I surely hope not

The current top story on Al Jazeera English is that:

Pakistan media is reporting that the country’s military is on high alert over a possible strike by India’s forces.

Meanwhile, other media outlets, such as the BBC and Voice of America are reporting that the Indian Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee has been demanding more from Pakistan in dealing with terrorism.

I really hope that there is not open war between these two nuclear powers, especially as we have troops in neighboring Afghanistan and open conflict would have serious negative effect for India, Pakistan, and the US, while bolstering more militant sectarian forces.
