Leveling allegations against Pakistan will not resolve terror issue and Americans must puff sense into the belligerent Indians and Indian government must urge the Indian media to play responsible role. But India is quoting Americans’ role and there is a possibility that it might follow that, which would be lethal for the region.
The Pentagon has sent Special Operations forces into Pakistan to attack suspected militant targets, partly in an attempt to stop the militants from crossing the border into Afghanistan, where they are helping fuel an increasingly robust Taliban insurgency. The White House has adopted a clear position to justify those attacks: if a country cannot deal with a terrorism problem on its own, the United States reserves the right to act unilaterally. Now India wants to do that, according to India media.
Then the Pakistan will be left with no option but to shift forces away from its western border areas and back to its eastern border. So its in the interest of Americans to control and diffuse the situation.
Once again, India should see through the smoke and try to clean up its own act and find the causes and effects of Mumbai attacks in its own backyard.
