    Reminds me of 2014 when after just a few months of Mr Modi becoming PM he has given free hand to BSF in response to Pakistani infiltration and at that time also BSF inflicted heavy damage on Pakistan side war infrastructure literally forcing Pakistan Army Chief and Pakistan PM Nawaz to go to US to request them to persuade India to stop heavy artillery bombardments and simultaneously Pakistan media also toned down their ego filled war rhetoric in an attempt to not anger India further.At that time also this same Mr Raheel was Pakistan Army chief who then ran to US and is now seem to be in useless threatening mode a task which he can’t do.Recommend

    India will declare war on Pakistan and is now ready for even nuclear escalation which Pakistan is very fond of prodding up.If Pakistan wants nuclear game then let begin.This time India may be ready for nuclear escalation on its own and Indian’s who mostly dislike Nukes and don’t even like to talk about are themselves forcing Govt to call Nuclear bluff.Ever time Pakistani politicians and some of its supporters used to say it but now the demand has be raised by Indians themselves.Recommend

    @Asim:
    Is commenting a time wasting,if that is so then ask your general to not waste time on giving useless threats as i said he very well know a task which not only he but entire Pakistan Army can’t do.

    This is a fact Mr Asim and entire world including Pakistan and China as well knows it.Even China is now worried about Indian anger that may derail CPEC due to the new tensions created as reflected in Global times editorial knowing very well what damage India is capable of inflicting on Pakistan if war starts any time now.Recommend

    Obviously, India does not care any longer about Pakistan’s nuclear threat. The nukes will be the first ones to be taken out.Recommend

    India will never attack Pakistan as India is more concerned about the possible back lash by Pak rather than the people already died. Maximum what they do is – they will produce one or two films where they will be fighting with Pak army with Saif Ali Khan as Hero.
    As long as General Raheel Sheriff is – No body can dare to think of attacking Pakistan. It is better to Pack Nawaz Sheriff and hand over the full power to General Raheel Sheriff as Nawaz is useless.Recommend

    **Abhijeet And Vectra. Never think War with Pakistan .Modi and your thinking about War is Foolish idea. All modern Countries Know that Pakistan Army is More Professional , brave and Trained than Coward Indians. PakistanNuclear is more Advanced,Capable of Rapid Response and Better Missile Attacks Ability. India will Get 8 Times more loss than Pakistan.
    Peace is good For You.. Even half of Your Army Cannot Control Kashmir.
    Think Pisitive, Solve Kashmir Problem. Otherwise Modi Thinking And Steps will bring destruction for India. Recommend

    i am sure there will be no WAR between Pak vs India, our leaders are cheating us, they are just creating hipe. both countries know that both will suffer, therefore they are making fool to their people and confirming their seats for next election by showing aggression to their so called enemy.therefore chill its just a drama at the cost of our soldiers life. we all must understand that both nuclear power can not afford war at any cost.
