Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

We need to up our CSAR capability & invest more in disproportionate aids - would the F-16s even have pressed their attack home if there were 2-3 Prowler type aircraft behind the IAF CAP jamming their FCRs etc. The IAF is an offensive AF & casualties are given but we owe it to them to give t...

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

Yep. But let's be understanding of the fact that war always have casualties.

If TSP had upper hand they won't be asking for de-escalation ? They have got some unexpected response from IAF, no diplomatic support and beggar economy. They cannot afford to keep it going.
