“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” – Article Three, Section Three, U.S. Constitution. Given the fact that one of the suspects, Said Kouachi, in the Paris killings had traveled to Yemen in 2011 and that Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has claimed responsibility for the killings, does it strike anyone as strange that Obama set free five Yemeni detainees out of Guantanomo Bay? Four were sent to Oman, a nation that neighbors Yemen. A fifth was transferred to Estonia. It was the first time either nation had accepted Gitmo prisoners for resettlement. Does anyone think that the five Afghan Taliban leaders Obama set free last year are still in Qatar? Among the things Obama will be remembered for will be his promise to close Gitmo and these releases of U.S. enemies. Since when is freeing Islamic terrorists to return to the battlefield not giving aid and comfort to the enemy? Well, it is not if yo ...

Most 'Taliban' are recruited from Madrassahs where they were initially brainwashed and sexually abused. They further undergo brainwashing where they are promised heaven and 'hoors' if they kill the 'enemy'. The enemy is defined by the brainwashers. The enemy is the liberals, police and the armed forces and anyone related to them. And, the enemy is the supporter of women's rights. These people are the ones who want to establish a sharia based Islamic Caliphate. Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Jundullah, Afghan Taliban and TTP are all linked together and then have separate links to Sipah Sahaba, Lashkar-e-Jahngvi etc,etc. Once the tears have dried up and can flow no more, we need to understand and be able to tackle the base problem. Monitoring of Madrassas, monitoring of masjids where the mullahs spew hate and most importantly, the monitoring of funds. Saudi Arabia, our most illustrious ally, funds the most with the rest of it it coming from other friendly 'Muslim' countries. No politician has the guts to say the name of t ...
Is there a 'Good' Taliban? Pakistan thinks so - The grisly siege of a military-run school in Peshawar, Pakistan, resulting in the loss of 141 lives -- 132 of them children -- on Tuesday was claimed by an organization called Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), also known as the Pakistani Taliban. The militant group, which has killed thousands of Pakistanis since it was founded in 2007, said the deadly attack was an act of revenge for the Pakistan military’s offensive against TTP’s strongholds in the Pakistani tribal areas on the Afghanistan border. The attack in Peshawar highlights Pakistan’s policy of taking a hard line against TTP, which it has deemed the “bad” Taliban, as opposed to the other seemingly “good” Taliban that has received tacit approval from the Pakistani government. While they ultimately serve the same extremist ideology, the Pakistani Taliban is a different group altogether from the Afghan Taliban, which was in power in Afghanistan up until the U.S.-led invasion in 2001 and co ...

Nation mourns Live Survivors tell of chaos School attack updates Pupils recall attack The Pakistani city of Peshawar is burying its dead after a Taliban attack at a school killed at least 132 children and nine staff. New images from the school show the brutality of the attack, with pools of blood on the ground and walls covered in pockmarks from hundreds of bullets. Mass funerals and prayer vigils for the victims are currently under way. Gunmen had walked from class to class shooting students in the Pakistani Taliban's deadliest attack to date. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif declared three days of mourning over the massacre, which has sparked national outrage. He also announced an end to the moratorium on the death penalty for terrorism cases, which correspondents say is a move aimed at countering a view held by many Pakistanis that many terror suspects end up evading justice. World leaders have also voiced disgust at the attack, which even the Afghan Taliban have criticised. Images taken by a BBC team insid ...

' Yvonne Ridley amazing conversion story ' : So, this is my another favorite conversion story. Yvonne Ridley is a British journalist that came to accept Islam. After listening her conversion story in YouTube, I thought this is pure guidance from Allah (God) Himself. Because I think she herself never thought she will become a Muslim. The other notable thing was how she become the witness of exaggerated and misinform views in western media about Islam. In this case about the Taliban(Afghan Taliban), because she was held captive by them and the Taliban(Afghan Taliban) was not like the media tells. So, here the short version of her story that I took from Wikipedia.. 'Yvonne Ridley' : Yvonne Ridley (born 1959, Stanley, County Durham, England) is a British journalist, war correspondent[1] and Respect Party activist best known for her capture by the Taliban and subsequent conversion to Islam after release, her outspoken opposition to Zionism, and her criticism of Western media portrayals of the War on Terror.

Taliban ready for UN-supervised peace talks By Pajhwok Report Dec 1, 2014 - 14:33 KABUL (Pajhwok): In response to President Ashraf Ghani’s backdoor diplomacy, the Taliban have indicated their willingness to resume peace parleys with the new administration in Kabul, a media report said on Monday. The reconciliation effort ran into snags last year when former president Hamid Karzai objected to the opening of a political office by the Taliban in the Qatari capital of Doha and slammed the bureau an affront to his government’s legitimacy. In its online edition, The Express Tribune quoted unnamed Islamabad-based officials as saying that negotiations on reintegrating the Afghan Taliban into the country’s political equation had started under UN supervision. Pakistan had assured the Afghan government and the Taliban of all-out help in reviving the stalled talks, the newspaper said, adding Ghani was trying to resuscitate the Doha peace process at a time when the Taliban have intensified attacks.
Almondeagle investigative News present, Boko Haram Revolution in Nigeris Muhammed Yusuf, founder of “Boko Haram” (BH) was a devout student and follower of Sheik Jafar Mohammed, a notable and influential Islamic scholar before he encountered a radical ideology (modelled on the Afghan Taliban) which counselled a total boycott of democracy, government and Western education. Yusuf was attracted to this ‘pure’ form of Islam which led to a confrontation with his former mentor, who regarded such teachings as extremist, and who was later assassinated, probably by Yusuf’s followers in Kano in 2007. Shehu Sani claims that BH’s actual origin dates back to 1995 when it was called Sahaba and led by one Abubakar Lawan who later proceeded to the University of Medina for studies, paving way for Yusuf’s takeover. Some others trace the “Boko Haram” tendency to the Maitatsine group of the 1980’s. The group is however formally believed to have started in Maiduguri in 2002. The group’s formal name is Jam ...

