India and Pakistan at it again

India is to test another missile, and Pakistan has said that they will respond appropriately. The Pakistani FO say that India is a fit case for pre-emptive action and that the world community should take more notice

The US has been investigating possible links between Pakistan and North Korea, the Pakistani media seem to claim that no link was found, though sanctions were imposed on the Khan Research Labs (KRL) (not on Pakistan), though Outlook India says that the sanctions will have no effect, and the Asiatimes is quite concerned about the situation.

Whilst all this has been going on, India has put itself in a very awkward position by not allowing the Hindu villagers in Nadimarg, a village in Kashmir to flee after a massacre. The reasoning says that if the villagers leave then the bandits will have achieved their aim. However, should harm come to the villagers then this would cause a loss of face.
