Re: Indian Air Forces Strikes Pakistan along with Ground Assault

My 2 cents, Khan is involved in this (somehow), and India bought both Khan/Bear in confidence before hitting Porkiland.

Panda/SA will not take their pawn/investment to be raped in plain sight.

We should not focus on Porkis, but on Panda/SA as pressure will come from there.

We should also factor in Porki allies, as they have a history of supporting it during wartime. Unlike 1999 war, lines are very well drawn now IMHO. 1.

We have to buy it, else they will sell S-400 to Porkies. Ironically Porkies will get old gen HQ-9s the day we will get first shipments of S-400.

It’s a zero sum game for big boys, but a big loss for us.

Not sure how S-400 will ever integrate with our current BMD, or even national AD network.
