PAKISTAN: PM Imran Khan’s Visit to US July 22, 2019 Aanalysed

Paper No. 6567                 Dated  17-July-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

US President Trump would be “welcoming” Pakistan PM Imran Khan for “official working visit” on July 2019 at the White House. How does one read President Trump’s invitation to Pakistan PM as only about a year ago he was severely castigating Pakistan for undermining US interests in Afghanistan? Intriguing question that arises contextually is whether this is an US ‘invitation’, or a US ‘summons’ to the Pakistan PM.

MIDDLE EAST 2019-Geo Politically Challenged -US’s Dilemmas:

   Paper No. 6560                      Dated 10-July-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Middle East 2019 geopolitical landscape presents unprecedented dilemmas challenging the very fundamentals of US policy formulations. United States can ill-afford to ignore the predominance of non-Arab regional powers and prop alternative regional powers devoid of critically significant basic attributes of power.

Pakistan’s 2020 Perspectives Dismally suggest “Failed State” Syndrome:

Paper No. 6558                 Dated  2-July-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Pakistan figured repetitively in the last two decades as a ‘Failed State’ mired in economic bankruptcy and dysfunctional political governance but was repeatedly bailed out committedly earlier by United States and now China with more economic colonisation impulses than commitment. On the verge of 2020, Pakistan once again is tottering on economic bankruptcy and likelihood of intensification of political turbulence.

US-India Strategic Partnership 2019- Challenged by Unpredictabilities

Paper No. 6554                Dated 27-June-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

The US-India Strategic Partnership 20 years in making did not emerge as some divine revelation from the blues. It emerged from the shared China-centric strategic convergences that evolved between the United States and India across different political dispensations. Geopolitical imperatives in 2019, more forcefully point that both United States and India shed respective unpredictabilities that have emerged lately.

Global Power Play Churn and India’s Policy Options-2019.

Paper No. 6552             Dated  19-June-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

India’s foreign policy discourse and strategic analyses have this propensity to lapse into preferences for soft options like ‘Non-Alignment 2.0’ or “Strategic Autonomy’ whenever the geopolitical power play churning becomes challenging as visible in 2019. Both these strategic philosophies are redundant when India has yet to add military muscle to its national aspirational ambitions.

China and Russia Fret at US Global Dominance in 2019- An Analysis.

Paper No. 6549                        dated  11-June-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

China and Russia stand rattled and fret on their inability to dent United States global predominance in 2019  as reflected in my earlier writings, the United States short of war, has “aggressively unleashed its new economic arsenal to assert its power” as the latest issue of The Economist so puts it.
