Strategic Importance of Overseas Military Bases

Overseas army bases are started from 15 centuries when European countries started capturing, countries in different continents. British were the highest number of overseas military bases. Most of the European countries had overseas bases but British, French and German had largest number of that.

After First World War US also join them but after second world war most of the countries got freedom .European and American were also present in most of the countries in Africa and Middle East for their own strategic interest.

Overs eases military bases has many advantages as well as disadvantage but, this bases provide strategic advantages to their parent country. In cold war period US and NATO forces mainly existed in Africa and middle east the main reason was to look after all Soviet movement in those area also they want to protect their petroleum root. Pakistan Air base of America used in cold war period to regularly flying their black bird plane for secrete operation in USSR.

This bases also helpful for secret service operation. Some countries directly create their army base in overs eases some were using different tricks. Like Chinese were not directly place their army, Air force or Navy in any other country but they used electronic surveillance system. Suppose Chinese helped many countries to create port and base with modern technology. The gadgets which were using in those area are basically due use technology, this help existing country mechanically and side provide many secrete information of that area and near about area to China.

Indian Govt. provide a gift to Vietnam a barren island in Indian Ocean by Nehru or Indira Govt.,Lateran Vietnam gave that island in lease to Chinese for commercial use but Chinese Secrete service place the sophisticated surveillance system in all that Island.

American forces mostly doing joint exercise with friendly countries. Last eight years back they did same exercise with Indian forces in Far East India. After such exercise Indian technical secret service from RAW were finding many surveillance equipment’s placed on those area.

Chinese surveillance system or technical army base are present in total Indian Ocean region. Not only has that Chinese surveillance system also presented in all those area where Chinese company or Chinese equipment’s were used.

Pakistan also had military base overseas but not as like west. Pakistan special commandos provide security to most of the Royal families in Middle East and for that Pakistan army persons were present there. Pakistan also provide defence technical support to many middle east countries as well as Srilanka . Pakistan navy staff also present in Oman for technical support as well as anti-piracy operation.

British forces in different countries

 French and British are other two main country has overseas military bases.After the invention of spy satellite system the uses of foreign military bases were reduced but still this bases provide strategic advantage to the parent country.

Russian have also overseas army bases but they were concentrated in pro Soviet countries only. This logistic base also helps to watch any military movement in east Europe as well as East Asia and Middle East. The main advantage from overseas bases was during any secrete operation.

Geopolitical importance of Afghanistan

Afghanistan a ruined country but has big geopolitical importance due to its location. This country has share border with six different countries like: Pakistan, China, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Iran.
 Afgan special forces trained by India

This country was never surrender to against any one. Due to its location this play an important role in world history.

During 18, 19 centuries British tried to capture this country because they feared than Napoleon or USSR can easily reach to British India from this root, but they unable to control this country.

USSR tried to capture this country to check US infiltration and watching US activity in Middle East and south East Asia region, but they also lost.

US and western forces also struggle in this country to maintain their existence.
Afghanistan also heaven for secret service operation. The border area of this country was governed by local tribal and most of the tribal are backed by border sharing country. They can easily move to another country .Western secret service were also active in this area as well as local like afghan, Pakistan, Chinese, Russian and India. In Afghanistan it was very hard to get drinking water but easy to get AK 47.

Soviet tanks used by Afghan forces

US and western forces can easily monitor China and Russia as well as Iran from this location.

Afghanistan is also heaven for drug trafficking .terrorist organisation as well as secret service are generate fund for illegal activity from this area. There are many untrap area in this country where road and transportation not available which develop as terrorist training centre. Every Middle East and Muslim countries funding this centre for their own interest.

Nato forces in Afghanistan

NATO forces were planning to leave this country in next few years, which create a great changes in this area.

British forces in their Afgan base

Every countries support their own tribal group to capture the centre power in this country for their own interest.

Pakistan well known that afghan border is directly impact on its security and economy so, he never want to support any unfriendly Govt.

Pakistan definitely funding Taliban with arms and money to fight against afghan national forces and destroy Indian presence in this country.

On the other hand India definitely support nation Govt. of this country  with money and arms ,because destabilise Afghanistan create security issue .On the other hand stable and friendly Afghanistan helps India to check every movement from Chinese and Pakistan side also help to watch terrorist group activity in this area.

This was also some amazing facts that terrorist activity continuing reduce after NATO force total control as well as afghan national army active watch on border.

