Conflict in Pakistan

After recent Pakistani military operations in Pakistan's own Swat Valley to push out Taliban insurgents who had taken control of the region, its operations are now more focused on the Taliban strongholds in the South Waziristan region. Pakistani troops and Taliban militants have been locked in intense clashes recently in the tribal area which has killed more than 150 people. Relief workers say that more than 120,000 people have been displaced by the fighting. Insurgent responses to the increased military pressure have included numerous bombings and suicide attacks, killing and injuring scores across Pakistan in recent weeks. Just today a car bomb in a busy marketplace in Peshawar killed more than 93 people, as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an official visit - announcing the latest in a series of U.S. aid packages to Pakistan.

A car bomb has torn through a busy marketplace in northwestern Pakistan, collapsing several buildings, setting fires and killing at least 93 people including 60 women and children, mere hours after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in the country on an official visit.

Hope the Pakistani people find a new leader among themselves, before the situation gets completely out of hand. The period of chaos in Pakistan is too important for the world to be missed, and it looks like the chicken has come home to roost. It's time when the military and intelligence distances itself from the extremists- atleast for their own survival.

Yes thats very sad but its not the truth after all. I feel for the citizen of the country and I am an Indian. I have never visited Pakistan but people from India who have say that Pakistanis are one of the nicest people and totally opposite to what the media or country politicians portray. I wish everyone in the world will rise above the voilence and start leaving like human being.

even after enduring all of this, people of pakistan are being asked to do more ? ironic!

and what does US do ? as soon as Pakistan starts an operation to eliminate the militants, they vacate the border posts, so that the militants could slip into afghanistan and come back some other day ? and keep asking pakistan to do more ?

more than $40 billion dollars lost in economy, more than 8,000 citizens killed, more than 6,000 soldiers lost, what else the world needs from us ?

There are 9 intelligence agencies from different countries now operating in Pakistan! Among them India's RAW & Isreali Mossad are the most dangerous or to put it correctly are playing a dangerous game.

Many of the bombings are actually handiwork of these criminal agencies and part of a larger game plan to destabilize the country so that its Nuclear Weapons could be dismantled. The Indians are training Afghan Factions of Taliban that are against the Pakistani Taliban in training centres in Afghanistan while Mossad is supplying them with sophisticated communication equipments and arms which even the Pakistani Army does not posses!

Its time the Pakistani Public revolted & kicked the US in the butt. Nothing short of a revolution will change the situation in Pakistan.

Surely this is what happens when a state turns a blind eye to radicalism, either through apathy, corruption, fear or a combination of all three. The Taliban have been allowed to call the shots in Pakistan for too long, and now the Pakistani authorities have a much greater problem in rooting them out. Time and again the Pakistani government, police and military have proven themselves grossly incompetent; not two weeks ago the Taliban walked into a military base and took hostages! And this is a country with nuclear capability. They might as well just hand the launch codes to the Taliban and be done with it.

million dollar question. Answer is harsh and simple too. First it was CIA in russian time. then in afghan civil war, it was al-qaeda. Today its indian. When they recover the stashes of weapons, it is found to be produced in india and russia. Now I can imagine the russian weapons there but how indian weapons getting to them is beyond my comprehension.

The terrorist in province of Balochistan openly admit for taking aid from Indian government. The arrests that were made after the terrorist attack on Sri Lankan. The rockets fired on buses are used by Indian army. The CID agency warned the government on January 22, 2009 with appx number of RAW agents and possible attack locations.

The evidence is out in open. Every time terrorist are arrested, they have some weapon used by indian army. Do the math.

but why do terrorist kill innocent people, cant they simply attack army and police. whats the point of car bombs.

One thing is sure jihadi groups kill more muslims then they kill anyone else. they are efficiently killing their own people.

They defeated the Russians wearing sandles and no body armor -not even helmets. Now it's time for Pakistan and Afghanistan to eliminate the Taliban and Al Queda forever.

