The 2013 Invasion of Pakistan is a war in 2013 between India and Pakistan after India was subjected to over twenty terrorist attacks in on August 18, 2013 which claimed the lives of over 2,500 people. The war would lead to India annexing and absorbing Pakistan.

The world faced an old problem again in 2013, a problem that had been dealt with five years earlier but was now again rearing its ugly head - Pakistan and India. Five years after the wars with India and the Commonwealth nations had left Pakistan's armed forces in ruins, the country had become almost the definition of lawlessness. While on paper a nation, Pakistan had in reality been broken into several different countries, controlled in many cases by people who were not real sympathetic to each other, and in every case were openly hostile to India. By 2013, Pakistanis fleeing the violence had flooded into India and Iran, and were increasingly becoming a problem for the authorities in both countries. Iran was trying hard to accommodate them and having some success (aid dollars from Europe and the US helping in this regard), but India was having problems doing so.

Worse still was terrorism. India had been hit over a dozen times by terrorist attacks originating from Pakistan between 2008 and 2013, each time being met with an Indian response, usually from their Air Force, which had by and large replaced their immense losses in 2008. Russia had been only too happy to allow India to make more Su-30MKI fighters, as well as selling over 120 MiG-35s to them. India and Russia, along with China, were quite happily repairing and rebuilding the losses the Indians had suffered, and as a result India was already moving back into the big leagues.

But on August 18, over 20 terror attacks hit India in one day, claiming nearly 2,500 lives. The worst was a truck bomb that tore apart Mumbai's main train station, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus,killing over 450 people. India was enraged yet again, and this time the government publicly angrily said that they were "Ending the threats from Pakistan once and for all time". Vikramaditya steamed north and quickly raced away, and once the news of the incident reached the fleet, all three nations of the nations involved in the combined fleet decided they had best to do the same.

On August 29, India invaded Pakistan with virtually its entire army, mobilizing almost 1.3 million soldiers for the invasion. Pakistan's unified army would have had a hard time handling that many - but divided as they were, they had no hope of stopping them. India's army was mostly professional, but despite this numerous incidents of quite open violence against Muslims turned a nasty situation into a really ugly one.

By early September, calls were being heard across the Muslim world for the world's Muslims to rise up and destroy India. India's takeover of Pakistan was condemned by virtually the entire world, and India's occupation of Pakistan was not liked in the slightest by Pakistanis, causing a bloody insurgency. India ignored this and was not ashamed by its actions, while many Indians felt just the same. This caused millions of Pakistanis to flee the violence, almost all of them going west into Iran and Afghanistan. Iran couldn't begin to deal with this, and Iran asked other Muslim countries to take these refugees in, saying that Muslims had a duty to help other Muslims. These calls, however, were almost universally ignored by other Arabs, who said it was India's problem. Facing a crisis, Iran turned to the West to try and help.

On October 10, 2013, Canada's Government voted to allow some 375,000 Pakistanis into Canada as refugees, and said that they would admit more if they could integrate this first big group. Australia on October 14 offered to take in some 165,000 refugees. The next day, South Africa added places for 80,000. Over the next couple of weeks, places were found for over a million and a half of these refugees. Britain took in some 250,000, which was in addition to the many people of Pakistani descent who already lived in the UK. All of the nations asked the new arrivals to settle in various places, trying to avoid them overloading the social systems of the largest immigrant destinations. South African authorities, despite having near riots at the idea of integrating many more people into a nation with nearly 20% unemployment, found that the refugees they took in wound up creating nearly 24,000 new businesses in 2013 through 2016, and wound up providing many new jobs. The same came to be true in Australia and the UK.
