It was never an international issue - but briefing may have clarified that in view of the coming noises. Kosovo paranoia comes to mind.
Putting IAF and IN on alert suggests that there are standing orders for instant, massive action in case of any terror stunts. Like... pickup truck iedmubarak goes off... Karachi waterfront experiences Spontaneous Combustion.

Dollar bonds falling is interesting. Bond prices fall when overall interest rates rise relative to bonds' promised rate of return, per my madarssa econ. So why is Pak interest rate expected to rise? Because of increased investment risk?

^^ We should remember to thank Pakistani Tactical Brilliance as well. It was the Pulwama Bright Idea (PBI) that set the stage. I think Balakot and F-16 experiences put a damper on enthusiasm of both the jihad and the PAF, leaving PA/ISI rather alone. For the first time the "Strategic Depth" was seen to be way too shallow: Indian planes zoomed PAST Isloo and Abbotabad and struck targets pinpoint and there wasn't diddly-squat that Pak could do about it. "Response" using massive PAF "raid" ended in utter humiliation, bombs did not even hit a pakistan at the target area.

Otherwise there would have been a dozen attacks and massive LOC bombardments already. The "peace" is scary but maybe logical.

Actions against banned outfits key to exiting FATF list: US [August 07, 2019]

ISLAMABAD: The United States has asked Pakistan to show tangible and satisfactory actions against banned organisations and their leaderships to pacify more countries towards supporting its case to move out of the grey list of Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

A senior government official told Dawn that a US delegation was in Islamabad to have an independent assessment of steps, actions and measures identified during the Florida meetings of the FATF in June this year and the progress made by Pakistan since then.

<snip>

The US delegation had rather strong position on taking actions against banned outfits, their activities and movements of their leaderships and key operatives and wanted some visible progress by the authorities to address adverse opinions from majority of FATF members, the official said.

"rather strong position" is euphemism for a reprimand on not doing enough. Hajam did mention that IMF money is linked to FATF. For now lets watch the maneuvering. It is a different matter that the US might cut a deal with bakis tomorrow.

I have said this before. I don't know why CON did not realize that Modi, with this latest gambit on Kashmir, was asking a question not only of the US or Bakistan BUT of all political parties and more importantly each elected MP!

Rather than take an unambiguous pro-India stand, CON left its MPs to fend on their own. That was a formula for disaster. The MPs would by default move to protect their own standing within their constituency especially the rooted leaders. BJP would otherwise make mince meat of them in the next round. I don't know why the CON could not anticipate this before.

Nice to see the NYT showing off its pro PRC bent by publishing this bulls..t bingo article. Should the GOI continue to allow the NYT access to publish such anti- India hostility at the behest of the PRC when others like CNN and global times are doing so? Terms like hindu nationalist are racist and should be pointed out to the publications.

I think the PRC might try to incoporate bits of Ladakh into COK or try another Doklam to spare Pak blushes. Having a predominant Buddhist state adjacent to COP, that shares a wide variety of culture and beliefs with the Tibetans, whose, nation has been ethnically cleaned by the hans is very uncomfortable for the prc, hence we are seeing the western media in the service of the prc (nyt, cnn, wapo), and the saudis (Independent, Reuters)

This makes sense ... That bleddy Mudi might be laying the ground work for cutting the CPEC road at the point that it is closest to the LOC. How is that for a chanakyan?

I don't know about his full scenario but squatting on the closest CPEC road is definitely a possibility. At the very least hit CEPC hard enough to make it inoperable for 2-3 years.

IndoPacific_SCS_Info @IndoPac_Info
Its clear that #Pakistan plans a massive insurgency campaign on steroids against #India that would be backed by the military. India's response should be to retaliate with even greater force so that Pak has to pay an unbearable price for each of its actions.
IndoPacific_SCS_Info @IndoPac_Info

Such situation would be close to full out war in the Kashmir region and can easily escalate into a full war.
IndoPacific_SCS_Info @IndoPac_Info

#Pakistan is actually playing into #India's game. Pak's insurgency & supportive military actions will show Pak as the aggressor and India's retake of Pak occupied Kashmir in retaliation for such actions will be totally accepted. India already gamed the whole scenario.
IndoPacific_SCS_Info @IndoPac_Info

Thread: #Pakistan is behaving exactly as #India expected after the abrogation of article 370. They either do it or they lose face. India is doing the moves, Pak is only reacting and doesn't have any good choices. It's a lose - lose situation for Pak.
IndoPacific_SCS_Info @IndoPac_Info

Thread: If things go as expected, with heavy warfare in Kashmir, we could expect that #India will cut off the CPEC corridor road from #China into Pak, which runs through Kashmir and at one point, it's only 80 Km from the LOC. Look at the map
Image
IndoPacific_SCS_Info @IndoPac_Info

Thread: In such full scale warfare scenario, the end game could easily be a full or significant Indian takeover of #Pakistan occupied Kashmir and a direct land route from #India to #Afghanistan, something that India needs to counter the Pak-Taliban efforts in Afghanistan.

80 km is a universe away in those parts. Doesn't the Karakoram Hwy come within shelling range of Siachen? Time India took the lowlands and slopes around Siachen so that there is no need to put ppl on the high glacier.

JUST IN: Pakistan National Security Committee meet underway in Islamabad to discuss following counter options against India.

1) End diplomatic ties with India
2) Close the Wagah/Attari border
3) Increase troops at the LoC
4) International Campaign

Looks like they have options!

Would be fun to watch some baki channel AFTER the council recco is made. Clearly all the choices above would be deemed "highly unsatisfactory" by the masses and the anal-yst fed heavily on Slam, jeehard and martial superiority over yindus.

Dimran needs to watch his back now.

As the joke goes, in Pakistan when you don't want to do anything about an issue you a make a "committee" or a "commission".

Increased presence on LOC is a threat to US: means troops taken from AfPak border where PA fights herrowically holding back the Taliban from going into Afghanistan. If they pull troops from Balochistan, they will shoot themselves in the backside as usual.

Posters were put up by Paki extremists (probably Zaid Hamid and linked people) to highlight the Indian threat, but they did such a piss-poor job of it that they actually spread the Shiv Sena message as nobody looked at the tiny logo of the group that put it up on the top of the poster. :rotfl:
