Brontes: Neither side has anything to gain in a nuclear war. No way it will happen.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: If you plan for your population to be nonadecimated, then a two-week supply could last quite a while.And yes, I just made up a term for killing ninety percent of people with utter disregard for both math AND etymology.
kmmontandon: Brontes: Neither side has anything to gain in a nuclear war. No way it will happen.Because two countries have never gone to war with no realistic gain at the end of it.
cedarpark: But it's India. Two weeks of food for Americans can last six months in India.
Kevin72: OK now it's time for the massive song and dance scene
GAT_00: Well that's encouraging.kmmontandon: Brontes: Neither side has anything to gain in a nuclear war. No way it will happen.Because two countries have never gone to war with no realistic gain at the end of it.Eisenhower wanted to nuke Korea because it was a cheap way to wage war. LeMay rather famously thought that not only was a nuclear war winnable, but we'd be smart to fire first. Both were military experts. Now add a religious war into that, and you have the possible thoughts of Indian and Pakistani generals.It's completely plausible they nuke each other. Or rather Pakistan nukes India after they get their asses kicked by the Indian military.
anfrind: Although I wouldn't put it past the religious fanatics in charge of Pakistan to be just as ignorant of the long-term consequences of nuclear weapons as Eisenhower would have been back in the day.
debug: What exactly is in Kashmir that these people want so badly?

Seth'n'Spectrum: If you are preparing for a nuclear war, you are part of the problem.The Bush-Obama policy of turning a blind eye to India's nuclear ambitions could prove to be the greatest foreign policy mistake of the past decade. Punching holes in nonproliferation regimes, encouraging both India and Pakistan to subsidize the U.S. military industrial complex, and viewing the subcontinent purely through the eyes of the GWOT were all serious, serious errors.
Buffet: Whaddaya expect from a buncha idiots that shun beef?
WeenerGord: How would global warming be affected by the nuclear death of some 5 billion people?
Mad-n-FL: WeenerGord: How would global warming be affected by the nuclear death of some 5 billion people?Nuclear winter would oppose global warming....
Relatively Obscure: I have it on good authority that salisbury steaks alone will last for at least 200 years. Not to mention the Blamco Mac and Cheese.

Lunchlady: Does Pakistan even have an effective delivery method for multiple nukes at once? Does India for that matter?To me that's the biggest deterrent to their use of nukes, they could only fire off a few and only locally before they lose capability and the rest of the world comes down on them like a sack of hammers.
garkola: What about the cows?Think of the cows!
fisker: Brontes: Neither side has anything to gain in a nuclear war. No way it will happen.If they are stupid enough to think two weeks of food will last them, well, you never know what they are capable of.
