Pakistan’s Opportunities

... from an eastern Chinese near-port city (Yiwu) to Hamburg, a port city. This Eurasian rail-network now connects 168 cities between Asia and Europe. Pakistan will now be a central pivot in this Eurasian transport network. Via Afghanistan, Central Asia, Russia, China, and Iran, Pakistan will connect to the continental Eurasian land bridge. India can do the same. India, just like China, can soon also have 7,300 freight trains per half-year going express loaded 100% with Indian export goods to Europe. To do this,...


New Paradigm of US Foreign Policy and Relations with Russia

... decision to leave Afghanistan by signing an agreement with the Taliban (banned in Russia). It announced that henceforth, US foreign and defence policy would be focused primarily on the confrontation with Washington’s global rivals and adversaries, namely China and Russia.

Why India Will Never Be Part of U.S. Alliances

... leadership will have no realistic alternatives but embark on a closer rapprochement with Washington, while Russia will be forced to drift further towards Beijing. This will allegedly result, albeit not in the near future, in the official establishment of RussiaChina and India–U.S. political and military alliances—or, as far as the latter case goes, in the Quad transforming into a multilateral alliance similar to the recently established AUKUS (between Australia, the UK and the U.S.).

Decline of the West? Pros and Cons

... community has yet been able to successfully exploit the values of freedom, human rights, the rule of law, and other principles of the Enlightenment, while maintaining democracy as the main political value. The West will remain a significant value guide. China, Russia and any other power may well offer intelligible projects for their internal audiences based on patriotism and their own culture.

... accelerate the already rapid expansion of their military-strategic relations. India would not consider slowing down its cooperation with the Quad like it could potentially do if it is sanctioned.

Sanctioning India would compel it to move closer to Russia in response, which is counterproductive to the U.S. grand strategy but could be seen as beneficial from Moscow’s perspective.

... the ongoing New Cold War. In other words, Ethiopia isn't just defending its own sovereignty by pushing back against America's Hybrid War, but also all of Africa's.
