The 1965 war teaches us that war by escalation is a real possibility. Despite clear threats, Pakistan never believed that India will ever cross the international border. In the age of nuclear deterrence, this failure to deter Pakistan is the central lesson of 1965, says Colonel Anil Athale (retd).

Would welcome constructive Iranian role in any Syria talks: Angela Merkel 31.8.2015 DNA: Money
Germany would welcome Iran's participation in any negotiations aimed at ending the civil war in Syria, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday. Her comments, at a news conference in Berlin, reflect changing European attitudes towards Iran since it agreed last month to curb its nuclear work in exchange for sanctions relief. Previously, most Western powers were reluctant to see Iran have any role in diplomacy over the Syrian crisis where it is the strongest supporter of President Bashar al-Assad. Asked whether she thought Iran could play a constructive role, Merkel said: "I think Iran has a lot of influence over what happens in Syria. And everyone is welcome to participate constructively in the negotiations." She added that Iran's opposition to Israel needed to change. "It is not acceptable how Iran continues to talk about Israel," Merkel said. "It is a disappointment that there has been no change as far as the recognition of Israel goes." Israel opposes the nuclear deal, saying it will not succeed in ...

Iran nuclear deal will 'fuel terrorism', says Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu 30.8.2015 DNA: Mumbai
The deal to curb Iran's nuclear programme will bolster Tehran's ability to fund global terrorism by providing the Islamic state with "billions of dollars" in sanctions relief, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared. "Iran will get hundreds of billions of dollars from sanctions relief and investments to fuel its aggression and terrorism in the Middle East and North Africa and beyond," Netanyahu - who is bitterly opposed to the deal agreed by Iran and world powers in July - said during a visit to the Italian city of Florence. The Israeli leader is on a tour of Italy -- his first major overseas visit since being re-elected in June. Speaking ahead of a meeting on Saturday evening with his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi he compared the threat posed by the Islamic State jihadist group with the "far more serious threat...posed by another Islamic state, the Islamic state of Iran and specifically its pursuit of nuclear weapons". Israel was not opposed to Iran having a civilian nuclear program, ...

Iran president opposes parliament vote on nuclear deal 29.8.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday he opposes a parliamentary vote on the landmark nuclear deal reached with world powers because terms of the agreement would turn into legal obligations if passed by lawmakers. Rouhani told a news conference that the deal was a political understanding reached with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany, not a pact requiring parliamentary approval. The deal also says Iran would implement the terms voluntarily, he said. The historic deal calls for limiting Iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting economic sanctions. "If the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is sent to (and passed by) parliament, it will create an obligation for the government . it will mean the president, who has not signed it so far, will have to sign it," Rouhani said. "Why should we place an unnecessary legal restriction on the Iranian people?" A special committee of parliament has already begun studying the deal before putting it to a vote. But the legality of ...
