First of all: this is a great game which I have played half a dozen times already(within the first weeks of owning it).
When a player (i.e. USSR) owns for example both India and Pakistan and his opponent plays the India - Pakistan war card? Does the even occur?
Indo-Pakistan is not a USSR event. So the event does not occur when the US palyer plays the card for Ops.
If the US player plays the card for the event, then the event occurs, of course.
And is it possible to use one of the USSR cards to remove US influence, if USSR controls both of the countries but US has some influence in one of them?
