Re: Pulwama Attack

Shooting at the protesters apart, perhaps more effort into crowd control devices like pepper bomb variants etc. Logistical nightmare. In addition to their regular ammo, troops now have to carry crowd control equipment. Its impossible to do COIN & Policing and Winning Hearts/Minds at the same ti...

Re: Pulwama Attack

Right now IMHO economically we are not prepared for war and its aftermath , militarily as well (no comprehensive BMD , antique weapon systems etc ). We will NEVER be prepared, let me tell you that.

Re: Pulwama Attack

On social media, its very clear the decades of G-family, leftist brainwashing has left many people servile and virulently anti-Hindu.

Modis biggest weakness and failure (if I may call it that) was to allow the leftists to spread their poison unchecked even during the past 4 years.
