    Pintu do you see a pattern in the recent years especially after Op Iraqi Freedom serches in J&K have been turning up IED's or there have been attacks using IED's does this suggest that we are now facing some kind of Unified Terror Out fit shaped to operate Independently of its HQ ???

    Agreed, F-14, they are using the same technique , they have used in late 90s, in Jammu and Kashmir, then they have resorted to ambush. Just after our victory in Kargil, they have started during the 2000s they have started Fidayeen Attack , only targeting the Armed Personnel , and to storm the camps in Army Fatigue, and also started to took hostages , it was after Army went for 'Blow them where they are' technique and strategy taken by them saw them fall, also the strict vigilance from Army did the job. I think Al quaida used the same technique after Op Iraqi Freedom, in Iraq on US and British troops, with US casualties were very high even much higher than those who were killed in the battle ground fighting with Saddam Hussain's loyal Republican Guards. The US troops though equipped in Advanced gear were I think more vulnerable to the IED attack as their lack of experience to deal with this previously , so the casualties were very high, and the technique was also applied in Afghanistan by Talibans against the coalition troops , here NATO troopers bore the burnt along with US troops. In view of the aforementioned I do admit their must be a unified structure , as similarity of the attack , they were using again they have used some years ago.
