Apparently emboldened, or perhaps embarrassed by the Obama administration’s statements concerning the Pak government’s non-action, the Pakistani Army and Airforce are aggressively attacking fortified Taliban positions. Government officials are counting 700 dead militants.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik is quoted as saying that the attacks will continue until the last Talib. Perhaps, someone, somewhere has learned how to deal with Islamic extremists.
It’s important that the Pakistani government take good care of the refugees, providing security, lest the Taliban fill the vacuum of basic human needs.
