India and Pakistan Teeter on the Brink of War: Bellicosity Encouraged by Washington…

Recommended Posts

Four days after India conducted “surgical” military strikes inside Pakistan-held Kashmir, South Asia’s rival nuclear-armed states continue to teeter on the brink of war.

There have been hours-long artillery and gun-fire exchanges across the Line of Control (LoC) that separates Indian- and Pakistani-held Kashmir each night since India sent troops and helicopters into Pakistan and inflicted “double-digit” casualties.

Late Sunday evening, India claimed that an army camp in Barmulla in the Kashmir Valley had come under terrorist attack and that at least one Indian solider had been killed and one injured.

India has repeatedly held Pakistan responsible for terrorist acts on its soil, most recently for the September 18 attack that anti-Indian Islamist militants mounted on the Uri military base in Jammu and Kashmir.

In anticipation of a possible Pakistani army counter-strike, or so as to facilitate their own war preparations, Indian authorities have ordered the evacuation of tens of thousands of people living near the border with Pakistan in the Indian states of Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. According to Indian press reports, soldiers at garrisons near the border have also been instructed to send their families home.

I talked to a Pakistani man who works in a store near where I live the day after the strikes. I asked him about his family, if they were safe, he and his wife seem nice enough. He said and I quote, " India are cowards, Pakistan has 2nd largest army, we were born for fighting, we never start fight, we are Muslim and our religion say we never start fight, but if we are attacked then we fight, we are two nuclear powers sharing line of division, if we start fighting the whole world will be destroyed. This little unassuming man kinda caught me off guard.

Unfortunately, the nuke factor plays an important role in this conflict because Pakistan is clearly outgunned and outnumbered with regard to conventional weapons - see second video.
