In other words, he and other like Ajai Shukla moron types are being too clever by half when they say "engage people of Kashmir" because essentially that means, engage TSP. I mean, anybody worth his salt will tell you that India has made a zillion overtures, conducted elections, told KMs that "anything but secession" is on the table, and yet, nothing has happened. Why? because the KMs are TSP's proxies and they are only parroting what TSP asks them to, and "engaging" them means they will make the obnoxious demand of tripartite talks. Which in the end means, India finding some way of handing over Kashmir valley to TSP on a silver platter.
The moron that interviewed him has no brains to ask counter questions to Perkowich like why no sanctions on TSP, Iran/NK style. They can give all kinds of advice to India because its no skin off their backs.
Of all the anal-yses, Fair didi's was brilliant and spot on as usual, not that we don't know, but we would be dismissed as "Hindu extremists" for saying what she does. Anyway, only point of disagreement I have with her is that in one of her pieces, she suggests that India must eschew bringing up Baluchistan because then TSP and the "world" will hold India and TSP at the same moral equivalence. This is hog wash. World already does holds India and TSP at the same level. Its essentially equal equal. India must continue to support Baluchis because if India backs off after Uri, that means rewarding TSP for its terror, something that even Fair Did says must not be on the table.
One fall out of India's inability to hit TSP, at least as of today for Uri and Patankot type attacks (and many more before that) is that slowly but steadily, a kind of deja vu sets in, and the traitors and bogus p!ssniks and pseudo secularists on our side will get the upper hand. They will start advocating pee-pee contact, equal equal (TSP has pigLeTs, India has RSS) mantra, some colonial p!ss institute from Norway will come out with a paper on "how pee pee on both sides" desire p!ss but for "extremists" on "both sides"; you get the drift. And has always been the case umpteen times, ModiJi or whoever, will make some cowardly gesture masquerading as statesmanship, and the cycle repeats.
