Iraq War and Indian Monsoons

I am back with my two hometown uncles.  This time around, the conversation took place at my sister's marriage and was reported to me by my close friend Kayyes ( ).  This incident happened in the summer of 2003, a few months after the Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Man 1:  Guru, have you been reading the news on Iraqi war lately?

Man2:  Yeah, America thinks it is the world's police.  Moreover, they are not thinking about the consequences of the war on other countries.

Man 1:  That's true.

Now, Kayyes was following this conversation. So now my uncle turns him to him and says,

Man 1: Do you think the Indian Monsoons will be affected by the war on Iraq?

Kayyes was speechless.  Definitely, cause and consequence were of no concern to these guys.  Butterfly effect@work.
