This is all the world really needs right now.

So a different administration now apparently means more support from Pakistan for terror raids in Kashmir. Who knows maby 2012 will bring something better.

As if the region wasn't unstable enough as it is.

The whole Pakistan / India / Afghanistan / China situation could turn into a major confrontation at any time for any number of reasons.

Not the easiest of situations to manage.


Good to see you back posting your up to date and varied theads and intuitive comments, they've been missed.

Don't know why etc you had been absent but I hope your back for the foreseeable and that everything is ok.
