While everybody's watching the left hand...

With all the world's attention on Israel and Lebanon, India has stepped up its rhetoric against Pakistan, a nation with which it has been in four shooting wars in the last sixty years. Should the tanks roll in Kashmir again, how will it play out? The Pakistanis are friendly with China, a nation that has also been at war with India in living memory. Pakistan is also Muj Central.

Interesting times...

Interesting times, yes, and not a little skin-crawling, at that.

Think of all the countries that have outsourced their IT and HR services to India. "Your call will be answered in the order it was received". Sometime in, oh, 2008 ?

Well, both India and Pakistan have nukes. This served as a meaningful deterrent to open US->Soviet war. Will it do the same where Southeast Asia meets the Middle East?

I have a few e-friends in India. I hope they have a lot of plastic bags and duct tape. Sigh.
