as they say never engage the same enemy for too long in the same fashion.
The game is different now. Pak does not have state support from the western nations anymore
K militants will have to slow down. Geo political scene is changing
India has to attack the militants and their camps directly. It will take some time.
Militancy all said and done is on back foot and we are much better placed diplomatically to trash any OIC or UNSC resolutions, the more we delay the more China/CPEC dynamics will play a role, once CPEC is complete and Pakistan is 35th province of china, the arc of evil(Communalism and Communism) will increase its influence and assertiveness in our matters including J&K article 370
PS: Militarily i never think it was a challenge to contain it or reduce it to manageable levels apart from the time factor
This will blow up once the global trade reduces
China will abandon lot of expansion once it gets tough without support from western nations on trade
