Danger in South Asia

Hallinan, Conn
September 2008
Foreign Policy in Focus;9/10/2008, p1
The author speculates that accelerating tensions between India and Pakistan, coupled with the increasing focus of the U.S. government on Afghanistan, might make South Asia the most dangerous place in the world. He says the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush has increased the tension with its proposed nuclear deal with India. He stresses the need for the U.S. to push for the de-nuclearization of South Asia, peace talks with the Taliban, and a stand-down in Afghanistan rather than escalating another war, arming India and pressuring Pakistan.
