Description

The Wall Street Journal looks at the potential impact that territorial conflicts between Pakistan and India can have on the "America's war on terrorism." The story reveals that even though the U.S.A. has Pakistani support for its global alliance against terrorism, Pakistan "remains a dangerous crucible for extremists processing a jihad on their own." A recent example, pointed out in the article, is an explosion in Indian-controlled Kashmir, a region in which both India and Pakistan vie for power. A major finding, based on interviews with American military analysts, is that Pakistani Kashmir fighters have been trained in camps in Afghanistan, established by Osama bin Laden. "This move cemented Pakistan's support for Mr. bin Laden's hosts, the fundamentalist Taliban rulers of most of Afghanistan," the Journal reports.
