I think families of terrorists should be given ultimatum and safe passage across LOC. The property land etc can be distributed among the informers etc ! d) no mercy to stone pelters going forward e) a check on maluvis and imams of mosque..anyone peddling wrong ideas is wajub ul katl .


Why even allow funerals? Its a practice I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND. And yes, the families need to be pushed out. Moulvis need to be made state employees and any child being indoctrinated should be taken into a foster care system/orphanage. Its not right that children are exposed to this BS.

But all of this can happen only after Pakistan is thrashed and the fence sitters can see that India has won the external war. I dont think its more than 5% of families that would be trouble makers. Rest will fall in line.

^^ all the chankian strategies above can be started/adapted but 1st step is thrash TSP very publicly, humiliate it as weak and reduce the prestige of its army and leadership among the Qaum. then we can debate and deliberate over the soft power options.

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

There are riff raff in Mumbai (probably the opposition) heading gullible crowd doing forceful bandh - closing down shops & shutters they want to force the GoI to intervene & force Army hand and somehow precipitate a failed strike within few days.

Already i have come across even Raza academy doing Bindi bazar bandh on the day of the attack.

So watch out for usual suspects suddenly shouting the loudest for a retaliation strike.

In that vein we expect level headed thinking in this thread.

Our strategy has to change on both the external and internal front.

1. Instead of defensive covert action we should now switch to offensive covert action on a continuous basis irrespective of the temp on LOC or Kashmir.
2. Start proactive de-weeding of black sheeps and mal-contents with extreme prejudice inside Kashmir

Public humiliation of Puki fauji is most important followed by systematic degradation of Pakistan as a state in terms of military, law and order, economy, diplomatic reach, etc.

In twitter one is already seeing relentless targeting of NSA Ajit Doval the guy most capable of serving this dish to pakis as if in a cross border coordination.
Those who are least intent in executing an actual retaliation will raise the temperature to such a level that nothing short of a Nuclear attack on Pakistan will do - and when it expectantly doesnt occur they will target the govt while pushing the people into disillusionment - they are going to use disillusionment to deescalate the public outrage against the Pakis.Every one should act against his strategy of BIF.

This is not life or death situation which requires hair-trigger response.

This Gaurav Pandhi seems like an out-an-out Congoon. Follow his Twitter handle to understand this guy and his intentions....
It seems that Congoons are pro-actively pushing the government to do something right now and at the same time targeting Ajit Doval and others.

The less said about Kavitha Krishnan, the better....

You better read and educate yourself before you mouth off. The reactors were sold to Iraq by France, which is not an east Asian country. Israelis pleaded to almost everyone including the "might of west" countries to stop Iraqis from the building reactor. Only when nobody, including your combined western powers, tried to stop the Iraqis from building a reactor, they opted for military action. In the raid, one French engineer lost his life. You read the aftermath of the raid, how many "western powers" supported Israel. Only during first gulf war, US acknowledged that had Israelis didn't knockout reactor, Saddam would have built nukes during the war. Saudis were overt enemies of Israel then and Iraq and Saudi equation was different from what it was during the first gulf war, so as one can guess how much US would have backed Israel completely. BTW Iraq had the support of USSR.

And don't take pains to imagine why I post something and try to put words in my mouth like evoke comparisions and all. I know what our military is capable of. I was more referring to political will, which I am sorry to say has been lacking with regards to pakis and kashmir.

I am all for "not act in haste", however we have had so many incidents, that GoI & Services should have an automatic response in place, with all the permutations and combinations war gamed.

Is someone telling me we did not expect Pulwama type incident to happen? we need to step back and think about our response? Utter nonsense.

If not on Feb 14, 2019, it would have happened on Feb 14, 2020 or 2021 or 2022. It would have happened regardless.

Ops Parakaram failed, not because of the mobilization timeline, becoz GoI had no plan to go to war. IA came up with Cold Start not to reduce mobilization time, but to give less time to GoI politician to re-consider their decision. It is about getting the GO-AHEAD.

Fire that first Brahmos, people will automatically mobilize.

We wait for couple of days more, then it gets in to the "coercive diplomacy" region. And we know what happens next..

I was unwell and not active in BR for quite sometime now. Pulwama attach and aftermath of commie newspaper responses forced me to come back here despite Login issues. Thanks for the MOD's help to restore access.

INDIA WILL RETALIATE STRONGLY, THE MESSAGE IS LOUD AND CLEAR FROM PM. We need to time our response at the time and place of our choice.
Not to force the GOI for immediate action. JAI HIND !!

I repeat last time from my side, this terror attack doesnt concern Israel .
If you really have a problem understanding the backing Israel has in the West it is not my problem.And this is again completely OT to this thread.

It would be a surprise, if we had carried out preemptive strike.

Post incident, an Indian response is not a surprise. Longer the wait, easier for Pak to defend and world powers forcing GoI's hand to call off.

All Pak has to do is publicly arrest Masood joker and put him in jail for safe keeping till this blows over... Watch what happens next..

The all party resolution lacks seriousness and reads like run of the mill routine stuff.

The PM in his speech didn't even mention the "neighbouring country". He restricted himself to saying "terror organization's".

Train 18 flagged off. Developmental works in Maharashtra inaugurated. Indian Ambassador from Pakistan lands here and poses for snaps smiling. Barring the removal of MFN, no other official announcement.

So looks like back to business as usual.

The most relevant portion starts @ 13:00 where he makes 3 points.
1. There are many plans of action.
2. We keep making [new] plans
3. Keep discussing and making changes as needed

Now, my reading of this titbit is as follows.
1. Need to choose from amongst a set of options.
2. Update plans in light of the latest information/wargame/across the border intel/etc.

Both of the above point make it *near* impossible to launch a Response on terror strike unless the plan calls for hits to fixed targets like ISI headquarters or Sargoda airbase. AFTER a choice from amongst the option has been made, it needs to be updated for the the latest intel from across the border.

IIRC, This is exactly what happened the last time even when prior intel of terror launch pad was available from day 1. GOI/Forces re-confirmed the target(s) BEFORE any offensive was launched. Why should it be different this time?

Pak already started moving terrorists away from bases close to the border and closing some camps. GoI don’t want this to turn into a propaganda exercise as Pak will claim India killed civilians

So goi carefully weighing options. Operation all out 3 is an option first
