Anne Applebaum explains in Slate why the United States is in a tough spot in the conflict between Pakistan and India. India has the same case against Pakistan that we had against the Taliban, and they have a better case than Israel does against the Palestinians. We can’t offer India our unqualified support, though, because we really need Pakistan’s help right now if we want to finish off the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Of couse, it’s also in India’s best interest for the US to erase Al Qaeda because they were big supporters of the insurgency in Kashmir, too. I honestly think we’re doing the best we can in this situation, geopolitics are hard.
