As i said in the post, we are not against the guy on the ground trying to do a difficult job. But hey if we need him to do a good job, then we need to prepare him for it. I might not be a tactical ops specialist but the writing is there on the wall for all to see. Tactics, training and equipment were exposed and we need to accept this understand why and correct it to move ahead. If nomex suits, balaclavas and heckler & koch are all that are required then every country in the world would have a CT capability. Point is we need to train hard with qualitative mission oriented tactics and equipment if we are to prevail over the loonies from across the border. You might also want to refer to the various reviews of the tactics of the police and NSG widely available.
again I do not dispute that we have not kept it to the level we should (hell MP Chowdhury says it so who am I to question it)
but you made a wholesale blanket statement and linked to the time taken to clear it.
RajitO at least narrowed his criticism to the nariman house ops.
what benchmark do we have for this type of ops??
Sayaret matkal faced a few men in one 4 storey building and did worse?
Thousands of SWAT teams, FBI HRT, state troopers, ATF struggled (failed) to locate one wounded (probably) miserable teen for a day in one suburb
Considering the chaos of the Indian environment, the enormity of the task (hundreds of rooms , 10s of floors), number of hostages - I doubt we could do much better at that time (when this was all new).
