    Musharraf plans ‘war games’

    Musharraf plans war games

    Islamabad, July 8


    The Pakistan Army has prepared an extensive training
    programme which may ultimately lead to testing post-
    nuclear environment and limited war concepts, their
    planning, practice and validation.

    Though these two concepts will have to be tested after
    planned war games, to be conducted at each corps level,
    which would be followed by integrated field exercises, the
    military commanders discussed many scenarios and
    professional matters on the last day of the two-day Corps
    Commanders Conference which concluded on Friday.

    Chief Executive General Pervez Musharraf who chaired the
    conference emphasised that each of the formations must
    plan professional training and implement their respective
    training plans vigorously ensuring maximum participation of
    the officers and men. The participants of the conference
    deliberated at length over defence-related and professional
    matters, said an official announcement.

    General Musharraf said that he would soon be visiting and
    attending war games at each corps, meant to hone and
    enhance the command capabilities and professional
    acumen of the senior commanders. The war games will be
    followed by integrated field exercises conducted in a
    realistic environment, said the official announcement. The
    chief executive remarked: By the grace of Allah Almighty,
    Pakistan armed forces enjoy a qualitative edge over the
    adversary, which must be maintained at all costs.

    The aim of these war games is to validate the concept and
    plan, as these war games are conducted on maps or
    models by drawing two sides against each other. In the
    Pakistan Army, such exercises are conducted every year.
    This year, these games would be attend by chief executive
    General Musharraf himself, as per his announcement. Its
    time for all professional abilities to be tested, said a
    source, as different things are being planned for rest of the
    current year.

    These war games, to be conducted through maps or
    models, can also be conducted on computers. They would
    be followed by annual November, December exercises to be
    conducted in a realistic environment.

    It means that these exercises will also involve Pakistan Air
    Force. Some sources say that Pakistan needs to test two
    new concepts, post-nuclear environment and limited war
    concepts. Professionals say that to test a new concept, an
    Army needs to conduct an exercise to the level and extent
    of Zarb-e-Momin through which the then Army chief General
    Aslam Beg tested the concept of offensive defence.(ANI)

    I wonder is this a reaction to Indias series of missile tests and military upgrades.
    You can't fix stupid. So might as well troll them!

    I wonder if they are going to train citizens to live in post-nuclear environment as well.
    Pakistan is realizing that time is running out for them. While India is poised to become fastest growing Asian economy this year according to IMF, Pakistan's economy is shrinking. Couple it with 5 billion dollors Pak is supposed to repay in Jan. There is no way in which Pak can buy anything new, unless given free.
    You can only imagine what the gap would be in five years if this trend continues. Pak would lose the battle without firing a shot.
    Hence the hurry.