This incident has RAW and Mossad written all over it. If anyone here or reader has military know how, he will agree. 150kg of what exploded to cause this damage and fire? It's no other than RDX which is also confirmed by investigation teams. Now RDX is not made at homes or with any home made material. It is not an IED. So where did this RDX which is made under controlled environment and in this quantity got in the hands of these militants? The answer lies in the unexploded RDX being recovered inside Pakistan with RDX boxes saying "Made in India" and material that without a doubt be tracked back to India.
These militants have frequency hopping radios. Can someone find them for me in any market even be it arms market in the world (You wont find it because the FHR work on classified frequencies and once compromised, they are useless, so no chance it'll be in a shelf in some illegal arms market). So who gave them this advanced communication equipment? Has some one thought, they are resisting a professional Army of Pakistan. Where are the getting the ammo from to fight such prolonged war?
The hidden hands has to be the one who's objectives are fulfilled with each incident that happens. In all honesty, the virdict is beyond doubt. It is INdia whos activities in Afghanistan are the main cause of such incidents in Pakistan. I hope that with prayers, Pakistan government find balls to hit targets in Afghanistan. Pakistan has the logistics, capability and need to distroy Indian counsulates run by Israeli and Indian intelligence agnecies. The day Pakistan does a BOLD and Preemtive strike on these targets in Afghanistan, such incidents as in Peshawar will end.

Pakistani Army and politicians have wasted all aid from USA et al., just ot spread terror in the region, encourage religious fanatics to run around making the life of ordinary Pakistanis miserable. They did enough harm to East Pakistan that it had to separate. But instead of admitting these deeds, people blame others for their ills. Pakistan has ignored the world opinion and had been exporter of terrorist. Now it is coming back and haunting them. It is doubtful they will learn any thing from their mistakes. Poor Pakistanis are suffering their fate. US also is wasting tax dollars on these ungrateful scoundrals.

As you sow so shall you reap.Islamic terrorist camps operate with impunity inside pakistan for attack on the people of the indian republic .Now these monsters are biting the very hand which was feeding them.I find it ridiculous that some ignorant pakistani people here are blaming indian or israeli intelligence for the mess they themselves created.

This pakistani army drama against taliban always starts up as and when there is a huge monetary aid being expected from the US .The mess called taliban in afghanistan was created by pakistan which deprvied the people of afghanistan basic human rights and turned once a beautiful country into a graveyard.They were liberated by the US in 2001 which the pakistanis still resent .Well they cant show their resent against the US since US feeds them who else will they blame?

So Pakis will get some more billions from the usual quarters (read US) and move on with what they are so good at. It is difficult to see who are Pakis and who are terrorists - unless few thousands more die due to violence within Pakistan, no clear and polarization will ever occur in that country to oppose the violence.

Pakistanis (even the educated ones) are perennially in a state of denial and manage to find someone to blame. For God's sake, at least now, accept that you have a problem and that you have created it. That's the first step towards solving it.

@ EagleHannan - I think this is not the time to blame RAW (India) or Mossad (Israel), I think it's more to do with a fight against ignorance & poverty. Pakistan is on the brink of being a collapsed state. If Pakistan's nuclear arsenal were to get into the hands of Talibans, it would not be in the Interest of Govt of India's interest as there would be a very good chance of them wanting to use it against India....I think what is needed most is to invest in human capital in Pakistan, educate them, teach the tribals livelihood .

LOL!!!
First you "give birth" to the monster! Then you let the monster loose against your neighbors! And when your "friends" complain about the noise that the monster makes, you try to chain it up! In retaliation, the monster attacks its caretakers! When that happens the caretakers complain that the monster is being fed by the neighbors (who were being attacked by the monster in the first place). And to prove it, they say they found crumbs of bread that were not made in the caretaker's oven!

