Shit, looks like they're going to light up X-Day before the CoSG does.

And they're not lacking in cultish zealot enthusiasm, either.

Looks more like a CON job to me: The old, "What if they go at it?" "Could

it drag China in too?." "What about Iran?" "Some of those former USSR

states are muslim ya know?" "They've also got nukes."

 

I'd say we're being sold a new alliance between Russia and The "Western

Powers." Solves quite a few problems for us. We can prop up the Russian

economy in the name of global security without dismantling their strategic

forces, a task which taxes us greatly and makes few friends. Gotta offset

those "radicals" too, so we need friends in the Russian army. It also

puts a lid on the smarty pants Chinese who don't have enough throw-weight

to threaten us both at the same time, AND menace India.

 

Of course I could be wrong.... but who seriously believes the CIA was

"caught napping" on this?

 

ewb

I would. The CIA has become totally reliant on SatInt instead of ground

intelligence. A modicum of security and they wouldn't have a clue.

 

Personally, I think that both India and Pakistan have finally

transcended

British rule and returned to their 8th Century cultural wog roots. I

expect

that they will target religious shrines first, population centers

second,

and military targets third.

 

Remember, in that part of the world, religious riots that slaughter

women

and children are looked at as the national pastime. We are talking

about

people who worship cows here.

Monet, why do you do that with your line wrap?

Total abject indifference to the View feature of Netscape. I don't

care, and neither should you, because the god of line-wrapping is one

of the 220,000,000 (official number)of Hindu dieties that is about to

dissappear in a blinding flash of radiation, much to the improvement

of the world in general and word-processors specifically.

 

After the bloody 'Indus and the Pakees assert their religious hegemony

on each other's ass, all text documents will henceforth tend to run off of the side of the screen like this...
