The latest updates seem to highlight that a war is already started with Indian airforce striking in Pakistani soil and vice versa.

If they both continue in this path they might not play each other in the World Cup or one might withdraw from the Tournament.

Also they both have nuclear capabilities.

They could wipe each other out with Nukes
Would be interesting if India wiped Pakistan off the map. Would they get the land, if usable? Or will it be given to someone else to expand?

Neither Pakistan nor India will want to wipe the other one out. It suits the politicians interests to have a big enemy over the border - it helps distract their own people from how they are mismanaging everything.

Their World Cup will have blockbuster numbers if they play it.

Nuclear arms preclude the possibility of either side launching a massive assault against the other.

As it stands now, both sides have shot down a fighter, and PAK apparently has custody of 1 pilot as a POW. Its a very precarious situation.

Well I will definitely be calling out for work for the June 16 India v PAK game...only non BD game I'll be calling off for.

That is unless my buddy and I decide to just go to England...

The funniest thing about this, if there is a funny thing, is seeing Indians on twitter losing their shit over everything. They believe they are better than everyone else and asking for the right thing to be done, but India have one of the most arrogant teams around even if we take Kohli out of it, and their coach has a history as well.

They also carry on like their countries are some amazing places and their armies are supergods who should be worshipped. They portray them as these Avenger like heroes, when in actual fact its one shit fight that does not need to happen.

The umpires would need to be double checking those chest guards. :lol:
It’s not funny though, whilst one would hope cool heads don’t go near the nuclear option there’s going to be unnecessary loss of life and hardship. It cooks my brain that someone would strap a bomb to themselves and believe there’s a special spot for them. There’s no compromising with a religious fanatic, I’ve always wondered why people don’t ask the basic questions about their religions and learn a healthy dose of skepticism.
Our leaders mostly do the church thing, makes me wonder what they say to their imaginary boss on Sundays.
The world is so fucked it’s time for the Big G, whoever and wherever he is to make an appearance.
