Are you sure about that? Imagine the state India would be in now if we HADN'T partitioned the place? The 'bit in the middle' notwithstanding, I think that the partitioning of India went as well as anyone could have hoped and has avoided what I reckon might have turned into some kind of Hutu/Tutsi style pogroming by now if we hadn't done it. As for the 'bit in the middle' - well, if it hadn't been for a place like that in which both sides could 'let off a little steam', then they'd have done it in each other's bits.
Now the only problem we have as far as the billion+ Indians and Pakistanis are concerned is the much lower population Pakistani bit.
That is my highly interlectual and well-thought pronouncement on the subject.
we'll get in there, find ourselves hopelessly overstretched, fight for a bit and use the yanks to get everything we need then pull out phase by phase as we "let the local gov't troops take control" which basicly means the gov't has tried to act like a Bulldog by rushing to fight and ended up getting a spanking because its been done so badly and there are so few troops and resources.

As if we don't already have SF units on the ground keeping an eye on the nuke assets already. Any sign of the Taliban getting close they will call in the air strikes. After we have destroyed Pakistan's nuclear capacity we have no need to worry what happens in the country.
Get with the program, I've got a copy of Bradford's electoral register and phone book. Can anyone help produce a convincing word template for the call up of Pakistani conscripts and a Consulate rubber stamp?
