The Pakistanis are going in

I've got to admit, I thought they'd quit long before they got to Beitullah Mehsud and Waziristan.
Pakistan braced for militant reprisals on Monday as the army conducted softening-up operations ahead of an assault on the stronghold of Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud, one of al Qaeda's main allies.

Now, of course, they'll face something of the same problem the US has faced across the border, of militants melting into the population only to reemerge, but it's still something. It's still some pressure. (...and a sign that the governments feeling more secure?)


  • Waziristan will be a tough nut to crack. Massive bombing would be my guess.

  • Well, they're reportedly starting "softening" which I'm assuming is bombing and artillery.

    And you know the US has drones circling every suspected hideout looking for movement.