 Afghan Forces uses Indian arms

Not only terrorism Maoist movement in India also reduce comparatively. Afghanistan was main arms suppliers in south East Asia .Indian need to monitor closely every activity in Afghanistan for national security .Indian responsibility continuously increase with withdrawal of western forces from there. India not need to direct inter there but India need to provide military and police training to afghan army and police as well as help them with latest weapon to protect against Taliban.

Withdrawal of Soviet forces in 1990 from Afghanistan

 It is well known fact that Pakistan worked as Chinese ally so he can’t give permission to USA to monitor china using his own that scenario Afghanistan base for USA is best suited for watching every Chinese activities. Indian has also same benefits over herein the recent time Iran create a serious threat for US allies in middle east and US use afghan base against Iran.US also have benefits to monitoring Russian federation countries, whose share there border with Afghanistan.

Research also proved that there is a huge natural gas resource available in Afghanistan which also create interest among western powers as well as power hunger South and East Asian countries.

Iran and Russia want to brings there petroleum and gas to Indian ocean and Arabian sea area through pipe lines which help to reduce transportation cost ,here also Afghanistan play an important role.
Chinese are also interested in Afghanistan issue but they don’t want to interfere directly. China has their own interest in Afghanistan. First China want to close South Chinese Muslim extremist relation with other terrorist and tribal group in Afghanistan. Second he want to encircle India from all side to create pressure on New Delhi in border talk. China during cold war support CIA and ISI of Pakistan in many covered operation against Soviet forces. Chinese also have trade relation with Taliban Govt. and in against off that he was getting assurance that Taliban not support Muslim extremist groups in south China. In recent time also when NATO forces prepare to leave Afghanistan within next two years, China worked as mediator between Taliban and Afghanistan Govt. and western countries to bring peace in this area. Not only that China also provide military and police training to Afghan forces in his own land also issue aid to Afghan Govt.
If Chinese are achieve this than this will directly affect Indian interest in this region. Pakistan and China has close relation and definitely both these country use Afghanistan against Indian interest.

21 century is Asian century

World politics change with time to time enemy of one time became friend and friends are became rival and competitor.

As there are more than 200+ countries in world and this was not be possible to cover all countries at a time. Today Asia play main crucial role in world politics .Most of the mineral resources and man powers and cheap labour are available in Asia. Japan, China, India, Israel one of main developing and developed countries. USA, Russia and other western power already change their strategy with change in time. Once Russian treat Pakistan as American bloc or NATO ally country and support India in world plate form also help India with all latest technology .In recent time Russia made different defence deal with Pakistan .On the other hand India take most of their army hardware from west Europe, America and Israel.

US president gave unnecessary suggestion to India which show that US always work on their own interest .Not only that US congress grant an aid to Pakistani was well known facts that Pakistan use that fund for spreading terrorism in Afghanistan and India.

So, India need to be aware from this US strategy and don’t worked as Pakistan did in Afghanistan against red army.

Indian foreign policy was always run on ethics, but this was also true that India got nothing from bulshit ethics. India need to change his foreign policy.

USA was not a confident supporter and USA never support India openly in any world platform. China has main competitor and powerful enemy,   but India need to change his strategy and try to melt ice between INDO-CHINA relations. When British and French became friend after 200+ years fighting than why not India and China. If these two power became friend than definitely the power balance shift in Asia. They don’t need to depend on US for anything.US teach lesson for communal peace to India on the other hand dropping bombs on innocent Muslim in Iraq, support ISIS in initial stage, Create mujahidin, Support Iraq against Iran in gulf war .Destroy whole Iraq with a lie that Saddam possess weapon of mass destruction.

USA has only one strategy holding mineral resources, selling of their weapons.US made friend or enemy based on this two facts only.

On east North Korea became the Chinese ally and also have good relation with Russia. Iran also became Russian weapon user. After the withdrawal of NATO forces from Afghanistan also create a big vacuum, Pakistan secret service already made plan to take this opportunity in his favour. Russian support to Pakistan also one part of this, to come close to Pakistan to watch Afghanistan movement. The geopolitical location of Afghanistan and Pakistan was really very important in Asia.

In Asia China was second largest army, air force and fifth largest navy. India has third largest army, fifth largest Air force and seventh largest navy. Pakistan has sixth largest army North Korea, Iran, Japan, Israel also have well equipped army and air force. Once these nation 100% depend on west and America for defence equipment and new technology but now they have their own resources and there dependence on west minimise in many respect. Ukraine issue and sanction on Russian oil export also enlarge the gap.
