If India and Pakistan have a falling out and move toward nuclear war, what would the US response be?

Would they side with India despite being allied with Pakistan for a longer time? Would they side with Pakistan despite the current strained diplomatic relationship? Would they even take a side? Would they try and broker a peace?

No country with nukes has ever been attacked. Iran knows this too. Make a mistake, and even a major prime minister or American President could end up in front of an International Tribunal.
