    RIP
    A sad loss of a fine man.

    Delta Sir, is it usual for unit commanders to lead such operations directly?
    I thought that was what Lts, Capts and Majors were for.
    For Gallifrey! For Victory! For the end of time itself!!

    We have ample Officers who still take in on themselves to lead their men from the front.

    Colonel Rai was not on a killing spree. He was trying to get the insurgents surrender.

    A horrible loss, one that will hopefully be avenged.

    RR has been taking some serious hits of late. In most cases the casualties have been in trying to avoid collateral damage. In this case too a family stepped out. Cowards.

    I personally want the gloves getting off in such cases, in the future of course.

    Colonel,

    You can't. The ONLY way you can win this ... as to show you have more honour than they have blood.

    Sir,

    That's exactly what the InA has been doing for all these years. I have a feeling that mopping the floor alone won't solve things. The running taps are the ones to be closed.

    Also the Indian Army's casualty appetite has been pretty high for ages. Time to scale it down and lower the tolerance aspect as well. It takes decades to groom such fine soldiers and then waste them in a trifle.

    I have always been saying that no mercy should be shown to terrorists. They are better dead. This fuck shot the Colonel from the back, while the Colonel was engaged in talks with the terrorist's father for the douche to surrender. Our politicians never learn. Why not declare to the world, to everyone, that any single terrorist attack and we'll be marching into Rawalpindi. When do we say nuff'?

    Every death is a loss. Every incident a new lesson.
    This this the human cost that a nation pay for its freedom.

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!
