'National unity and acceptance of cultural diversity was never more important than now when the world enters an unstable and dangerous phase,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). If a Rip Van Winkle was to wake up from his sleep of a hundred years, he will find the world quite familiar!

Going to the ICJ was a blunder

'There are thousand ways to pressure Pakistan to make it behave.''Going to the ICJ was the worst possible option,' says Colonel Anil A Athale.

'The Pakistan army feels it can inflict a similar defeat on India in Kashmir and make it "India's Bangladesh".''But comparing Bangladesh of 1971 with the Kashmir valley of 2017 is like equating chalk and cheese!' warns Colonel Anil A Athale (retd). On May 3, during a border skirmish, Pakistani troops and jihadi elements killed two Indian soldiers in the Nangi tekdi area of Krishna ghati near Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir. As has happened earlier as well, the Pakistanis then carried out a ritual ...

For the thuggish Naxalites, revolution is a pretence

'The Naxalite strategy is to periodically attack police forces to provoke a reaction.''Once the security forces over-react and cause suffering to innocents by high-handed actions, the people will be alienated and support the revolution.''This appears to be the Naxalites' strategy and hence, their recent brutal killings of policemen,' says Colonel Anil A Athale (retd).

100 days of Trump: The good and the bad for India

'The domination of American foreign policy by the military poses some hidden dangers for us.''We must factor in that the Pakistani military and the US military have close ties going back three generations.''Pakistan will find sympathetic ears in the Pentagon against India as the bogey man.''This will be further milked to the maximum by raising the ante in Kashmir through its proxies,' warns Colonel Anil A Athale. 100 days of Trump: The method in his madness IMAGE: US National Security ...
