I don't think anything will happen soon. abcc pointed out how attacks can be used to relieve IA pressure by drawing attention elsewhere, however if you think in that line of reasoning, an attack would have happened during the flood, because the Paki military forces will have been involved in flood relief and away from the border.
But at this point, any large terrorist attack will make it plainly obvious as to who's behind it and only increase pressure on Pak, so it wouldn't serve them any advantage.
With that said, I don't really know what tactical gains Pak was aiming for with 26/11 either so I could be wrong.
So think counter intuatively - either pak establishment was not behind the attacks, or they calculated that the Indian govt would not attack them. If first, we need to ask who was actually behind this attacks. Is second, we need to understand that this time paki tactical brilliance actually worked.
My opinion on this is a little bit of both - like Buddha's path of moderation
The thing is pakistan could not have hoped to keep India off its back if enormous pressure on India would not have been beared. There are two countries that can actually prevent India from going to war despite this level of provocation - US and KSA.
Both have our economic balls in their hands.
IOW, these three countries together could have possibly engineered 26/11, or at least Pak along with a section of US intelligence.
The biggest clue as to the motive of 26/11 is the fact that it was postponed from September to November
- this is open knowledge and published in various news agencies.So what changed between these 2 months? Obama's election.
Obama was the President elect during this time. GWB admin was still in place. War mongers in his admin engineered 26/11 so as to curtail Obama's options even before he took over as President.
Remember that Obama had promised to reduce troops in Afghanistan as well as bring 'moderate' Taliban into power to help with that. This is anathema to sections of US establishment that still thinks in cold war terms of military bases and keeping lines of communication open to oil sources.
If we look at these people from the point of view of a police investigation, they had the means (links to Jehadi groups), the motive (curtailing Obama's options and continuing afghan war), and the opportunity (Obama's election). The use of Daood Gilani shows that existing links were used in the execution of the massacre. Recall that during the Gilani fiasco, two accusations were being bandied about - 1. that Gilani is a double agent, 2. that Gilani is a US agent.
The debate stopped when the lesser of the two accusations became irrefutable - that Gilani is a double agent. This alowed US and Indian media to bury the other accusation - that Gilani is a US agent.
This was neither proved nor disproved - just buried.
