Default Kashmir attack: India 'launches strikes against militants'

India's army says it has carried out "surgical strikes" against suspected militants along the de-facto border with Pakistan in Kashmir. The operation was aimed at preventing attacks being planned by Pakistan-based militants, a senior army official said. He said "significant casualties have been caused to the terrorists and those who are trying to support them". Pakistan denies India carried out any strikes and says two of its soldiers were killed in cross-border shelling.

What's the worst that could happen with fighting over a disputed territory by two countries with a history of religious-based hate who both have nuclear weapons?

Why didn't they just do drone strikes? Everyone knows that those have no real consequences (at least until someone starts using them against the US.)
