At the very least it throws a wrench in Islamabad Bob's spiel (ISPR's Bajwa). Infact, the timing of the release of pics/videos could be used as a negotiation tool for release of the captured soldier. Release the soldier now and the videos will be released after rawheel has retired...otherwise the release of videos will be another slap on his face. Rawheel can deny authenticity of the videos, but a neutral party can verify authenticity...
yes I see your point but there is merit in what NaMO is is thinking if you look at his actions.
His first tweet after the raid was about A business forum or something pragati maidan.
He is not gloating and not making any threatening moves as well.
1. He is allowing Pakistan an excellent opportunity to de-escalate.
2. Remember COAS PakArmy retires soon, you don't want to drive him against the wall where he is forced to do something dramatic before retires.
No I am not scared ...read on eplease.
Remember this one has bad blood with Prime Minister Sharif and displays his machoism quite well. You wanna encourage this.
3. Right now, if we release the images and videos , we will unify PakArmy and PakGovt by providing them a single enemy --> India.
Lets not do this. Instead let them fight over who left the door open that allowed us to get through. Make them lie to their own people yet again.
4. Remember its equally as important to sow the seeds of destruction quietly as it is to kick the front door and drumbeat
LAST NOT LEAST ... the most important thing. Hear me carefully.
India and United States of Amreeka have a self declared policy of No First Use of Nuclear Weapons.
This holds us in good stead and potrays a mature nuclear power amongst the world.
Pakistan has a self-declared policy of First use (WOW !!) once it feels its territorial integrity is threatened.
(makes them look like incompetent fools who will press the button once their soldiers can't fight hard enough). Now many Indians Military officers and intellectuals have advocated exploiting the bubble or the gap that exists between the current situation (state of peace with terrorism, lets call this P_X and the the point where Pakistan feels its about to lose the integrity of its nation and someone please press the button. Lets call this point P_Z
However the disadvantage with this ... you don't know the difference between PX and PZ. The irony is ... even the pakistanis don't know where P_Z is.
Is it when we cutover Rahim yar Khan but they win in Punjab.
Is it when they win nothing and we grab 5 kms in Gurjrat.
No one knows ?
Enter the current Government...
I believe they are on a mission NOT to learn where P_Z is ... but inform Pakistan (in reality TEACH THEM) where P_Z lives.
The Surgical Strike and lack of any drum beating by us is a way to increase the gap between P_O and P_Z.
The more Pakistans become used to this , the less the spectre of nuclear threshold (aka P_Z) being reached.
And you can continue increasing the Gap betweeb P_O and P_Z every year.
I do this with my two German Shephards all the time.
They used to jumping in my legs all the time when food would arrive.
However with the use of almighty clicker and some training I have increased the time they sit away Calmly from the Food Bowl while I load it up etc etc
Then they wait with salivial flood in their mouths until I wave my hand which signals them to begin eating.
Its all about conditioning.
This is a excellent change of strategy that no GOVT has thought or done in over 60 years of our history.
We have adhered to their Lakshman Rekha more than they have adhered to ours.
and every time they breach our Rekha we draw(redraw) it again and citing the same threat.
The current Govt has done away with Lakshman Rekhas and said if you touch us we will enter your house, spank your wife , kiss your sister and enjoy in your bister and leave quietly. Above all we will condition you to it so won't feel bad either.
Remember its all about the teaching the Pakistanis where their P_Z is....
and use the ever increasing gap between P_O and P_Z to place our surgical strikes, destroy bunker by bunker and move the Line of Control Westwards etc.
Thats what the Chinese do to us ... inching forward slowly and taking away our land ... inch by inch.
