    It is simply an admission of a failure.
    It will accelerate social divide and finally it may lead to ethnic cleansing similar to what is happening in Iraq.
    Britain lived with IRA bombs for a long time and yet they persevered… Focus should be on law enforcement, and education/awareness of terrorism among the public and respect for life and property of others. Finally, a drive or movement to subdue the tendencies to glorify the unjustified killing of humans for whatever reason(s).

    Yes, it is sensational reporting allright which, however, may become true in near future.

    Why does the Syed sahb and Mr Ghadari feel that they need to spend hard-earned taxpayers money to build a ring of concrete around these two sectors – is it because they have become so unpopular in such a short time that so many are vying for their blood.. there is only one solution to this nightmare we are in… lets not fight other peoples wars for them – we are not good at it and we dont want Americas money/help/assistance/training etc to do it… lets settle the problems in FATA peacefully. Unfortunately, every time our armed forces have sat down to sign agreements there has been an american missle attack – sometimes in very area where they are making the agreement.. enough is enough SAVE PAKISTAN – SAY NO TO AMERICAN HEGEMONY.

    @ majad (isl_majad)

    The way I look at it there are in fact three wars going on in this region which due to certain geopolitical reasons are interrelated. I would say we should identify these three wars and fight the one which concerns us the most. Briefly these three wars are as follows:
    a. War against Pakistani Taliban and extremist.
    b. War of Afghan Talibans for the freedom of their country.
    c. American war against Al Qaeda.

    The war at ‘a’ is our our war which we have got to fight the way we deemed fit. I think we should resolve the issue of this war with Pakistani Taliban through negotiations and use of minimum force if found necessary. We may also seek the financial, economic and technical help of America to fight this war. The overall complexion of this war has to remain that of our own war for our own survival.

    The war at ‘b’ above is of Afghans which must be fought by them as deemed fit by them. Our sympathies will naturally be with them but we must keep ourselves away from this war for our own safety and security. For this we have got to stop the cross border movement of Afghani and Pakistani Taliban to the best of our ability. Infact I would suggest deployment of a joint American/NATO/Afghanistani/Pakistani force along the Pakistan/Afghanistan border to achieve this.

    The war at ‘c’ above is purely American war. In this war since Al qaeda is holed up in our country we have got to help America to flush them out and eliminate them wheather we like it or not. For this a joint strategy should be worked out between Pakistan and America. This strategy should be such that it is not against our national interest and also does not compromise our soverignity.

    @ Kabirdas

    thanks but I think a,b and c have been imposed on us by the Yanks right from the time Mr Powell made the call to Mr Mushi "either your with us or your going to be bombed to the stone age" – slight diversion, I think looking around Pakistan right now WE ARE IN THE STONE AGE.. no electricity, factories closing, atta shortage, inflation at record levels and a security nightmare which noone is able to solve.
    Back to the main point – in my opinion, none of the three are OUR WAR, this was always about american occupation – we just took their side and helped them by renting out our Armed forces. Whichever way you choose to dissect this mess, we need to be clear about one thing that this is all a direct product of the Occupation of Afghanistan by the yanks and her allies. Its not our war and we should stop fighting it, stop all supplies from Karachi to Afghanistan – we have done enough damage to our country and people. Its time to change course and tell amrika we cant support you anymore.

    Suppose the war against Pakistani Taliban and extremists is not our war. Then the question arises whose war is it? It can’t be Yank’s war. Please bear in mind that Talibization of Pakistan had started and extremism in Pakistan had taken roots much before 9/11 and soon after Afghan war against Russian occupation. We just slept over this problem thinking it will go away by itself but it didn’t. Had Taliban come in the fore and extremism started after Yanks entry into Afghanistan and because of it and as a consequence of it then one could argue that ‘a’ is not our war. This war will end as soon as the Yanks leave this region.
    No, sir. This is surely not so. American presence in this region may have aggraveted the situation but was not the cause of it. The actual cause of it can be said to be the entry of Russians into Afhanistan. Ironically the Talibinazation and extremism was then encouraged and promoted by us with the help of America and Saudi Arabia to fight Russians. Remember the same guys then were known as Mujahaidin by us and Holy Wariors by America.
    To kill this Frankenstein in Pakistan is nobody eles’s war but ours and ours alone. We can’t bury our head in the sand no more.
