They say that "revenge is a dish best eaten cold",very true,but there are some instances when an immediate appropriate reaction is required. India however,has never planned for a swift mil. response to Paki terror,either during the Cong/UPA a decade or during the advent of the NDA-2. It is incomprehensible to serious observers-and I have been watching the grim reality of our relationship with both Pak and China for well over 3 decades now,where we have simply stood transfixed and motionless like a rabbit caught in the beam of a torch. Easy pickings for both our mortal enemies.
In recent times we've read and heard a lot about "Cold Start". "Cold Start" in reality has been icy cold and has had a "starting problem"! The max response from India has been this massive "befitting reply". This lack of a swift immediate mil action has been because both the mil infrastructure to deliver a massive blow upon the enemy's capabilities in men,material,logistics,etc.,plus the servile mentality that sees us always kowtowing to a white man,hoping that he will solve the problem himself,rather than take the whip in one hand and the sword in the other.Unless the mentality of the Lutyen's Delhi babudom,who advise their political masters undergoes a dramatic tranformation,,India will reel repeatedly under the scourge of Paki terror. Therefore,there is no alternative but to inflict upon Pak both wounding diplomatic and military and covert action.
* Expelling their envoy. Expelling several diplomats,mil attaches and their ISI jokers along with him.
* Sanctions including economic,cultural,trade,intervisitation and sporting bans,etc.,until anti-Indian terror orchestrated by Pak stops.That includes attacks on our dplomatic missions in Afghanistan,etc.
*Overflight bans of Paki civilian aircraft.
*Pursuing Pak as a rogue terror state in all international fora on a war footing.Impose penalties and lower the all-round relationship with nations that support Pak,principally support its military and supplies it with arms,aid,etc. For ex. There is little point in kowtowing to the US which supplies Pak with ASW aircraft,F-16s,AMRAAMs,arty,anti-ship missiles,etc. which can be used only against India and not the Taliban!
* Identify the locations of terror groups and take them out with air/drone strikes and LR/ER PGMs.
* Immediately use arty.MBRLs like Smerch,Pinaka,etc. for across the border strikes against targets of opportunity and select army/terror installations.These may be with or without air support mentioned above.
* Use of special forces if felt necessary,like the US hit of OBL. This is the riskiest course of action,but if properly planned -as the Israelis do,would yield results.
*Raising the tempo and grade of mil action. In the event of another attack of such severity similar to that on the Parliament,Bombay ,Delhi,etc., consider a devastating naval strike against Karachi (revenge for Bombay) to emasculate the PN.Destruction of the Paki ship/sub building infrastructure and as many ships and subs possible. Mining of Karachi. Similar attacks against Gwadar. These could even be carrier aircraft strikes. the IN has a plethora of anti-ship and land attack missiles of 300+ KM range which can be launched from the sea.targeting will not be a problem given our sat and other ISR capabilities.These mil strikes should be such that they would not lead to an all-out war,but to deliver devastating blows upon the Paki mil machine.The Paki navy is their weakest link.We must sever it and sink it!
For serious mil strike action,we must be prepared for Paki conventional warhead missile strikes in return and therefore require S-400s,Tor,Akash,Prithvi PAD,etc.
The "low-hanging fruit" Pak must be made to suffer similar covert attacks delivered by internal enemies of the regime with our backing anywhere in Pak. The Mohajirs,Shiites,Baluchis,Afghans,etc., already waging war against Paki state could do with a 'little help".However,we too need to re-establish our network of covert agents which were dismembered by "Gujral-the-Gutless"
"Manmohan-the-Monkey" did nothing worthwhile to restore the capability.It is time for "Modi-the-Man" to give the green light.
*Assassination of top Mil/ISI officers. Assasination of rabid anti-Indian Paki politicos and other entities who actively support the terrorists and succor their leadership.
*Destruction through sabotage of Paki mil installations,and attacks-if willing jihadis can be found,like that of the Karachi air/naval base. Destruction of key road,rail and services infrastructure.We can dust off the '71 Mukti Bahini ops which did grave damage to the Paki infrastructure prior to the conflict in '71.
*Car bombs and IEDs galore."False flag" ops.This is a favourite tactic of the British special ops SAS. They got caught in Iraq but rescued their agents in mufti who were caught.
*Operations abroad against Paki interests. Individuals financing the Paki global terror network to be "hit".
*Printing of fake Paki currency,securities,etc. to flood the country and destablise its economy. Fake low quality Paki goods popular abroad which earn them valuable forex.
*False flag ops.No details. This can be left to our gents who specialise in such matters.
*Plan for monumental cyber-warfare against Pak.The crippling of the entire Paki economy,banking,services,etc.,through hacking,insertion of viruses like STUXNET,which was allegedly used to cripple key Iranian nuclear installations IT is our speciality.We must maximise our capabilities.
This can be done incrementally and to include Paki mil command centres,etc. when required in a crisis. The Chinese have a million+ cyberarmy at work 24X7. We need to raise our own cyberarmy to be the world's best. great employment opportunities here!
These are just a few suggestions to get the bullet speeding!
