Don't we have any AA guns/missiles at LoC? While I don't have any issue with Mig-21 taking on F-16(do remember that IAF had already practiced and surprised the US F-16s in an excercise few years back), its just that it felt like they walked into a trap which could have been avoided.

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

Its a shame the pakis were successful in luring our Mig21 across the border into a trap. However, if we stop now, it will appear to be a stalemate. And will not change paki behavior a bit, rather gives them a boost of confidence. They need to feel a bit more pain, which imposes cost on them. Else th...
