|what would happen, if there would be a war between two countries (let's say india and pakistan) and pakistan would release nuclear weapons either:
-on indian troops on their own (pakistani) soil
-an indian city
What would be an immediate international response and what would be a more long-term one (esp. to the first case, which is basically a
defensive measure to an invasion)? and let's say international pressure would prevent india from retalliation and brought the war to a temporary halt.
if the pakistan would get nuked (from the usa - i've seen several posts here about such action in an event like this), what would be the legal justification for it (because we can is not an answer). that question applies to both first and the second option separately.
let's say that the nato deployed peace keepers and india and pakistan didn't want to upset them, finished the war and drew new borders at the position of the caesefire.
what would be the long term consequences in A and B scenario?
would there be sanctions (for both countries even?)? maybe nuclear disarmament (of both countries?) forced by the international community (what about if india used their weapons too)?
history has shown us that sanctions don't work as advertised and i've seen a youtube video of an US AF general telling the same about iran (don't have the link, will post it shortly). i suspect that pakistan would lean against china even more, but i don't know about india (outsourcing and whatnot).
some different measures (long term)? just leave them be so that they kill each other if they want?
oh, and the scenario in the beginning is:
pakistan attacks india which defeats them and pushes their forces into pakistan (south of islamabad, for instance, where there are not any cities, so that the B option is plausible)
