This would be spine chilling for the Pakistanis, who depend so heavily on the US munificence to simple exist as a Nation, even though a bit ragged nonetheless.US warns Pak of consequences if any terror attacks happen during Obama's India visit
Ahead of President Barack Obama's visit to India, the US has asked Pakistan to ensure that there is no cross-border terror incident during the trip and subtly warned of "consequences" if any such attack is traced back to the country.
Obama will travel to New Delhi later this week to attend the Republic Day parade on January 26, the first US president to do so. The US and Indian security agencies are taking extra care for Obama as he will be on an open air platform at Rajpath for more than two hours, witnessing the parade.

It is believed that the US has asked Pakistan to ensure that there is no cross-border terrorism or even attempts of it during Obama's trip. Pakistan has been subtly warned of the "consequences" of any terrorist attack during Obama's trip if that is traced back to their country, sources said. The warning has been issued keeping the track record of Pakistan-based militant groups that have carried out attacks in India coinciding with high-profile visits from the US.
Militants had shot dead 36 Sikhs in March 20, 2000 in Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, coinciding with the visit of the then US President Bill Clinton to India.
The US forces in Afghanistan are also keeping a close eye on the activities of the terrorist groups in the region.
The US Embassy in Pakistan too has been alerted.
Ahead of the presidential trip, there is an unprecedented level of intelligence sharing between India and the US.

Her other benefactor., China, too would be displeased as it will skew the chemistry in Pakistan and would seriously affect China's multifarious on going activities since 'consequences' have many meanings and many avenues to implement and all will be unpleasant for the fabric of Pakistan.
The US' long arm is nothing to overlook given their tenacity to impose her writ.
Already, it is seen that the US and the West are tiring of Pakistan and its monkey business wherein they have told Pakistan that it would be wise to hand over Lakhvi, the mastermind of the Mumbai blast to India.