CONSERVATIVE CHICKEN-HAWKS START TWO WARS AT ONCE! Here are some of the prominent neo-conservatives associated or influential with the George Bush administration who desperately wanted to invade Iraq long before Bush even took office. The 9/11 terrorist attacks gave them a pseudo-rationale for going after Saddam Hussein and his oilfields, even though Saddam and Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11. So the neocon chicken-hawks had to first start a war in Afghanistan, ostensibly to go after Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden for actually devising the attack, and punish the Afghan Taliban for allowing Al Qaeda to train in their country.

India on Al Qaeda's radar: Zawahiri announces new wing to fight for Muslims in Kashmir, Gujarat New Delhi: As the Islamic State continues hogging headlines after every barbaric act, an overshadowed Al Qaeda is gearing up to get its old steam back as its leader Ayman al Zawahiri on Wednesday announced the formation of a new terror branch in the Indian subcontinent, besides vowing obeisance to Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar. In almost an hour-long video posted in jihadi forums, Al Qaeda leader Zawahiri declares the formation of Qaeda al Jihad for the Muslims across India (Kashmir, Gujarat, Ahmedabad and Assam), Myanmar and Bangladesh, saying it will crush the “artificial borders” dividing the umma (the Muslim nation) across the Indian subcontinent, reported the SITE monitoring agency. In the video, Zawahiri specially mentions the four states of India, saying, "We want Islam to return to the Indian subcontinent, which was part of the Muslim world before it was invaded. It will serve Muslims in Burma, ...
WikiLeaks cables portray Saudi Arabia as a cash machine for terrorists Saudi Arabia is the world's largest source of funds for Islamist militant groups such as the Afghan Taliban and Lashkar-e-Taiba – but the Saudi government is reluctant to stem the flow of money, according to Hillary Clinton. "More needs to be done since Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups," says a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US secretary of state. Her memo urged US diplomats to redouble their efforts to stop Gulf money reaching extremists in Pakistan and Afghanistan. "Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide," she said. Three other Arab countries are listed as sources of militant money: Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. The cables highlight an often ignored factor in the Pakistani and Afghan conflicts: that the violence is partly bankrolled by rich, conservative donors ...

The Pentagon has confirmed that the U.S. soldier, Bowe Bergdahl, freed in a controversial swap with the Afghan Taliban has returned to the U.S., after five years in captivity. It said Mr. Bergdahl arrived on Friday on a flight from Germany to San Antonio, Texas, where he would continue treatment at the Brooke Army Medical Centre. “Since his release on May 31, Bergdahl has been treated in a U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany and he will be admitted at another military hospital,’’ it said. Mr. Bergdahl was handed over on May 31 in return for five senior Taliban detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects. The Pentagon said the soldier would continue the next phase of his reintegration process. “There is no timeline for this process. Our focus remains on his health and well-being.” It said. Mr. Bergdahl spent five years in the captivity of Afghan insurgents. The exchange for the Taliban detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay prison resulted in an outcry led by opposition Repu ...
Pakistan's elites have spent decades fretting about an invasion from India, but it turns out they have invited their own invasion from within. By striking a Faustian bargain with the Taliban, the military and intelligence services have created a force that now attacks their own people. The Pakistani Taliban on Monday took responsibility for the Sunday assault on the country's largest international airport in Karachi. In six hours of fighting at least 28 people died, including the 10 attackers. "It's just the beginning," said Shahidullah Shahid, a spokesman for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, an offspring of the Afghan Taliban. Pakistan created this Frankenstein. The Military Intelligence agency, ISI, funded and armed Islamist terrorists to fight India in Kashmir and then protected the Taliban to gain leverage in Afghanistan. The military has continued this double game of sheltering terrorists even as the terrorists have turned their sights on Pakistan. The Taliban has repeatedly struck the military's head ...
The breeder and Godfather of Afghan Taliban,Mujahideen and what not.. Now Pakistan facing ."as you sow so shall you reap"
The Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence (more commonly known as Inter-Services Intelligence or simply by its initials ISI), is the premier intelligence service of Pakistan, operationally responsible for providing critical national security and intelligence assessment to the Government of Pakistan. The ISI is the largest of the three intelligence services of Pakistan, the others being the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Military Intelligence (MI). Previously in the 20th century, the ISI's work and activities have included the support of the Afghan mujahideen in then-communist Afghanistan against the Soviet Union in their war against the mujahideen (in conjunction with the Central Intelligence Agency) and later provided strategic and intelligence support to the Afghan Taliban against the Northern Alliance in the civil war in Afghanistan in the 1990s.[1] The ISI is the successor of the IB and MI formed after the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947 to co-ordinate and operate espionage activities for the three bra ...
Gunmen attacked one of Pakistan's biggest airports on Sunday and at least 23 people were killed, including all 10 of the attackers, media reported. The attack on Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, Pakistan's sprawling commercial hub of 18 million people, took place as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's government tries to engage Pakistani Taliban militants in negotiations to end years of fighting. Gun battles went on for several hours and television pictures showed fire raging at the airport as ambulances ferried casualties away, but by dawn on Monday, the army said the airport had been secured. "(The attackers) were confined to two areas and eliminated," the Dawn newspaper cited military spokesman Major-General Asim Bajwa as saying. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Pakistani Taliban militants, allied with but separate from the Afghan Taliban, are battling to overthrow the Pakistani state and impose their hardline vision of Islamist rule. Earlier, officials said all flights had been di ...

FactCheck: "the Afghan Taliban is not on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations"
Is the Afghan Taliban on the State Department's list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations? Take the FactCheck Quiz:
For those of you interested in the Bergdahl case, some interesting facts have been revealed. In an interview this morning on CNN with Philip Mudd a CIA analyst specializing in South Asia and the Middle East, the White House is pulling out of Afghanistan and knowing that, they will no longer be able to hold Afghan Taliban in Gitmo and knew they would have to release them anyway after the war. A video, that has not been revealed to anyone other then the government, shows Bergdahl in need of immediate medical assistance. So the government seized the opportunity to release 5 prisoners that would have been released later anyway, and trade them now for Bergdahl before he wasn't alive to trade for in the future. That is why they acted fast and did not notify Congress 30 days in advance.