...Since there were so many fairy tales in these comments, i thought i'll give you one more to read.
"Do the math" indeed! India is suffering from state-sponsored (read pakistan fostered, trained, and encouraged) terror for the past 6 decades. Also bring into the equation the fact that pakistan is an country with a unstable past, a tendency to radical religion and has in the past openly encouraged jihadis who were then called "freedom fighters". Shall we dig up the archives?
And despite allegations, RAW really can't burst a diwali cracker, cause it can't even protect its own citizen. So if you want to find the solution to this ugliness, pick up a mirror!

I guess i shouldn't have read the comments before posting this. But now that my frustration (@63) is out of the system, let me add that I woke up today with the pictures of the Peshawar attack in the front page of the newsdaily. And these were very sad and disturbing pictures, much like the pictures in this thread. Despite misgivings, and suspicion about India, we as a country felt the pain. Cause we have been in such a situation much too often. Hence the reason why so many of the comments above are in commiseration.
My comments (@63) could be wrong, and just like many other countries, our "intelligence" departments may be at work creating panic in pakistan, in retaliation against what we have been up against for more than half a century. And just like in pakistan, Indians never get to know the truth because of brain-wash from the media. But these are less likely to happen because we have a fairly free press (redundant phrase) and any hanky-panky on these lines would have been splashed on the front pages long back. Instead of focusing hate-ridden energy outward at every one of your neighbor, why not focus constructive energy inward and look for ways to put down the menace. Remember that the taliban leader has been quoted as saying that as soon as they take over islamabad, their first task would be to destroy India. And India "sponsors" them? How? Why?

@ Grady, much of the violence you're looking at is a result of Bush trying to 'change things' in the Middle East.

Fact check:
1. Whether flood or terrorist attack or meteor or earthquake strike in Pak, "BLAME INDIA" - You will never go wrong in making public believe it. As stupid it is, you can't wake up someone who pretend to sleep.
2. INDIA and PAK suffer terrorism very badly. The country who nurture it will suffer most eliminating it. Educate yourself which country has chronicle problem in doing so in the name of Jihad or religious.
3. Why Taliban is in PAK. If Northwest province is part of PAK, why they cut it loose every time after army leave the area without any check post. Oh I got it. Because they have INDIA to take care -- is there any more stupidity left in brainwashing people.
4. The aim of Taliban is enforcing Islamic law and terror for their own interest. Who are the country recognize Taliban when they are in power in Afganistan. Guess what.. Only one country in the world - Pak. Why the hell they are against them now. Oh.. $$$ from US. If you guys have courage stand in one place, you may have some peace.

I hope this violence open up the mind and eye of people in PAK and help them focusing more on economic problem than always finding someone to blame for something they have no control or lot of control (origin) in it.

God bless Pak.

Wake up or sleep and found yourself going down. I hope people of Pak start being more aware of terrorism that destroy their country and not support it for any form or against any country or people of particular region. You create it in 80's and nurture it in 90's and fight it in 20's.

CNN did a piece yesterday on the public opinion of America in Pakistan, friend or foe. Not to get into any political slant or commentary on CNN or any other news network, but clearly, there are people (and probably always will be) who resent foriegn influence and control. Aside any political or religious stance, it is simply devastating to see the imagery depicted of what one human is capable of doing to another human.

Ever heard of the hereafter? Don't be so naive. If there were no religion (read hereafter), why shouldn't each one of us become a Hitler? For all the sufferings he caused, out of his mental illness, no punishment on the face of earth can be justified. It's all being written, God has a track record for each one of us; so, appreciate the blessings, condemn this killing, find the ONLY true religion (& please ignore galaxy for a couple of years).

We are not animals, but why? & who decides? Please think.

And for your current stance, make sure you are 1000% sure before you die that you'll not face the only God on the day of judgement. Be open to common sense, please.

Who is being naive here? The whole idea of the "hereafter" is precisely what is motivating these terrorists to blow themselves up (so they can enjoy the 72 "virgins" in paradise).

