India and Pakistan becoming friendly?

[Media Source*]

(Reuters) This sounds like good news to me!
A year of peace talks between India and Pakistan finally bore fruit on Wednesday when the nuclear rivals agreed to start a bus service across a ceasefire line dividing the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.

The bus agreement was just one of several reached during Indian Foreign Minister Natwar Singh's meetings with Pakistan's leaders, but it was the one that mattered most to Kashmiris whose families were sundered by the partition of India in 1947.

Hopefully they can square things out between the two of them. The last thing we need is another nuclear crisis on the Mideast-Asia continent (hint: Iran and North Korea). More details below.

Ironically it was only a while ago that these two nations were at each other's throats, nuke button and all. This bus route is a good thing that will help unite both cultures, especially those who were caught between the violence in Kashmir.
"It is a dream come true. The bus will reunite thousands of families. Something great is happening to blood-soaked Kashmir after a pretty long time," said Deen Mohammad, a university student in Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-held Kashmir.

"I am convinced that the cooperation between our two countries is not just a desirable objective, it is, in today's context, an imperative," Singh told a joint news conference held with Pakistan Foreign Minister Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri.

I agree...and wish them God's blessing as they continue to pursue peace in their region. Selah!
