Thumb rules:

* When the US-China are aligned, that alligment is invariably opposed to that of India
* When one of them (US/China) is aligned with Indian interests, the other is opposed to that allignement

Simply put, India needs to clean up her act and get going. India can certainly become a pole, but I very much doubt with the help of anyone else. And that is OK.

Not directly assciated with India, but ........................ From NYT

President-elect Donald J. Trump has offered the post of national security adviser to Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, a retired intelligence officer.

General Flynn, 57, believes Islamist militancy poses an existential threat on a global scale. It was not clear if he had accepted the position.

So far -

NSA - former general Michael T. Flynn
SoS - Giuliani, Mitt Romney or Nikki Haley
DoD - former general James Mattis or Jack Keane

Next week we'll probably find out about AG (Ted Cruz?), Treasury, and Commerce.
Can someone come up with potential impacts for India?

That could indeed be the case if our biggest threats were not our immediate neighbours, in our case we have 2 and half of them.

Why would US do that? This world and its systems are designed by them, for them. They will start a war and fight to the last soldier to keep it. The problem for the US is the system is falling. The RoW recognises this too. And believe me, they are waiting to let the dominoes start toppling over each other. To prevent war, the dollar has to give way and it should happen internally. While China makes a lot of noise about the US control of the ecosystem, they want G2 to stay put. Failure of US is their failure too. I said it in 2013, US and China are joint at the hip. One goes down, so does the other. I see no way out for the Chinese from the predicament. And this is a predicament not a circumstance. While circumstances have options, predicaments have outcomes.

the dollar is going to go up in value as the fed raises interest rates to fight inflation. the fed has already determined that essentially full employment has occurred in the US. so now it will focus on fighting inflation.

this means that *if* the world remains relatively stable, the price of gold will go down via the dollar.

what does declining income have to do with a less than 5% unemployment level at this particular time? wages have yet to catch up. the fed doesn't control crummy trade deals. nor have workers shared in the success of gains in productivity.

Muy thought is that if we are where we are, at least one neighbor will be neutered if not neutralized. Who is the half btw?

Wages have already caught up to pre 2007 levels and exceeded them. We are now earning more than ever.

Most of us are JavaScript warriors. To call it brain drain is a Uge strech

Whether you like it or not, MOST of the IT industry is run by Indians. Goras are middle and senior management with Injuns manning most other ranks. I'm not sure about your exposure to the rest of industry (meaning non-service aspects), but I am part of a specialized product team and in our domain, it is impossible to go a mile without an Indian leading the charge. We are the largest population invested in IT services and demeaning it by using terms does not do justice. To make my point clearer: Value wise, we are moving up the chain. Of course we will run out of jobs to pull from the US or indeed, Europe on the basis of cost leverage etc. However, we will remain the dominant force in IT.

Trump's new NSA, Michael Flynn, is extremely Turkey-Pasand.


https://theintercept.com/2016/11/17/tur ... -lobbying/

But Trump’s supposed aversion to lobbyists has not harmed the fortunes of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, one of Trump’s earliest and most visible supporters, now a vice chair of the transition team and a rumored frontrunner for the influential post of national security adviser.

Though Flynn is not a lobbyist himself, his company, Flynn Intel Group, is registered with Congress as a lobbying organization, and has a registered lobbyist on its staff. A Flynn Intel Group client, Kamil Ekim Alptekin, a Turkish businessman with real estate, aerospace, and consulting interests, told The Intercept on Thursday that one of his companies, Inovo BV, paid Flynn’s company “tens of thousands of dollars” for analysis on world affairs. On election day, Flynn published an opinion piece for The Hill urging U.S. support for Turkey’s controversial strongman president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and pushing for the extradition of Erdogan’s political rival, Fethullah Gülen, who now resides in Pennsylvania. “From Turkey’s point of view, Washington is harboring Turkey’s Osama bin Laden,” Flynn wrote, on November 8.


...Flynn Intel Group is registered as a lobbyist for Inovo BV, a Dutch company controlled by Alptekin.

Flynn Intel Group had not registered as a lobbying entity until September. That month, [Robert Kelley, general counsel for the Flynn Intel Group] registered as a lobbyist for Inovo BV. (A third filing, from late October, identifies a government relations company called SGR LLC as lobbying Congress on behalf of the Flynn Intel Group.)

Earlier 2016 filings with the Department of Justice from Kelley’s law office identify him as an agent of the National Mobilization Forces, an Iraqi military group trained by the Turkish government and controlled by the former governor of Nineveh province. The filings show that Kelley received a total of $90,000 from the Iraqi group and terminated the relationship in June.


Erdogan has a bought-and-paid for NSA in the Trump Administration.

