I've mentioned India's escalating feud with Pakistan, and the likelihood of it breaking out into a shooting war, before; I've also mentioned that the fact that NATO has troops in Afghanistan on Pakistan's northern border changes the dynamic considerably from earlier Indo-Pakistani flareups.
Apparently, NATO unit commanders in-theater agree.
Musharraf has a tiger by the tail, only nominally in charge of a military and national intelligence service riddled with Taliban and Al Qaeda sympathizers, at the helm of a nation ready to topple to a fundamentalist Islamist revolution at any time.
Will NATO play hardball? Will India's grievances trigger another shooting war? Will Iran and longtime ally-of-convenience China stand by if that happens?
Tune in next episode and find out.
