Will go to war counting on a paradox
Praveen Swami warns that the crisis in Balochistan may drive Gen Musharraf to the wall, causing him to initiate another Kargil in order to save his skin.
Could a General this time be sacrificed for the Pakistani military’s errors of judgment? Perhaps. General Musharraf is, more likely than not, aware of the abyss that lies ahead.
In a desperate moment, a desperate man could well undertake desperate actions, driven by the desperate belief that a small war in South Asia is an acceptable price for survival. India’s strategic establishments will have to watch the events in Pakistan with the greatest possible care â€” and respond with the greatest possible caution. [The Hindu]
