New Delhi: The first of the 3,038 cables sent from the US embassy in New Delhi have now been uploaded - and the details are likely to cause some strain between India and the US.

To begin with the US embassy seems to doubt India's Cold Start doctrine.Cold start is the quick military response strategy framed after 2002 Parliament attack.

The cable from current ambassador Timothy Roemer points out India showed no willingness to attack Pakistan even after the audacious Mumbai 26/11 attacks.

The cable says high level government officials have firmly stated, when asked directly about their support for Cold Start, that they have never endorsed, supported, or advocated for this doctrine.

The cables say frequent terror attacks suggest Pakistan is not worried at all about India's cold start doctrine.

US says no Indian government may ever implement Cold Start as it will be worried about Pakistan's nuclear response.
