Pakistan finally learned that you can not deal with radical Islamic insurgents. Their only goal is to smake a radical religious state based on fairytale beliefs.

This headline is mis-leading. It is NOT a “full scale” offensive, it is only targeting Kazaks, and not Pakistanis who are equally involved in terrorism.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif seems to have come out of his delusion that these militants can be reasoned with. That their word has any value, that they are not a cancer needing to be removed from the country.

This offensive is to be expected although its effectiveness is in doubt. The US helped create this mess when they raised massive numbers of islamic insurgents to fight the Soviet Union with no plan to retrain them for peaceful transitions after the war. Young men who have known no profession other than combat may not become peaceful just because the “official” war has ended. This offensive is likely to chase Taliban from Pakistan into Afghanistan until the “victorious” campaign ends.

Further, the US and NATO have decided to extend their occupation of Afghanistan for two more years to 2016. Russia, China, and four central Asian lands form a military, political, and military alliance in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation that has agreed to watch Afghanistan after the US and NATO leave. Why the Obama regime wants to stay in the region for two more years when we have failed for thirteen years is baffling. We have SIX SUCKERS willing to take over this debacle! Fortunately, we can spend two more years shipping supplies halfway around the world, loading them onto trucks in Karachi, driving them along the 850 miles of road toward Kabul, and watching them explode into fireballs when the Taliban ambush them with rocket propelled grenades and machine guns. It is nice to know that we can entertain muslim rebels for two more years with ad hoc fireworks displays at our expense.

What’s with the whole “issue threats” and “take responsibility” thing?

I’ve never understood that.

I mean the attack seems to “speak for itself.”

In any case…”good luck with the offensive.” Sounds like a tough, gritty neighborhood. Tough place to grow up in i imagine.
