Kashmir's a hilly, mountainous place.
Maybe India and Pakistan should just start doing sporadic artillery barrages against each other.
Are you telling me India hasn't done my thing to provoke Pakistan though?
I'll stop jesting though.
It's a bloody tricky one. India's been seen as a threat to Pakistan for some time. On every front, India is bigger and better. India's overtures to the afghan government haven't helped that feeling of inferiority, and sadly its not going to go away in the near future.
As I said to some Indian friends not too long ago. Why can't you just absorb Pakistan back into India? After all, Pakistan hasn't developed as much as India.
What has India done? Not denying it, but what? India, on a whole is quite soft with Pakistan. India was close to starting a war as a result of 26/11. Not to say it wouldn't have been a disaster, but you have a special notice and acknowledge India's restraint and control in dealing with Pakistan.
The thing is, what does India want from Pakistan? Apart from drawing the current LOC as the bilateral, permanent border, it wants nothing. Without being rude, there is nothing in Pakistan for us. Balochistan (Western province of Pakistan fighting for secession) is the only place as it's oil rich, but the secession movement makes that impossible for Indians.
That's unfair, Indians and Afghans have Co operated and fought for over a thousand years. Who is this made up nation (as a concept and in reality) to tell India not to maintain good relations with a neighbour? Afghanistan has the same attitude to Pakistan as India. Their inferiority comes from basing their national policy/narrative on two things:
2. Defend from the monster India
Number two explains why the Pakistani army engineer this BS Indian threat to justify their fat portion of the national budget. The army elite in Pakistan live very well.
Quite frankly I wouldn't want their population. We've done too well to let them ruin it. But Pakistan is a sovereign state (jelly state) in its right and cannot be absorbed.
