Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

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.
