The Pakis won’t like this very much, considering their country is a safe haven for Taliban and Al Qaeda.
US forces are massing on the Pakistan border in eastern Afghanistan amid reports of an imminent drone missile offensive against fighters from the feared Haqqani Network, a Taliban faction which operates from safe havens in Pakistan’s North Waziristan Agency, Pakistan Army sources have confirmed.
The scale of the American build-up, including helicopter gunships, heavy artillery and hundreds of American and Afghan troops, caused panic in north Waziristan where tribal militias who feared they could be targeted gathered in the capital Miranshah to coordinate their response.
Local officials in the Federally-Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) warned that Pakistan’s armed forces would repel any incursion across the border by American forces, but military sources in Islamabad and Afghan officials suggested the build-up was part of a coordinated operation.
They weren’t too pleased that we snuck over the border and killed Bin Laden, and they’ve never been thrilled over the occasional heretofore drone attacks that target and kill the very muslim terrorists they harbor.
Pakistan shows no sign of getting rid of its muslim terrorist enclaves. Maybe a wayward drone will find its way to Islamabad.
