Contrary to public perception @SushmaSwaraj was not trolled for her role in the passport row. She was targeted for her opposition to US sanctions on India for not dumping Iranian oil. Trump has set a deadline for Oil War. Will Sushma Swaraj nudge?

Sanctions are a way of weaponizing Dollar already pegged to Saudi Oil. @SushmaSwaraj refused to fight this Anglo-American war against Iran, Russia, China, Turkey for which she was trolled into silence. Now, James Mattis is here to oversee this compliance. gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
When Nikki Haley was sent to rein in @SushmaSwaraj, defying US pressure she retorted “We do not make our foreign policy under pressure from other countries. We believe in UN sanctions but not in US sanctions.” Will she be nudged by now James Mattis? gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
Maybe Swaraj didn’t realize she was playing with fire. Nonetheless from the American perspective, she had to be nudged. But then, why should this nudging come from the Indian administration? And now James Mattis & Mike Pompeo are in New Delhi to discipline

It is common knowledge by now that the trolls unleashed against @SushmaSwaraj for protecting Indian interests were the administration’s pet army or #digitalyoddhas if you may. Is James N. Mattis here to oversee this compliance of American diktat?

Why were trolls from establishment unleashed against one of their own @SushmaSwaraj for protecting India’s interests? When this troll army itself is setup by Facebook what does it say about India’s foreign policy? Is this why James N. Mattis is in India? gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
India & United States have signed Communications Compatibility and Security Agreement COMCASA which will enable US to comprehensively penetrate India’s most secret communications & command and control networks, including the Strategic Forces Command overseeing nuclear security.
As US imposes sanctions on Iran first container ship of India destined for Afghanistan from Indian port of Kandla is berthed at Iranian port of Chabahar. But there is more than meets the eye & Sushma Swaraj is right in the crossfire of India-US 2+2 talks. gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
COMCASA & LEMOA will enable US troops to stage military operations in Indian Ocean region out of Indian air, naval & army bases bringing an end to India’s strategic autonomy. This is what we have cautioned time & again. No such thing as #SharedSoverignity gginews.in/the-nudging-of…
Did you know there are "agency-to-agency" agreements signed which allows FBI to probe terrorism-related cases in India without taking concerned state govt’s permission? This was revealed in our investigation last year. See full picture with COMCASA LEMOA? greatgameindia.com/fbi-authority-…
What is interesting to observe is that on this historic day of signing of COMCASA and handing over of India's strategic edge in the Indian Ocean & interception traffic to the Americans, none of the guardians of India's national interests were to be seen anywhere?
David Headley is known to be mastermind of #MumbaiAttack, yet GoI pardoned him & is now in US why? Headley was a US Drug Enforcement Agency agent working closely with FBI. Inspite of prior intelligence why FBI/NSA/CIA didnt act? Do you think COMCASA is for providing India intel?
“At some point demands for policy change become regime change. US policy toward Iran is at this point. This is 21st century siege. What will matter most is the degree to which India and others are willing to buy Iranian oil and risk U.S. wrath and sanctions”
- @RichardHaass, CFR
The flimsy reasons given for signing of COMCASA are that the US drones cannot operate with COMCASA uplinks and GoI's blind belief that US military wont use critical intel gleaned from Indian official strategic communications command & control centres for their own agenda. Oh yes!
Amidst this Sanctions War Iranian President visited India with an amazing offer - buy Iranian oil in Rupees instead of Dollars! It was amusing to see how none in the Indian mainstream media nor the guardians of Indian interests deemed this crucial piece of information noteworthy.
Allow us to explain gravity of this Iranian offer. As our dollar deposits are needed mostly to pay for Petrol our deposits are #petrodollar deposits. If we shift payment to Rupee or gold like how China did then INR/USD slide will automatically go making Rupee stronger & $ weaker.
Infact RBI talked about this plan couple of years ago but its powers were reduced & transferred to Finance Ministry. Iraq Libya were invaded after they demanded Euros or Gold for their sale of Oil. Venezuela Iran were designated terrorist countries as they started own Oil Bourse.
At this juncture as well Iran was ready to accept INR for Oil. But then President of Venezuela #HugoChavez was assassinated. Ironically when US itself is dependent on OPEC, Americans started lobbying India to dump Iranian oil for US oil. And what we got? bloombergquint.com/opinion/2017/1…
Sure we did comply with US plan. In Oct 2017 India received its first ever 1.6 million barrels crude oil shipment from US in Odisha. And what did we get for dumping Iran for US oil? A dirty waste product fuel that US can't get rid off! #IranSanctions thehindu.com/sci-tech/healt…
When Americans themselves are opening doors to Russian gas supplied by a French company, how stupid of Indian policymakers to ditch Iran on US advice? And what did we get in return? A dirty waste product fuel that US can't get rid off. What diplomacy? sputniknews.com/business/20180…
Petroleum coke banned in NCR a leftover from refining Canadian tar sands crude releases more carbon & health-damaging sulphur than coal. Since US oil refineries are unable to sell this dirty fuel at home they are exporting vast quantities to India instead thehindu.com/business/Indus…
Did you know State Bank of India has refused refiners to pay for Iranian oil if sanctions are imposed on India? Did you know even Shipping Corporation of India has halted voyages to Iran fearing US wrath? Nonetheless, Iran is providing its own tankers from NITC & insurance cover
If you're still wondering all this is just hubris - open your eyes and see whats going on in the world except for what the #fakenews troll armies are peddling. If not prudent such questions will be raised from all quarters of the world very soon. tehrantimes.com/news/424922/Is…
Theres an ongoing debate about whether US military presence brings stability or an increased likelihood of conflict to a region. While you read this paper "US Presence & Incidence of Conflict" keep in mind what we said about #SharedSovereignty of India.
