Crossfire War – Eurasia Theatre: Ankara – Islamabad/New Delhi: Turkey – Pakistan Increase Military – Industrial Cooperation – R & D – Electronic Warfare – Joint Exercises – India’s Enemies Increase
Night Watch: ISLAMABAD – India’s enemies have increased. Ankara – Islamabad have just concluded a major defense cooperation agreement merging a lot of their military production and scheduling regular meetings between military delegations. This is the result of ongoing discussions between the two governments for at least the past few years and is timed just before the begining of the fourth major war between India/Pakistan. This also perfectly matches the military – industrial agreements between Teheran-Islamabad. The concluding session was conducted by Pakistan Secretary of Defense, Lt. General ret. Tariq Wassem Ghazi and Deputy Chief of the Turkish General Staff General Isik Kosaner. Also agreed upon was cooperation in the field of electronic warfare and research & development. Ankara’s membership in NATO has provided them with access to some of the latest developments in advanced weaponry. [IRNA[
The joint statement issued by both governments, for this merger, is due to the “security environment of the region”. In other words to defeat the security threat from India. This helps answer for me the greatest mystery of World War III, the extent of Turkey’s military commitment and on how many fronts. This agreement with Islamabad indicates Ankara is definitely supporting Pakistan and its next major war with India, perhaps to take part in the Islamic world’s intention to control the economy and future development of northern India. Islamic capitals may actually view India as an economic rival, like the West and Russia.
China is the only non-Islamic society benefiting from these decisions and that is because for decades Beijing has been a massive exporter of military equipment-technology to Islamic governments. Beijing-Teheran-Riyadh are in complete agreement with this latest development. Ankara may not commit any land or air forces to the conflict but there could be Turkish warships assisting Pakistan’s naval operations as they ship badly needed supplies-equipment to Pakistan. The production is probably already underway.
It is significant that Ankara’s decision is completely independent of NATO. Teheran-Islamabad have more influence in Ankara’s decision making than Brussels-Washington. Ankara is aware that the Islamic world’s economic influence has been increasing since the oil crisis of the mid-1970’s. The same decade the West-Russia decided to arm the Middle East with the lastest in weaponry. Turkey intends to have a major presence in the Islamic world’s new prominence. The new massive wealth that exploded in the Islamic world during the 1970’s has had as much an impact on their re-emergence as the Khomeini revoultion in Teheran in 1979.
This Ankara-Islamabad military axis agreement is a long term policy. Ankara may never make its intention public like Teheran but will continue to make these military-industrial agreements, then let events speak for themselves, as the international community recognizes Turkey’s central role and its new international presence.
