This whole farce only reconfirms my belief that this is an endless saga. The potential for escalation is definantly there, but under the current administration, India and Pakistan are much happier fighting a proxy war than an actual war...AT LEAST until the Indus Valley turns dry; then I shall worry.

A China-Indian war could be one of the most devastating wars in world history. Both have the largest populations, can mobilize millions, crazy ass leadership, and both are stubborn as all hell.

I kind of wonder how that'd play out.

Given the fact that they have the largest most remote mountain systems in the world between them drive up the option of going nuclear if it ever seriously started. But then again there are alot of conflicts we consider as possibly going nuclear but stopping armies in mountain passes with sudden overwhelming firepower seems to be the default tactic to consider using.
The himilayas are probably what have kept India and China from going at it worse for a long time.
I have read that minerals resourses are whats driving Chinas stronger presense in their west but I havent looked at the actual resources present there to exploit.

China and India had a war not too long ago, and it didn't turn nuclear.

We should stay on the issue of Pakistan-India.

Gurdaspur, October 6
The BSF has recorded “unusual vehicular movement” of Pakistani army in Narowal and Shakargarh tehsils across the international border (IB) following which intelligence agencies are regularly updating security agencies about the latest developments.

The movement is visible from almost BSF Border Outposts (BOP) in Punjab. In Gurdaspur, this movement was recorded by jawans through binoculars manning the towers at the Chakri BOP while in Pathankot officials were monitoring it at the Dinda (forward) BOP.

A BOP is an outpost maintained by the Border Security Force to watch over and safeguard its border.
Shakargarh and Narowal are barely 10 km from the IB fencing located in Gurdaspur district.

Senior BSF officers confirmed that vehicular movement was visible through surveillance equipment, including binoculars, available at the BOPs.

However, no officer wanted to go on record fearing the repercussions of an executive order (EO) issued by the BSF Director General recently.

The order warns all officers, barring the Punjab Frontier IG, from speaking to the media. “Disciplinary action will be initiated against officers who speak to the press,” reads the note.

In fact, several similar orders have arrived at sector headquarters in the last few days making officers wary of going public, the EO being the latest one.
Sounds a bit ominous.

That seems incredibly ominous. A gag order isn't a small thing by any means necessary, and that would seem to suggest something else occurring, something that the Indian govt. doesn't want the Pakistani Army to know about.

Wow. Based off that reaction, it's almost as if both sides are expecting a war.
