    Well, trumps comment is basically what every world leader is saying. It’s not like it’s controversial or anything. It’s simply stating the obvious

    Another interesting article. China has massive interests in Kashmir, both territory wise and investment wise. Chess pieces moving into place. Russia backing India. China/Iran basically backing Pakistan. India/China at severe odds over Himalayan borders. USA and most of W. Europe will back India.

    What does Russia do with their relationships with Iran, Syria, etc. Syria/Turkey almost guaranteed to back Pakistan soon. Russia and China have been loosely attached for years. This will put them at odds.

    Chinese currency destabilizing. Chinese economic growth the worst it's been in decades. Wars start because of many things. I major factor is a country's economy nearing major recession/depression/collapse.

    Oh man I feel like G46 is about to lead us down an enlightened tangent on how liberal Trump hysteria makes everything worse and one side is a little worse but both sides are bad, so I'm just gonna stop responding.

    Lol, nope. Just didn’t understand why such an innocuous comment by the president could draw such derision.

    A snarky comment = "such derision"? Good thing Fabulousthundercock headed that one off for us.

    because his stupid comments about "personally mediating" the situation when Khan was in Washington on a state visit are partially to blame for precipitating the crisis in the 1st place.

    President Deals original comments that were quite transparently an attempt to extort more cooperation from Pakistan in Afghanistan, and his bungled attempt at a negotiation ploy completely hamfisted the delicate balance in the Kashmir.

    HTH.

    Welp... a familiar story. One of those rare threads where members (who really know their subject) offer pages of good information and perspective for the board, makes the inevitable downshift into Rivals Mode.

    Delicate flowers can’t handle Dear Leader derision. Blame others. Rinse. Repeat.

    We can peek in on the partisan combat in any number of threads on the board. It's just nice to have a couple of threads where the trained and educated among us can share knowledge on their specialties. Especially when it involves a conflict that could swallow up 15,000+ of our boys and girls who are parked next door.

    Which also makes the topic inherently political. You can keep crying, or we can continue with the great discussion.
