• PART 2;;

    With such an ‘Arms Race’ India’s war preparedness would automatically be placed on a sound footing both in relation to the China-Pakistan Axis and also catering for the China Threat.

    India in comparison to Pakistan figures ore significantly in the global strategic calculus in long terms calculations of Major Powers and its strategic sensitivities unlike the past cannot be discounted. That should be confidence enough for India to adopt strong and assertive policies on a recalcitrant Pakistan Army. In fact, Pakistan’s neighbours also so troubled but without India’s resources to discipline Pakistan would welcome India asserting itself in this direction.

    Concluding, it needs to be stressed that India should not shirk from assertive steps to meet the Pakistan Army challenges to India’s external and internal security. As a regional power and also as a Major Power in making, regional countries and Major Powers, with exception of China, would expect India not to shirk butto use her power attributes unapologetically and without second thoughts.'''SUBASH KAPILA IN SAAG

  • Pakistan Needs to be Designated as ‘Enemy State”

    Paper No. 6494 Dated 19-Feb-2019

    By Dr Subhash Kapila

    If Pakistan cannot be a ‘Normal State’ respecting civilised norms and persists in needling India militarily and persistently, Pakistan leaves no space for India but to designate Pakistan as an ‘Enemy Nation” till such time Pakistan’s public gather courage to overthrow Pakistan Army’s gridlock on Pakistan’s governance and foreign policy.

    Pakistan being designated as ‘Enemy Nation’ would free India from the pretences and pious hopes for peace with Pakistan. It would also free India from ambiguities in its Pakistan policies. India would be free to apply economic sanctions against India and also motivate other nations affected by Pakistan’s state sponsored terrorism against its neighbours like Iran and Afghanistan.

    India would also be free to initiate an ‘Arms Race on Pakistan Army’. With impoverished masses of Pakistan already being denied development because of Pakistan Army misappropriating major share of Pakistan’s limited revenues domestic discontent within Pakistan against Pakistan Army is bound to follow.

    Short of actual military operations an ‘Arms Race’ initiated by India would also find Pakistan’s strategic patrons like China and Saudi Arabia to ponder and decide how long and with how much financial resources can they keep on underwriting Pakistan Army’s military adventurism.

    India should remember that US President Reagan succeeded in the disintegration of Former Soviet Union by inflicting an ‘Arms Race’ on USSR which led to economic collapse of the Soviet Union. India can expect similar results in relation to Pakistan and its meddlesome Pakistan Army.

    India with its growing economic strengths can afford this option but Pakistan Army living on foreign doles and Pakistan economy faltering cannot afford to equal India in a fast track ‘Arms Race’......''

    Pakistan Needs to be Designated as ‘Enemy State”

    Paper No. 6494 Dated 19-Feb-2019

    By Dr Subhash Kapila

    India in 2019 is not the India that faced timidly Pakistan’s grave military and terrorism threats in past decades India in 2019 is comprehensively dominant in all domains of conventional, sub-conventional and nuclear warfare. Besides, the general Indian public opinion in 2019 has overwhelmingly turned against Pakistan incensed by Pakistan’s persistent military and terrorism provocations targeting India.

    In 2019, Pakistan bereft of United States political and diplomatic pressures on India to hold its hand against Pakistan, has now found new strategic patrons in China and Saudi Arabia. Both these nations for different reasons are now investing heavily strategically and financially to bail out Pakistan from its ‘Failed State’ conditions. China’s and Saudi Arabia’s support for Pakistan has infused fresh belligerence in Pakistan to provoke and confront India as manifested by the horrendous suicide bombings at Pulwama against the CRPF convoy killing 44 troopers

    Strangely, Pakistan chose to indulge in this February 2019 grave suicide bombing in India on the eve of State visit of Crown Prince Salman to Islamabad. Who and what for Pakistan was signalling by such a coincident military provocation to India?

    Pakistan in February 2019 miscalculated and mistimed provoking India seemingly oblivious to the fact that the Modi Government was a strongly nationalist Indian Government backed by an equally strong and vocal Indian public opinion clamouring cutting of all links with Pakistan----diplomatically, politically, economically and culturally. Further, Indian public opinion standing strongly behind the Modi Government demanded that Pakistan should be given a stiff military response to curtail its proxy terrorism and suicide bombings strikes against India.

    The Modi Government has initiated preliminary ripostes against Pakistan and also has garnered strong denunciations of Pakistan’s complicity in harbouring Jihad terrorist groups inflicting terrorism strikes against not only India but also its Muslim neighbours Iran and Afghanistan.

    Strong retaliatory strategies by India and the Indian Armed Forces presumably are in the offing with PM Modi having given a ‘free hand to security forces’ to deal with the Pakistani threat. This would free Indian security forces especially in the Kashmir Valley the devilish arena of Pakistan Army’s intelligence agencies and their Jihadi terrorism affiliates.

    The crucial challenge for India and a vexed dilemma is as to what options are available to Indi----

  • This alliance looks more balanced than the one being stitched up by Kanimozhi and Raga right now in New Delhi. Congress has EVERYTHING to gain, and the DMK nothing, in the other alliance. Actually, the DMK stands to lose, if we look back on Karunanidhi yielding, much against Stalin's wishes, and conceding 62 seats to Congress in Assembly elections 2016, of which Congress could scrape through ONLY 9 seats. If it had not allotted so many seats, DMK would have been ruling Tamil Nadu now, instead of the AIADMK. But very strangely, Stalin, who objected seriously in 2016, is himself surrendering NOW, when the DMK can win by itself and set the stage for 2021 Assembly. This will be a very interesting election.

  • In my opinion, the threats and the acts of lynching are cases of domestic terrorism. People who are at the receiving end of this ‘social justice’ fear for their life. This is not a sign of healthy democracy and governance. From trolling online to picking up a weapon, vigilante justice is often misguided and results in irreparable damage to the psyche. And rather than addressing the issue, we are burying our heads in the sand hoping that it will go away on its own.
