India Vows to Keep Troops on Border With Pakistan (washingtonpost.com)

Vajpayee says “we don’t want a war,” but you could fool me. It looks like Pakistan is making good-faith efforts, under difficult conditions, to round up the radicals. (In stark contrast to the Taliban’s stonewalling after Sept. 11.) India needs to back off a little and give them a chance.

India is also pretty much ignoring President Bush; I didn’t vote for him, but ignoring the President of the United States is not done.

Officials said today that they were drawing up plans and requisitioning supplies, including large rolls of camouflage cloth, to shroud the Taj Mahal, a 17th-century mausoleum that is India’s most famous monument.

I have no idea why camouflage cloth is useful in this situation. I don’t think you can hide the Taj, it’s pretty big.
