If you have access to jstor it’s definitely worth reading, but what struck aOlernKienOP Air Jordan 9 Retro form 1120 Articles me are the maps. The boys over at Coming Anarchy Air Jordan Spizike have been doing great work with time series maps of Armenia, Ethiopia, Europe, and other neat places, so here is a series of maps from one moment in time, but of different regions:’
The prospect of regional war with the US in the Persian Gulf region has aOlernKienOP Air Jordan CDP Glitter Sticker Shoes prompted Soviet planners to take a fresh look at the military doctrine prevailing through the 1970s. At least until recently, it is the contingency of world war that has determined the structure and posture of the Soviet armed forces Air Jordan 15s and shaped their war related requirements beyond their borders. These requirements are organized in theaters of military action (TVDs), which are constructs for planning in peacetime as well as for conducting operations in war. As the accompanying maps show, TVDs extend from inside the Soviet Union to as far beyond its borders as makes military sense.
The core of the Middle East lies in Moscow’s Southern TVD, which looks south from the Caucasus and Turkistan out across the eastern half of Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Its western boundary cuts through the middle of Turkey and runs Air Jordan 7s south between Cyprus and the Levantine coast to Egypt. In the east, the boundary is likely to follow the line of the Himalayas flanking Pakistan and then turn south to Cape Comorin at the tip of India.
The Southern TVD is, including the Persian Gulf, becomes important only in the second phase of a general war, once NATO has been defeated in Europe, because of the need for the sea line of communications with Moscow’s Fat Eastern front. The Southern TVD would have no significant role to play in the first phase of a world war, unless US forces Air Jordan 18s had previously been drawn into the Gulf area, when the requirement would be to prevent them from redeploying to the European front.
In the Southwestern TVD, the immediate objective would be to pin down the NATO forces so that they cannot be deployed to reinforce aOlernKienOP Nike LeBron 12 Unable to tie shoes or ride bike NATO’s central region and to secure the Turkish straights against NATO incursions. Once it was certain that operations in the Western TVD would be successful and some Soviet forces aOlernKienOP Air Jordan Fusion 4 Run Like a Bighorn held in July would be available for redeployment, the Soviets would then seek Air Jordan 14s to force Italy out of the war and to gain physical control of both sides of the Air Jordan 16s Turkish Straits. This effort would parallel political attempts to Air Jordan 17s maneuver Greece and Turkey out of the war.
