26/11 – Mumbai Terrorist Attack.

My blog friend Jim Belshaw and I have been having a dialogue in his blog on the Gaza problem and my sidetracking into the India/Pakistan imbroglio has resulted in a very interesting insight from Jim. I quote him – “On India and Pakistan, one of the reasons that I put so much emphasis from time to time on due process, is that it provides a way to manage the heat to be found in situations such as this one.

If the outcome were, as an example, to be war between India and Pakistan, then was what was a tactical victory for those involved in the Mumbai attack would become a major strategic success.” (emphasis mine)

The dialogue about which I posted yesterday continues to be interesting and can be found at
