Politically incorrect- Non state wars

Sneha Korde writes in Hindustan Times; “WAR should be an option.” She thinks in today’s scenario, war is the only option and that it is time Pakistan learns a lesson.

She is right and I also agree that we should teach a lesson to Pakistan. In fact we should have reacted the instant terrorists attacked our Parliament. It was an attack on our own nation. That was the right time and opportunity to attack their terrorist camps without bothering about international ramifications. That we did not react that time led to this and other attacks.

While agreeing I would play the same game that Pakistan is playing with us. They say that the Mumbai attack was the job of non-state actors. We should attack them, destroy all the known camps and pay them with the same coin. We should declare – loud and clear – that our war is against non-state actors and not with Pakistan. That these actors are on Pakistan soil – we can’t help.

I trust Sneha will agree.
