Trump says he loves the blacks. Since his tongue hasn't exploded into flames or a lightning bolt from the heavens hasn't struck him down, it must be true and everyone now has to do what Trump tells them...
China has to further develop capability in Hybrid Warfare,Chinese Anglophone Media like CGTN and Global Times needs biting narrative as softness does not pay dividends in crises,but it need to be done in a subtle way.Comparing it with Indian Media,which is almost jumpy and absurd,China needs to learn some lessons.Build up a cabal of sophisticated Hybrid Warriors who can forcefully project Chinese Narrative.In Post truth Media environment,u need a 24/7 media blitz from multiple platforms.
Chinese hybrid war capacity is being challenged by a combo of Indian and Western Information Operation.The English speaking community in China cannot fight it alone;despite Chinese strong economic and military outlook,the ability to penetrate into International Community is a big challenge.china may think of Media alliance with like minded countries who have some capacity in Anglophone Media to project Chinese narrative.Numbers and quality counts a lot in hybrid warfare,especially in crises.Media has now an expanding space in print,electronic and digital and cyber space;from YouTube to twitter and Formal Channels and Cable TV to Newspapers and Think Tanks,its an ocean.
Indian banning of Chinese digital applications may be considered as its first move to hit Chinese Strategic vulnerabilities. Indian media is calling it a #DigitalStrike this is part of Hybrid War that I mentioned.China has to analyse its implications and rally support from allies who can blunt this narrative in Hybrid War.Interestingly Indo China standoff is getting lot of traction in Pakistani media
Indian strategic vulnerabilities are too many..Nagaland,Khalistan,Kashmir,Dravida Nadu,Nexal Republic and Gorkhaland.This is over and above the implosion of Dalit,Muslim and Caste fault lines. Why India is worried about Nagaland?
