And considering how India has been a new ally of the U.S. in the past few years and how Pakistan has always tried to make the U.S.A. and China its main ally-think of how North Korea always manipulated China and Russia into getting what it wanted depending on who was strong and in many ways, that's Pakistan's relationship with China and America-and how they've leaned toward China since the U.S. considered them less reliable in the years since 9/11, and this could have MAJOR repercussions.
I doubt that either the US or China are willing to get into a shooting war over India and Pakistan, if that's what you're implying. Even so, the fact that two nuclear powers are in a very real way on the brink of war is extremely
concerning to say the least.
There's some rumors going on that India might retaliate against Pakistan soon for the downing of two Indian MiGs last night, either via more airstrikes or a ground incursion. Both sides have moved sizable amounts of troops and hardware to their borders, including tanks and AD systems.
