Re - Shulka's comment.

Col Rathore has served in active CI Ops in the valley for a long time. He took up trap shooting as a Major after being with his unit for many years. He was walking home after a course in Mhow (he was doing a course in mhow or was on staff, I'm not sure) and somehow took a detour to the shooting range. Rest is history. Shulka is bullshitting. I have lost all respect for him.

Point two - As a MoS he was doing what he was briefed to do. The messaging from GOI was well thought out and calibrated. I have replayed Rathore's comments several times and find them impeccable. Tragedy is the NDTV gang have brainwashed the nation. My dad , who retired after 31 years in the army (my service was a fraction of his) and got a mine blast injury in 71 after marching into a known minefield at the head of his troops, loved our action but also bought the 'we can't go into another country' crap. I had to explain NDTV to him and he said 'damn you are right'.

Gentlemen and (ladies) do not underestimate the effect of the media.

Our Special Forces currently cannot conduct surgical strikes across the heavily defended Indo-Pakistan line of control (LoC), but India can credibly strike Pakistani targets with fighter aircraft, rocket salvos and cruise missiles. The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government disregarded these options after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in 2008. So too did the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government after the 2001 terror strike on Parliament --- the NDA unwisely leapt up the escalation ladder to full-scale military mobilization, stopped short of war only by Pakistan’s nuclear deterrent. Now that the Indian military is aware that it can cross borders in retaliation, it will have to think and plan beyond Myanmar.

What a jackass!

1) It is a clearly established fact of history that the 'unwise escalation ladder' resulted in the disarmament of Pakistan's nuclear weapons - they were taken away by US and Chinese forces (some to China, the rest removed to unspecified locations by Americans).

2. The Paki weapons may be back as tactical nukes. They have brilliantly handed them to lower-level commanders. Who, as a small bird tells me, are mostly 400%-vetted Patriots - working for certain intelligence agencies that shall not be named.

Thus in the event of a terrorist attack, the Indian retaliation (Special forces will find a free path, while entire divisions switch sides) will be amplified by a takeover of Islamagood at nuke-point. By the next Pakistani CEO. Acting for Indian and American interests.

Indian 'military journalists' are like the British ones who used to report on conflicts in central africa. Sitting in hotels in Johannesburg in a drunken stupor. At least they were just drunk. Is this guy sober? Just showing his IQ?

A thought occurred to me, and I may be wrong here.

The biggest message from this operation was to Han China, especially its "String of Pearls" strategy. I never bought much into it, as these "pearls" are nothing but needle points to prick us, and that is that. The fig leaf that these points offered to Han China was that these points are in "neutral" countries and presented India with diplomatic hurdles. The Myanmar operation demolished these hurdles: if we are willing to subdue a neighbor in peace-time, one can imagine the extent to which we will go in case things go hot (e.g., missile strikes on radar bases and listening posts in the IOR).

American silence on this issue only adds to my view: they welcome any thappad to Han China. As for Myanmar, a civil war may erupt there, and our PSYOPS wing should play this as a Buddhist vs. Godless Han Commies affair. My wetdream is a dirty-ops team (Detachment 8?) in the Myanmar--South China border.

These are just my view, and I may be wrong. I welcome any corrections.

myanmar has been in a state of mild civil war with occasional flareups ever since WW2. its their steady state. cheen is making a play to economically take over the northern half with rails, roads, pipelines and yum yum a port on the bay of bengal.

we need to move in and offer rangoon a balancer in form of our own investments and roads into the north and trade in a big way even if via a couple of ports.

just a few random thoughts

nda captures power at centre

congress loses massively in elections in several states

congress is known to have funded the NSCN(K) criminal group and therefore its a wing of the congress party http://www.telegraphindia.com/1070220/a ... 413888.asp

NSCN(K) criminal group is based out of myanmar

NSCN(K) chief criminal is known to be sick and stationed in yangon ( capital of mynamar) http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/worl ... 631761.cms

rahul has a mysterious vacation in mynamar

no details about whom he met or discussed what topics are revealed

rahul arrives back to india and starts agitating for farmers

plan was to create massive internal destabilisation

this would have forced centre to withdraw security forces from either North East or Central India

at the same time take advantage of the situation and ask the naxal wing of the congress party to attack in central india and NSCN(K) to attack in North East

