ok, so lets get out of the forest and consider what this history predicts in terms of how India will respond to these latest Islamist attacks. My guess is that India has never had to fight its invaders. It just absorbs them into its huge population. I dont think this works very well in the mass communication age where a peoples pride can be wounded by the exposure of a national failing ( in this case, the unwillingness to risk your life in battle so that others can live ). India may overreact to these attacks. What with India and Pakistan having nukes, that overreaction could have terrible consequences.
