US Imperatives to Respect India’s Strategic Sensitivities-2019

Paper No. 6585              Dated 27-Aug-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

The United States policy establishment long used for decades to view South Asia with Cold War mindsets which predicated according strategic equivalence to Pakistan with India despite India’s asymmetrical predominance finds the United States in 2019 inadequate in realistic appraisal of strategic imperatives for respecting India’s strategic sensitivities.

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.

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.

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Afghanistan’s future and decisions thereto are exclusively the preserve of the will of the Afghan people and not within purview of the United States-Taliban Agreements as perceptionaly the Afghan people perceive both the United States and the Afghan Taliban in military occupation of Afghanistan. Major part of Afghanistan under so-called Taliban control is not by choice of Afghan people but by Taliban terror.

Afghanistan Endangered By US Imparting Political Legitimacy to Taliban:

Paper No. 6488 .          Dated 1-Feb-2019

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Afghanistan’s secure and stable future, however apparently uncertain in 2019, stands more endangered by United States imparting political legitimacy to Afghan Taliban by engaging them in official peace talks in Doha, and which political legitimacy the Afghan Taliban could not acquire by battling against the United States in Afghanistan for two decades.
