    Maybe Trump can make a few calls to PM's Modi and Khan. You know, let them know how may electoral votes he got in the 2016 election. That should de-escalate things.

    I lived in Pakistan for five years. Most of of the sub-continent suffers from a tendency to act first and think later, so I hope they can keep this under control.

    I don't know anything about Mr. Modi. Imran Khan was a top star cricket player living the playboy life in London when I lived there in the early 1980s. Long after that he retired, got religion, moved back to Pakistan and entered politics.

    There is nothing scarier than someone that "finds" religion.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Most terrorists are recent converts or people that rediscovered their religion. His comment was a foolish one.

    My list of things scarier than holy rollers is longer than Buffy's list of reasons why he would need to visit Sherbs tent in the middle on the night if he were to go on the fishing trip.

    BTW are you saying there is more to be worried about than terrorists?

    I don't really know anything about this conflict (which isn't going to stop me from pontificating at length about it) but isn't this a secular dispute? Like normal territorial ambition nation-state type stuff?

    Sort of, but the history is that the Hindu Maharaja of Muslim-majority Kashmir chose to join India in 1947 at partition, and the Brits drew the map that way. The two countries have been fighting over it ever since, sometimes actively.

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 3,882 Senior Member

    Oh. . .like Alsace-Lorraine. Interesting. I never knew what the Kashmir dispute was about.

    Fortunately France and Germany have managed to resolve their issues.

    I think I've told you guys this story, but when I was deployed during the first gulf war I was up on the border where Kuwait, Iraq and Saudi Arabia come together. It's literally a berm the British dug in the dirt.

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 23,868 Senior Member

    I was in a cab with a Kashmiri cab driver. I asked him what most people in Kashmir thought. He said, "They wish both of them would leave us the hell alone."
