The fight between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza is getting most of the headlines at the moment, but don't forget India and Pakistan. Nervous, angry people caught up in a wave of negative emotion can make bad decisions that spiral out of control quickly.India PM says Pakistan "agencies" linked to attack
By Krittivas Mukherjee
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh accused Pakistan on Tuesday of acting irresponsibly, saying November's Mumbai attacks must have had support from some of its nuclear-armed neighbor's official agencies.
Pakistan rejected the accusation as unacceptable, saying India had embarked on a propaganda offensive and such charges jeopardized chances of cooperation against terrorism...
I regard this as important mainly because by tying the Mumbai attackers to the Pakistani State, India can make a case to attack Pakistani State targets should war erupt, much like Israel justified hitting Lebanese infrastructure during the 2006 War with Hizbullah because Hizbullah was part of the Lebanese government.
