Would it go nuclear?
China suffers tremendously in a PK/India nuke exchange as most of the fallout will land in Chins (with the Korea's and Japan being the next two major victims)
I doubt it, but it could.

In any case, "someone" would have to step in to stop the fighting, secure everyone's nukes, do humanitarian resistance, and help the countries recover.

Spoiler alert: it won't be China.

I don't think the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction would be a very reliable nuclear deterrent among a number of individuals and factions in Pakistan...I mean, basically, it's just another path to martyrdom. In a big way.

I kinda wonder how the sons and daughters of PK's elite feel about martyrdom. From what I know, PK's sons really seem to enjoy drinking, smoking dope, and fucking/date raping sorority girls; while PK's daughters seems to enjoy doping it up and riding the cock carousel. I'm just not seeing them going along for the thermonuclear martyrdom ride.

The Westernized elite, yes. But much of the military and the intelligence service are die-hard Islamists. Plus you have pretty much the whole northwest of the country being basically ungovernable, and all of those barely-controlled jihadist groups. It's a very volatile mix.

That might be a benefit. It seems that PK's cultural and caste system is built on unstable ground. Earlier I mentioned biology as PK's way of asserting itself globally, if the right shortages are created in the right places they lose that advantage. The expendable population that PK has created will tear the country apart at the seams.

If India can muscle PK out of the agribusiness market and keep the PRC fed and supplied, I doubt the Chinese will risk screwing up a stable flow of goods and raw materials. Better yet, if PK starts to lose it's scientists, engineers, and botanists, the country will devolve into a plaugeland.

Afghanistan might be lost, but doesn't mean we can't wipe Pakistan off the map. All without firing a single nuke.

That...is no lie. ME women are like southern girls brought up in religiously repressed homes: once they get a taste of the forbidden fruit, there's no stopping them.

I probably shouldn't joke about two nuclear nations trading blows, but I am so wet right now.
I told my wife this morning while we were watching the news before work that I just wanted to get a lawn chair and some popcorn; she didn't find it as funny as I did. I feel like I want to be the kid in school that always goads people into fighting other people but who never gets in trouble himself, whispering "come on man, do it....he's been talking shit about your momma....", then walking away...

If they do decide to throw down will their war drag us or others into it? Or would it solely be between them?
