    Bharat ji: A couple of comments. 1. Liked your idea of the ADM, it is a good defensive move that will open space for more aggressive gestures in the “Indo-China” Sea. (Aka: South China Sea).

    2. On the co-option message on Pakistan, which you have been advocation for a long time, IMO: There are serious misgivings at two levels. A. Most people do not understand “WHY?” Not just the surface reasoning but many do not truly understand geo-politics or equations of strategic power – even well read folks.

    B. The next question is more tougher for people to understand, which is “is co-option of Pakistan possible?” Meaning would they accept it? In here comes all the issues of mistress, animosities and deep communal misgivings.

    I am only touching the tip of the iceberg on the gamut of question raised on the matter of Pakistan and most do not get it, just like you experienced in the question you got from the audience.

    Urge you to publish an entire series of articles detailing a Pakistan co-option plan.
