    But but aren't we all humans just separated by borders?

    Can't the soldiers guarding posts step aside so that our fellow humans from across the border can safely transport Bajrangi Bhaijaan back to India?

    Can't we all fly peace pigeons, run buses and trains and sing and dance happily ever after?

    PK and Bajrangi Bhaijaan type WKKers must be confused as heck right now on what's going on, for sure!

    If they are hiding in an abandoned house, just pummel them with Carl-Gustav rounds till they are fried.

    Don't worry your little brain regarding ammo shortage in IA.

    There is still enough to go around and do wonderful things and more importantly defend territorial integrity against treacherous neighbours.

    Why are we always so unprepared to tackle terrorism? This kind of loss of life is unacceptable. PM Modi, we want to open the flood gates.