>> If there were no religion (read hereafter), why shouldn't each one of us become a Hitler?
How about if I ask you, "Why should everyone become a Hitler?" You don't need religion to be good... Just be good for goodness' sake.
Just the fact that you think you are good because of some loving, heavenly dictator who'll fry you in hellfire if you weren't, tells me how depraved you are as a human being. Or maye your religion made you so. These terrorists are just as certain about their Allah being the only true god, as you are about your god (may be a little more.. they're willing to murder themselves and others in their belief).

>> We are not animals, but why? & who decides? Please think.
For the gazillionth time.. we ARE animals. You could say we are "more" evolved than most of the animals, but that doesn't change the fact that we are one of them.

>>And for your current stance, make sure you are 1000% sure before you die that you'll not face the only God on the day of judgement. Be open to common sense, please.
Do make sure you're good in your god's eyes. But, like you said, also use your common sense in practising just what is necessary to be good. For starters, condemning the others who do not believe in your god to hellfire is not one of them.

If you ask me, my only moral principle is "live and let live". I think that pretty much sums everything. We have but one life to live.. let's live it well.

Indians having a hearty laugh at Pakistan's expense, as can be seen from the comments here. There is nothing more left to say about India's hand in these attacks inside Pakistan that hasn't been said by Pakistanis in this forum already. So let's cut down to it.

A message to the Indians: America is losing the war, and it is losing it fast. Afghanistan is becoming its bleeding wound that will drain its military as well as financial strength. They are stuck there. The oil and gas they wanted to get out of Central Asia through Afghanistan and Pakistan is proving to be very expensive for them. They can't even get out of there now. The countries surrounding Afghanistan like China and Russia wont let them. Not to mention, India itself because it can see now what will happen to it once USA leaves the neighborhood. But alas, they'll have to leave and go back to see whether they can prevent their own country from an imminent civil war. :)

It is useless to expect any kind of understanding from the West because they get everything fed to them through their media conglomerates. They still can't differentiate between Al Qaeda and Taliban, let alone between Afghan Taliban and Pakistani Taliban and what different agendas they have. It's too much for them to understand. They just want to bomb the region, lay their pipelines, and get out of there. And most of them would still believe that they are actually HELPING those nations they are bombing, and spreading their very unwanted, unwelcome, and cursed western democracy and capitalism.

Even though they can't understand all that, what they WILL understand is when the resulting economic crisis comes and bites them in the behind. Three years maximum and they'll be fighting amongst themselves for food, mark these words. All economists worth their grain all predicting it. Their dollar is falling, their deficit is phenomenal, and their debt is in trillions, job unemployment is double digits and shows no signs of improving - all this, and they are net importers. Now they've even started taking dictations from China on how to run their economy. Because they want to borrow more money from China for survival, and now it comes with strings attached. :)

So that's your big daddy you have been riding on since they came to the region in 2001. At that time, India didn't miss a beat and started sprouting its agency offices which it calls 'consulates' near Pak-Afghan border. It took this opportunity to settle scores with Pakistan but didn't realize that USA can't stay there forever. It will leave soon. And Taliban will take back Afghanistan. And lo and behold, you'll see these blasts and attacks in Pakistan disappear. But then it is going to be only you, Pakistan, and your little 'consulates' in Afghanistan. :)

You name the city Bombay - and drop a bomb ...hundreds die ..... You named another city Peshawar ...and dropped another one .. another 100 dies .... histroy divided israel and palestien ... and several thousand die .... in all the deaths ... you know who looses most .... that mother whoes 2 yr old had no clue that the world which she gifted her kid was not really a world where she should him got him/her into on the first place ...... that mother's tear dosen't come with a national identity tagged with it .... ASK your mother ...and she will tell you .. that the only response to these pics can be a silent prayer !

So in all earnest ...please stop this India/Pakistan/America/Afgan/Arab/Jew mud-slinging ! It really dosen't fit the ocassion. If you can - spare a paryer and that way you can contribute to the moment the most.

