Childish to the extent that any kind of nationalism/patriotism is...
...if you don't realise the historical and cultural significance to the Kashmir problem you haven't read enough about it.
So what is the role of the international community - particularly the UN? I think a very dangerous, destabilising precedent would be set if nuclear warfare broke out in the subcontinent
"The West" doesn't care two hoots about two brown countries killing off a few more million men each, and its doubtful that either side would use nuclear weapons.
Except for the fact that it will decrease those countries economic competetiveness and allow some more billion pounds worth of arms sales. Witness as Britain sells India yet more warplanes...
The only intervention would be if the US thought that Musarrif would be destabilised, since they've put so much effort into propping him up.
Don't worry yourself.
