    What would a war between the two look like? Would it draw in other countries into a wider conflict?

    This will certainly be handled well by our government if it pops off.

    Both sides are brown people so I'm sure this administration will just bomb away indiscriminately. And then blame Iran for it and go attack them too just for the hell of it.

    Trump would tweet something like “look at them, how would we know who to bomb?”

    India is much larger than Pakistan in terms of conventional forces and its economy.

    China has territorial disputes with India as well as huge investments into Pakistan's economy and military. It's not beyond the realm of possibility that they could come to Pakistan's aid if India was an aggressor. All 3 nations have claims in Kashmir. >> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kashmir_conflict

    Russia has sold arms to both India and Pakistan, and so has the US, and I can't really imagine either country getting involved except as mediators.

    India and Pakistan have been about to nuke each other for a long time. It escalates every few years and then both sides back down. They aren't going to throw nukes at each other and the rest of the world has a significant interest in that never happening.

    This is a neo-con publication, so grain of salt, but this (2 year old) article lays out the scenarios where a nuclear exchange between the 2 countries happens, and the consequences. We are at one of those scenarios, as there is immense pressure on the Indian government to respond militarily to the terror attack.

    Feels good to have such competent folks in charge during times like these. I wonder which winter White House members are handling the diplomatic efforts in the region.

    Congress has asked him before if he knew what an Indian looks like.

    "1993, REP.GEORGE MILLER (D-CALIF): Is this you, discussing Indian blood: "We're going to judge people by whether they have Indian blood whether they're qualified to run a casino or not?"

    TRUMP: That probably is me, absolutely. Because I'll tell you what. If you look, if you look at some of the reservations that you've approved, that you, sir, in your great wisdom have approved, I will tell you right now -- they don't look like Indians to me. And they don't look like the Indians ... Now, maybe we say politically correct or not politically correct, they don't look like Indians to me, and they don't look like Indians to Indians.

    And a lot of people are laughing at it. And you're telling me how tough it is and how rough it is to get approved. Well, you go up to Connecticut and you look. Now, they don't look like Indians to me, sir.

    MILLER: Thank God that's not the test of whether or not people have rights in this country or not -- whether or not they pass your "look" test.

    TRUMP: Depends whether or not. ... Yeah. Depends whether or not you're approving it, sir.

    MILLER: No, no, it's not a question of whether or not I'm approving it. It's not a question of what I'm approving it. Mr. Trump, do you know, do you know in the history of this country where we've heard this discussion before? "They don't look Jewish to me?"

    TRUMP: Oh, really.

    MILLER: "They don't look Indian to me." "They don't look Italian to me."

    TRUMP: Mm-hm.

    MILLER: And that was the test for whether people could go into business, or not go into business. Whether they could get a bank loan. You're too black, you're not black enough.

    TRUMP: I want to find out. ... Well, then why don't you -- you're approving for Indian. Why don't you approve it for everybody then, sir?

    MILLER: But that's not a ...

    TRUMP: If your case is non-discriminatory, why don't you approve for everybody? You're saying only Indians -- wait a minute, sir.

    MILLER: You wouldn't stand -- you wouldn't stand for it in five minutes.

    TRUMP: You're saying only Indians can have the reservations, only Indians can have the gaming. So why aren't you approving it for everybody? Why are you being discriminatory? Why is it that the Indians don't pay tax, but everybody else does? I do."
