Cherry picking are we? ..from the very same Barkha dutt article.ok you indians need to shutup and stop lying...
for your education....
"India's main effort took place on two fronts - the war on the ground, and a delicately nuanced diplomatic initiative to try and get the Americans to intervene."
"So when Bill Clinton phoned Vajpayee in June 1999, three weeks into the war, and promised that he was working on Pakistan to pull back its soldiers"
the fact remains your army wanted attack LOC to give tonic relief to your ineffective infantry on the Kargil front... with veil threats on nuke weapons deployment it force Clinton to intervene and forced Pakistan to withdraw.
i really dont know why you indians love lie so much.. you lied then you lied even today via China.
" A secret letter sent by former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee to U.S President Bill Clinton at the height of the Kargil war in 1999 made it clear that if Pakistani infiltrators did not withdraw from Indian territory, "one way or the other we will get them out."
Indians had made it very clear to the American from the beginning itself , either on their own two feet or in body bags and stretchers.. Pakistanis will leave Kargil.
Infact it was Pakistani who were preparing it's nuclear weapons..which was picked up by American satellites and Pakistani prime minister was humiliated by American president for attmepting a nuclear black mail.
A letter given by Indian envoy to American envoy on the sidelines UN meet.BS
"I would not have expanded on what I meant'. Mishra believed that without this letter, Clinton would not have got actively involved. "
And that letter stated.."come what may Pakistanis will be kicked out of Kargil."
Pakistani army chief on almost a week long
China visit begging for their help ..during which his conversation was tapped by Chinese secret service and handed over to RAW.
