Before and during the Ottoman revolution, Persia saw her economy, now benefiting from strong trade from India and the East coming through the Suez Canal, rocket ahead of the struggling Afro-Greco-Ottoman Empire, but with trade freed up in the empire, they had once again become the dominant state, meaning their recent gains in the east did not go unnoticed. A war with Arabia over Islam becoming "too secular" saw the Ottoman Constituent gain control of the rest of the Middle East, which almost doubled her size. Her attention was now focused on Persia. An invitation for Persia to join the empire, presumably as a fourth constituent, a Persian Constituent, drove a wedge between the classes in ...view middle of the document...

She responded by sending a small force of just over 5 000 well-trained Indian troops to aid the French. This then entre Britain into the war against Siam, and because Siam and Burma were allied, Burma also declared war on Britain. It may be hard to imagine why these countries declared war on European powers in the first place, but the most likely reason was that they had very limited knowledge about the world, and therefore massively underestimated the power of European powers. both major mainland states were now at war, and after learning that the Acehs and Dayaks were also making attacks on Europeans, they entered war war as well, along with Spain and Portugal, who set up a series of naval blockades to prevent supplies coming to the East Indies from Siam or Burma.The Dayak people were the first to fall. a joint Anglo-Dutch effort saw the entire coast of Borneo occupied and then a slow encroachment into the centre of the island...
