New Delhi, India (SatireWire.com) – In what observers say is likely to further strain already tense relations between the two countries, India today sent a stern message to neighboring Pakistan by invading it.
Nearly two million Indian ground troops, supported by fighter jets and bombers, quickly overran Pakistan, which has been at odds with New Delhi over the fate of Kashmir. Pakistan was defeated and absorbed into India.
“Let this be a message to our neighbors that they must be serious in their crackdown on violent groups in Kashmir, or else,” Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee said at a press conference.
“Or else what?” he was asked.
“Or else… um…”
Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf quickly jumped on Vajpayee’s response, insisting it was a sign that India had run out of options, which may give Pakistan the diplomatic upper hand as the standoff continues.
