      Really tired of reading about someone being killed along the LOC. Don't these brave soldiers have their families? Are they not human beings like you and me? Politician from Both side of the border should stop sacrificing our brave soldiers for the sake of humanity.

          one so-called surgical strike from our side, one daily strike from their side, with one or more jawans killed each day. Modi's stan policy. He thought Kashmir was Gujarat.

              Our jawans are being killed everyday as usual as if no surgical strike took place and no terrorist camps destro. All Parrikar claims were bogus.

                Why should stani terrorists infiltrate when they are managing to kill Indian soldiers on the frontier? For them the mission was successful. It is about time the army talked about its achievements by head counts of stani terrorists and not foiling infiltration attempts.

                                      Why don't you find out for yourself Raj! one is always right and the other is always wrong. I commented on the phrase 'we tried so many times but of no use ______________' this goes on both sides! yes frogs do have thicker skins! one would obsiously have to be self centred only to be devoid of global perspective!!

                                        No nation can be so silent after that much of killing of soldiers and infiltration. Still now 197 nuclear scientist killed and more than 5 lacks RTI activist killed. Previously we was thinking congress is bad. So we elected BJP now what same condition. We always want a someone like shivaji maharaj to fight for us. Just 5 Lacks was with anna hazare in this world second largest potion. We just know to blame politicians. What we are doing Just reading the news paper and throwing in dust bean, forwarding funny what's app mages. Seriously india has lost it deshbakti. What we were doing when that kannhaiya was speaking bad to nation, when amar jawan smarak was broken, when in URI 19 soilders killed and daily one soldiers, when riots happened in dhule, sangli, muzaffarpur. We are only responsible just chatting and blaming and nothing more than that. No angel will save the country. We only have to come on road and punish the one who is not responding or react to the wrong happened. Than country will change than something will be done for this country. Nothing can change automatically. We only can change this come on roads, punish the politicians.

                                          "our side"?...what makes a like you say that here on an Indian blog? And Kashmir is just another state of India. This is not the puppet government you had seen earlier. Enoght of fooling ourselves with trying to buy peace with a terrorist state which was used to getting away no matter what it did. Not anylonger!
