Shillary Klintoon deserved the angry criticism, didn't she?
The reason why Pakistan is not doing anything about the Taliban is because they are assisting them.
"The reason why Pakistan is not doing anything about the Taliban is because they are assisting them."
Only a few months ago I would have agreed with you.
And I still agree with you to the extent of the attitudes and conduct of the IIS. That outfit is totally off on a lark of its own.
But that was before the Taliban started attacking the army and started to inflict large civilian casualties within Pakistan and outside of the tribal areas.
Now the army has no choice, it must put down the Taliban.
Slapping Shillary! LOL!
She is not long for this job. She is the next GW Bush blamed for everything.
Obvious case of talk harshly and carry a small stick.
Frankly, her original comments regarding Pakistan and U.S. taxpayer dollars was the first time I’ve been proud of a U.S. politician since Reagan. Flame away.
Taliban is not some centralized unified force. They have many regional leaders. The guys attacking NATO are being left alone, being paid to keep quiet actually, while the Pak Army is going after the faction causing trouble for the Pak Army. Don’t think they are in this for anyone but themselves.
I do not think that its the Taliban that is bombing army barraks and missile bases. I believe that the ISI is attacking their own country. In other words, the Pakistani government has a “fifth column” that is causing this.
ISI Director, Akhtar Abdur Rahman was the architect of the Afghan jihad against the Soviet Union and has contacts with Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban.The CIA has accused members of the ISI of “tipping off” militants before the US launches missile strikes against them in the tribal areas
