Re: Indian Air Forces Strikes Pakistan along with Ground Assault

^^there were rumours on twitter, FWIW, that IN submarines were posted closer to Gwadar adn Karachi to confuse the pakis. I wonder where do people get this information and boast it on twitter.

Re: Indian Air Forces Strikes Pakistan along with Ground Assault

Seems like as I expected we did a strike on terror, called for ceasefire and let all the big boys know. Thrown the ball in Pak court if they want to respond. Given we have indicated ceasefire, US will now put pressure on Pak to not escalate. However for H&D among mango abdul, US will let PA ven...
