World holds breath as India shoots down drone over Kashmir - Pakistan plans response: INDIA has shot down a Pakistani drone over the contested territory of Jammu and Kashmir, military sources have confirmed.

India and Pakistan have already fought two wars since independence that were partially or completely over the sovereignty of the territory. The unmanned drone, which was reportedly carrying weaponry, was shot down by India’s Border Security Force (BSF) in Kathua district near the Pansar border outpost.

In a statement the BSF said: “Alert troops of BSF shot down a Pakistani Hexa copter drone carrying 01 M4 carbine machine (US Made), 02 filled magazines (60 Rds), 07 Chinese grenades.”

According to the Press Trust of India the drone was spotted by an Indian patrol at 12.40am BST.

It was allegedly then shot down 250 meters inside the Indian side of the border.

The BSF has launched an investigation to find out who the arms being carried by the drone were intended for.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the world is in the convulsive grasp of a frenzied war fever, which is escalating way out of control.

Pakistan and China are diplomatically, and militarily very close; the US, under President Obama, signed a military logistics agreement with India in 2016 U.S., India sign military logistics agreement

The article mentioning this states the following: " The United States and India signed an agreement on Monday governing the use of each other’s land, air and naval bases for repair and resupply, a step toward building defense ties as they seek to counter the growing maritime assertiveness of China."

Pakistan is not mentioned; but if India and Pakistan go to war, and China is militarily supporting Pakistan, while the US is militarily supporting India, this means that we may well be looking at a proxy war against China, through supporting India against Pakistan.

DANG! We need some "adults in the room" of geopolitics to get these tensions ratcheted down, and quickly, before something irretrievably stupid happens here., with things already on a hair's trigger.
