One key issue that keeps troubling me is that no one from the Indian media, has brought up the simple issue of "what will Pakistan put on the table to earn this?"
That cannot be asked because the answer is obvious: TSP will put nothing and certainly not their only and vital trump cards against India: pigLeTs and nukes. And India will have egg on its face if it dare stares in the mirror and asks this question. More self satisfying to pretend that there is a Chanakyan strategy in play.
From the Indian side, the sell out is complete, mostly US dictated, and roughly runs along these lines: Ignore and absorb the punches TSP has delivered. You are so big that you can take it, after all, you are not God's own white children like us where every life counts. Make piss with TSP and we will see what we can do. And if you don't, we can make life hell for you. You have enough dirt underneath your feet (Modi et. al), and we can easily make you look as bad as TSP if not worse. And to a large extent US already has with its pigLeTs == "Hindu extremists" narrative.
The Indian elite is complete synch with the above characterization of the ground situation. This suits TSP just fine, because going along with this plan preserves their long terms strategy. They will strike when the iron is hot. Jab Loha garam hai, tho hatodi maar dho. Am I accurately capturing Gabbar Singh's dialogue in Sholay? And you know TSP generals and ISI are big fans of Bollywood.
