Army captures Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah's home town of kotkai as Pakistan is understandably on edge! What's next?

Pakistan on edge after Taliban attacks

Pakistan troops retake Taliban stronghold in Waziristan

Army captures Pakistani Taliban leader's hometown recapture Hakimullah's home town of kotkai as Pakistan is understandably on edge!

Pakistan Air Force Site Is Bombed People are understandably nervous! They panic going to the market wondering where the next explosion will be? People are on edge after a string of attacks throughout Pakistan in retribution for military action in South Waziristan.

This offensive is increasingly defensive for Pakistan and all Pakistani's as Pakistan and the extremists go tit for tat. Victory hangs in the balance and can go either way or so it appears as Pakistan pounds the Taliban and closes in on Haikimullah! They are not backing down and can not as Pakistan bombs Taliban after capturing key town

I reiterate: The attack started Friday night and the Taliban backing up threats in some cases is actually bringing the fight to the Government. This is a defining moment. Now 1000,000 of the 1/2 million area residents are on the move as a result of the fighting further complicating the Governments efforts. 30,000 Government troops are taking on some 10 to 15,000 militants many of them from the Mehsud tribe, hardened, desperate to kill and on their own turf. They are closing in on Haikimullah and must kill or capture him and all his killers period!
In this mountainous terrain long avoided by the Pakistani Government at elevations from 7 to 8,000 feet this is going to be a long tough fight! In fact it is being called the mother of all battles and it will be a mother! This is the third attempt by the Pakistani Government having sued for peace and withdraw in the past. They can not fail this time!

It will a huge setback if they are not successful in fact think about it, it would be catastrophic and short of putting boots on the ground we better be doing what we can behind the scenes to make sure they succeed! I am concerned about Pakistan's nukes falling into militant hands but not like I used to be. Despite a recent increase in bombings on Government buildings specifically targeting where the attack on South Waziristan was being planned I think it will backfire and Pakistan can do this!

I am impressed with Pakistan and her military as I have said many times. The Pakistani people are in a hell of a fight themselves and the world can be proud of them. I have more trust in Pakistan's ability to deal with the Taliban and other militants than with ours. Good luck and God bless, God bless the Lashkar too they are pivotal in this!

Winter comes quickly to that part of the world, seems odd that Pakistan launched this offensive at the outset of the snow season.

Man, the one thing we don't need right now is a nuclear power state in chaos.

Holte this is and right there is where many Muslims have long thought the end of years war would be fought. They are as happy as pigs in sh*@ that all this is happening! They do not care what time of year it is. What is it, war knows no holiday?

Water seeks it's own level.

I agree Brother but I do not know what that means in Pakistan. Pakistan has to win this as we all have to. If we could only go home and be left alone but that will never happen.

Brother Tim said...

What this means in Pakistan, as well as Afghanistan and Iraq, is that unless we plan on occupying their countries till the end of the world, or the end of America (whichever comes first), they will revert back to their old ways. The West simply does not comprehend the Islamic faith. Their faith and their governments are intrinsically intertwined. God (Allah) comes before nationalism. Although we may not understand it, or like it, it is a basic tenet of their faith; and we will not change that. We are the infidels, the invaders and occupiers, and they will resist us to the last man standing.

How many more of our young must we sacrifice in this game of futility?

Absolutely right Brother, it is Allah period!
