I agree. I will also copy paste my own comment :The death of an infantry soldier might be able to be hidden, but the loss of fighter jets, especially given the limited number the PAF has, are not going to stay hidden for long, especially in this age of smartphones everywhere.
Obviously these are all just guesses right now. And obviously I hope some solid proof will come out.
As far as face saving, I dont know whether even the wreckage of the F16 on CNN and BBC will be enough for Modi to save his face.
Which is why I think many of these people cheering are not seeing the possiblity of widening conflict.
