Military Action Puts The Peace Between India And Pakistan On Pause
The U.S. has ties to both countries but seems to be staying out of it so far.
Pakistan was blamed for an attack on an Indian military base last week, which ramped up already high tensions — especially in the disputed region of Kashmir, where there's technically a cease-fire.
Still, Pakistan didn't seem convinced that India wouldn't use its armed forces. On Tuesday, Pakistan's military said it was ready for a strike.
If Pakistan does hit back, tensions could bubble over in the region and possibly pull in the international community.
But two world powers that could get drawn in — China and the U.S. — seem to be distancing themselves from the conflict even though both have strong ties in the region.
