Default Terror attack by Pakistan in Uri in Kashmir

To be honest , India's non response has some real logic . It has a booming economy and real development . Why give up on it for sake of revenge for a terror attack . For Pakistan can use nuclear weapons . Even though they will be answered by India's own nukes , Pakistan has nothing to lose because it's own economy is in tatters . India has far more to lose in event of a nuclear exchange .

But India will certainly lose face in front of the world if it does not respond . That is exactly what is happening right now . Pakistan has demonstrated that it has the will and the chutzpah to strike at will against a bigger adversary .

India's best opportunity to strike Pakistan was within minutes of the terror attack on Uri. Ideally, strike corps of the Indian Army should have been on the road across LoC much before news of the attack filtered out to the world on Sunday morning.

It is apparent from the noises made by Maleeha Lodhi during a press meet at the United Nations that Pakistan dreads India's 'Cold Start' doctrine. Rejecting the United States advice to Pakistan for curtailing its nuclear programme, Lodhi argued her country can't stop producing nukes till India dumps its 'Cold Start' philosophy.

Obviously, Pakistan is wary of 'Cold Start,' a doctrine that envisages an Indian blitzkrieg across LoC to destroy military installations and occupy enemy territory much before the world could react. It fears the prospect of India using early territorial gains for post-conflict negotiations.

Pakistan has, of course, been developing tactical nuclear weapons as a deterrent to 'Cold Start.' It has stockpiled low-yield nukes that could be fired at an advancing Army through its short-range missile Nasr tested in 2011. But, as Christine C Fair points out in a discussion with India Today, firing tactical nukes on Indian strike corps would become difficult if India moves deep enough inside Pakistani territory, making its own population vulnerable.

Unfortunately, now that it is almost three days since the terror attack on Uri, the moment for a shock military attack is gone. There are, of course, several other options India can exercise, provided it has the capability and the political will. But, since it has been gifted the luxury of time and high-decibel war rhetoric by India, Pakistan would be ready with a response, making every military option a high-risk gamble that can easily lead to escalation.

It is evident that Pakistan is getting ready for war with India. On Thursday, its stock markets crashed after Pakistan air force cleared landing strips, motorways and airspace in the north. According to the Dawn, Pakistani warplanes have started flying in its northern skies and practising landing on highways in anticipation of a surgical strike by India.
Clearly, the enemy is now waiting at the gates.

The delay in Indian response could lead to a situation farcically similar to the drama that unfolded after the attack on Indian Parliament in 2001. Back then, Prime Minister, like Narendra Modi, vowed revenge but took too long to put together a strategy.
Though the Indian Army was stationed on the Rajasthan and Punjab border and put on standby, almost three weeks were wasted in just mobilising the troops. By then, Pakistan had got its act together, the US had leaned on the Indian government and the anger in Indian streets had dissipated. A few months later, the Army retreated to its positions deep inside Central India.

Ironically, the Cold Start doctrine was proposed by the Indian Army precisely because of the lessons it learnt from the 2001 fiasco. By placing strike corps close to the LoC, it was assumed that in the future, Indian retribution would be swift and lethal.
But, as the turn of events after Uri shows, 'Cold Start' too has proved a non-starter.

The consternation in the BJP's core constituency is palpable. To coerce Modi into action, some have re-tweeted Modi's pre-poll barbs at his predecessors, some have mocked the famed 56-inch chest and others have just given up on him, arguing the BJP's pre-poll rhetoric was just that---mere rhetoric.
For anchors shouting from their TV studios, armchair critics churning out opinion from overseas locations, social media warriors and those worried about the BJP's poll prospects and Modi's image, Indian strike corps should by now have been deep inside Pakistan, dividing it into two parts, liberating Baluchistan and holding a gun to the heads of both the Sharifs Nawaz and Raheel to make them sign an instrument of surrender.

But, in spite of grave provocation, both external and domestic, Modi has so far adhered to the principle of discretion being the better part of valour.
Those beating their breasts and berating ''if Modi can't who will', do not get a simple fact: the PM isn't a medieval king who will lead a cavalry to medieval battlefields for a dawn-to-dusk war with Pakistan just because he has 280 seats in Parliament. Modi's ability to strike back is contingent on ground realities, the Army's capabilities, assessment of Pakistan's response and calculations of possible gains and losses.

It is evident from India's measured response, ground realities do not favour an immediate military adventure. And, even if it means tolerating nasty barbs, Modi will wait till he knows the time is right.

Post Uri terror attack: Israel offers expertise to secure India's borders

New Delhi: In the wake of the 18 September cross-border terror attack on an army base that claimed the lives of 18 Indian soldiers, Israel on Friday reiterated its offer of experience and expertise to secure India's borders.
"Home Minister (Rajnath Singh) visited Israel and he was shown different kinds of borders in Israel with their own uniqueness," Israeli Ambassador David Carmon said at a press conference ahead of the Israel Homeland Security (HLS) and Cyber 2016 International Conference to be held in November.

"India has 14 different kinds of borders which are managed by different units and forces," he said. "When the minister came back and assessed the situation, I am sure he took some of the ideas he saw (into consideration)."

Carmon said that both countries shared similar challenges in border management and that Israel has the solutions for these, adding that the two countries can work together taking into account the capabilities of Israeli companies and government and adapting them to Indian needs.
Stating that Israel has the cyber technology experience to secure borders, Ram Dor, a former Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) Chief Information Security Officer, said that a major problem today was the unauthorised movement of people between nations across borders.

Stating that having faced the issue of safeguarding its borders for many years now, he said that Israel has developed the technological expertise for this.

"We started in the north with Lebanon with a simple fence with very minor sensors," Dor said. "Then we developed the second stage when we developed our border between Israel and Jordan-Sumeria and on the Gaza Strip," he stated.

Following this, he said, the third layer was developed which he described as "the most advanced one", which was with Syria.

"We have three layers starting with intelligence trying to bring in an alert whenever there is an attack coming in, going into the level that we can cover as much area as we can with all types of sensors," Dor said.
He said Israel was now using electro-optical sensors to collect information via unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Israel is a world leader in designing and manufacturing UAVs.

Sensors are also used to collect data and information from towers along borders, according to Dor.

He said all the sensors were integrated with a field command and control room "operated by a very intelligent soldier woman", who directs the Israeli special forces in order to mitigate incoming threats.

"So you can see those are the kind of activities that you can do on your borders," Dor said, adding. "These could also be compatible to challenges that you have on your borders," he said.

He said that similar technology is also used to protect Israel's critical assets like airports.

Highlighting Israel's prowess in cyber technology and security, Ambassador Carmon also referred to a speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday at the ongoing session of the UN General Assembly.

In his speech, Netanyahu said that though Israel accounted for one-tenth of one percent of the world's population, last year it attracted some 20 percent of the global private investment in cyber-security.

"In cyber, Israel is punching a whopping 200 times above its weight. So Israel is also a global cyber power," he said.

"If hackers are targeting your banks, your planes, your power grids and just about everything else, Israel can offer indispensable help," the Prime Minister stated.

Some 30 to 40 Indian participants are expected at the HLS and Cyber 2016 International Conference to be held in Tel Aviv from November 14 to 17.

Israel and India do have hush hush co-operation in the security field including border management where they have similar tactical challenges.

With Modi in power, I hope it stops being so hush hush and more open, in order to give a message to the world and an example to follow to all those who look up to India.
