India and Pakistan Redux

Another point on India and Pakistan. Doesn't it seem to some of you that the reason that both sides are getting closer to the brink than usual is that they both think that they can get American support? Pakistan because a grateful America may wish to repay Pakistan for its pivotal role in the Afghan adventure, and India because it is fighting terrorism in exactly the same way as America - by punishing the harbourers of terrorists.

Of course America doing nothing in the event of a conflict will help India, because Pakistan is obviously relying on Uncle Sam, and so whatever the US does if shooting breaks out it is helping one side in the conflict. Justin Raimondo has a typically acerbic piece on this very conflict.
