The Pakistani army is pushing into the Taliban held area bordering Afghanistan, forcing the militants into a straight-up fight they cannot win.
Pakistan is doing exactly what the US should be doing. Instead, we have chosen the most expensive, most dangerous, and slowest method to winning this war.
Destroy the Taliban and Afghanistan will have the security it needs to move forward. Continue to ponder and question like Hamlet: lose the initiative (we already have), and watch the problem grow.