BREAKING: New video released by the Afghan Taliban shows the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier captured by the Taliban in 2009. In exchange for Bergdahl's freedom, the US released five Afghan detainees who were held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - a controversial move that has spurred debate in the US. Full story:
Say what you will about the Afghan Taliban, but they're not on the list of foreign terrorist organizations. Why?

Good morning family and friends. It is becoming increasingly apparent that the unilateral trade made between the Afghan Taliban for 5 Gitmo terrorists and Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is another bad deal for America. Here is what I expect to see in the next few days. Resident Puttsalot will come on TV and announce he is "Mad as *** that he wasn't informed that a trade had taken place. But, since the trade has taken place he will be looking into the allegations surrounding the soldier going AWOL and joining the Taliban (said in perfect middle eastern dialect... tall-e-bawn). Puttsalot will express relief that we didn't have to give any more of the Taliban terrorists back to secure the trade, but will promise to let Congress know of future prisoner deals if he thinks they will go along with them. If not, he will not be able to stand by and will "act alone if needed". Then Resident Puttsalot will say that America is "safer now than ever", now that we have shown good faith to the Taliban. We need not worry becaus ...
sista ALLEN WEST--Amidst celebrations for Bergdahl’s release, some Unsettling Questions By Allen B. West Everyone is celebrating the release of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, and we’re glad he’ll be home with his family in Idaho soon. However, there are questions that must be answered – like, why did the young Soldier walk off his Forward Operating Base (FOB) back in 2009? It’s not the modus operandi for Islamic terrorists to detain American troops when captured, as we reported previously. Our troops are brutally, ritually, and savagely murdered — to include American security contractors (remember the Fallujah bridge) — not held for five years. And to have this “deal” brokered in Qatar (supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood) calls for even more questions. What we do know are the identities of the five Afghan Taliban who were released. According to a report in the Weekly Standard, they are five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders in U.S. custody. The Taliban has long demanded that the ...

Part of a prayer from staff meeting yesterday “What’s so scary about smart girls?” When terrorists in Nigeria organized a secret attack last month, they didn’t target an army barracks, a police department or a drone base. No, Boko Haram militants attacked what is even scarier to a fanatic: a girls’ school. That’s what extremists do. They target educated girls, their worst nightmare. That’s why the Pakistani Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai in the head at age 15. That’s why the Afghan Taliban throws acid on the faces of girls who dare to seek an education. Why are fanatics so terrified of girls’ education? Because there’s no force more powerful to transform a society. The greatest threat to extremism isn’t drones firing missiles, but girls reading books. - Nicholas Kristol , New York Times, May 11, 2014

Taliban's chief military commander steps down - Mullah Abdul Qayum Zakir stepped down from his post as chief military commander of the Afghan Taliban on Saturday (WSJ). The Taliban leadership said in a statement that Zakir resigned "due to his ill health and heavy workload," but that as a member of the Quetta Shura, the Taliban's overall leadership council, he is now busy with "other important jihadi work" (ET). Zakir, who gained prominence after being freed from the U.S. Prison in Guantanamo Bay in 2007, was one of the biggest opponents to peace negotiations with the Afghan government. His resignation could facilitate restarting of talks, which the Taliban said repeatedly it would not engage in so long as foreign troops are in the country. - FOREIGN POLICY | 11 DUPONT CIRCLE NW, SUITE 600 | WASHINGTON, DC 20036 © 2014 The FP Group.

Hamid Mir orchestrated the Murder of Col Imam at the hands of TTP wing of Asian Tigers Khalid Khawaja and Col Iman were two patriotic officers who had great contribution in Jihad and were respected by the Mujahideen and Afghan Taliban. They were captured by the TTP wing of Asia tigers. Hamid Mir, then calls the TTP Khawarij and convince them to kill Khalid Khawaja, telling them lies and fake stories about Khalid Khawaja. The Khawarij were confused about killing both officers. After this call, both Khalid Khawaja and Col Iman were brutally executed. Son of Khalid Khawaja is on media record saying that Hamid Mir is the murderer of these officers. Now you can hear the original voice of Hamid Mir and his sinister plot on behalf of RAW/CIA to get these officers killed. Innalillahe inna ilehe rajeoon !!
Abdullah has consistently echoed the Kabul refrain that Afghanistan’s internal conflict is the consequence of Pakistan’s support of the Afghan Taliban. Given his roots and legacy, Abdullah will be closer to the Afghan National Army and the National Directorate of Intelligence — both composed largely of Northern Alliance elements.

Here it is:   QUERY: Any one knows Sheikh Imran Hosein's (HA) views on the Geneva pact? Apparently this is a U-turn by the West's attitude towards Iran and Iran's attitude towards US whom they have been calling the "The Great Satan" since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.  I am hearing views that one of the reason for this pact may be to provide NATO with an alternate supply route as there is an increased concern about NATO supplies from Pakistan. Infact the Imran Khan led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf has been blocking the NATO supply route since the last eight days. NATO has sufferred a lot before because of 8 month supply blockade earlier in 2011 and they may not want to enter into that situation again and Iran may come to the rescue.   In addition, historically Iran has not gone well with Afghan Taliban and this animosity might be used by NATO to its advantage. The Arab world is also concerned about the change of the Western attitude towards Iran. Some even calling that US has betrayed the "Long standing ...

