We do not set examples for others.
Of course we do. If it's good enough
for us, it's good enough for India to
hit Pakistan or any other hot spot you
would like to bring up.

Our "example" will not affect India's decision to attack Pakistan. India will calculate the benefits and consequences rightly or wrongly for itself. US reaction will be a large part of the calculation. US willingness to jump on a country preemptively would caution India that US might just jump on India for initiating a nuke exchange or causing Pakistan to fire its nukes. Liberal ideals do not govern the actions and reactions of nations, not even liberal nations after they have been burned a couple of times.
