    where did the last poll disapear to i wonder ?? someone not liking the result or something ?

    i say, referendum, let the Kashmir people decide.
    there should have been a referendum in 1947.
    have a UN monitored ballot and that will be the end of it.
    Indian people on here seem to think Kasmmiri's want to be Indian, Pakistani's on here think they want to be Pakistani.
    I read in the newspapers they probably would choose independance.
    It would be interesting to know the truth.

    Who would win a war?
    Conventional war - India, probably quite easily.
    Nuclear war - nobody wins, both sides lose. also neighbouring countries suffer, depending on the prevailing winds at the time.
    the biggest humanitarian disaster since the second world war will ensue. madness.

    I exactly favour what Stevey said. Let's face it, India is a big country with a huge population. Hence, we also have more indians on the board then Pakistanis.

    The rightful path is that of referendum. Let the people of Kashmir decide what they want. Who are we to decide their fate.

    I'll try and state exactly what I said in the deleted thread, (not deleted by the moderators by the way).

    India will never accept Pakistani rule. Pakistan will never accept Indian rule, and an independent Kashmir is not viable.

    This conflict is draining valuable resources from two really rather poor countries. I wish the governments/NGO's/parasites would all realise this and sort it out. It makes me sick.

    ?

    DrakkenKorin:

    >>> no "Give The Land To The Kashmiris"

    There was on yesterdays poll.

    Clyde:

    >>> And you know this...... how?

    Of course I don't know. That is my opinion. Consider, a state with few natural resources, a semi hostile state on every border, everybody, rightly on wrongly, assuming that all the "local" terrorism stems from there, and most of the outside world not giving a damn?

    Believe me, I would love things to be fair, but tell me how an independent Kashmir could possibly survive without being another drain on "peacekeeping" resources, "development" grants and every other kind of corruption?

    Thats what the united nations is there for ,its there job to offer protection to the not so powerful states(at least in theory) And so i don't see why it should be a drain on their resources.

    Also i believe there is a UN resolution (am not 100% sure about this)that states that the fate of kashmir should be desided by the kasmiris themselves.
    I think its about time that the people that are most suffering from this should have their voices heard.I agree with stevey that it looks both pakistanis and indians want a piece of kashmir without even considering the kashmir's views.

    Well, if India agreed to a referendum and they voted for independace, India wouldn't suddenly invade, and since Pakistan is backing independance i don't see them invading either.

    Whether or nothey are economically viable..... i'm not even sure what that actually means, so heh I can't really form a conclusion .

    However there are certain resources within Kashmir, I believe (could be wrong, it might be part of Pakistan)there is a large hydro-electric dam there.

    There should be another poll option: "Kashmir? Isn't that a song by Led Zeppelin?"
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Havent we all had this before? and , at least this vote has a ' Who cares option' as this is getting tedious...as i have said before...who owns gibraltar? We at least will give the people of gibraltar the choice, but in Kashmir it will never work..Whoever wins the referendum, the other side will be unhappy and BOOM...

    Game Over


    its a sad state of affairs for this century, but who is gonna stop it.
    Such is life.
