What To Do With Kashmir

More land equals more power and more money. This is one fact that every nation knows. To the northeast of Pakistan and northwest of India, there is a small piece of land called Kashmir, and for the past 15 years, these two countries have been fighting over this land, with more than 40,000 lives being lost. This is not acceptable. Innocent people like us do not deserve to die just because they live in a different location. Recently, the prime minister of India, Manmohan Singh, recognized that the violence in Kashmir have diminished a bit. Therefore, he decided to cut down the number of troops in the northern region of Kashmir. But does this action really prove that India is trying to be as peaceful as possible? More actions leading to peace and harmony between India and Pakistan need to be done, even though they have very different cultures and religions. Instead of just making articles about these kinds of situations, the United States should step in to them and help find a solution leading to accordance between enemies. One suggestion to the world police is that we should arrange a meeting bringing together all the powerful people of both countries and find a solution to the "destiny" of the land of Kashmir because war in this land can not continue. Once again, war is not the solution.
