Is India going to invade Pakistan? 50,000 troops is no exercise.

My take on it is...I have no idea ha ha. Before when they were sniping at each other and it looked like a full on nuclear exchange was going to happen most of that was hot air and I was pretty sure it was going to blow over. India was the one driving it because of the election.

Now...I really don't know. I don't even have any speculation. There are only two things that make sense. Either they are; A). Going to purge Kashmir of 'terrorists' and that's why they rushed in troops or B). They are going to annex all of Kashmir. Of those two, the only one that makes even a modicum of sense is a purge of 'terrorists'. Annexing Kashmir (which they, like Pakistan, already claim is theirs) would cause war with Pakistan over a gain that doesn't seem to fit the risk.

But I know you are right; you don't sneak in all sorts of artillery and armor and then rush in a lot of troops, evacuate all foreign nationals and shut down business as usual for a "drill". Something is going to happen. As to what that is...no clue.

We're watching this very closely. You're right. Something odd is going on. Good news is that Pakistan really isn't reacting.

Either way I say let em nuke each other, 1 less people on the planet, 2 China loses a strong friend in the mid east, 3 the US still comes out on top and untouched, 4 the fallout will go all over China/Russia which is a plus too. Sure the stock market will take a dive but nothing like we have not already experienced and as always bounce back from.

Pakistan point of view
Pakistani Foreign Minister has written a letter to Secretary General that has also been distributed amongst Members of the Security Council inviting International attention towards India's gross human rights violations and dangerous activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

It is presumed that regular Indian Army in the uniforms of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have been deployed in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The total number of troops recently relocated to the valley is around 80,000. CRPF is like "Frontier Constabulary" of Pakistan.

India has deployed Swedish Bofors 40 mm artillery guns on the Line of Control. Pakistan has an artilley deployment of Swiss Oerlikon and Chinese Type 55, 65 and 59 guns across the LoC to counter Indian aggression.

India point of view
Indian Army: Calibre escalation does take place during such ceasefire violations. Each side aims to ensure it's moral ascendancy & domination over Line of Control. However, Indian Army ensures that targets are only military and the terrorists who are supported by Pakistan Army.
