Sadly, Pak army has been playing One-day, Test, T-20 matches with terrorists for last 30 years. No body wins or loses but USA always pays the bill and civilians die.

If it has been doing so well for so long, why have bombings gone up and why is so much of Pakistan under the control of influence of these ‘miscreants’?

I am skeptical that this round is going to be any different. I expect a deal to be signed fairly soon that will allow the PA to withdraw from Waziristan. What cowardice. Can anyone imagine the Indians withdrawing from the North-east or from Kashmir if there were more bombings in their cities? This is not the ‘Path to Salvation’. More like the ‘road to capitulation’. I hope I am proven wrong. But I highly doubt that’ll happen.

Umair: Army better hurry up since the weather is going to get nasty and it may snow there soon. This is no cricket that success will be defined by D-L method.

I am always convinced that Pakistani Army is highly capable of handling its job and knows its business. Otherwise the Americans should not have been rushing all that needed hardware.
Pakistan Army’s strategy has been very careful, the Army chief sent a direct message to Mehsud tribesmen through leaflets dropped by helicopters over South Waziristan where current ops is ongoing. Telling them real enemy are foreign fighters and reminding the tribes are patriotic Pakistanis. Pakistan Army is not pulling any heroic stunts in Waziristan, the op is going on with high degree of planning, utmost care, sensitivity, humanitarian efforts for IDPs, superior strategy of blockade, choking escape routes, securing routes by allying with North Waziristan tribal commanders. All in all, a success story is in the making, hopefully the reprisal attacks on cities will stop too.

Pakistan Army has all the time and is in no hurry, its a test match we when by retaining wickets. Its the terrorists facing follow on.
