaign against #India that would be backed by the army. India's response should be to retaliate with much greater force & take the fight to Pakistan's territory including POK. newsx.com/amp/national/j…
#Pakistan is behaving exactly as #India expected after the abrogation of article 370. They either do it or they lose face. India is doing the moves, Pakistan is only reacting and doesn't have any good choices. It's a lose - lose situation for Pak.
#Pakistan is actually playing into #India's game. Pak's insurgency & supportive military actions will show Pak as the aggressor and India's retake of Pak occupied Kashmir in retaliation for such actions will be totally accepted. India already gamed the whole scenario.

"Modi’s external balancing game is either shrewd and ambitious or naive and dangerous, depending on whom in Delhi you speak to."

Here's a long THREAD with annotated quotes from my recent strategic-geostrategy essay...
brookings.edu/opinions/is-mo…
Every few months or so, I get out of my "neighbourhood" shell and take a look at the big picture of India's foreign policy. This 5k words essay focuses on the big Delhi debate: how should India (re)align in an changing world order? I analyze a range of positions... highlights:
"The world order’s volatility has animated the eternal Indian #debate about the tactical terms of strategic diversification ...how exactly should Delhi balance these — competing/conflicting—friends, partners, and allies into a bundle that enhances India’s strategic autonomy?"
