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?

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