      Indian Army was PATIENT, PATIENT AND PATIENT with the unruly militants pelting stones who went to the extent of killing our Army personnel. How long can they be patient ? There is a limit for everything. IT IS HIGH TIME THAT ARMY RESOLRTS TO KILLING THOSE WHO ARE FINANCED BY THE WRETCHED GOVT TO PELT STONES. ONLY THIS KIND OF RETALIATION WILL BE A BE ING REPLY TO THE STONE PELTING STOOGES OF PAKISTAN. THIS IS THE BEST AND LAST RESORT FOR OUR ARMY.
