My near constant reply to the things I now read goes along the lines of "well, we sure live in interesting times." It'll be hard to die of boredom in 2019 or 2020. I guess that is one cause of death which seems to be decreasing, so there is some good news.

The area haas been a bone of contention since before I was born.

The diff now is that the mooks have nukes. Bad JuJu all the way around.

Kashmir has been a flashpoint since Imperial Britain divided India in 1947.
I guess they just forgot about the previous thousand years of conflict before that?
These days of dust
Which we've known
Will blow away with this new Son

But I'll kneel down wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground

Well, their statement isn't wrong: it has been a flashpoint since '47. Just also a few centuries or so before that as well.
