People. This is the pak arms thread. I wanted to report the post that started the series of OT posts but someone has already done that.

I think a strong admin butt kick is needed to clean up this thread. The China mil thread too is OT.
Whats the point of having different forums if we put our food, crap and vomit all in one thread?

Pakistani soldier handed back to Pakistan army by Indian army.

Septimus,

You might have your own opinions, but that is no reason to ask somebody to die. Chaanakya, tried to convince you of something, if you want to present opposite opinion, that is fine, but to ask him to jump to his death and calling other by names makes you look extreme and sound fanatical.

The trooper has been returned and in all likelihood will be dead soon.
 
To pretend to know world history and claiming to understand religion is a tall order. What needs to be looked at, the for the purposes of this thread is what is apt and what is not.

Someone on another thread had the word I had in mind when I posted the above article.

India should offer santuary to every enemy soldier who has decided to remove himself from battle. This part of the craft is not something new. It is as old as Chanakya.

With all due respect gentlemen, whatever be your ideas, if you don't want to maintain thread discipline then BRF is not for you. I deleted 4-5 posts only to find many more on the next page. Now either you delete them yourselves or I will revisit the thread again..

ManuT boss, I think your heart is in the right place. It's just that the soldier was from Quetta and has no business in Kashmir. Also I think civilized behavior should be reserved for human beings capable of appreciation and reciprocation and not the brain dead drones across our western border. Cheers.

Which is a good point:

a) The excess of such high ranking officers will milk the mango abduls dry.
b) They will have the wherewithal to get Amerikhan, canadian, londonistan, Somalian etc. vijas to run away to at the slighest indication of danger to themselves. :)

If they have the Brig. General rank, how did the brigadiers in the news report above get promoted directly to Maj. Generals? :-?

I think they follow US rank terminology. In other words the Brigadiers are Brig General (also called one star general)

Bullet-proof cars became death traps in May 2012 operation

It has now been confirmed that the May 2012 Lyari Operation had to be suspended with an unnecessary loss of police blood, exposing a mega fraud which was hushed up at the highest level. This fraud relates to the substandard armoured and tracking cars, the tyre-mounted and chain-mounted APCs that were provided to the police to enter the troubled areas with confidence and guaranteed protection and safety. But these APCs proved to be death traps for those inside.

Back in 2001 the Islamic Republic of Pakistan via military dictator and chief of army staff General Pervez Musharraf was lecturing the world on the need to stop the bombing campaign in Afghanistan during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan as it would have “an adverse effect in Muslim countries” and "a negative fallout in the entire Muslim world." ( Musharraf: Ramadan bombing will have bad fallout).

So how does it now become halal for the uniformed Jihadi’s of the military of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to bomb co-religionists during the Mohammadden holy month of Ramadan / Ramazan / Ramzan ?

After bombing their own population during the month of Ramadan, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for an encore shells their Mohammadden co-religionists across the border in Afghanistan .

Is this brotherly?

Hi!
my first post after lurking for a record 13+ years. An interesting coversation I noticed in a talk show with Slimy Sheik Rashid Ahmed : http://www.zemtv.com/2012/07/06/to-the- ... july-2012/

At arround 9 minutes when the anchor is throwing wet towels all over the place, the Slimy Sheik's H&D cannot stand it anymore and he lets loose a small nugget : I cannot tell a lot of things in Pakistani interest but we are not so bhola-bhala as we seem. Those cruise missiles that were sent to hit Osama ... <wink wink>.
The anchor doesnt get it and misses the point where Shk Rashid clarifies a bit more clearly that what was left over from those missile (i take it to mean the ones that landed in paki land) ended up with the pakis.

I think its common knowledge here that Babur was modelled after the Tommahawk missiles fell in paki hands, correct me if I am wrong, but its interesting to hear it being corroborated by someone who very close to the paki army.

Pakistan does not have any technical, scientific and engineering capability to build a CM. A downed Tomahawk is as good to them as a shot down crow. They could not reverse engineer anything. It is likely to be a different matter in the hands of the Chinese. We know that the wreckages were passed on to the Chinese. Even earlier, when Cold War was at its peak, American aircraft engine(s) were sent to China by TSP. They threatened to do the same to the re-jigged Apache that went down at Abbottabad.

But the point is this Babur reengineering is propoganda is pure BS, same was claimed after Israeli Built Indian UAV crashed near Lahore in 2001, they said now they have UAV technology then in Dec 2001 but today they are begging the US for it. It is just meant to deter such strikes and increase the moral of the Mango Abdul about how enemy actions have benefitted them.

Truth if China supplies them they have a CM, China stops sending spare parts Babur is out of action. China got a lot of tech regarding CM's from Ukraine. Reverse Enginering can help only if you have reality mastered tech and know what you are looking for, it will not start an industry

Pakistan swelling nuclear arsenal to counter India, says US Congressional report
WASHINGTON: Primarily aimed at India, Pakistan is making qualitative and quantitative improvements to its nuclear arsenal and "could increase the number of circumstances under which it would be willing to use nuclear weapons," a Congressional report has said.

"Pakistan appears to be increasing its fissile production capability and improving its delivery vehicles in order to hedge against possible increases in India's nuclear arsenal.

"Islamabad may also accelerate its current nuclear weapons efforts," the independent Congressional Research Service (CRS) said in a report.

In addition to making qualitative and quantitative improvements to its nuclear arsenal, Pakistan could increase the number of circumstances under which it would be willing to use nuclear weapons, the report said.

WHat uncle does not seem to grasp is 8-10 Nukes and they will be only India focussed, 90-100 global ambitions come, controls required over 90-100 are required and it is likely that a few move from India specific threat to the global Jihadi cause. In thier hatred for India, they are forgeting this very real threat to them.

A nation with funny PhD's and thesis where most of them belived they have invented automobiles that run on water will probably have a few who in important positions who will think the material cannot be traced to Paki or Chinese plants.

It is in Uncle Interest that Pakis keep thier aresenal to 8-10. The only reason for the Paki has the 3rd largest fastest expanding aresenal is to propogate that India's ABM is responsible for this and nip our ABM programme in the bud. A trick we should not fall for.

@Aditya_V

I agree. With all the unrest in the recent past, in majority muslim nations, the Bakis, with their grandiose schizophrenia about their past, their love for all things strategic, may become the center of proliferation of nukes in the arab/muslim region. Add to that, the greater cause of 72 houris and Janaat.

Gentlemen, our friend Nelson's repeated reference to 10M canal defenses on Pakistan side got me reading about the subject. I intend to write about the development of such canals with defensive purpose from an area starting from Fort Abbas to the sector opposite our Barmer sector.

Here is the Part 1 of the series that I've posted on my blog -
