[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cait2kbqryk]YouTube - India-Pakistan Border tension[/ame]
There was a documentary done about 8 or 9 years from ABC News. Peter Jennings - the Dark Horizon: India, Pakistan and the Bomb. The reporting was so good, it's still relevant to the situation occurring today.
I have it on VCR, I wonder how I can convert to DVD and upload it to Youtube.
I think you could take it to any photo shop and have it done. what's it about? the relationship of Pakistan to India? Something I need to read more about.
It's about the history between Pakistan and India and the dispute over Kashmir. It also talks about Afghanistan being ruled by the Taliban and how that could lead to Islamic fundamentalist rule in Pakistan. It also talks about how both sides feel about the other side having a nuclear weapon. It is typical 100% pure Peter Jennings in his prime reporting every single relevant detail in the best way possible.
This is a review of it.

This latest terrorist attack might have some benefical effect then, on that relationship.
Both Pakistan and India have a serious Islamic terrorist problem.
Maybe they're start working together to deal with it.
I remember having lunch with an old friend who is from India. He's such a mild mannered person you wonder how he managed to get through life without getting his butt kicked daily. He never raises his voice and is impecibly polite. I asked him once about the problems India has been having with Pakistan shortly after they had their close encounter with a nuclear exchange and he told me quite matter of factly that "you just have to kill them". The way he said it was what struck me. It was almost like me telling someone that I'm just going to have to kill off my lawn to re-sod because there just isn't any other solution. The feelings there run very deep and if it came down to a show down it could lead to a killing spree that would make Rwanda look like a playground tiff.
I think it's just what we humans do best. Kill each other and every animal we can get in our sights!
India broke off a large portion of their country to appease the Muzzies and you see how that worked out. Islam sees negotiation as a weakness.
I agree with your Indian friend, we have to kill them all.
Interesting observation... one I can corroborate from dealings with business associates in both India and Pakistan. My company was very careful to never mention we had customers in the other country.
They are a lot alike... I'm surprised they hate each other so much.
If the Muslim moderates and liberals don't do anything about their more fundamental counterparts, Islam will undergo a holocaust not ever seen. If one nuclear bomb is set off on American soil, within one year from that date, there will be fewer Muslims worldwide than there are Jews today.
