The Guns of December?

India has presented Pakistan with a demand:

to hand over 20 of its most feared criminals and militants, seeking co-operation with its neighbour rather than military confrontation in response to last week’s attacks on Mumbai.

Pranab Mukherjee, India’s foreign minister, said on Tuesday: “We have asked for the arrest and handover of those persons who are settled in Pakistan and who are fugitives of Indian law.

It’s comforting to hear that New Delhi wants “co-operation.” It’s less comforting when you think that this story reminded me first of President Bush’s demands on the Taliban in October, 2001, and Austria’s demands on Serbia in the summer of 1914.
