    Surgical strikes here to stay

    Included in joint doctrine of the Services as a possible response to terror.
    India’s latest military doctrine has added surgical strikes, including across the border, among India’s possible responses to terrorist attacks.

    The ‘joint doctrine Indian armed forces’ prepared by the Headquarters, Integrated Defence Staff was released by Admiral Sunil Lanba, Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee and Navy Chief in the South Block on Tuesday. The first joint military doctrine was released in 2006.

    “The response to terror provocations could be in the form of ‘surgical strikes’ and these would be subsumed in the sub-conventional portion of the spectrum of armed conflict,” the doctrine states.

    The reclassification of surgical strikes, officials said, shows that they are not a one-off event any more but part of several options that would be considered. In the last two years, the Army had carried out surgical strikes across the border with Myanmar and Line of Control (LoC) Pakistan, targeting terrorist camps.

    The doctrine will serve as a cornerstone document for application of military power in a “synergised manner leading to enhanced efficiency, optimum utilisation of resources and financial savings,” the Navy said in a statement.

    The revised doctrine was formulated in a record time of nine months, a senior officer said. Last year’s event of surgical strikes and increased tensions on the border gave further impetus to it.

    “Doctrines are always works in progress and keep evolving from time to time. A colligate approach was adopted and all three service Headquarters actively participated in the formulation of this capstone document,” a senior officer told The Hindu.

    In the past decade or so, a lot of integration has taken place in the Indian armed forces which is highlighted in this doctrine, especially integration in the field of operations, training, management, and perspective planning. The officer stated that this will be followed by formulation of other keystone doctrines like information warfare, training and so on in due course.

    “It speaks of the threat posed by radicalisation of youth and also lays emphasis on a proactive philosophy of the Indian armed forces,” the officer added, highlighting the key points in the document.

    We did surgical strikes across Mynamar and across Pakistan, now we need to eliminate the red corridor within India - the naxalwaadis and the maowaadis

    Yes I agree. What needs to get done SHOULD get done.
    We, the citizens do not need to know the operational details - how, when, what, where... All we need to know is the consolidated results - perhaps a year or two later.

    Sorry, I do not agree, the 25 jawans who were providing security for development of India, murdered by these bastards, were our own people. These maoists and naxalites are scum and need to be mercilessly eliminated using all power and doctrines of warfare.

    They can never be Indians and neither be our own people. Just by the virtue of genetic lineage, being born in India, and killing Indian security forces, is the biggest enemy of India. Your and mine existence as a free Indian citizen is dependent on the prosperity of these security forces, and not being sent to their grave otherwise.

    I'm not defending them.
    But they became this way (the lower layer ranks in them) because of injustice in land pricing, ownership, redestribution, etc. Plus, the way they are bought up, they are not in a mind to see things as you say. They probably only saw a security force pointing gun at them since when they were born. They were not bought up in normal condition or even had schooling.

    It is their top layers who should be targeted.

    The real top layers are the mafia led by the Italian bar maid and her chamchaas. It is the Khangrass politico-businessmen-babu-police cartel which has tormented and exploited the aadivaasis ... Modi is trying to bring prosperity to their region and those same crooks who tormented the aadivaasis are now covertly financing them to obstruct Modi's development agenda

    I know all about Vedanta mining company, bauxite mining and all their Vatican connection.
    And I know Modi is trying to bring the forest people some livlihood.
    I wasn't saying otherwise.

    What I meant is, we should be targeting those Maoist leaders and think tanks first. These people on the ground don't know anything.