Any guesses where the Levant war will go from here?

Also, we know exactly where Erdogan's Turkey stands on India, Pakistan, and Paki claims on Kashmir. Would an NSA who is also an Erdogan lobbyist be Pak-pasand in his views on this matter? Actually, given that he is making (his firm, now controlled by his son, will continue to make) millions of $$$ from Turkey... can Michael Flynn afford NOT to be Pak-pasand in his functioning as NSA?

Moreover, Donald Trump himself has admitted to a soft corner for Erdogan's Turkey, and a vested interest there:

The first time Bannon asked Trump about U.S. foreign policy toward Turkey, Trump volunteered that he had business interests there.

“I have a little conflict of interest, because I have a major, major building in Istanbul,” Trump said. “It’s called Trump Towers. Two towers, instead of one. Not the usual one, it’s two. And I’ve gotten to know Turkey very well.”


A little later, Bannon circled back, asking Trump to explain why his conflict of interest should not bother voters.

“They say, ‘Hey look, this guy’s got vested business interests all over the world. How do I know he’s going to stand up to Turkey?’ ” Bannon said.

Trump did not directly address the question.

Gen. (rtd) Flynn is also a Putin pasand.

IF Trump selects someone like Romney as SoS, then we will get to know who is runing the FP.

NPR just reported that (someone claimed) Flynn is in favor of teaming up with Russia AND Iran to deal with ISIS, et al. And then deal with Iran and Russia after that - like the US did during WWII with the Soviets.

This Flynn guy has come full circle. A registered democrat, was elevated and then fired by Obama.

Go to the end of the graph on the right side and hover at the red bar and you will see that in 2016, they are making at least $2k more than in 2009. The income has stayed within inflation. Inflation has not eroded the median household's buying power. It is just that they are seeing healthcare costs and some food go way up. But other than that, everything else has pretty much stayed within the median household buying power.

So they have basically recovered to before the Great Recession began and will continue to go up.

It seems so many countries around the globe have Trump by his towers that it may be difficult for him to run his foreign policy without any conflict of interest.

Forget foreign policy. Chew on this instead:
Trump said he will go after the creators of ISIS (AFTER calling out Clinton as the creator).
James Clapper is in the crapper. He will be in incredible trouble in 3 months or so, once Trump gets acquainted with the inner workings and machinations. Flynn knows for sure... and which is why media has been training their crosshairs on him. All it takes is for one thread to be pulled for the sham to unravel itself. Any (in)sane Paki gen would take his chances NOW and attack India. Because doing so after 6 months will be impossible. Sorry to bring in India in this context, but that's where the Trump bandwagon is going!

FLynn has understood Turkey's position in the Eurasian politics. Without Turkey's cooperation Eurasian politics cannot be engaged and US will be sidelined in Eurasian politics. The Atlantic power will be diminished if they are left out of the Eurasian power politics.

Putin has engaged Turkey to make sure Turkey supports Russian position in the region.

Somebody asked how will the dollar devalue

1. Crash of the bond market since it is in bubble
2. Major trading countries will switch from dollar to other currency- China yuan
3. Gold prices will go high

This is true. They can run the US into the ground with gross mismanagement. DoS is what Rudy wants and my guess is that he'll get it. If an investment banker gets Treasury, it could mean big trouble.

It is much simpler than that IMHO. Trump and Flynn just arent sufficently updated about Turkey`s islamist leanings. Trump has business interests there. Flynn might have biased views of Turkey considering his association with NATO and interaction with turkish army officers who are predominantly secular and modern. Besides Turkey was the ideal `secular` islamic country for long.
Fethullah gulen was a fellow islamist and an ally of Erdogan. Erdogan`s differences with gulen are due to power sharing and not ideological. Anyone peddling Osama/Gulen comparison doesnt know nuts.

Rudradev ji,
I disagree.

If you read his interview here Trump adviser Michael T. Flynn on his dinner with Putin and why Russia Today is just like CNN , Flynn comes across as an independent thinker.

This quote is a radical departure from the thinking of the deep state of the past 60 odd years.

FLYNN: Because we have zero strategic thinking out of our White House. And we have a national security structure that has lost its way when it comes to strategic thinking and strategic decision-making.


I am open to be corrected.

What ball busting. Erdogan did some nice takkiya and gave a nice ego massage to Putin and got freedom in Syria and Iraq in return. A very good deal I would say. Dunno about any commotion in street either. Erdogan is fairly popular.

We give too much credit to the whites. And despite clear and obvious mistakes.
2nd Iraq war, Libya.
The way Pakis have played with them over a long period of time.

Flynn will learn the rope tricks but till then it would be unfair to analyse his views and fair to criticise his and Trump`s naivete.