Dear Ghairatmands, Good Jinnah Liberals, Tariq Ali Pinkos and Honda Civic Society of Pakistan, My deepest Condolences on the record turnout in the ongoing Afghan Elections. We really wanted to believe that Afghanistan is still our Backyard, our Strategic Death, ops, Depth. But it turns out that the Taliban are really not as popular there as Hazrat Imran Khan wants us to think. I hope this does not damage another carefully crafted myth that the Afghan Taliban, with their bases, ideological and logistical support, facilitation etc etc in Pakistan, are Different from the Pakistani Taliban and their 7 million different avatars. If this happens, then more condolences to HIK, Ansar Abbasi, Hamid Mir, Najam Sethi, Elitest Jinnah Institute Foreign Policy Elite Report, "Independant" media and all those who worked so hard to create this artificial distinction. I wonder why Afghanistan does not like Pakistan-Saudi backed "Afghan Taliban". Is it lashing unarmed women? Is it the that is one of the favourite sports o . ...
Unsure if Afghan Taliban blaming "foreign invaders" for shooting children in the hotel they just shot up will wash
Do Taliban threaten the region.? [Dr K.N. Pandita] Will Taliban terror proliferate eastward after the US drawdown in 2014? Strategists vigorously debate the proposition. Only the Indian and not the foreign print media have given it near hype importance. What actually stimulates the Indian press to cry wolf? It is not Talban intrepidity: it is the split personality and inconsistency of ordinary Kashmiris serving as stimulants, thanks to their euphoric response to Pakistan’s charade. Who are the ‘Taliban’ we are talking about? We have two of them; the Afghan Taliban based in Afghanistan, and the TTP meaning Tehreek-i-Taliban-e Pakistan based in Pakistan. Both are essentially motivated by religious conservatism. But there are other specificities. Taliban of Afghanistan sprang from the corpus of disbanded mujahideen soon after the Soviets exited and power passed into their hands in Kabul. When threat to national sovereignty receded, the country fell into a state of anarchy. Afghan commanders and their . ...
) The widespread search for the missing Malaysian jet MH370 continues, as confusion deepens over ‘missing 30 minutes’ at heart of the mystery engulfing the stricken jet. Meanwhile, The Independent has learnt that Malaysian authorities are seeking diplomatic permission to investigate a theory that the plane was flown to one of a number of Taliban strongholds on the border of Afghanistan and North West Pakistan. Last night sources in Kuala Lumpur assisting with the investigation told The Independent that full diplomatic permissions were being sought in order to rule out the theory that the plane could have flown to areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan that are not under government control. Large areas of the southern half of Afghanistan are ruled by the Afghan Taliban, while some areas of north-west Pakistan, adjacent to or near to the Afghan border, are controlled by the Pakistani Taliban. A spokesman for Malaysian Airlines said: “These are matters for the jurisdiction of those regions and Malaysia’s ...
Today I had an interesting incident. Goes to show how stupid, myopic, deaf, dumb and blind these TTP khawarij supporters are. Worth sharing with you all. I was in a hotel lobby when a suited man, educated looking walked up to me and asked “Zaid sb why are you against deobandis” ? Me: No I am NOT. I am against Congressi deobandis only. He: Deobandis have defeated two super powers. One Russian and One American. They have defended Pakistan. You speak against deobandis. Why ? (he started to raise his voices as well) Me: Calm down and lower your voice, do you know that I have also fought in Afghanistan against Soviets ?? He: No I don’t know that (he was puzzled now). Me: do you know that I am the biggest defender of Mullah Omer in Pakistan? He: but you never defend Afghan Taliban in media. You never say that in public. You are saying that in front of me alone. Me: I have defended Afghan Taliban a thousand time in media. You have never seen my programs surely. Me: what is your name ?? He: I won’t tell y ...

Afghanistan - Pakistan - Durand line -- an important border issue for the future Why the Durand Line Matters It is time for Kabul to accept the legality of the border. By Arwin Rahi February 21, 2014 Afghan officials have at times accused Pakistan of being less than honest in pushing the Afghan Taliban for talks with Kabul. Before making such statements, those same officials should also try to understand Pakistan’s deep concerns about Afghanistan’s stance on their common border. At present, Afghanistan does not officially recognize the international border with Pakistan. Instead, it has territorial claims on areas stretching from the Afghan-Pakistan border to the Indus River, all told comprising nearly 60 percent of Pakistani territory. This border dispute has its roots in the nineteenth century, when Pakistan was part of India and India was a British colony. The British imposed the 2640 km borderline on the Amir of Afghanistan in 1893 in a bid to strengthen the former’s control over the northern pa ...

The Obama administration has decided to revive talks with the Afghan Taliban in an effort to free the only known American soldier in captivity in exchange for the release of Taliban prisoners held at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, The Washington Post reported late Monday. So why there is an impresssion in pakistan that dialogue with TTP is a Taboo ?? Think Tank
Government Taliban Dialogue Prospects and consequences Both sides have nominated their team for dialogue to bring peace to Pakistan. Situation is very much confusing for everyone. Taliban is deemed to be a puppet of Pakistan Army for long time. And PML (N) has always been closed to religious parties and had soft corner for Taliban as well. What are those reasons pushing Nawaz Sharif for a dialogue or to launch a military operation against Taliban? I think all groups of Taliban are no more stooge of Pak army. And TTP is now a committed ideological group and is fighting for Islamic sharia in Pakistan and ultimately a Khalifat TTP has also supporters and sympathizers among political parties. It has also close relationship with Al Qaida and Afghan Taliban. And another fact is that Both Taliban and Al Qaida are on the rise and al-Qaida has now strong presence in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and some African countries. Afghan Taliban is also thinking to recapture at least the Pashtun belt of Afghanistan after 2014. I thi ...
Imran Khan NICKNAMED AS Taliban Khan TOUGH OPTIONS FOR Pakistan Army Pakistan’s fledgling peace talks with the Tehreek-e-Taleban Pakistan (TTP) suffered a fresh blow on Friday as a negotiator for the militants said he would take no further part until the agenda included the imposition of Shariah law in Pakistan. The firebrand Maulana Abdul Aziz, the chief cleric at Islamabad’s radical Lal Masjid (Red Mosque), said Pakistan’s constitution should be replaced by the Holy Quran and the hadith. Earlier when TTP nominated Imran Khan as one of their negotiators, his detractors nicknamed him as Taliban Khan. Imran Khan declined the TTP offer. Jinnah’s democracy never actually sank down in Pakistan. If the talks fail, will Army crack down on TTP ? Will Afghanistan support military action against TTP in border areas while Pakistan continues to be soft on Afghan Taliban (Mullah Omar & co) ? These questions are important to Afghanistan and India. Pakistan Army will surely try to divert attention by creatin .. ...

