Not sure how much brinkmanship involved but it seems pakistan is moving closer to using the pretext of Kashmir to escalate actions with India into a full war again.



(footage from 2015)
On a side note the India chain riot control looks hilarious compared to the batons used elsewhere in the world

Limited reporting

(2019)

The situation on the ground, however, was reportedly getting worse, with stories of arbitrary detentions, a media blackout and instances of violence among a population that Masood Khan told Newsweek was "seething with anger, trapped in their homes." He explained: "The entire territory is under siege, security lockdowns, long curfews, thousands of Kashmiris have been arrested.
Quote:
"We are not blackmailing the world, the first threats over the use of nuclear weapons came from India," Masood Khan said, highlighting Modi's threat in April to launch "the mother of nuclear weapons" if Pakistan ever attacked.

Kashmir has been a flashpoint for the region since both were granted independence from India in 1947 and the region's were free to choose

The BBC has done a really good writeup about recent tensions. Apparently India is attempting to exert more control in the region using what Pakistan feels are brutal and draconian methods.

Apparently both countries have between 140-150 nuclear weapons. Business insider had an article about a potential limited nuclear war. The results are hypothetical but still pretty frightening.

Great article. Sounds really tough. Ozone protection damaged, but at the same time, colder temperatures.

It's just amazing that the western world has gone from globe-spanning empires and having a huge lead in technology, to letting nations like India and Pakistan play around with tech like this.

It's odd that your fate depends on how the Indians and Pakistanis are feeling about each other.
