#4 An alternative view would be that this declaration is simply magician's patter to misdirect the audience while they acquire needed intelligence and prepare a plan of attack.

#5 Ever play Civilization (computer game)? You can always attack India and Gandhi (who leads your Indian opponent) almost always lets it pass. It's the same thing all over again!

#7 The least India can do is give all its law enforcement personnel enough practice time on the rifle range. It will come in handy later.

Why? do they really need to practice dropping their weapons and surrendering? seems like that has already been done for them.

#9 If they are not going to fight openly... at least they should let out "contracts" on the top 25 and place some bounties.

#11 Indian politicians of the Congress sort have been sucking up to the Gandhian overhyped ideals like it was infallible, that peaceful resistance is a one-size fits all solution. (Not forgetting, among other idiotic things that Gandhi actually did, he was slso a holocaust denier). Too much verbose nonsense(verbal diarrhoea) from the local leftist press there too. He was a flawed iconic figure but taken mostly to be infallible.
