    What seems to be the problem here with the Indian trigger-men on the border. Don't they have telescope or binoculars as powerful as their guns are to see who they are shooting at? I mean here we are trying to use every possible opportunity for peace, but they are literally trying to shoot down anyone moving, no-matter "who" and "what".

    @PakShock:

    You assumed that it was really “unprovoked”, which probably makes sense as evidence exists in Pakistan that on one has ever lied or concealed the truth in last 65 years of Pakistan’s history..
