That plus the fact that we are paying people not to grow food when half the people in the world ARE STARVING…It’s difficult to do that and take the moral high ground. People need food provided for them when there are droughts or when they have no money to buy food, in America and abroad, and to pay people NOT to grow food is sacreligeous!!! It’s taking from the poor and giving to the rich, a reverse robin hood mentality. Why doesn’t anyone like us? Water rights will obviously cause friction between neighboring countries as clean water supplies go down and populations increase.

Pakistan a chunk of land chopped out of India to make heaven of Home less Indian muslim .Ever since they got the chunk of land they want more more and more , they need kashmir, raises the issues of Junagarh and Hydrabad and annexation of Bangladesh as well and has started a proxy war on Kashmir , Punjab and North East using Bangladesh and using the Network of Nepal, since nepal share an open Border with India. We should not give waters to these people and divert it to Rajasthan which has a Dessert region and aslo we need to keep a close look on the Dam construted on the Chinese Rivers flowing to india. Interconnecting Rivers would bring a new revolution in India.We dont want any conflict in future but if required then we can use River water as a MAJOR weapon and and bring them to knees.That what the next fate of Pakistan is, if it conflicts with India.

May God give some mind to Pakistan.

India is waffling on Kashmir and making no effort to make progress on peace talks especially given the political turmoil in Pakistan. Even on other less difficult disputed matters India has shown no flexibility. Perhaps the constant refrain by the Western media of India becoming the next economic powerhouse (a rickety infrastructure notwithstanding) seem to have made India too arrogant. Forget IPI pipeline, free trade and any talk of an artificial border separating two people belonging to the same culture and speaking the same language. There is too much distrust on both sides to make war on water a distinct possibility in the near future.

It is interesting to see what GE is working on.

My suggestion is to link this to the IPI pipeline some pak general gets smarty ideas to use IPI as leverage and the sluice gates fall on our side of the border.Seems fair,don’t you think?Our energy supplies guarenteed by your water supplies and vice versa.

As far as war is concerned, we’ve fought our last war decades ago. The best peace dividend to date, were the 1998 blasts on both sides, hate to say it. If it was India’s vision to end wars when they 1st launched this program in the Sub-Continent, decades ago, then accolades are due for such ‘fore sightedness’, if that. My fear is that it takes 2 to tango, and thus far it’s only one side, for the most part, that has given – and given. VALUABLE time has been lost while Musharraf had enhanced controls at his disposal. Though diminishing, it is still not too late to finish what was started. Our Indian friends, you may well have to wait into oblivion for the next man with such courage to surface. For the sake of our destitute masses, wake up, I beseach you, wake up. Tomorrow maybe too late.
