I say this is bull shit of highest order, to hide pakistani behavior in general and their strategic plans in particular (choice of the hot sectors being because of need to pass terrorists through that sector) -- ASPERSIONS on serving Indian officers and soldiers putting their life on line is made.
Lol! Saying BSF based sources to a story usually adds mirch masala to a story = casting aspersions on ALL serving officers? Sanku ji, you are making another desperate attempt here to twist things that I say. This is the second cheap and dirty trick you have pulled after saying last time that I was "misrepresenting the views of other posters" and you know what happened the last time you pulled that trick. That same person who I supposedly "misrepresented" their views came out and confirmed what I said was correct.
Seriously, why are you so desperate to malign me?
You are now back peddling Sir, this is what you said
Spoke to a someone, he said BSF add mirch masala to the story usually but just those 2 sectors (poonch and krishna Ghatti) are a problem because both sides have aggressive commanders in those sectors.
saying that BSF adds mirch masla
is bad enough. (You couuld have said the Hindu source added mirch masala) -- so you went and denigrated the entire BSF.
And if that was not bad enough -- you claimed that the cross border firing is a issue of individual officers being gung ho -- instead of saying the reality viz " the pakis are nasty creature can not be trusted and will always probe Indian defences" you are giving a free chit to Pakis, and throwing mud of IA officers.Let me ask you, why are you so desperate to malign those in IA who resist and give Pakis are free chit?
In contrast this is what is really happening on ground.http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/a ... 559915.ece
“For all the good optics on India-Pakistan relations,” says Sushant Sareen, an expert at the Institute for Defence and Strategic Analysis, “the reality is you have one army deployed on hair-trigger alert, expecting infiltrating jihadists, and another on hair-trigger alert looking for gaps in its adversary’s defences. It is no surprise at all the clashes like these take place.”
“From our point of view,” a senior military official in Poonch said, “the Pakistanis were testing our resolve. We responded; not with a sledgehammer, perhaps, but with a large hammer.”
Even though a ceasefire went into force along the Line of Control in 2002, small-scale skirmishes have continued unabated.
There follows in above article a long list of attacks by Pakis on LOC for various reasons
(but according to ShyamD all fault of aggressive commanders onlee nothing to do with Pak or Paki army)
