Mumbai Terror: Citizens against inaction against Pakistan sign now

Goals of this petition:
-----------------------
- Force the Indian government to untie the military's hands to allow them to engage Pakistan in a limited/full scale war.
- Keep the issue of a lack of response to terror alive during this election season. This time we cannot allow these politicians to back down.

What's working for us:
----------------------
- Elections in 6 months. Both parties will vie for our votes. We can set up a contest. Whoever is more aggressive on security gets our support. The best option at this stage is to put pressure on the Congress because they will be desperate to retain power. Of course if the congress doesnt deliver, we can vote for BJP.
- Worldwide sympathy. The worldwide media coverage ensures that Govt. of India doesn't have to do any PR management in support of the war.
- The elite in India. This time the targets were the elite. They will not fund election campaigns if Pakistan is not forced to pay for this.

Whats working against us:
---------------------------
- The Americans and British who want the Pakistanis to fight their war on terror... and want us to be just happy with superficial meetings and committees. We cant blame them. They are doing it in their best interest. We have to take care of ours.
- The US media. They are trying to project this as an internal/Kashmir issue precisely to fulfill their agenda mentioned above.
- The Indian media. The left wing/secular/communist media doesnt want India to retaliate. Recent media shops are MNC controlled (hence will promote western interests). So we the people, have very few friends in the media.
- The Pakis, of course. They have done their job. All thats remaining is to somehow placate the Indians and avoid any retaliation (they are probably very confident of this since they have done this very effectively in the past).
- The Political parties in India. Congress does not want to have to deal with this during this election season. They are hoping that we forget this like we usually do. Communist parties in India are openly critical of attacking Pakistan but thats hardly surprising the communists work for their Chinese masters. BJP, probably wants the issue to keep boiling for 6 months so it gains electorally... without actually solving it.

Let's analyze some of the alternatives besides partial/full war:
----------------------------------------------------------------
- Can we negotiate with Pakistani Army/ISI. Thats not an option. Their only objective is to keep India down like their own under-developed nation. If you need a reminder, just read the article about how Captain Kalia was tortured: http://www.petitiononline.com/LtKalia/petition.html
- Can we ask Pakistan to hand over Dawood /Chota shakeel/Massod Azhar. We can..but it will drag on for ever and never actually happen based on past experience. Besides they are just the low level guys. The handlers are the ISI.
- Can we ask the US/British lobby to put pressure on Pakistanis to deliver eliminate terror and deliver Dawood/LET chief. They have been largely unsuccessful at getting anything from Pakistanis even after paying them, threatening them and bombing them.
- Can we ask our current Govt. to send troops across the border. Bomb key camps across the border. Cause pain to the handlers (who are obviously rejoicing at the carnage they have caused in Mumbai). We can. But from all indications, Congress is looking to drag this on by talking to everyone until the issue becomes stale. The Americans and the British are looking to actively help the congress in its quest for inaction. They need the Pakistanis to concentrate on the Afghan border and a conflict in the east is bad for them.
- Is electing the BJP a better option. Yes, slightly better option. Their track record is not exactly stellar. To be fair, Dr. Manmohan Singh has handled this attack way more sternly (No negotiation and heads rolled after assessment). Is BJPs anti-terror stand just perception, maybe? Or is there something more concrete? They are making noises about security. But they are not coming out clearly saying they will cross the border and teach the Pakis a good lesson, if there are any attacks during their tenure. They are talking about security but its deliberately fuzzy. The actual action that would be taken is not clear. If the BJP clarifies their plan, clearly, categorically, yes, we could vote for them.
- We secure every major building in all the major cities. Any temporary let up in security could still cause a Mumbai kind incident. It's possible. But very expensive, not very practical, not error proof either, we will be spreading ourselves too thin. Any concentrated attack on one location with enough force to go over the threshold can cause a Mumbai like situation again. So theoretically possible, but don't think, very practical.