@ 82
the thought of the hereafter should be the one that should prevent these people from killing somany innocent people.Our Prophet once said to his companions"Have you seen the destitute,in my eyes,the destitute will be this man.he would have prayed,fasted and done other acts of worship.but he would have hurt this man,taken wealth from another and shed the blood of another."and you don't know about the pleasures of paradise,so better not talk about it.
i once came across a dead insect and began to think,surely it is not the same when we die,there is something in us,that Divine Breath of God,which makes us rise above animals,unfortunately many people donot use the gift they have been given and turn out to be the lowest of the low,even is scientific terms,can the animals read or write,so we are the people with the so called intelligence.
God is the same for all people,He is One God and He is your God and He is mine,live and let live is our principle too.God says in the Quran"There is no creature in the heavens or the earth but forms communities like you".whenever a Muslim plants a tree that provided food for birds,insects or man,it is counted as a charity on his part.live and let live.

One can't help but notice, of course, the fact that with very few exceptions--the girl #8, the peaceful protesters in #13, the schoolgirls in #23--these pictures all show men, nothing but men. History has shown once again that anytime a religion-based culture oppresses and devalues females and keeps them out of the processes that define and maintain that culture, Bad Things Happen. Here it's a society based on permanent warfare, thousands of years' worth, and with no end in sight. The easy and ignorant thing to do, of course, is to blame it all on Islam...but there are numerous examples of the same kind of thing happening all over the world and all throughout history with other religions, as well; Christianity certainly has enough blood on its hand in this regard.

The answer is so simple, really: let's all grow up and get rid of our silly superstitions. Reject your unfounded stone-age rites and rituals and beliefs. God--however you define him or her or it, or what name you use--simply doesn't exist, period, so religious folks are worshiping phantoms, chimera. These pictures are further proof of that (as if needed).

i don't have a solution to terrorism. but something should be done. according to me the easiest way to stop terrorism is to ensure no more recruitment in their group. i am not sure how they convince people to join them. i guess they pick quotes from quran (out of context) & make people believe that allah is asking them to kill people. we should some how educate people about true islam. i remember seeing a documentary on natgeo or discovery where they showed an interview of ex-terrorist. he quit terrorism just by seeing a body being pulled out of bomblast site.

terrorism was not created by the people of Pakistan. It was by some extremist elements. The world did not stand still while Nazis massacred millions saying it was a problem only in Germany.

so you expect people to live a peaceful life,without bloodshed, on this planet,c'mon in the 21st century,we are humans and we all tend to make mistakes, there are somany who make mischief on this earth,our duty is to show them the right way and to make them understand,there has always been fight between good and evil and good ultimately wins.i'm not trying to propagate war,but just you shouldnot think seeing these people that there is no God,but to help God by helping the people.

I belong to Dera Ismail Khan, the place u might have seen in these pictures, our Army has captured many Indian spies from our Dera Ismail Khan, these are not Talibaans these are foreign sponsored terrorists ( I dont like Talibans I am against there policies). Before South Waziristan operation (currently going on) America has vacated many check posts at Afghan border. Actual things and reality is not shown to general public. No one knows what is the game going on behind all this, what are the objectives.

Its high time for Pakistan to take action against these criminals. Pakistan should think about the kids who are the future of Pakistan.

The Americans think they are the smartest people on earth. The ISI is so devious, I applaud their devlish brains and their double game, they have managed to easily hoodwink the American thinktank for years. To give the 'compliant terrorists' with Indian weapons is a simple task for them. Also, you seem to have a very very poor memory. The terrorists (who had so-called Indian weapons) blasted rockets and bullets onto the SriLankan team bus, and then walked away in the boroughs, started their mobikes and drove away as if you and your friends were going home after a movie. (yes, check out the video from Pak News channels). This was supposed to be a secured complex as this was scheduled route. If this does not imply complicity, you are in fool's paradise and live on. Barring maybe 1 % of the top militants, army officers, ISI intelligence officers and maybe a few politicians nobody in Pak as well as in US has no clue what the hell is happening in Pakistan.

