An invitation to attack

PTI reports:
India has said terrorist camps are still operating in Pakistan and New Delhi has photographic evidence to prove it.

"I have told the Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz that the terrorist camps have not been dismantled. We have the photographs and I have told him that we can provide photographic evidence," External Affairs Minister K Natwar Singh told the BBC here last night.

Natwar Singh, who was here to attend a meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the G4 countries, hoped the peace process with Pakistan would continue unimpeded, "unless there is a terrorist attack like the one witnessed in London."
Now, if this is not an invitation to attack, what is? Natwar is effectively saying:
Dudes, terrorists, we know where you are but we are not coming for you, we will merely request your patrons to remove you. We will continue the peace process, and we know you oppose it, so here's what you need to do to derail it: just attack us again. Swagatam, lads.
