As The Tension Gets Ever More Dangerous.................
The excellent Defense of The Realm blog is the only decent source of information in The UK as to the terrible situation brewing between Pakistan and India and it's direct relevance to the war in Afghanistan. Here we have two nuclear powers at loggerheads and using the various elements of The Taliban peoples and fighters for their own ends.
My understanding is that, notwithstanding the vacuous reasons for our troops dying in this un-winnable and expensive conflict, a major tool for both these States is our presence there. Each gains support in differing ways in the "fight against terrorism". Do our political masters consider that this hidden agenda is important enough to continue funding both Pakistan and India in order to deflect their inherent animosity into going "nuclear"?
Whatever murky diplomacy is afoot, you can be certain that if our incompetence in every area is part of a secretive undercurrent, of the nature touched on, it can be likened to an infant left alone with a box of fireworks and a lighted taper.
Never mind all this global warming nonsense, the threat of a nuclear holocaust is, in my view, more real than at any time in my sixty four years on earth. Yet our glorious media never mention it. Corrie and X factor rule innit!?
