Civil Unrest in Kashmir/Possible Zombie Outbreak

Full Story from the Economist:

OK, maybe not zombies but look at the picture and tell me you'd didn't think that when you saw that guy.

In all seriousness, anti-government protests have erupted yet again in the Indian controlled part of the disputed region and regular Indian Army troops have been sent in to restore order. The Indian government has blamed an increasingly unstable Pakistan and opposition Indian politicians seem to be fanning the flames of discontent for political gain. As the two nations have fought no less than three wars there and have almost resorted to Nuclear War over the region as recently as 2002, I think this warrants attention. Even on a smaller scale this could mean the Pakistani Government could put more troops in it's part of the territory to respond to Indian movements, taking away resources from the Afghan-Pakistan Border and thus hampering NATO efforts in Afghanistan.

That's what I thought of first, too. Then I saw the picture and "I am not an animal!" from the movie The Elephant Man popped into my head.

If the 'Zombie Apocalypse' started today, how would you know somebody wasn't just filming a movie?

Not sure this is a disaster - that's been simmering for decades. I will read up more on it later this morning.

Edit 7:13@ 7am central: not a disaster. This is just the same old same old over there. Might become a disaster, but that's true in a lot of places.
Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?
