How the world sees the India-Pakistan conflict

The Onion is a satirical parody ‘newspaper’ which is published in print and on the Internet that reports both real and imagined stories and makes fun of the earnestness of the mainstream news-media, the gullibility of its readers, and the general state of the world we live in. However, as with all satire, it tends to pack some hard-hitting truths in its imagined coverage of events.

Below is one hillarious example of The Onion’s craft. It is fictitious only in that these people probably are not real and never said this; at least not out loud. But the way they view and interpret the India-Pakistan conflict (here) is really not that far from how much of the world actually sees it. Of course, this particular piece is some years old, when tensions were higher than they are now; however, the international attitudes it depicts are timeless.

Enjoy. Smile. And, then, think hard.

    I wish Pakistan and India never fought, they’re neighbors and should at least attempt to get along…

    I love the comment from the Systems Analyst that Hindus can look forward to reincrnation, and muslims get an eternity of honeyfigs on dying anyways – so why be afraid of the nuclear war!
    Sometimes I get the same feeling from friends and family when talking to them about the conflict. Either that, or they believe the two parties are too buzdil (timid?) to actually engage in a nuclear war.
