Start sinking merchant ships.
Intrude into their air & sea space.
Stop their merchant ships in International waters and search.

Refuse landing to all civilian airliners that have ever touched pak soil & their aircrew same for ships.

Unfortunately, with the USA getting ready to leave Afghanistan, time has run out. Attacks will only increase from here on out as resources are freed up in Afghanistan.

There is an appropriate time and place for revenge. It will come and there's no need to get worked up if nothing happens in the next few days. Some sensible steps we can actually take (in addition to military options):

1. Walk the talk on the Indus Water Treaty. Pakjabis are terrified of losing access to the water which nourishes their beloved Punjab.

2. Inform the ICC that India will not play Pakistan at the cricket world cup. India owns cricket. Let's see how the other cricket playing nations react to an Indian boycott of the tournament. Either we play or Pakistan plays.

3. Withdraw MFN status for what it's worth.

4. Replicate the US model of country sanctions. Any MNC doing business in Pakistan will not be allowed access to India, one of the most lucrative markets in the world. Would Suzuki and Unilever really want to have anything to do with Pakistan in such a situation?

Cancel issuing visas to any TSP citizens. Stop all aman ki tamashaa stuff. No cultural activities or exchanges of any kind with that country. Start throwing our weight (it ain't that small any more) in all International fora to not only punish Pak but also penalize countries & orgs that do business with them.

Our heart goes out to the sad loss of brave CRPF Jawans in this attack.

Yes the baki backed jehadi suars with support from cashmere baki wannabes scored a big one.

This will continue until the baki state is dis-membered. And a national consensus has to evolve on the goal to dismember the baki state. The means is different. But once everybody is on with the national goal of dismembering the baki state then the ways will come.

All very doable and immediately, but let's see if any of it happens. There are many subtle ways of implementing (pt 4). e.g. security tax on MNC's we need in India but who do business in Pak and a ban on those we don't need. Start with Chinese firms. In fact there has to be an additonal import duty on all Chinese imports since China is a sponsor of the JeM. (I wrote an article on Chinese imports in the latest Indian military review).

This is time to act, no ABV type 6 month long deployment. Its been 20 years since Kargil......deploy that cold start now!

It must be clear to Pukes that the killing indians would not go unpunished. No surgical strike in the dark of night.....full blown open air strikes on PoK. I want to count casualties on their sides in 4 digits.

100% sanctions on all Pakistani entities and all links. Complete mining of boarders and active policy of coercion must be announced now. Close the consulate and kick out all the turds off of our soil.

How do you know Bakistanis are ready for retaliation when we do not even know how GOI will retaliate?

And how is Modi's "tough image has taken a big dent" related? If at all, people are hopeful that the GOI will retaliate. And the #mediapimps and the CONgoon pidis are already at it gaslighting the prospect of retaliation.

Understandable.

But how are you or me going to measure the strategic and tactical impact of any "retaliation"? And if we measure it differently are we going to go into rona-dhona mode?

I think instead of retaliation, use this as a consensus to split bakis into smaller bakis warring with each other.

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.

Doing a retaliation when MBS is in Pak would be perfect. Make him cancel his trip and run off. Teach TSP a humiliating lesson that its donor master wont stand by it.

I hope the counterattack is executed ASAP. I know reacting at 'the time and place of our choosing' is important, but sometimes immediate counterattack is also critical. It shows that we are awake and ready to counter whatever is thrown at us, and will be a strong message to both pak and china that any misadventure on their part will be deadly

It will not be Balochistan
It Iwill not be another pig hunt in POK
Both predictable.and they will be waiting.

Pak demonstrated they can still do....to visitors and friends.

What will definitely be needed though is something to make Chinese fume. Cpec infra is my guess. It sends a strong message that India-pak hyphen is old.

Saudis will run like pigs into their palaces

Yes, we need to dramatically over react to make our desires something that not just Pakistan, but also other extra regional players need to take into account when wheeling and dealing in this region.

Right now, the US, Israel and SA/UAE appear to have made their peace with Pakistanis, who will be relied on to run the jihad against Iran. The price will be bribes and also the Pakistanis running Jihad in India. This is not something the US wants, but will acquiesce to, as it has done in the past.

Our desires and peace is not being heard at the table. Time to create some room at this table and upset the whole ****** apple cart.

Who will believe them even if they play victim? Everyone knows India will retaliate one day. It was a question of when.

Here is my view.

Visible & declared, air strikes on Mudrike and other terror places.
Non-visible, heavy air strikes on PA position in POK.

Announce only the Mudrike strike and tell the world we have hit terror. If Pak retaliates we will act in self defence.

The world(read US) will be under tremendous pressure to prevent escalation and force a cease fire. Till the ceasefire, if Pak attacks, give it back.

This is the short term plan.

It’s been 6+ hours since the attack. Why has there not been retaliation yet? The CCS should have had standard procedures in place for just such an event. Where are the mushroom clouds and fast neutrons over TSP? We’re waiting....

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.

Twitter experts profusing knowledge, without doing a day's job. If VBIED is easy to detect, you wouldn't have so many of them hitting US forces in Iraq.

It is not an IED, which stays in one place once detected.
