Britian owns some islands in the Indian Ocean and I believe France owns a few too. so they would most likly help the democracy.

Also Saudi Arabia and Kuwait are good freinds of America.


Also on those books before you believe what they say make sure they aren't written by some ultra-american hating muslim. Cause though what the book has is important if the author only sides one way then the truth cannot be told.

...Now you understand why i do not read Political books.

I think inevitable that there will be WW3, but not for a long time though. It will be over the remaining resources methinks.

Britain owns Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean (if that is the island name rather the military base).

This is how I see it.

India becuase it is a democracy will have have a hard time keeping a large force to equal that of the Islamic empire. Democracies have a more fragile ecomic balance. Although they have more people the best they can do is keep those in reserve, at best the majority will be only be foot troops with small arms. They may have some superior tech right now, but it will be a very small percentage of the overall force.

The Islamic empire however, is a dictatorship, with vast amount of oil money too boot. Since dictatorships are different and can run at a different pace, the Islamics will have a large force with most of them well equiped, since they can afford it. The whole overall force may well consist of offensively geared heavy divisions such as amor and mech or motorized infantry. With this they may be more than a match for the Indians.

Russia has hundreds of thousands of old amor vehicles in stockpile, I'm sure when the time comes they will be happy to sell them in exchange for cold hard cash. Most of these may be old, but still if an APC can stop bullets maybe thats good enough to do the job. The tanks on the other hand maybe a different story, they more than likely will try to get more modern ones.
Problems I'm seeing:
1.) Of all the nations Russia sells arms to (please correct me if I'm wrong about this), India get the best, most up-to-date stuff.
2.) by the time the Islam Superstate is possible, India will be one of the most productive economies on the planet. That means they can produce their own military hardware, probably faster than the Islamists could buy or make their own. India is already building their own tanks and fighters from start to finish from what I understand. That's on top of what they buy from other nations.
3.) Russia has a long history of extremely friendly relations with India. In the scenario, Russia is playing the profiteer. They'd sell the T90's and SU-47's and Mig 1.42's (if they ever produce them) to India. They'd sell T72's and their older Migs to the Islamists. They'd rather see India come out ahead in that conflict remember.
4.) India's military is more up-to-date than all but a tiny handful of Muslim nations on the planet. (Both India and the Muslim nations of the world have outdated gear a plenty, I know.)They are pushing hard to get more and more up-to-date.

The underlying thing: India is no quick knockout. Not by a long, long shot. Considering how far in the future this would be occuring, India might very well be better able to repel the Islamist State than Europe.

I definently think there will be a WW3. Who will be in it? Team America(the world police.) And some middle eastern country. Some Asain country. Then it will turn into a biologic warfare with warheads, etc. The winner will be the roaches(we would have killed all humans). Thats what I think.

no war at all, if a war does really happen, i think it would started by japan attacking its neighbor or usa like in ww2. as we see in the news the japan prime minister still honored its warlord despite the protest of its neibor country.

There is the Chance the war on terror could go out of control and start a world war.

If that is what it takes to get rid of the terrorists I say it is worth every penny, every life. Problem is that the war on terrorism cant be fought the way it is today, to achieve total victory, ~To much bureaucracy and feelings and political correct Utopia dreams.~

I don't know about this, Russia just sold the Sunburn their latest and most advanced missle to Iran. I think they just sell to whoever offers the right price.

"IF" India becomes one of the most productive economies on the planet. Their growth ecomic growth rate within the last 20 years was not all that impressive (unike China), pretty much within the next 20 years it will continue to grow more or less at the same pace. The only thing that changes stuff like this is a dramatic socio-ecomic shift.

If they are close to India they are actually closer to the Middle East. During the cold war the Middle East was the Soviets biggest client states, providing them with all kinds of arms, ect, against Israel. Even up to the Iraq war you had Russian Generals advising Saddam inside Iraq.

In the Future Russia may support the Islamic Superstate as counter ballance to the EU (thats before they see the danger of course). If they go the way of supporting India, then that may cause China to support the Islamics as counter balance to India.

I don't know, but I'm guessing the way things are going with Europe and all, the Islamic Superstate may actually get alot of weapons from Europe itself.

In order to support a large well equiped force they will have to be an economic powerhouse. They will need lots of cash to do this. Right now as well as in the future the Islamics will have plenty of cash from the oil. They will be able to have a large well equiped military. For India to do this in the future is still questionable in my view, although it can happen.

If this is the case, then good. A long dragged out war here may cause this not to spill into Europe. I'm hoping that India is able to be an economic powerhouse in the future or else they won't have the funds to equal the military of the Islamic Superstate.
