    May I just say, that an insurgency needs to be tackled at the grassroots, irrespective of the external agency fanning it. That is why, the need for a political dialogue and settlement by policy initiatives. Until and unless the conditions for an insurgency are nipped in bud, there will be always a minority which shall be insurgent in nature.

    The military component can never ever act singularly to check and eradicate any insurgency. Hence, while your long terms perspective over the issue is correct, the fact that the external agency in this particular case is neither in a mood to compromise nor is looking for any political solution by itself serves to highlight the futility of the approach.

    You make fair points, but it is equally clear that hat India is doing at present is not working to eliminate the insurgency, but rather inflaming it. Why continue to provide another example for Einsteins definition of insanity?

    For now I will just tell you to wait and watch over the next 6 months. You will understand it as this time moves ahead. I will discuss the next 6 months in a retrospective manner.

    Please go through the write up to get the gist of counter insurgency warfare.

    Tag and post as necessary. Am busy till 07 Dec so may be erratic, but will answer in brief surely. Can engage in a deeper discourse subsequently.
