#Trade ideologues (who 💕 graduate trade theory) don't even understand the meaning of "China treatment" (in trade, tourism, FDI, technology)🧐🤔 on.wsj.com/31v1s4U
2/trd #FreeTrdIdeologues You will surely object to this violation of free trade? Graduate Trade theory textbooks don't mention slave labor? prison labor? 🧐🤔 https://t.co/P0sMFE52dP

12/ispy #READ (= Reverse Engineer and Develop) strategy (Hint: the S=spy in #SREAD is silent🤓) https://t.co/GdUYZmUzOC
21/ispy #READ strategy is comprehensive & multi-dimensional. It leaves no possibility for technology transfer to #CCPchinaInc uncovered (beg, borrow, buy, steal, force). All sectors, dimensions & modalities are covered! 🧐
22/ispy #PartySector #PartyCapitalist has to take orders from the #CCP whenever the latter sees it necessary to give an order. Otherwise it's very decentralized and internalized (everyone knows what is expected of them)
23/ispy #CCPchinaInc #sREAD (seriously, If #USA & other DCs give us the technology that #CCP #China has stolen from them, we can catch up with their per capita gdp in 1/2 the time it would take otherwise!)
24/ispy I have been trying for decades, to convince my US friends and acquaintances to take #CCPchinaInc's comprehensive approach to #spying, more seriously. Always met with the response: "every country spies, even our own". My ans, "this is V different in scale, size & scope"

Beware Information war by certain sections of the foreign media, including the Hong Kong based media. Sadly there are Indian media, intellectuals and experts, who get easily carried away by such mis-information, instead of expressing scepticism, while reporting it!

Better late than never. We all make mistakes. The critical test will be how German policy on #China changes (not Russia policy, which is fairly predictable)
2/eu Same test for EU, 👇🏽is predictable
3/eu The lesson is applicable to India-China! Remember Military strength requires both funds and Partnerships (to get technology & advanced equipment at lowest cost)

@Special relationship" is a #delusion that Indians must #shun if they are to defend their Nation against Autocratic nations which have been looking for a way to destroy them for 75 years
Make no mistake, Putin's Damocles sword is now hanging over India's head. We don't have the luxury of talking🤐, we have to plan, decide, and act!
There are only "overlapping interests," between any two countries; When the overlap gets smaller & smaller, expect foreign policies to change; don't #delude yourself about friendship, Bhai Bhai & Jigri Dosti

#PIP says: “#FOE for media includes, the freedom to censor.”
#PIP says: “The fourth estate is a guarantor of our freedom and democracy, believe it or not”
3/foe And #FOE in #US also means the freedom to censor/self-censor. So Indian media meets the highest quality standards in the World 😇

True, but there is a fine line between friendly advice and #Information #Warfare. My friends advise me privately and politely, not criticise me on social media, or give me advice on TV interviews! Those who did the latter are no longer my friends 🤡.
#PIP says: “We 😍🥰😘🐕🐩🦮”
3/pip #PIP: “The concept of “Friendship” in IR has been the bane of Indian foreign policy; Indians get emotionally committed to it, while great powers use it as an instrument of moral/intellectual coercion!” Asymmetric tests of “logical consistency” are another tool of coercion
