Kashmir: Nuclear war between India and Pakistan likely?

Kashmir: Nuclear war between India and Pakistan likely? | Als Return to Education | Scoop.it
Month after his meeting with Manmohan Singh, Nawaz Sharif said nuclear war is likely between India, Pakistan over Kashmir. He will meet Barack Obama in US.
Al Picozzi's insight:

Kashmir is still a hot spot in the world especially when thw two powers involved but have nuclear weapons and both seem willing to at least say they are still on the table in any conflict.  A long problem starting back when lines were drawn on the map by Imperial Britain.  Much like in Africa, however, nukes, at least as far as we know, are not on the table in Africa....yet.

Al Picozzi's insight:

Looks like the British wanted to make everyone mad.  Remember the old say "the sun never set on the British Empire."  Now you can see how that can be true.

Kate Middleton gives birth to baby boy

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a son, who will be the Prince of Cambridge
Al Picozzi's insight:

So what is the big hype about the birth of a boy into the British Monarchy that wields no real political power?  Why do we as Americans care?  Tradition and culture.  To be British is to support the Monarchy.  It is part of British beliefs and way of life to support the Monarchy as the British people have done for hundreds of years.  It is ingrained.  Even though there is no real political power the people for the most part still support the Royal Family.  As for us Americans, it is also part of our culture.  We started off as colonies in the British Empire and were so since the founding of Jamestown in 1603 unit the end of the American Revolution in 1783.  We still are interested in what happens there as we had are beginnings in Great Britain.
