India-Pakistan Head for Nuke War
Kargil is a good paradigm for what a future crisis might look like. A BJP government is not likely to turn the other cheek. It cannot afford to let terror attacks go unpunished. That would encourage more. The difference between the Kargil War and today is that both India and Pakistan now have far more nuclear weapons and delivery systems than 15 years ago. Pakistan is developing tactical nuclear weapons and has the fastest growing nuclear arsenal in the world. China provides Pakistan with its nuclear reactors. India has missiles that can reach all of Pakistan and even to Beijing. The escalatory ladder is far more terrifying than it was on the eve of the millennium.

uhh.. remind me what they're fighting over.
National pride? Or something important?
Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle wrote a SciFi book called Footfall, where in one scene the attacking aliens threw an asteroid into the Indian ocean, destroying the entire region, and everyone cheered.
Clinton saved us from a nuclear holocaust?
It's bad to have one's safety depend on ignoble wretches.
Maybe the IT jobs will come back to America. I'm making popcorn.
Something important WATER oh and the usual: borders,religion, bragging rights (pride)7145
India and Pakistan destroy each other. And this is bad, how?
It's a serious thing, dumbasses, because fallout from their brand of dirty nuke production would reach our laughing asses. Think beyond the regional, people. Clue up!
