ATTENTION, citizens and residents of India and Pakistan. The United States, Britain, and most every other half-decent nation, is sending a steady stream of diplomats and functionaries to your capitals. The idea is that so long as we can keep your governments talking to us, they won’t be talking to their soldiers.
Should you hear on CNN that either New Dehli or Islamabad has refused to see any of them, I suggest getting out of the city and heading for the countryside; war is near.
No, I’m not kidding.
