Expressing myself frankly, although some (mostly many) readers will be angry. As it is, I have gotten into a habit of listening or responding to many weird allegations while working in Jammu and Kashmir, so this is not a new thing. 1/n

For the last few days, the Bhakts, or the ultra-nationalists, or the Dynasts, or those who hold only a Family's word to be the ultimate truth, or probably ALL LIVING HUMANS in India have upheld and paraded with a lot of slogans and hashtags. 2/n
Some are promoting wars, some opposing them, some proposing peace, some just making random noise. Many people have speculated about the number of terrorists dead in the cross-border air strikes, the proposed number ranging from zero to three hundred. 3/n

The first Airstrike by US against "terrorists" in Afghanistan after 9/11 began on 7 Oct 2001. Nearly 2 decades later, US is now talking to "Taliban" for a "deal". This is how effective airstrikes are against "terrorists". 1/n
WRT India's airstrike on "terrorist camps" in Pakistan, how degrading would that be to the terror networks in reality? Very little. You can't destroy much that cannot be replaced quickly. Would that work as a deterrent? No. 2/n
India's airstrike against terrorist camps in Pakistan is more for optics and electoral posturing by Modi-Doval & company. Like the last "surgical Strike" could not prevent more terror attacks on India, neither would this. 3/n

Note on possible #IAF #airstrike today. There is NO SUCH THING as "terror camps". These aren't concentrated like schools or colleges. These are disaggregated and dispersed AT ALL TIMES. If targets were struck they would be military targets
.2n this IAF Embraer 145 AWACS was patrolling since the early hours. Watchers know this is an unusual pattern, although it did come close to the area of the alleged strike, it patrolled South as well. The plane has since returned to base. Source: @zone5aviation #IAF #airstrike

Pakistan has been at the highest level of alert after Pulwama. Was India probing the reaction time and air defence effectiveness?
Pakistan has confirmed an explosion/strike by IAF in Balakot
Eyes in the skies, just in case Pakistan reacts

#Iran has obviously not fully considered #Russia. Russia does not want a war between #Israel and #Iran in #Syria. So the Russians are now trying to mediate between the two nations. Russia has too much at stake in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
#War between #Iran and #Syria would draw the #UnitedStatesOfAmerica into the fight and that would be a disaster for #Russia. Believe it or not, Russia does not want to tangle militarily with the US or Israel in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
Scenario 1:
#Iran will launch another strike but it may come from #Hezbollah in #Lebanon or #Hamas in #Gaza. Or it could be another attack from #Syria into #Israel. My guess is that it will be a #terrorattack. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot #airstrike
