@antony: What you have suggested is the only way out to tackle this extra-ordinary problem to safeguard the sovereignity and security of the Indian Republic. Most of the meetings of the JuD chief are well publicised that can be handled by a covert operation or direct air bombardment. Any retaliation should be met with precision bombarding of terrorists training centres in Pakistan which are clearly scanned and earmarked by our sattelites.
