India would wipe Pakistan? Sure

"the Indian Defense Minister (George Fernandes) stated that yes, Pakistan might launch nuclear bombs and take out a city or two, but soon after there would be no more Pakistan. I recall that the tensions eased remarkably after that, and have not since come back to the same degree."

The tension didn't ease because of that statement. That's just your opinion and you are a fool if you believe that. Indians have been saying that since 1998. That was nothing new to a Pakistani. India would need thousands of nuclear bombs to wipe Pakistan. Pakistan is larger than Texas. Even if that if that happens, Pakistan won't just bomb just one or two cities. They will take at least 50 biggest Indian cities. All these were just empty threats since India knows it can't invade Pakistan and not pay high price.And the 'tension' was started by India last time when they tried to use US-Afghanistan war as pretext to put pressure on Pakistan by threatening war. They didn't achieve anything in the end.