A Military Dog Is Captured by the Taliban Posted: 07 Feb 2014 11:30 AM PST On Thursday, the Afghan Taliban said it had captured a U.S. military dog and posted a video of the dog online. In the video, the dog is wearing a "complex harness" and mills around members of the Taliban, clearly frightened. According to the Guardian, the dog appears to be Belgian Sheepdog. The paper talked to "an experienced dog handler" who has worked in Afghanistan, who said the dog "just wants to get back to his handler. "You see the ears?

Taliban Talks: What is Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai Really Up To? By Pepe Escobar February 06, 2014 "Whatever one’s judgment of sartorially immaculate crypto-American puppet Afghan President Hamid Karzai, he’s not a fool. So now the word is out, via his spokesman Aimal Fazi, that Karzai envoys have been negotiating in Dubai with the Afghan Taliban. And Karzai, on top of it, is boldly encouraging Washington to join the party. Otherwise, he won’t sign a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) – the key plot line in the Hindu Kush’s favorite geopolitical soap opera for over a year now. Let’s try to break this mess down succinctly. On one side we have the Obama administration dying to exit Afghanistan, but with the Pentagon adamant on keeping boots on the ground and at least some well-located pearls in its vast Empire of Bases. On the other we have a US puppet who needs to think about his future after whatever form the American exit takes; otherwise the Taliban may grill him like a live kebab. And in th ...
To understand IK & Govt approach recall that Pakistan's Interior Minister said that there are some 66 different groups engaged in terrorism in Pakistan. Right wing parties like JUI, JI etc think that Afghan Taliban (Mulla Omer and Haqqani group) are fighting for freedom of Afghanistan and they attack only our military because we have become ally of US on WOT. And these are other groups mostly banned and fake Taliban who kill innocent civilians and engage in all sorts of terrorism and their aim is to destabilize Pakistan as a failed state. Nearly 40, 000 innocent civilians and over 5000 servicemen have been killed and thousands injured since 20002 It is open secret that they are sponsored by Hindu Zionist cabal as most analysts say. By reaching an agreement with genuine Taliban group, some politicians feel it 'd be easy for us to deal with other underground troops as the operations in Karachi are going on. Military operation in Tribal areas, it is said may be counter productive unless we take the tribal le ...
Sir: President Hamid Karzai is trying to develop contacts with the Afghan Taliban in order to pave the way for a political role for himself in the post-US/NATO withdrawal Afghanistan. Probably the entire world was expecting the same from Karzai, given his ability to change his colours according to circumstances. Hamid Karzai is showing to the Taliban that he was helpless when they needed him the most. He is trying to make them realise that he had not been comfortable with the US. His decision of not signing the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) can be one of the ploys to show to the Taliban how much he hates the US policies. All this hatred has come after enjoying two full presidential stints. Great show indeed. The former US ambassador to the European Union and the initiator of the Bonn conference on Afghanistan, James F Dobbins, in his book, After the Taliban: Nation-Building in Afghanistan, writes that General Tommy Franks, who headed the US Central Command based at Tampa, Florida in 2001, received a ...
US military canine 'in Afghan Taliban custody' .
Four mindsets.Dr Farrukh Saleem A mindset is a “fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations.” In essence, a mindset is a “set of assumptions, methods or notations held by one or more people or groups of people.” Here are three facts. Fact 1: Over 2003-2014 fatalities in terrorist violence in Pakistan stand at 50,943. Fact 2: Over 2002-2014, there have been a total of 390 suicide attacks. Fact 3: Over 2001-2014, there have been a total of 4,754 bomb blasts. What does a Pakistani mind make out of the above facts? Within the Pakistani society, both civil and military, there exist four mindsets – conspiratorial, strategic, appeasement and clear. The conspiratorial mindset is convinced that whatever is happening in Pakistan is all American/Indian/Zionist doing. The strategic mindset is bent upon containing the TTP (considered anti-Pakistan) and protecting the Afghan Taliban (considered ‘strategic assets’). The appeasement min ...
Director of National Intelligence and United States Navy Admiral, Dennis C. Blair, told U.S. senators that the Pakistani state and army meanwhile draw clear distinctions among different militant groups.[130] While links exist between the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban, the two groups are distinct enough for the Pakistani military to be able to view them very differently.[131] American officials said that the S Wing of the Pakistani ISI provided direct support to three major groups carrying out attacks in Afghanistan: the Afghan Taliban based in Quetta, Pakistan, commanded by Mullah Muhammad Omar; the militant network run by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar; and a different group run by the guerrilla leader Jalaluddin Haqqani, all considered a strategic asset by Pakistan in contrast to the TTP run by Hakimullah Mehsud, which has engaged the Pakistani army in combat.[130]
CAN WE REALLY ALLOW 35000 TERRORISTS , OUR CLOSET PRO TTP LEADERSHIP AND A HANDFUL AMONGST OUR LOT WITH THE MINDSET TO DETERMINE OUR WAY OF LIFE. LIFE OF 190 MILLION PEOPLE ? TIME TO HAVE A SERIOUS THOUGHT. What does TTP want? Ali K Chishti Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is an umbrella organization of 13 militant Islamist groups that united under the command of Baitullah Mehsud in December 2007. Since then, it has been responsible for thousands of terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings. In 2008, Baitullah Mehsud met Al Qaeda leader Dr Aymen al-Zawahiri in South Waziristan and shifted his loyalties from Mullah Omar, the emir of the Afghan Taliban, to Osama Bin Laden, then chief of Al Qaeda. Between 2003 and 2007, the TTP had killed 4,346 civilians and soldiers. After allying with Al Qaeda in 2008, it has killed 19,459 people so far. With its proxies spread across Pakistan, the group is now considered the number one enemy of Pakistan. The estimated strength of the TTP is between 30,000 and 35,000. I ...

