There is no "intense exchange of gunfire". These FC troops are sitting ducks. The TTP terrorists conduct recce at leisure, pick their targets, hit it and are gone before anyone even knows what hit them.
For those asking for MRAPs etc., do realize that those would be helpful however only during a move or patrol, but most of these casualties are happening during raids on FC posts. That tells you there is no early warning...most of these posts have no or very limited night vision capability when these raids take place. These paramilitary troops have massive odds stacked up against themselves on account of less than optimal environment, equipment, training and tactics. Regular troops would fare no better sitting in these posts.
The casualty rate is almost 1:1 against the terrorists (or ours maybe higher than that of the terrorists). Speaks to extremely shoddy force protection measures and shear helplessness in the face of TTP attacks because these terrorists need to be uprooted ruthlessly with pacification operations in that entire region.
The only upside is that there is no shortage of manpower in Pakistan. For each casualty suffered, there are 10 more young men ready to join FC given the paucity of jobs in the country and this is why there is little focus on better protection/armour for troops.
After each such incident, the families are conveyed condolences, dua and mubarak on the shahadat of their father, son and then its business as usual.
"Sanitisation of the area is being carried out to eliminate any terrorists found in the area." These idiotic statements from ISPR amount to nothing. One wonders why sanitization is happening post-fact and not proactively.
Waziristan should be given to Afghanistan.
If you disagree let me know what hood this area has ever given to Pakistan, and compare it to the deaths, financial losses and international insults to Pakistan caused by this area.
Also please don't give me the 75 year old "fought for Kashmir " بھاشن
financial losses and international insults to Pakistan caused by this area.
Anyone can go online and watch the ambushed video of the FC/regular Army on sites like funker530 (totally white trash site btw), and as a professional soldier, I can easily point out the lack of training and situational awareness. I can’t watch them for long as it hurt me to see such (lack of) disciple.
As @PakFactor pointed out, you had 20 years of upfront seats watching the ISAF forces in action, heck even the Taliban have more situation awareness than this proud colonial army. 6 families that lost a breadwinner, father, brother, son etc and they’ll be told by subhuman atheist/secular cowards in GHQ that these soldiers are “Shaheed” case closed! On to next ambush.
I’m thankful I didn’t join this corrupt army. Say what you want about the U.S. but they take care of their soldiers as the American people demand it.
Indeed, it's a night and day treatment difference between the two forces and how their high command thinks. The American military is about preserving their boys so they can continue to fight another day. At the same time, as I've seen serving officers in Pak Army say, there's more we can recruit from, and our boys have jazba. So to me, fighting because you have jazba and dying is a useless death.
During the time of one of the four rightly guided Caliph Hazrat Umar, let me tell you. There was a battle, and when they came back victorious, Hazarat Umar's first question was how many were shaheed, and one of the officers responded, saying, "a few." Hazrat Umar responded by saying that "few" is one too many. Now some scholars say it was the officer's attitude who brushed it off as not a big deal that triggered Hazarat Umar to respond angrily at the officer. Even in that time, they valued human life more than our own.
Now, I will not say it's just officers here on PDF, but several relatives of mine have the same attitude while they commanded troops under them. It's how they are programmed.
Subko nai staff cars chahiye na har 10 saal baad, smjha karoPS: Why do they do photoshop in the first place? It's not so clear in this image but they photoshop that armor onto the soldiers uniform. Literally every single news item about soldiers being martyred that I've seen on DAWN has the armor photoshopped onto the soldier
@PanzerKiel , sir, what's the reason for this?
