    Say Pakistan decides against trying to take Kashmir in 1965 for whatever reason

    What would be the impact on Indian-Pakistani relations and their relations with powers outside the sub-continent

    How would a lack of a war effect Pakistan's internal politics and economy

    Better overall US PAK relations

    Possibly less Pakistan dependent on chinese military aid

    Really not much change in kashmir

    Pakistan economy took a nose dive after bhutto nationalization schemes and loss of US aid

    Internally military still would be dominant

    Will india still intervene in 1971 in east Pakistan? Not sure

    India economy growth in 1960 never going to hamper and India will not close its market for American good and businessman and will easily import technology to produce indigenous weapons, not waste a large amount of money to buy Soviet arms, which primary left to develop heavy industry in-country, in next 7 years India will complete for l modernization of its army after defeat of 1962 from China when it feal need of modern weapon against its world war era arsenal, A India which does not closely associate with Soviet as it after1965 war in OTL, will gain support from western countries .

    IIRC they were following the same development plan South Korea used before the 65 War derailed it.

    Given Pakistan's larger population, issues with Bengalis, different geography, and the Afghan civil war and refugees would that necessarily be the case?

    I would believe so, as Pakistan didn't have a Korean-War analogue in its history and India isn't like North Korea.
