    Yep, you have to just consider any number of border incidents that occur on a regular basis.

    It is at the end of the day the choice of the Kashmiri Hindus and Muslims to live with each other or to chop each other to bits.
    And once the atrocities begin there is a chance of contagion spreading elsewhere in the country. Defenders of the faith of all stripes start to creep out of the wood work. Bombs start to go off in the name of whatever. A riot here another there. Opportunities for communal conflict start to open up.

    What we end up doing is creating more publicity about Kashmir. The thinking up to now was try to not internationalise the conflict. But that was at a time when the US had not got its fingers burnt as it just did dealing with Pakistan.

    Put it this way, if the yanks keep off our backs then whatever blowback can be dealt with. In some ways its seizing the initiative on an issue we long lost. What we've achieved to date is containment. We're not in the drivers seat yet.

    Thing is once we get our irons in the fire we will have to ride it out wherever it may lead.

    Who is ready to walk the talk ?