re#114
so sad to see your comment,what i cannot believe is that it has been written by an indian,maybe u don't know what Islam is really about.there was a time in our history when our Prophet and his people would be tortured,a man and his parents would be taken out to be crucified,and the masters would kill his parents before him and continue to torture him until he would leave his faith and a slave would be taken out in the hot sun,thrown on the hot sand and a huge rock would be placed on him,only because he loved his Lord,it was at that time that Muslims fled for their faith,even after leaving,their enemies continued to threaten them with wars,so Muslims were given the permission to fight because they had been wronged,c'mon,we have the right to defend our lives.
The word patience is mentioned 114 times in Quran"Defend evil with what is better and there will be between whom there was enmity become as if they were close friends,none will be able to attain it except the patient,none will attain it except those with great fortune".
we only want to practise and spread our religion,and i'm proud to be an indian,where i can practise it,i'm proud of my country,i'm proud of our heritage,india is a great example of how Muslims and Hindus can unite and live peacefully together,let us then stay united and not divide.

Let's call a spade a spade folks and stop pretending that India or Israel are at work in Pakistan and admit that ISI and the Pakistani military jihadi complex is doing all of this to keep getting $$$$$$$ from the US. Most Pakistanis from Punjab and Sindh are basically Indians in essence and I don't understand their blind hatred towards India when they really are Indians themselves. How come these bombings don't take place in Lahore or Karachi where Punjabis and Sindhis live but only in Peshawar where Pashtuns live? Pakistanis are in denial and are always looking for scapegoats.

Anyhow I agree there are three sides for any argument 1. Your side 2. My side and 3. The right side. But keep in mind to argue fairly, " Call a spade, a spade."

What's wrong with Pakistan can be seen in any photograph of any street scene, including the ones in this portfolio: all the people visible are men. And men without women are madmen; it's as simple as that.

When women cease to be excluded from Pakistani society, the madness will cease.

Lest I be misunderstood, allow me to add that my point has nothing to do with Islam; you'll see plenty of women on the street in Indonesia, for example, or Egypt, and those are Muslim countries.

As the explanation for photo #12 states, the word "lashkar" refers to a militia. The photo is of one local lashkar, not THE Lashkar (whoever they might be.)

I think you are confusing this particular lashkar with Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is widely regarded to have sponsored the Mumbai attacks. The literal translation of Lashkar-e-Taiba would be "Army of the Good." The take-home point is that there are many lashkars, and it is important to distinguish between them. They have different memberships and different goals.

Pak's army under Gen Zia ul Haq is reponsible for putting us in this mess. If he had not supported the war against Russians we could have stayed clear of this. Later Bennazir & ISI further ruined Afghanistan by supporting the Talibans. Afghanis detest us Pakistanis for ruining their country in the 30 yr civil war.
Now the solution is to get all S Asia togther & put in a S Asian army to fight this meance. And if we look at the war fromthe Taliban;s point of view, the eliete has transferred $200/ billion or more from Pak thru corruption . And the more we borrow the hier the corruption.

Terrorists are terrorists irrespective of their race or religion. Only one thing is common, they do everything to come to limelight.
We have to see the root cause and erradicate it if someone is sincere to the humanity.
In afghanistan, 176 Billion dolars have been spent by the US to elimiate or control the terrorists. Assuming that 2500000 people have been killed, the price per head comes out to be $70,400 but the result is that double of these bersons have convered into terrorists. Hence we have produced 5000000 terrorists by spending $ 70,400 per head (Rs 5,843,200). A bad and endless solution
We must identify the root cause. To me, the cause all over the world is uneven distribution of wealth and inequality which is a fact. Had this amount expended on the welfare of the region, all these persons would have otherwise become slaves of USA or the donors.
This is my personal belief, other'e may and should have been having different viewpoint but this aspect is worth considering.
