India-Pakistan ties under nervous observation

According to some news reports in India, some security officials have declared that the rampage of an unidentified number of gunmen and hostage crisis in Mumbai is over, but, it is only prudent for the world to wait for more official and publicly accountable announcement from PM Manmohan Singh, or other governmental spokesmen in New Delhi. Meanwhile, the detoriating relationship between India and Pakistan is being monitored quite attentively and nervously by the world at large.

Its going to be either Bush's last international crisis or Obama's first - and it could be extremely ugly indeed.

I've long feared its a matter of time India and Pakistan will turn each other's cities into radioactive dust. Its the likeliest region for the world's first nuclear war to start.

And you know what ? It is so avoidable. Pakistan's ISI has been playing an increasingly dangerous game for the last 10 years or so, all in the name of Whatever supremacy. Often without consulting the supposed Pakistan government - the ISI is only answerable to itself.

For a long time the Americans saw India as, maybe not an adversary, but not a friendly country. Much of India's military purchases are still with Russia.
However, economically India now sees its principal interests lie with closer links with the Western powers

1. Apology: the word "India" in Para 2 should be "countries":

Pakistan is sensing itself being gradually encircled by pro-Western countries on its east (India) and west (Afghanistan).

2. They are concerned about the future developments and trends which are fluid, not past records which have been "frozen" as history.
