    Reduce it's credibility. Please understand that the PA needs a continuous animosity with India to justify it's pre-eminence in the Pakistani Society. If peace is established, it loses it's pre-eminence. Now extrapolate it to the reaction of some politicians to the law banning use of red lights and sirens - some just can not adjust to the fact of being a common citizen.

    Imagine PA being given a status like IA - no free plot of choice on retirement, no private industries being run by Armed Forces away from public accounting and absolutely no interference within the policy making and governance of the nation. Who would give up such powers willingly? Even Congress is not able to digest this :D

    Why?


    We should be able to do just fine IMO.

    There are finite chances of China shooting it down using missiles or EW measures. Radio silence from IAF on this matter is foreboding and points to there being Chinese hand in this crash.

    In one word Denuclearization of a country is close.

    You failed to add Why did India signed LEMOA ?

    Why India got the entry in MTCR ?

    Why India sends its MKI and Jaguar in Alaska for the air exercise ?

    Why the Govt. claimed that the permanent solution of Kashmir, will be made soon ?

    Why Pakistani govt. put Hafiz sayeed in house arrest, and for the first time except that he is a terrorist in front of Pakistani Court ?

    Why Pakistani COAS made several visit of the front post in POK in such a quick time ?

    Why Pakistani Army openly made the statement in public domain, that it was the PA who have is waging a legal battle in case of KJ, IWT, Kashmir dispute now ?

    It will depends on the type of highways and even Boieng 747 can do that. The ones that are prepared for such operations during emergency could be used for any fighter jet, e.g Agra-Lucknow highway was used for the demonstration exercise by MKI.

    But in reality, MIG 29 is not certified by its designer MIG corporation for such kind of operations, so the answer is no, plus there is high degree of risk of foreign particles damage to the engine, and even if those fighter planes who have such capabilites such as Jaguar, there is always a high risk involved specially during landing, and should be meant only during emergency.

      We hope India avoids disturbing peace in border areas, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson.
    China said today it had "no information" on India's Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet which went missing with two pilots near the China border, even as it chose the occasion to reiterate its territorial claims in the eastern sector.

    Asked if China had any information about the jet and whether it had offered information to India, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang told reporters, "First of all, on the eastern section of China India border, our position is consistent and clear. We have been following the situation in South Tibet very closely," he said, using the term China uses for Arunachal Pradesh which it has claims on.

    "We hope India can stick to arrangements between two sides and avoid disturbing peace and stability in border areas," Lu added.


    "As for the situation you mentioned, I have no relevant information to offer at the moment."

    The Sukhoi aircraft with two pilots went missing on Tuesday morning around 60 km northwest of Tezpur airbase in Assam, towards the border with China. As of Wednesday morning, there was no information even after a late-night search operation.

    There were reports of adverse weather in the area, while the Indian Air Force has grappled with persistent problems in its Sukhoi fleet with as many as seven reported crashes since 2009.

    Because the routes are not same as your road routes, rather follow the Waypoints.
