India's Military On High Alert, Stands Ready For "Possible Retaliatory Action" From Pakistan

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's response to Tuesday's dramatic escalation with nuclear armed rival India was to direct his armed forces and the public to “remain prepared for all eventualities.” This after Pakistani officials confirmed that Indian fighter jets dropped "four bombs" in its sovereign territory while noting the Indian attack was repulsed and while going back the aircraft "jettisoned their payload" — implying the mission was cut short due to Pakistani defense efforts, according to the Times of India. "India has committed uncalled for aggression to which Pakistan shall respond at the time and place of its choosing," Khan's office said soon after the brazen violation of Pakistan's airspace.

“There will be some form of escalation,” Kamran Bokhari, an expert on Pakistani-Indian relations at the Center for Global Policy with the University of Ottawa told Bloomberg. “Pakistan will have to strike back — I am not saying this will lead to an all out war, but I don’t see that it’s over.” Indian Army, Navy and Air Force chiefs meanwhile praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his bold actions and underscored the military's preparedness to deal with "any possible retaliatory action" by Islamabad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Thank you, China's President Xi, for urging restraint here; I would like to hope that those in the Bowels of Power in DC will absolutely the same.

But given previous hostilities, which have manifested due to no long-term plan as to how the treat the Kashmiri people, in the case of India's never-offered referendum, which would give the Kashmiri people a choice between statehood, staying with India, or joining Pakistan, I am concerned that what we are seeing here, is only the start of further, and more major, hostilities.
