Some interesting points in the article:

a police force that is grossly underpaid and frequently overmatched by better armed militants. Currently, the police officers in Buner earn about one-quarter the monthly salary that the Taliban are offering

Just who is funding the Taliban? The Saudis? Elements of the ISI in Pakistan?

In Swat, the army has been unable to stop the burning of more than 100 girls schools or the murders of politicians and their families.

Ah.. the fruits of Islam and "Allah, the merciful."

You gotta ask? How much of the money 10Bill+ sent to Pakistan do you think has ended up in jihadi hands.

HAHAHAHA!
