    Indian PM pleads with world leaders write letters

    India's patience running out, world should pressurise Pak: PM

    Manali, Saturday, 25th May 2002

    Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee today said India's patience was running out and it was now for world leaders to mount pressure on Pakistan to immediately stop cross-border terrorism.

    "Bahut prateeksha kar lee hai, hamari sanyam ki bhi seema hai, (we have waited for too long and there is a limit to our restraint)" he told reporters here after attending a cultural programme presented by tribal people.

    In an effort to sensitise the international opinion, Vajpayee has written letters to US President George Bush, Russian President Valdmir Putin, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and French President Jacques Chirac stating India's position.

    Reacting to Pakistan's missile tests, the Prime Minister said "we don't take test firing of missiles by Pakistan seriously".

    New Delhi has already said that the test conducted by Pakistan was only a routine exercise aimed at impressing the people of that country.

    To another question on the AICC resolution on Kashmir, Vajpayee said there has been no change in the Congress stand on fighting terrorism. Congress can differ on Kashmir policy but all political parties are behind the Government in the fight against terrorism, he said.

    Vajpayee said "we are firm on our commitment to end terrorism and we will also continue our diplomatic efforts."

    National Security Advisor, Brajesh Mishra, who had gone to Kalpakkam to attend the Atomic Energy Commission meeting will arrive here tomorrow to brief the Prime Minister. Defence Minister George Fernandes is also expected here tomorrow.

    Mr Vajpayee, who is on a working holiday in this Himalayan resort, had yesterday warned that India had decided to fight against cross border terrorism and said that nobody should doubt about its victory.

    I thought PM Vaju is on vacation.
    Well what a way to use vacation time to write everyone while pleading and begging.Couple of days ago he was telling his Rag Tag Army that get ready for decisive War.What happened to that wording now ?

    VAJU last time you dealt with Nawaz Sharif But this time you are dealing with President Musharraf.President Musharraf knocked you out before and will do so again every chance he gets.
    I think Vaju needs some sleeping pills to take some good rest.

    A Faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.


      Anxious to preserve his new alliance with the United States, yet unwilling to entirely abandon the cause of Kashmir, Mr. Musharraf may see a conflict as a way to get what Pakistan has long sought: direct U.S. intervention into the disputed region, as a broker or even as a peacekeeper. The general-turned-president ought to know that such a strategy risks the annihilation of his regime and maybe his country. But though prudent in most affairs, Mr. Musharraf has a history of recklessness on Kashmir: He was the architect of an ill-conceived Pakistan incursion across the border in 1999 that brought the countries uncomfortably close to nuclear war.


        Who has blinked?

        According to this editorial in a Pak paper, it looks like Mushy has blinked

        What worries many people at this juncture is the isolation which Islamabad is currently facing. Western Allies on which the military government has relied for moral and political support are putting more pressure on Islamabad than on New Delhi which had first brought its forces to the border. What is more, some of them are questioning the credibility of the military government's assurances.

        While talking to Foreign Minister Abdus Sattar on phone, his Japanese counterpart has reportedly asked Pakistan to ensure that no infiltration is allowed from its side into the Indian-Occupied Kashmir. European Union External Affairs Commissioner Chris Patten has also expressed similar sentiments and if one is to go by newspaper reports Assistant Secretary of State Christina Rocca had carried an identical message to Islamabad last week. A Washington-based newspaper has claimed the military government is presently reviewing its Kashmir policy. President Musharraf has in the meanwhile assured that no militant activity will be allowed from areas under Pakistan's control i.e. Azad Kashmir. Earlier, the government's assurances in this regard were confined strictly to Pakistan's own territory. It is time President Musharraf took the nation into confidence regarding the type and intensity of pressures being put on him and what promises, if any, he has made to his Western Allies or to India. This is required to forestall the impression that it is he who has blinked in the ongoing eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation.


          pakistan will stop inflitration or face
          war . there is no other choice. pakistan threat of nukes wont work for ever.

            Rvikz, what are you talking about? I hope you are just joking when you say this?

            Just like I said before, the Indians are spin masters and rvikz, within 24 hours, has conveniently forgotten what has been going on. i.e. It was India that had been threatening Pakistan with war and was getting ready for that illusive 'DECISIVE WAR'.

            Now, the Indian spin masters are saying it is Pakistan that wanted the war!!. Rvikz, you may get away by hoodwinking your public, but not the outsiders.

              Just like the time where he offerred his dhotis to the US as soon as the sept11th attacks took place and got no ghaas in return... LOL


                On one hand, India says there can be no mediation from a third party over Kashmir dispute and on the other hand it is pleading to the world leaders to intervene on this issue. Dudes! make up your mind. You can't have it both ways.

                Whether missile tests were good or bad, they have succeeded 100% in putting some sense back into Indian leadership that war-mongering ain't gonna take them too far when it comes to Pakistan. We may be fraction of your size in area and population but we make it up where you lack the most i.e. brains. When our missiles can hit 900 miles inside the enemy, we don't need to put 700,000 people to defend one province.

                India is spending millions and billions maintaining a rediculously high army presence in Kashmir but it fails to stop people from crossing into IOK (LoC is not a border, by the way, it is just a cease-fire line).

                And, now having completely failed in close and protect its part of Kashmir border, and failing to protecting the lives of its civilians, it is expecting Pakistan to do its dirty business.


                  remember kashmir issue is not even dicussed
                  mushruff accepts loc and says he is not sending inflitrtors. he accepts it wrong to send miltants across loc .

                    Yes, finally you say the truth for once. But he does not say that Pakistan is doing that, which is the truth, The Government of Pakistan is not sending armed personnel across the border.

                    He also says that Kashmir is a disputed region since the countries were founded in 1947. And we need a referendum there to see which way the people want to go.

                    You can only paint with the colors you're given...
           get what you like and like what you have.