America has invited the Afghan Taliban for peace talks, a request that was made just one day after a Taliban martyrdom assault team killed 21 people, including IMF's representative to Afghanistan, three UN workers, two Americans, two Brits, two Canadians, and a Danish citizen at a restaurant in Kabul. Zabihullah Mujahid in a more polite manner told them to go fthemselves.
Afghan Taliban reject US call for peace talks - The Long War Journal "We strongly reject the American demand," Zabihullah Mujahid, an official Taliban spokesman "If America truly wants peace and stability for Afghanistan then it should immediately withdraw all its forces from our land and leave the Afghans to their own wills and aspirations," he continued. "If America is adamant on war and occupation then it should wait for more deadly attacks." "They [Al Qaeda] are among the first groups and banners that pledged allegiance to the Emir of the Believers [Mullah Omar, the leader of the Afghan Taliban], and they operate in Afghanistan under the flag of the Islamic Emirate," a spokesman to jihadist forums known as Abdullah al Wazir said in February 2012.

Afghan officials blame Pakistan orchestrated Kabul attack KABUL: Afghan officials Sunday suggested Pakistan orchestrated the attack on a Kabul restaurant that killed 21 people, including senior international representatives, and rattled the capital's close-knit expatriate community. National Security Adviser Rangin Dadfar Spanta rejected the Taliban's claims of responsibility for Friday's killings, saying the attack in Kabul's heavily guarded diplomatic district was beyond the capacity of homegrown Afghan insurgents. "I cannot believe that was Afghan Taliban. It was an attack organized and implemented by the regional spy or intelligence service," Mr. Spanta said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. "This is too sophisticated, which is a strong sign of the hand of some intelligence agencies." While Mr. Spanta didn't specifically accuse Pakistan by name, the language he used is the same as what Kabul officials usually employ to refer to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, a spy service that mai ...
PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Members of the Afghan Taliban confirmed to NBC News on Thursday that they are still holding the American soldier Bowe Bergdahl who disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in 2009, but claimed he sometimes stops eating and drinking.
Differences Between The Afghan Taliban and TTP These two groups are NOT the same. For those uneducated, Geo TV watching folks, the ISI did not create the TTP. Why would the ISI create the TTP and then behead soldiers of the Pakistan Army? Doesn't make sense, and proves how stupid some are. An Afghan Taliban spokesman told The New York Times: "We don’t like to be involved with them (TTP), as we have rejected all affiliation with Pakistani Taliban fighters...We have sympathy for them as Muslims, but beside that, there is nothing else between us."

Afghan Taliban killings in Quetta may be part of pattern: Afghan intelligence chief says investigat...
Pakistan, Taliban and the Afghan Quagmire By: Bruce The Brothers Riedell With American and NATO combat troops scheduled to depart Afghanistan next year, the relationship between the Afghan Taliban and Pakistan has become more important than ever. It is a complex and complicated nexus. Without doubt, Pakistan and its intelligence service, the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate of the army (ISI), have more influence over the Taliban than any other country or intelligence service. It provides critical safe haven and sanctuary to the groups’ leadership, advice on military and diplomatic issues, and assistance with fund raising. But its influence is not complete, and whether it could persuade the Taliban to settle for a political settlement in Afghanistan, is unclear at best. Pakistan’s Support for Survival and Revival of the Taliban Pakistan has been intimately associated with the Taliban since its birth in the mid-1990s. The ISI provided support to Mullah Omar when he founded the organisation in Kan ...
CIA gave birth to TTP at “Penny Lane” near Guantanamo Bay Prison–Report On November 25, The Associated Press released a news report which strengthens the beliefs held by many security analyts, that the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan or ‘TTP’ for short, a terrorist organization which repeatedly claims ties to the Afghan Taliban, is a fake group bred by the American intelligence community. According to the report, the CIA had a secret facility (until 2006) near the main Guantanamo Bay prison, dubbed “Penny Lane“, where captured jihadists and fighters from Afghanistan were turned into double agents. This fundamentally required that those who agreed in being American spies would guarantee full cooperation in “killing terrorists” (or, in other words, targeting elements who are eyesore for the US). Captives who signed up to be double agents were offered millions of dollars from the CIA’s (read American taxpayers’ money) secret account (Codename ‘Pledge’), along with safety for their famili ...
China and the great game [By - Haifa Peerzada] The conflict in Afghanistan is becoming more complex by the day, spreading beyond its borders into south Asia. There are four main parties: the US, Pakistan, Afghanistan itself and the Afghan Taliban. Others, previously remotely involved, are increasingly drawn in-the most prominent being China. China's growth rate of close to 10 per cent per annum makes it a global economic hub with which to reckon, second only to the US. This may not however be socially sustainable as it perpetuates inequality in income, heavily concentrated in China's southern coastal area. Moreover, the country's ethnic cohesion is uncertain: apart from minority tensions, the Han majority is itself fractured among ethno-linguistic communities which have experienced sustained segregation. Fear of becoming a target of non-state actors has put the authorities in Beijing on their guard. That fear was exacerbated by the recent violent attack in Tiananmen Square, allegedly by members of the Mus ...
So the American comprising of about 16 national intelligence agencies have produced a report, according to the findings of that report, (a banned extremist group) will obtain strength in Pakistan, and it will get a strong hold over the country, and its activities will increase by year 2017. Alongside the intelligence report's revelation about it has discovered that Afghan Taliban will regain influence in Afghanistan, which will be stronger than their current position, thus what and forces have conquered in Afghanistan during Afghan war will go back in the hands of NOTE: There are some suspicions attached with the said report. In my opinion, Pakistan has suffered greater damage from Afghan-insurgency since the inception of in Afghanistan compared to Lashkar e Taiba, as various foreign players are involved in the war going on in the rogue state specifically where it enjoys acceptance and cooperation from Afghan government and US itself, however it has become a source of damage to Pakistan causing a perpetua ...

Plot to attack Presidential Palace and Defense Ministry foiled Dec 10, 2013 - 23:03 Source: Pajhwok KABUL (PAN): Twenty-two insurgents, including a Pakistani suicide bomber and senior Afghan Taliban figures, have been arrested in a plot to attack the Presidential Palace, the Ministry of Defence and the Kabul Airport, the spy service said on Tuesday. The National Directorate of Security (NDS) said the arrests were made over the past three weeks in various parts of the central capital. NDS spokesman Farid Shamal told a press conference the detainees included a Taliban-designated district chief for the Khak-i-Jabbar district, Abdul Aleem. Aleem had been tasked with carrying out terrorist attacks by the Waziristan-based Haqqani Network and “Peshawar Taliban Council” during the three-day Loya Jirga session, he said. Attended by 2,500 delegates, the grand assembly last month asked the government to conclude the security deal with the US this year. Shamal said a large quantity of weapons, including 11 mortar ...

