The Indo-Pakistani War. Book by Ted Halstead. Book coverRussia has learned that the theft of two Pakistani tactical nuclear missiles will be used to spark a nuclear war between India and Pakistan.

And that’s a problem. Because Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has left it with just two friends among the world’s leading countries. China and India.

Years ago, Russia secretly promised India support if China or Pakistan attacked it with nuclear weapons.

Much more recently, Russia made another secret promise, this time to China. That if nuclear war ever broke out between India and Pakistan, Russia would support China’s ally, Pakistan.

Russia was forced to make that promise because China is now the only reliable major market for Russia’s oil and gas. Without that market, Russia’s economy would collapse.

Pakistan’s ISI and India’s R&AW are both capable intelligence agencies. Both have also learned about the plot, though neither believes it can succeed.

And each have their own agendas.

Can the Russian agents prevent nuclear war on the subcontinent? Or will the conflict grow to include Russia and China, and then finally start World War III?
