Gilani: Fighting the Taliban is our war we will persevere! Yee ha! Plus Top 10 reasons why Sharia is bad for all societies!
I am feeling much better about the situation in Pakistan! That 1.3 million man Pakistani army is not a joke. Now that I know Pakistan realizes the Taliban is hot just ours and Afghanistan's enemy he is theirs. The Taliban is the number one threat to their Democracy and they now know it.

Pakistan found out quickly the Taliban was not going to be placated with the Swat valley. They quickly turned it into a place everyone but their murderous male only club would think of as a hell on earth. The Taliban upon taking control of the Swat valley immediately instituted Sharia law amongst many other things banning girls from school saying female education is against the law. The Taliban have burned schools and Colleges, some 150 I understand and not just in the Swat.
Gilani: Fighting the Taliban is our war we will persevere! Yee ha!

Top 10 reasons why Sharia is bad for all societies!
You read the 10 reasons why Sharia law can not be allowed to rule anywhere let alone Pakistan. The Taliban told the teachers at all the schools that if they were enemies of the US they would not be touched as long as girls are no longer taught after 4th grade. The Taliban had opened its own court system dispensing Sharia punishment in Public places
I reiterate that I know Pakistan we are told has the 7th largest army in the world with a standing force of some 650,000 and around 500,000 reservists. We are told they are more than able to handle the Taliban but I don't know. It is the ISI I am concerned about. The history of a myriad of military coups in Pakistan is more than a little disconcerting.
Whose side will this large military force really come down on? Will they tear themselves apart? Turn on the Govern? Split? Join the Taliban? With a population of a rumored 45 million Pashtun how many can the Taliban drag behind their murderous cause to kill those who disagree with them and kill and drive us out?
* In closing! You know the the complex convoluted history of Pakistan despite its core of good hearted innocent civilians who I call friends. The promised hell on earth for America and the world along the Pakistan Afghan Border is rapidly taking shape. Think about the possibilities, the volatilities, the convolution that is the entire region. How will this play out? I want to say time will tell but not in its entirety, not in the ending story, the turnout?
