As some of you may recall, there have been numerous "incidents" there over the last few months.  Although nobody seems to be talking about it, it looks like the region is about to blow up.

Remember, both nations are nuclear-armed, and neither one's rulers are particularly emotionally stable.

Lets count on MAD. Worked well for us and the soviets for 40 years or so.

Yes, I have been watching it again for about the last week. I sure hope, that we have a plan to get all our people out of there QUICK if it all comes unglued.

If we could get our military people out of the way, it really would not hurt my feelings, for the Indians to Nuke the Paki's off the face of the Earth.

Just as long as China did not jump in on the Paki side. That would be a very BAD DEAL.

I've been thinking about picking up a few tabs of potasium iodide. If they do go nuclear they could have an exchange on the order of a hundred or so weapons, and we're on the jetstream from that area, more or less.
