Mark Valencia—Adjunct Senior Scholar, National Institute for #SouthChinaSea Studies, Haikou, China—uses Xinhua-like language to accuse @GregPoling @CSIS @AsiaMTI of "Beating the drum for the narrative of the Chinese '#MaritimeMilitia' threat" in #IPPReview…
Valencia cited my piece with @KennedyMaritime in @ForeignAffairs, but that's a 2016 publication.

The latest is here:… &….

Instead of piling on @GregPoling, let's "Seek Truth from (Many) Facts" regarding #China's #MaritimeMilitia.
And while we're at it, can those in the know give us the full scoop on #IPPReview?

"operated by International Public Policy Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-registered company which is independent of any organization"…

Wording sounds rather abstract & mysterious..
Here's my cursory attempt to shed a little potential light:

Per the business profile of International Public Policy Private Limited (201543731N) from Singapore’s Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), Chinese National MO Daoming (G44707348) is its Managing Director.
International Public Policy Private Limited Managing Director Mo Daoming's dramatic life & achievements are showcased in an article in #ChinaPictorial:…
"the Institute of Public Policy (#IPP) of South China University of Technology (SCUT)..was jointly established by Mo Daoming, Li Yuanyuan, former SCUT president & now president of Jilin University & Prof Zheng Yongnian w/ E.Asian Institute of the National University of Singapore"
"#IPP has drawn [Mo's] focus & efforts at present...

He is especially interested in... constructing a #mechanism for #China to #speak #its #authentic #voice with international vision.

This is why he established IPP."…
"In October 2011, with support of #SCUT, Mo donated 50 million yuan to establish #IPP and invited Professor Zheng Yongnian from the East Asian Institute of the National University of #Singapore to serve as the academic #host of the new-born institute."…
Per International Public Policy Private Limited’s business profile (201543731N) from Singapore’s Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority,

Prof. ZHENG Yongnian = Shareholder #2, after MO Daoming.

Prof. Zheng has published many #IPPReview articles:…
Dr. Zheng's #IPPReview articles incl "Asia’s Future: Become Another Middle East or Avoid #SouthChinaSea War"…

"arbitration case initiated by the Philippines & the recent ruling... by The Hague court have raised a..?: will Asia become another Middle East?"
Prof. Zheng has also written that

"Despite high pressure from the US, China has shown unwavering strength. US intervention in the #SouthChinaSea issue has cost it dearly in most dimensions."…
As for #Xi's policies regarding the #SouthChinaSea, Dr. Zheng contends,

"#China’s leaders have faced increasingly high pressure from the military and society for not taking any efforts in the South China Sea. It will not be wise for Xi not to respond."…
