8/9/19 Eric Margolis on the Dangers of Nuclear War Between India and Pakistan

Scott interviews Eric Margolis about the recent legal change that will now allow non-Kashmiris to buy land in Kashmir. Kashmir is majority Muslim, and has been the subject of territorial disputes between India and Pakistan for years. The fear is that the legal change will allow the Indian government to slowly annex pieces of Kashmir away from (at least nominally) independent control by sending settlers there. Scott stresses the added danger that since both sides of the conflict have nuclear weapons, all it takes is one use of a tactical nuke by a general on one side to open up an entire war based on the use of nuclear weapons. Needless to say this would be a catastrophe.

  • “India’s “Trump” Wins Big, by Eric Margolis” (The Unz Review)
