Re: Endgame of NaPakistan: How and what afterwards

Can you please advise what you were expecting? Let's see what's there on the paper. We have, GoI(Modiji Team+babus) + Armed Forces + Intel. What happened so far, * Pakis attacked our convoy - GoI gave free hand to forces. Intel helped them. * We did airstrike - Forces finished the task. GoI got the...

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

Karan ji, Let me clarify my earlier rants. It's nothing to do with proof or F-16. My issue is with the way things gone and how it goes in 2-front scenario. I expected something else. Our whole decision making process is very rigid. Not dynamic enough.

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

I am not worried about the retaliation, sir. My main issue is with the way we handled the whole thing. What will we do if it is some other big country? We can handle pakis just fine, but pakis will come as a part of big chini package next time. How do you think that will play out? I went through 2-f...
