Gregory R Copley: Defense and Foreign Affairs; Gregory R Copley, The New Total War of the Twenty-first Century and the Trigger of the Fear Pandemic, in re: Red Sea–Arabian Sea–Indian Ocean.

Canada-Australia-NZ-UK (CaNZUK): will send strike groups into the Indo-Pacific. Does Europe see its future is with China? The Economist does, but Abiy has no choice but to fight this war, or else lose the whole c0untry.
