Until the Weatern powers understand Islamic thinking they will never win a war in the Middle East if they expect the aid of the locals.

Pakistani Army officials had confessed on CNN that they can arrange direct talks between Taliban/AQ top leaders and US. Obviously Pakistanis are in contact with Taliban/AQ top leaders.

Official: Pakistan can help broker U.S.-Taliban talks

Pakistanis have been playing double game since long. It’s time to liquidate all liars and terrorists.

Waziristan, Afghanistan-Taliban remains an anomaly in US-Pak relationship. Pakistan does not view Afghanistan-Taliban as an enemy yet. So Afghanistan-Taliban is not the common enemy of US & Pak yet, and this particular Taliban was the problem and friend of Pakistan before 9/11 when this Taliban, Pak and A-Q were all friends. This has to change before Americans make an exit. Otherwise, the situation will be back to pre-9/11 days.

Pakistani intelligence should have a good idea where militants are hiding. Are they afraid of stirring the ‘hornets nest’ of terrorism? They should provide more information to the Americans especially when the Americans are sacrificing so much to make the area safer in the long run! It is a baffling situation.
