Pakistan and India said Wednesday they had shot down each other's warplanes, in a dramatic escalation of the dangerous confrontation between the nuclear-armed rivals.
Pakistan said it downed two Indian jets in its airspace and captured two pilots, but insisted it does not 'want to go towards war' with its neighbour.
India confirmed the loss of one of its planes and said it had shot down a Pakistani fighter jet, in a conflict played out over the skies of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.
In a sign of the deepening crisis, Pakistan closed its airspace 'until further notice'. At least six airports were shuttered in India, and a vast area of airspace north of New Delhi was closed to civilian flights.
Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has since opened up for talks with Indian leaders over the latest Kashmir clashes, saying: 'If escalation begins from here, where will it go?'

We generally think Bible prophecy applies to the relations between NATO and Russia. However, prophecy can apply to India and Pakistan too. You may feel far removed from the issues and the conflict. Local news media in Toronto didn't even mention the thief in the night approaching. In a heart beat it can unfold. Turkey supports Pakistan. They are a NATO nation. If they became embroiled, NATO could be at war with India in a terrifying instant. It wouldn't take many nuclear weapons to destroy civilization as we know it especially if Russia sides with India their traditional ally. Of course, prayer is never wasted. We could repent and change our ways. We could be tested in the fire. The reset buttons are everywhere yet we stand by our wicked ways till the end.
