Thanks for the intelligent suggestion. This must be the way in which things happen in communist nations - but in civilized countries, usually when you make a claim you need to back it up with sources.Why don't you get yourself a tape measure and check it out yourself.
Agreed. There is more onus on India.Holder of the burden
When two parties are in a discussion and one makes a claim that the other disputes, the one who makes the claim typically has a burden of proof to justify or substantiate that claim especially when it challenges a perceived status quo.
While certain kinds of arguments, such as logical syllogisms, require mathematical or strictly logical proofs, the standard for evidence to meet the burden of proof is usually determined by context and community standards and conventions.
Despite of your well-fitted example. Sir i don't think its "Good" to show Video Footage of strategic locations on border to world.But this has been an opportunity for Pakistan to pull a Gary Powers type of PR coup on India.
I know When it comes to India and Pakistan, the truth always lies somewhere in between. Both sides drum up whatever narrative they need to feed to their frenzied chest thumping populations. And this is not particularly native to India-Pak either - all countries would want to believe whatever patriotic drivel that their leadership force feeds them. I mean, they elected Trump, voted for Brexit and now Le Pen is the front runner in France. I am pretty certain a few hundred years down the line the future generations would look at our times and say - "wow - what a bunch of idiots."Despite of your well-fitted example. Sir i don't think its "Good" to show Video Footage of strategic locations on border to world.
Still, Pakistan did it's Part and took Journalists (both national and international) to those Places which (India claimed) to conduct Surgical Strikes on. that's all they could have done and they did so.
See video in Post # 47.
The General never said the words "surgical strike".
IA has stopped being a professional army long ago. They have become what Punjab police is to Sharif family.I am continually disappointed by how the Indian Military continues to insist on their own interpretation of what a surgical strike is. Even if I accept their unsubstantiated farcical fairy tale, the whole thing would be called an incursion rather than a surgical strike.
The point is that India did cross the border, shoot their guns, went right back and call it surgical strike. It's more of a cross border shooting.Thanks for the intelligent suggestion. This must be the way in which things happen in communist nations - but in civilized countries, usually when you make a claim you need to back it up with sources.
Agreed. There is more onus on India.
But this has been an opportunity for Pakistan to pull a Gary Powers type of PR coup on India. Sometime in the 60s, he was in an American spy plane shot down by Soviets and Americans thinking he was dead mentioned some weather operation - much to US embarrassment after a few months he was presented to the world as a pilot caught spying.
So what is the difference between a border incursion vs surgical strike in India? Outside of India, What India did was an incursion. What US did with OBL was a surgical strike.Good. Surgical Strikes should be the response to any terrorist attacks in India. Just once is not enough, we need to multiple such strikes to teach enemy a lesson.
That is great. Who soever think that they will do mischief and will get away will have to pay the price and heavy price.Surgical strikes now part of standard response to terror strikes

Navy Chief and Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee Admiral Sunil Lanba releases second oint doctrine Indian armed forces.
India’s latest military doctrine has added surgical strikes, including across the border, among India’s possible responses to terrorist attacks.
The ‘joint doctrine Indian armed forces’ prepared by the Headquarters, Integrated Defence Staff was released by Admiral Sunil Lanba, Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee and Navy Chief in the South Block on Tuesday. The first joint military doctrine was released in 2006.
“The response to terror provocations could be in the form of ‘surgical strikes’ and these would be subsumed in the sub-conventional portion of the spectrum of armed conflict,” the doctrine states.
The reclassification of surgical strikes, officials said, shows that they are not a one-off event any more but part of several options that would be considered. In the last two years, the Army had carried out surgical strikes across the border with Myanmar and Line of Control (LoC) Pakistan, targeting terrorist camps.
The doctrine will serve as a cornerstone document for application of military power in a “synergised manner leading to enhanced efficiency, optimum utilisation of resources and financial savings,” the Navy said in a statement.
The revised doctrine was formulated in a record time of nine months, a senior officer said. Last year’s event of surgical strikes and increased tensions on the border gave further impetus to it.
“Doctrines are always works in progress and keep evolving from time to time. A colligate approach was adopted and all three service Headquarters actively participated in the formulation of this capstone document,” a senior officer told The Hindu.
In the past decade or so, a lot of integration has taken place in the Indian armed forces which is highlighted in this doctrine, especially integration in the field of operations, training, management, and perspective planning. The officer stated that this will be followed by formulation of other keystone doctrines like information warfare, training and so on in due course.
“It speaks of the threat posed by radicalisation of youth and also lays emphasis on a proactive philosophy of the Indian armed forces,” the officer added, highlighting the key points in the document.
