Waiting for Robin Moor Durable Link to this BLOG
India-Pakistan: Waiting for Robin Moor

As I blog this, over a million troops have been amassed on the sensitive Indo-Pak border. India has laid down the measurable criteria for avoidance of war, which Pakistan has rejected. So one wonders what is the next move.

Flashback to 1941. The World War II has broken out. The Western Europe is begging USA to participate, but President Roosevelt just cannot enter the war unilaterally. The situation is very fluid. The Allied forces are praying for just one mistake on the part of Germans (to attack anything American), so America can join the war.

I see the same scenario in the subcontinent now. India is just waiting for another terrorist attack to declare the offensive. The situation is very fluid.

Musharaf knows this very well. Why else do you think he is reversing twenty years of Pakistani policies? A war will certainly leave him out of power.

The question is, how long will India wait for such a such a trigger? What if it never happens?

FYI, on May 21, 1941 Hiter did provide FDR the incentive to join WWII by sinking Robin Moor. All of us know what happened since.

Tennis Talk

BBC: Racist Aussie Cries Foul -- Top seeded Lleyton Hewitt (who uttered racial commenets during last years' US Open, which he won) exits in the first round of Australian Open. But not quietly.

Tennis Tip: If you have a problem getting your raquet in position during the serve, try this trick --imagine that the raquet is a telephone you are trying to answer and take your clenched fist towards the ear.Handy Tip
