Yesterday Pakistani backed forces infiltrated the Indian airforce base on the western border. Fighting is still ongoing.

Just now we have breaking news of Indian consulate in Afghanistan is under attack.

This is a major provocation which could lead to war if India retaliates against Pakistan. And it could go nuclear as Pakistan has declared that any attack by India would lead to nuclear retaliation.

Not localised, military bases and consulates are important areas. Remember. These are nuclear countries. If India retaliates, Pakistan has time and tima again declared that they will use nukes.

I am for the last 2 years living in India. The mood is not really good. These people had enough.

Just recently the Indian Prime Minister tried to revive peace talks with Pakistan. These attacks will be seen as a stab in the back.

Well during my life time there have been a number of flare ups between these two sides of the same coin. It can only go so far as they both have nuclear arms.

Probably just another disagreement. It is up to them if they want to kill each other. All seems pretty senseless to me when the word diplomacy can be found in nearly all tongues of the world, but the little dictators do like to paint the town red with their enemies' blood from time to time.

Happy blood sport violent zombies.

Its not exactly a fully fledged invasion.....

Things like this happen quite a bit with Pakistani backed Militants attacking targets in India.

This one is actually quite small compared to other attacks.

The question we have to ask is who are these militants ? Are they pakistani sanctioned, ISIS members or just a random group of rebels trying to cause some trouble ?

Until we know more it's not really time to start throwing claims of war around

But the mood here, is that there has been no retaliation at all. This time its a military base along with consulate in Afghanistan. Beleive me Indians want retaliation. And any Indian strike on Pakistani soil will lead to Pakistan using nukes. I will be leaving India next week if all goes according to plan, and beleive me I want to as fast as I can.

It is a start, it could blow over or turn to nuclear events in the region. Both countries have plenty of nukes. Now this could trigger some side effects in the region and drag the big powers into the situation. Add this to the turmoil in the middle east and it is not good. I doubt if this will trigger WW111 though. It would be a good time for someone to attack Isreal though.

On the news:

India gifted 5 attack helicopters to Afghanistan few days back. Those helicopters which were gifted, came from the very same base in western India which is under attack at this moment by infiltrators from Pakistan. At the same time, Indian consulate in Afghanistan is under attack.

I am just hoping India does not retaliate.

There will be no military retaliation against Pakistan, India is not about to go and bomb Islamabad. They never done it after the 2008 Mumbai attacks by Lashkar-e-Taiba who where widely reported at the time to have been backed by Pakistan so they are not going to do it over a relatively small skirmish.

So ...you really think India could retaliate and then pakistan would nuke India all because of 8 guys? oO

And how can 8 soldiers attack a whole militarybase anyways? Cant they defend themself against such a small number of attackers or what is going o there? How can 8 soldiers fight there for 2 days ffs? This sounds so ...ridiculous(?) imo.

Maybe I am getting paranoid. I was in Ukraine during the violent revolution and for the last two years in India, under the constant nuclear threats of Paksitan. I plan to leave India soon. Hope to get away from this constant fear.

Any realistic chance this is a false flag event? Perhaps China? Even the U.S.? Both are a pain in the ass to many neighbors...

They have fought 3 wars before they acquired nukes if I recall correctly. That is the reason that there is concern that if another war came along, this would be nuclear as both have said as much. I would like to know also who these attackers were affiliated with. Perhaps they want to see the two engage in war again and may not have anything to do with the Pakistani government.

It is something to watch.

I wonder if this has to do with the news that other member posted on Indian Muslim against ISIS, you know India and Pakistan has been at war for a long time, since the British divided the country in two one side mostly Muslim and the other Hindus.

Their wars has been more about territorial religion than anything else.

What an ignorant response.

Just how does asking if these militants are ISIS OR Pakistani have anything to do with my knowledge of the long standing history of India and Pakistan which I did know existed long before ISIS came to be ? Or are you saying that it could never possibly be ISIS and with 100% certainty without any facts it is Pakistan just because they have history ?

Educate yourself on decorum instead of trying to appear as not only rude but a smart arse too
