What almost every one is missing is, there was a similar attack in Iran, on an IRG bus yesterday that killed nearly 30 IRGs. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/13/worl ... mbing.html
Such coordinated, identical attacks dont just happen. This was cleared at the highest levels by the Pakistani state, confident that the trumpanzee is going to shield them from the wrath of Indians and Iranians to salvage the American surrender in Afghanistan. It looks like the new strategic gambit from Pindi in the post US surrender world.
The US and the Trumpanzee are acting in their interests. We should act in our own.. If we dont dramatically over react, we will be drowning in blood by the same time next year.
I actually saw that news in my feed before Pulwama attack. Afgan angle..?
If we are not sending out Jet tonight, it aint happening later.
In my mind, the US/UAE/SA/Israel have decided to take on Iran and get out of Afghanistan because Afghanistan is pointless in their minds. Even if they succeed in Afghanistan, what will they get? Its useless as an economic prize, useless as an offensive weapon.. To use it as an offensive weapon needs it to be in a Talibanized state, so where is the win?
Indians dont understand that Israel (and KSA, UAE) see Iran as an existential threat, while its in a defacto alliance with the Sunni powers. In our imagination, Iran is this goody goody power because they have not attacked India. But in reality, its tweedledum and tweedledee.. Hezb and IRG are operating across the entire middle east, where ever there is a shia population.
To the extent that Sunni militias attack the west and Israel, its a price they are willing to pay to keep the IRG & Hezbollah at bay. 20 years of safety after 9/11 has convinced every one that domestic terror spectaculars can be prevented by DHS. And attacks against India are not even a part of the cost benefit analysis that these assholes are doing.
To take on IRG/Hezb/Iran, Pakistan is needed to provide the foot-soldiers for that. Pakistani attacks on India is, for them, a sad side effect. Unless India shows, it can upset the whole bhain chod applecart, we wont be a part of the calculation.
Enough of pin pricks on the LOC. Haramzadon ke munh me hath daal ke antadi bahar nikalo.. warna pulwama to trailer tha.. khoon ki aisi nadi bahegi, sir upar uthana mushkil ho jayega.