Prior to their movement, Maulana Sufi Muhammad led TNSM in Malakand Division was the first Islamic movement to raise the banner of Shariah in early 1990s. Afghans were also involved in the movement and it became so menacing that an operation led by IGFC Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) had to be launched in 1994. Movement died down after the government agreed to impose Shariah laws in Malakand. Later on Sufi along with his 15000 followers joined Afghan Taliban in their battle against US led invaders in October 2001. Most managed to trek back after ouster of Mullah Omar’s regime one month later. In 2007, Sufi’s firebrand son-in-l ...
Karzai Blackmailing USA. The president of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai is constantly blackmailing USA by not signing the Bilateral security agreement and saying that he would do so once the general elections are held in Afghanistan in April. Although the Loyi Girga (the grand assembly of Afghan people) has approved the agreement and asked the president to sign it. Americans want that Karzai signs it at the end of this year so that they can decide how much troops they have to maintain in Afghanistan plus the bases. By not signing the Bilateral agreement Mr Karzai is not only distracting the issue but at the same time frustrating the Americans by putting some conditions before he would sing the agreement. The principal demand by Karzai is bring the Afghan Taliban on negotiating table as well exert pressure on Pakistan to use her influence on Taliban to come and discuss ways and means to establish peace in Afghanistan. There are other demands from Karzai side which would delay the signing of the agreement. ...
LA IKRAHU FIDDIN "There is no compulsion (jabar) in Islam" In context of "Afghan Taliban" rule . its not Islamic in my opinion...to force someone to follow certain orders and even if they have violated the "rules" this is not the way to disgrace humans .when I was in UET back in 94-99 in lahore, i had some class mates from Chaman, Ayub Khan Achakzai...he used to tell me very horrible stories...true or not but I was disgusted...one story told that a man taking his pregnant wife to hospital while on the way at road block so called Afghan "Taliban" stopped them and ordered to pray namaz...he begged for a leave in case of serious emergency but "Talibans" were unmoved... Allah knows better but I dont support this version of Islam...but still there are people supporting and fighting and cursing others in favor of Afghan Talibans. we would be successful only by following Shariah and sunnah and Quran, for sure.but Islam and Shariah as a system, not just punishments.Islam as a full package...what we are doing as a ...

Nawaz Sharif to visit Kabul on Saturday ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will visit Kabul on Saturday after he accepted an invitation by Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai. Foreign office spokesperson Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Thursday said the agenda of the visit would cover a broad spectrum of bilateral relations, peace and reconciliation process and regional cooperation. Pakistan attaches high importance to its relations with Afghanistan, he added. Pakistan is hoping to play a facilitating role in the peace process in Afghanistan which has elections next year, along with a drawdown of coalition forces. It has released several Afghan Taliban prisoners so that they can mediate in the talks with the militants. On Tuesday too it released three more Taliban prisoners as part of its attempt to facilitate the peace process in Afghanistan. Though there was no statement on this, a government official confirmed the release of the three persons - Mullah Abdul Ahad Jahangirwal, who is reported to be an adviser ...

A deluge of heads of state as well as intelligence agency professionals have gone on record over the past nine years to state their belief that Bin Laden was likely dead, after it became clear that the Al-Qaeda leader's health was in severe decline as a result of kidney disease at the end of 2001. These include; - Former CIA officer and hugely respected intelligence & foreign policy expert Robert Baer, who in 2008 when asked about Bin Laden by a radio host responded, "Of course he is dead." - On December 26, 2001, Fox News, citing a Pakistan Observer story, reported that the Afghan Taliban had pronounced Bin Laden dead and buried him in an unmarked grave. - On January 18, 2002, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf announced: "I think now, frankly, he is dead." - On July 17, 2002, the then-head of counterterrorism at the FBI, Dale Watson, told a conference of law enforcement officials that "I personally think he [Bin Laden] is probably not with us anymore." - In October 2002, Afghan President Hamid Karzai ...
Sitting with fingers crossed [Dr K.N. Pandita] A question of increasing disquietude, not only for the administration --- civilian and military --- but also for the entire nation is what will be the security scenario of the region lying beyond our north-western border once the US-led NATO troops begin to withdraw from Afghanistan in 2014. NATO withdrawal will begin in a situation in which remnants of Afghan Taliban-Al Qaeda combine are still potently capable of reassembling. Anti-American Pakistani Taliban (TTP), besides other known radical Islamist groups in Pakistan, is making common cause with them. Afghan Taliban militants are forging stronger bonds with TTP. Sectarian outfits in Pakistan essay for better bargaining chips to negotiate in Afghanistan. The contention or the lurking expectation that US-NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan would not be in vacuum is very frail keeping in mind the new reality obtaining from two decades-old religion based militancy in the region. The new perception or reality ...
Pakistan has quietly released three senior Afghan Taliban leaders, including a close aide of Mullah Omar
The Police 10,600 disabled died in 10 months in 2010-11 because of Atos this was by admission of the DWP. Yet there was no Police investigation, however the EU are now launching an investigation. If there are mistakes in hospitals there will be an investigation, sometimes by Police, in fact the Government have now stipulated Nursing staff can get 5 years in prison for cases of neglect. A soldier is facing life in prison for killing a wounded Afghan Taliban, fair enough you say and yet 827 people have died in Police custody in 10 years and no one has been prosecuted. Seems if you pile on them and kill them it's fine but shooting, unless you're in the underground with a backpak, isn't. Slavery and starvation isn't that a crime ? The papers have been full of how they rescued 3 women from domestic slavery and presumably the couple will serve a long prison sentence. This obviously doesn't apply to other forms of slavery and abuse, the type Government force through in statutes. Where are the Police and the law ...
The Pak-Afghan tangle The Nation By Samson Simon Sharaf November 18, 2013 The tangle is complicated and confusing. Who backs who is a riddle difficult to answer? As the deadline for a tactical but not strategic withdrawal of NATO-ISAF begins next year, the local trajectories of violence as predicted in these columns become clearer. The loyalties of actors involved in these crisscross; difficult to evaluate; who supports whom; and who attacks who? Afghan Mujahedeen were created by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto against Sardar Daud. Arab Fighters later Al Qaeda was provided by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Libya and USA. Afghan Taliban backed by Pakistan did not support Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda mauled by Afghan Taliban left Afghanistan for Sudan then moved back on invitation of President Rabbani on C130 aircrafts. In 1996, USA rejected the Pak-Afghan roadmap for stability. Iran, Turkey and Russia supported Dostam (once a Taliban), in massacre of Taliban at Mazar Sharif. Sectarian outfits of Pakistan joined the Afghan conflict backed ...
From Nek Muhammad to Maulana Fazlul Once Pakistan consented to fight US imposed war on terror as a Frontline State, it was asked by USA to flush out about 1000 foreign militants from FATA failing which the US military would be constrained to barge in. At that time, there were no Taliban in FATA or elsewhere in Pakistan except for a small percentage of Afghan Taliban fans. Regular troops ex 11 Corps entered Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency for the first time and from there proceeded to Shawal Valley in North Waziristan (NW) and then to South Waziristan (SW) in 2002 to launch operations against foreigners as well as their sympathizers. Their entry into SW and Musharraf’s attempts to appease American paymasters sowed seeds of mistrust and gave birth to Pakistani Taliban. Terrorism in Pakistan grew when Pak Army at the behest of USA fought the militants in Mehsud belt in SW and later in NW and authorized employment of drones. Foreign agencies based in Kabul on the other hand provided massive covert support to ...
Why is India hosting CIA and Taliban? - Sandhya Jain, By facilitating a meeting between America’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Afghan Taliban in Goa, the UPA Government seems to have unilaterally compromised India’s strategic interests in Kabul and its friendly relations with Tehran, besides ‘forgiving’ the Taliban for its dubious role during the hijack of Indian Airlines aircraft IC-814 by Pakistani terrorists in 1999. Although an obliging media has maintained discreet silence on the issue, the episode would be known to all major world capitals, particularly as Sartaj Aziz, advisor to Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, was in New Delhi at the same time, meeting separatist leaders from Jammu & Kashmir. As Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram (also a former Home Minister) was present at the same Tehelka-sponsored event in Goa, it is inconceivable that all these events were not closely coordinated and connected. The development is bound to have a grim fallout for India, as Pakistan is a close al ...

