Your political barometer isn't working very well, probably because you don't know how to read the signs, due to lack of experience and a preset idea that you w i s h to be true but isn't.

The fact is that nuclear weapons these days are deterrents and 'sabres to rattle.' The likelihood of their actually being used is practically nil. And the fact that the USA is in the area is very important, and I do believe that Colin Powell and Donald Rumsfeld will have more clout in this arena than you can imagine.

I would be very surprised if these emotional outbursts between India and Pakistan resulted in more than skirmishes and a lot of hot air.