Consequences of inaction:
-------------------------
- We remain a soft target. The next attack will be more audacious (possibly a dirty nuclear bomb in a city center).
- You or your loved once will fall victims to a Paki bomb at some point. It's a question of probability. It's like you are walking blindfolded thru a mine-field.
- The Paki terrorists laugh at you because they think you are impotent. This is pretty much how our ancient kingdoms were repeatedly attacked, pillaged and raped by the barbarian hordes until they finally took over. Obviously, they know that we havent learnt much from our history. Are they wrong?
- The investments dry up. The world loses confidence in India's security climate and stops investing. All that we have worked for is being destroyed by these barbarians. Repeat of history...dont you think?

Consequences of action (a partial / full war)
---------------------------------------------
- The unknown. We don't know the outcome. But without the risk, there is no reward. Besides what do we have to lose now. They have already attacked all the economic centers of India in the past few attacks. They are in severe economic distress. They will beg for peace after a week's battle.
- Nuclear war. With a partial war, this won't be triggered.
- Opposition from other countries like US/UK/China.
All the publicity in the western media means that they understand what we have gone thru. They cannot now turn against us and support Pakistan. China might but its not going to join in an overt battle. The most China will do is supply it weapons.
- Economic loss. The economic loss of not acting is actually more than going for a partial war.
- The world will respect us for taking care of this menace called Pakistan. They are the worlds problem... not just ours. The objective of the war might be to create smaller enclaves within Pakistan so they have local enemies to fight against! That solves the problem for ever.


Action plan:
-------------
1) Send copies of this petition to the political parties (already sent them to PMO/AICC), media, Bharat-Rakshak.com.
2) Collecting names of authors who favor tougher action and getting them onboard. eg: Analysts like : B Raman, Lieutenant General Ashok Joshi (retired), Tarun Vijay, Swapan Dasgupta, Santosh Desai, Shankkar Aiyar
3) Coordinating with other efforts that are being suggested in websites like Bharat-Rakshak like peaceful demonstrations across the country demanding action.
4) Posting paid advertisements in websites like Sulekha/Rediff etc asking for support.
5) Coordinating with other petitioners/bloggers like Pushkar Bhat (http://pushkarbhat.com/blogs/2008/11/we-are-angry-indians-want-answers-and-actions/)
6) Keep exposing the approach of the current govt of:
- Distracting/appeasing the public by making a few heads roll.
- Getting Bush/Obama to diffuse the crisis by suggesting Indians are resilient.
- Distracting public attention by focusing on efforts at preventing future terror attacks (while commendable, do not include retaliation which is a must for Pakistanis to feel the pain).
7) We have plans to contact the BJP party office to check if they have clear concrete plans. If they do, we will strongly promote them as the better candidate. Hope someone from Congress party office is reading this! But as we have mentioned earlier, Dr. Manmohan Singh has been comparatively sterner that the previous BJP administration. So unless there is something concrete in the BJP proposal, its just talk.
8) We have plans to contact the victims of terror and get their feedback (any help in getting contact details, preferably email addresses, will be helpful).
9) Faxing copies of the petition and reports of signatories to PMO/AICC/BJP offices on weekly basis.

The most important thing we need to show the politicians is that we will not forget this carnage. And that we will be consistently apply pressure over the next few months. We should not get cynical. Thats what the politicians are hoping. They are scared of the resolve we are showing currently. Lets believe this will work. Lets send it to all our friends. We have to beat the politicians this time. Lets not think emotionally. We have to be as smart as the politicians in achieving our goals. We have to promote this like there was no tomorrow. The next major terror attack will take years and Pakistanis would have learnt from their mistakes and will cover their tracks (and most likely the attack would be dirty bombs). So lets not lose this opportunity.

    I think we need to add that a Sophisticated and capable police force needs to be created totally independent of any political control. Police is first line of defense and no matter what agency you create won't helpn unless you fix police.
