This comes hours after a nine-year-old girl and an army jawan were killed in a ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Rajouri’s Manjakote sector along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. At least two other civilians were critically injured in the ceasefire violation in Rajouri’s Manjakote sector.

IANS quoted Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Manish Mehta as saying: “Pakistan, initiating the attack, resorted to the unprovoked targeting of the Indian positions on the LoC in Bhimber Gali sector of Jammu and Kashmir. The indiscriminate firing using small arms, automatics and mortars that started from 7.30 a.m. is still on.”

Soon after the attack, India conveyed a stern message to Pakistan that it reserves the right to retaliate appropriately against any incident of ceasefire violation along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir.

    PART 3 :Despite commercial interests in china, western countries will support india because if india looses out to china, their own existence will be threatened under evil axis of China--NK-Pak. It is time S-E asian countries stand up against chinese expansionists policies.i 5. China should make Tibet independent . it should stop oppression of muslims and make UYGHURISTAN an independent country. It should accept Taiwan as an independent country. It should grant HK independence also instaed of torturing HK citizens

      PART 2 OF 2 c) Nuking of OBOR/CPEC related routes alone can derail these projects. 3 GORGES DAM MUST BE DESTROYED TO DESTROY CHINA FOREVER. No doubt it will be mutual destruction. India will suffer as well, perhaps even more. So neither country will survive to rejoice in the end. 3. Signs are ominous. China must stop swashbuckling and threatening the world. It will lose as much if not more than others. So, it must think rationally. It is not 1962. It is 2017 now. India of 2017 will fight to finish or get finished. China must learn to co-exist peacefully. It’s progress depends on trade to feed billion mouths as is evident from OBOR /CPEC initiatives and that exactly is its debilitating weakness. It should resolve all border disputes with india just like it did with russia. 4.THE WORLD CANNOT AFFORD TO LET INDIA LOSE IN ANY WAR IMPOSED BY CHINA BECAUSE THEN THEIR OWN FUTURE WILL BE IN PERIL.

        PART 1 OF 2 THE 3RD WORLD WAR IS ON --- 1. Most likely, China will tactically make pakistan start a war with india and then jump into it. Since Nawaz Sharif is himself in trouble , he might oblige china. Any way, if china gets involved in war directly or indirectly, it will send a wrong message to entire world about its increasing imperialistic aims. Already it has problems with japan, vietnam,malaysia,brunei, phillipines,indonesia etc. as it is slowly devouring their territories on land and sea. IT HAS MADE A HABIT OF ACCUSING OTHERS WHILE BEING A BULLY. 2.End result of war with india will be nuclear holocaust not ever seen before. a) Nuking of shanghai alone will take china back into stone age. b)Nuking of 3 gorges dam near Guan Mendong will result in 1) vaporisation of huge amounts of water followed by condensation of the radiated rain clouds over extensive areas of china 2) extensive devastation due to uncontrolled flooding 3) huge business losses besides loss of human lives.

              The current situation is heavily in favour of Pakistan and China. India allowed itself to be encircled by China and never tried to sincerely resolve Kashmir issue. Pakistan always wanted to negotiate on Kashmir but India always used excuses to escape from negotiations, now its time to payback for being bully in south Asia for so long.

                Use of artellery or bullets will not do anything. War is the only solution.
