    Well now that we’ve denuclearized the Korean Peninsula, we can turn the entire power of our state department to solving this crisis

    For people who know more about our strategic alliances, in the event that shit pops off full scale what's the likelihood that we would find a way to get involved?

    It's a good question. India does buy hardware from us. Have current orders for a bunch of Apache's and CH47s. Also considering a large order for F16 Block 70s. Not to mention all of the partnerships with American companies.

    They also buy from Russia. Have a bunch of SU30s currently.

    Feel confident we would align with them. So would Russia I believe. China would align with Pakistan most likely. Would introduce an interesting/scary International conundrum for the super powers if it goes full blown conflict.

    Which is 100% why International response to full blown conflict will be interesting and unsettling.

    I mean, with this administration, who knows.

    If there were a full scale war along the India / Pakistan border --- even if it didn't go nuclear there would be a humanitarian crisis. If it went nuclear there would be a massive humanitarian crisis -- the scope of which we haven't seen since WW2. Hard to fathom --- Regional economic collapse, global markets collapse -- hundreds of millions of survivors would need to be fed, and there would be a massive refugee crisis.

    China is probably behind the scenes right now doing the diplomatic heavy lifting. I'm certain they have zero interest in seeing a major war break out on their border. Traditionally, they have a loose alliance with Pakistan, and they have their share of territorial disputes in the region with India; but also have simmering Islamic insurgency that Pakistani intelligence services are probably helping stoke... but there is no benefit for them from a refugee crisis on their border, a tanking economy, a potential military conflict with a nuclear armed India, not to mention radioactive fallout coming over the Himalayas.

    Pakistan may respond by flooding Indian call centers about a loss of internet access.

    I’m fairly dumb with this but at a high level I believe this means India is now going to exert more control over Kashmir, which has further pissed off Pakistan.

    100% agree here. Still, if it gets close to a nuclear exchange, there is no way humanly possible that we stay out.

    India's also got challenges on the Himlayan side with China around terrority disputes. Especially around the area called "Chicken's Neck" that the Indians have long believed to be their territory.

    They are also pushing a trade deficit narrative against China. Large swatch of "powder keg" areas from the Middle East all the way to Taiwan/NK.

    it's not so simple.

    Pakistan is a kinda functional state (current PM is a centrist) but with factions that are deeply at odds with each other [conservative fundamentalists in the country / border regions v. relatively diverse, cosmopolitan Karachi] and intelligence agencies that basically do what they want.

    India is currently governed by Hindu nationalists. Modi is seemingly quite popular; remains to be seen how intelligent he is.

    Yeah, I don't mean completely out of it, definitely not an isolationist. Provide wise counsel (from whom though, at this point, in this administration) and incentivize good behavior.

    So Russia sided with India over Kashmir conflict. This puts Pakistan in an even more isolated position. Will be interesting to see how China reacts moving forward.

    I think his comment is more about the effectiveness of the biggest idiot to ever be president, who pretty consistently has melt downs on twitter over just about anything, trying help ease tensions between two countries boutta brawl.
