    "The Indians cannot differentiate between a 'surgical Strike' and a routine border raid. They claimed that border raid on our forward post was the punishment they were looking to administer to stan. Instead, because of the high state of alert, they were thrashed. Their DGMO announced this so called surgical strike then in the same breath stated that there were no further plans to punish stan. He was in fact pleading to let them get away with this to allow them to spin a notion of vindication. It did not work. So what's next? Troop concentration? I would like to ask the Indians, will this raid stop further terrorist activity in India? Will it frighten stan into submission? If not then what was the purpose of doing it? To the Indians I would strongly recommend that they hold an enquiry and establish who was responsible for this asanine display of utter stupidity; was it the Army whose enthusiasm proved greater than their capability or was it the political leadership that was fooled by the Army's artificial swagger? At any rate, having Bollywooded themselves as a super power in the eyes of the world, this will not only be a rude awakening the world but the Indian poce as well."
