It seems the US has only a superficial knowledge about India and Pakistan or rather, their approach to various issues which affect their mutual relationship. It is a well known fact that the root cause of all problems is the fundamentalists and their militant organizations, which are not in favor of a smooth relationship between the two countries. Be it Mumbai attacks or the perennial Kashmir problem, these forces play a vital role. But Pakistan makes it appear that the presence of Indian army in the border is the cause for tension.
The US readily accepts the Pakistan version as it is and advises India to deescalate on the border to ease tension and to enable Pakistan to divert its army to meet the challenges caused by terrorists. As far as Kashmir is concerned it is an integral part of India and the problem comes only when the militants from across the border are allowed to infiltrate into Kashmir. The US has to understand these minute problems before they advise India.