NSCN(K) attack boomeranged with centre launching cross-border raids into myanmar

congress party criminals whine in the media about jingoism and ultra-nationalism of modi, no word of condemnation against the attack by NSCN(K) on our jawans

Now wait for a major attack by the naxal wing of the congress party on our jawans in central india and attacks by the presstitutes in the media attacking modi but not the naxals

typical cnn propaganda full of half-truths and outright lies

maybe the author should have read a little history about the disgusting behavior of the mawalis against the buddhists in myanmar.

the mawalis tried their dirty jihad as taught by their arab bandit masters and instead got a tight and well deserved slap on their criminal face

^ you forget bihar which is the key to ending the naxal menace.

right now bihar allows top naxals to easily escape to nepal after conducting strikes in jharkhand, bengal and chattisgarh region

cm of bihar nitish kumar is known to be 'soft' towards naxals http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/inte ... 25794.html
................
"Nitish Kumar is not understanding that Naxals have links with terrorists nowadays. Bihar has become a soft zone for terrorists nowadays. Funds meant for anti-Naxal operations are not used. Bihar has become a soft zone, one person responsible for this is Nitish Kumar, the Bihar government has no Naxal policy. Nitish is soft because of vote bank politics."

The report also says top Maoist leaders who are lodged inside various jails in Bihar are guiding their cadres from inside the jail.
.........

bihar is the swamp which is filled with corrupt anti-national netas who give protection to naxals and mawali terrorists. until this swamp is drained the security situation in all neighboring states will be weak.

I am not sure NDA can win bihar state elections. the corrupt laloo-nitish plan to use a combination of appeasing the muslim votebank and attacking the bjp for being anti-farmer to capture power. Then its back to loot ki sarkar and jungle raj for another five years with free hand to naxals and mawalis.

1) IA was not ready Gen. Deepak Kapoor wanted three months to get ready. By them the whole world would range against India led by US.
2) Retaliation was expected and awaited. Its like walking into ambush with unready military.

In retrospect the jihadi movement/wave turned on TSP itself and we see the impacts.

I said before what India needs to do is to stand and survive. The rest will fall apart.

Air strikes were considered and not used due to concerns:
- collateral damage. Its not like IAF is flush with PGMs!!!! They are needed elsewhere.
- using air forces is generally act of war unless you are USA!!!!

India and Myanmar have good military to military relationship. And successive governments have wisely allowed a military based diplomacy, rather than have another alienated neighbor. It is one of the few rare cases where GoI and MEA have listened to Army.

IA has gifted old T-55 tanks, IN has gifted old Islander aircraft, and BEL has sold HMS-X sonars.

http://www.janes.com/article/51072/indi ... r-frigates
Indian state-owned company Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has been cleared by the Indian government to begin installing the HMS-X integrated ship sonar system on two more Aung Zeya-class guided-missile frigates belonging to the Myanmar Navy, an official from India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) told IHS Jane's on 29 April.

The HMS-X system was developed with inputs from the DRDO, and is currently being marketed by BEL. The DRDO has described the product as a more advanced development of the HUMSA sonar. :D


Myanmar Navy builds its own ships in its own Naval Dockyard. Pretty decent by their standards. The only ships with Chinese radars & missiles and Indian sonars.

Frankly, I am surprised. All these decades the name "Myanmar" has not appeared on the radar for even a coastal patrol boat, and then suddenly they have at least two ships that look ultramodern and have a hangar for a helo at the back and all.

Either shipbuilding and such designs(the dry dock, the steel, the skilled workforce) are not such a big deal or there is something fishy about this Myanmaar shipyard build. Ship building like aircraft building is an "ongoing process" and the skills must come from somewhere. So where was the Myanmarese industry all these years?

http://www.tribuneindia.com/news/nation/pm-meets-army-s-myanmar-operation-team/95755.html

The PM was not privy to details of the operation and yet Praveen "Grandmother crossed the LoC" Swami had complete knowledge of exactly how many people died in the operation. 400% believable, like all of Praveen Swami's BS.


He met the commandoes “to pat them on their backs” and know for himself the operation in Myanmar, sources said.

On June 9, the 21 Para Special Forces’ unit had entered Myanmar and killed 60 insurgents in a surgical strike on two of their camps. The rebels, on June 4, led by the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (K) had killed 18 Army men and injured 11 jawans in an attack in Manipur.

