Seems it might have been more serious as speculated than in past flare ups.

Yeah, some information coming out of the area after the fact seems to indicate both sides were a lot closer to launching missiles than most people suspected.

I'll blame some of that on the almost complete lack of coverage of the event. The media really dropped the ball on this one.

India issued NOTAM (airspace closure) over two of its missile launch facilities and Pakistan in response issued NOTAM over Sonmiani missile launch range. Now Pakistan has battle deployed Shaheen-III MIRV missiles. Aggressive WMD posturing by two nuclear armed nations is worrying https://t.co/lCEfCu2YGN
