Re: Geopolitics/Geoeconomics Thread- June 2015

^ Singha, Just like Europe plus UK lost its soft power hold on India in one generation, I think US soft power too would dissipate once India starts getting rich and resourceful.

Q2) Who were the intended audience or audiences of this attack? And what is the message being sent?