The team comprising 45 to 50 soldiers of the 21 Para Special Forces met Modi and in attendance were senior-most officers of the Army’s Eastern Command. Photos were clicked but none made public so far. Modi spent a fair amount of time talking to the officers and men about the operations and congratulating them. For the Army, it was a first, in recent years, that the Prime Minister met an operational team. Interactions between the Prime Minister and men on the ground are largely limited to the former’s visits to border areas.

In addition to what niran said, building a stealth vessel from outside does not alone make it stealth. I know this is going to be an apple & oranges comparison, but the USN's newest Zumwalt Class destroyer goes beyond just the visual aspects of stealth but even the insides of the vessel are all designed for a very minimal footprint. All of the technical aspects - including the 'visual' stealth - of the Zumwalt Class make her the formidable boat that she is designed to be. This Cheeni shipbuilding of stealth can only take one so far. Imitation can only take you so far.

@shiv Myanmar has a fairly professional navy that builds its own ships in its own dockyards. They started with small boats two decades ago, then built corvettes and finally small frigates in the current decade. While not very state of art in terms of range or performance, they're good enough for their requirement.

Also, they're astute, picking up DRDO BEL HMS-X sonars over Russian or Chinese ones.

Never heard of Chinese shipyard in Myanmar.

Some details here http://mmmilitary.blogspot.in. Note the "Tulu pump" in the mast next to C-802 missile being fired.

Just sloped sides don't impart stealth. Adm Hiranandani's last book has details into the studies that went into designing INS Shivalik.

No, but India was possessed by Sonia-MMS from 2004 to 2014. The military command structure was in total disarray with morale way down. Besides, 'react' is exactly what India should not do: when the Paki sh1ts launch such attacks, they are already on alert for an Indian counter-strike. Any retaliation should come, as Rathore said, on India's timetable and choice of location. Are you sure there haven't been retaliation(s) for Mumbai and other attacks? 8) Of course I wouldn't expect India to go attack the Kohinoor Palace Hotel in Karachi as 'retaliation' and kill a bunch of civilians, but a lot of other bad things have happened to the Paki High Command since 2008.

Interesting. Who'da thunk it?

What is a tulu pump? I am guessing it has no connection with the Tulu language spoken in Karnataka

GD mahasaya,

Myanmar is doing a fine job getting rid of its own secularism. Lets not get in there and teach them Ahimsa.

Myanmar will be a model for most of ASEAN nations in coming decades in terms of civilizational assertiveness.

I think the "best pronunciation" might be "Thallu" pump - rhyming with "Mallu" or "Sallu" (Salman). "Thallu" means "push" in Kannada (it's "Thall-uh" in Tamil) and it is a pusher pump.

Basic questions from a civilian:
1. Could a couple of terrorists been captured alive? Bound and got back to get more details. How difficult would that be?
2. If the camps were in deep forests, with (presumably) little civilian population around, wouldn't it make more sense to actually use air bombardment? If not plans then helicopter gunships?

Would like to hear from the gurus

I was referring to this photo http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-YcUYvwKAHjQ/V ... 1772_n.jpg

And the motor on the mast. Note how the 14.5 mm guns are upright, and the ammunition racks are empty to avoid ammunition cook-off by the missile exhaust.

Before Ramana closes the thread, here is some open source reading on the murky world of intelligence.

How India's relationship changed with Myanmar is an interesting story. Earlier both supported freedom fighters in each other's territories. That changed with Operation Leech. Makes interesting reading -

There is a thin line between freedom fighters and bandits. Note how they kidnapped Thai fishermen for not paying "taxes"/ransom.

The apprehended were/are in Kolkata jail. An advocate T Vasantha took up their case. She was murdered in 2003.

In 2007 CISF Commandant K C Suresh Kumar, who was heading the Intelligence Bureau at Andamans during Operation Leech, was accused of her murder & arrested.

He was acquitted in 2009 and the CBI officer who accused him was arrested by his own agency for corruption.

R. Adm Hiranandani gives a crisp view in his book Transition to Guardianship 1991-2000. Also has given a fascinating insight on Karikal Muslims, French speaking Tamil Muslims from the French colony of Karikal who migrated to Indochina & other French SE Asian colonies, and in the turmoil of conflict in that part of the world, started a flourishing arms bazaar.
