Pakistan put its military might on display Wednesday with the country's prime minister and the army chief traveling to a strategic area close to the border with archrival India to observe a military drill.The timing of the drill, which took place in the Khairpur Tamiwali desert area near the district or Bahawalpur, was particularly stark – just three days after Indian fire in Kashmir killed seven Pakistani soldiers in a new escalation between the two rival nations.The latest Pakistan-India escalation was set off by a deadly September attack on an Indian military base in the India-controlled part of Kashmir. India has blamed Pakistan-based militants for that attack and others, charges that Pakistan denies.The army chief, speaking to the troops after Wednesday's drill, said that he does not believe in hiding troop casualties.