ISLAMABAD: The appointment of Mullah Fazlullah as new chief of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) cannot be applicable until the Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Omar’s approval for the post, The News International reported. Unlike the Mehsud’s who were from Waziristan of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), Mullah Fazlullah hails from Sawat Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK). According to the sources, the decision was made to avoid rumours of split within the banished outfit (TTP) turning into a reality.Interestingly, TTP’s Shahidullah Shahid announced Fazlullah as new chief from Afghanistan. The underlying impression given by Shahid was that a meeting of the Taliban council (or shura) was held in Afghanistan as its last meeting held in North Waziristan was where a US drone strike had killed Hakimullah Mehsud. According to sources quoted in the report, the 17-member central shura held several sessions for three days to reach a consensus on appointing a new chief as up to six commanders were vying for the ...
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) appointment of a new hardline leader opposed to peace talks and with a long history of attacks against the military could push the army into launching a fresh offensive, analysts said Friday. The election of Maulana Fazlullah, notorious for leading the militants’ brutal two-year rule in the Swat valley, is like a “red rag to a bull”, one analyst said. It could also raise tensions with Kabul at a critical juncture as US-led forces withdraw from Afghanistan after 12 years of war. While Kabul has long accused Islamabad of supporting the Afghan Taliban, Fazlullah has orchestrated cross-border attacks from his hideout in eastern Afghanistan, and Pakistan suspects its neighbour’s intelligence services of supporting him. Fazlullah, nicknamed Mullah Radio for his fiery sermons over the airwaves denouncing polio vaccination campaigns and female education, is renowned as an uncompromising commander. Intelligence agencies believes he is linked to the failed attempt to ...
Welcome to a new era of violence, bomb blasts and suicide attacks. The divided-into-52-groups Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan now successfully unites under the Leadership of Mullah Fazlullah, who happens to be an eye-candy of Afghan Taliban too. Now you can celebrate the death of Hakimullah Mehsud + Peace Talks by your beloved USA and justify drone strikes. Oh and don't worry about anyone calling Mehsud a Martyr, we all are going to embrace that kuttun wali martyrdom soon.
Drone attacks diplomacy [Dr K.N. Pandita] Killing of TTP chief Hikmatuallah Mehsud along with five more commanders of TTP in a recent American drone attack has triggered a new debate in Pakistani political circles. Baitullah Mehsud, the predecessor of Hikmatullah and the founder of Tehrik-e-Taliban-i-Pakistan (TTP), a confederate of Al-Qaeda-Afghan Taliban and also in liaison with Haqqani and Hekmatyar terrorist groups was killed in drone attack in 2009. TTP spokesperson Shahidullah cast doubts on Pakistan civilian government and the army colluding with the CIA in latter’s drone attacks in North Waziristan. In a statement he said, “We were waiting for a meeting while Pakistan Army and government were sitting with the US finalising a deal to “sell” us”. Unnerved by the belligerent mood of the TTP, Pakistan foreign office summoned the American Ambassador Olson in Islamabad and conveyed to him Pakistan’s disapproval of drone attacks. The Ambassador, without elucidating his remark, remained conte ...

Though the killing of Hakimullah Mehsud by unmanned US drone strike, is a good thing and a positive step toward peace. However if we look at the history of US drone strikes, every-time there has been a drone strike only Pakistani Taliban leaders have been killed. From Nek Mohammad to Baitullah Mehsud, to mullah Nazir and now Hakimullah Mehsud. The question that arises is why only Pakistani Taliban are being targeted, why there has never been any members of the Afghan Taliban. Please share you thoughts and opinions on this!
