Please use this thread to discuss about the chances of India carrying out cross border surgical strikes inside Pak. Some important points to discuss: - Under what circumstances and when should India do it? Another Parliament type attack etc. - Would India be able to avert a full-blown war with Pak after such strikes? - What defence capabilities does India need for successfully carrying out such strikes? And is India ready for it? - Are surgical strikes a capable deterrent to terrorism related incidents? - Or instead of surgical strikes Indian artillery should keep pounding the Pak positions for next month after a big terrorist attack? The nature of such strike inside Pak would be much different than what we saw in the Burma this year. Probably India would use more fire power than sending elite commandos to completely finish off the terrorists.
