Thanks for reply.
How you can say there is no internal Fault line that was used to wage this kind of insurgency? There was a fault Line. Justice system in Malakand Division has a very disturbing history. Till 1970s Pakistani system (Civil courts etc) were not there but Qazi system was there since centuries and PEOPLE of Malakand had no problem with that system. When judicial system of Pakistan (with which I also have many issues) was introduced there people rejected it because only thing it was not providing was JUSTICE but DELAYS. Then instead of correcting it or making courts responsible for making quick decisions FCR of FATA were extended to this area. People rejected it again. In 90s two Pakistani DEMOCRATICALLY elected governments introduced Nizam-e-Adal Regulations (In 1996 & 1999) but those were not implemented despite the promises. By 1999, people were literally out of control and began to got violent.Taliban were not there till this time but nevertheless a social and political active Fault Line in society was created. What we are seeing currently now is extension of this fault line which is jolted whole Pakistan.
Well military operations are always an integral part of any counterinsurgency operation but if too much force will be used and too frequent force will be used insurgents will get used to it and they and their sponsors (US + India) will tell them how to adapt new tactics in response to military operations. Military must only be used when and where local people start realizing that insurgents are using their popular demand to fulfill some other agenda. NAR-2009 was a well calculated move by Government and Army and it also started to show its impact but delay in implementation has once again provide an opportunity to the insurgents (Talibans) to fool locals to get support.
Military operation was due in Swat and Bunner and I support current operation and hope Pakistani Army will show its real wrath to enemies of Pakistan. But I only has issue with the timing of initialization of this operation. Mr. Hallboruk was here along with Mullan when operation was launched. This again provide an excuse to the political parties in opposition and many other peoples to say that this operation was launched on US pressure.
I think intelligence is weakest area so far in all this counterinsurgency operation in Pakistan. Till now it would be great if Pakistan had captured or killed some real high value target like Muslim Khan or Fazalullah. This could had provide a much boost to forces and this could also prove a lethal moral blow to Taliban terrorists.
I am sick of this ISPR guys now. I really have no idea what the hell they are doing? There must be some documentaries or at least some sort of web site to tell the nation about what is ACTUALLY happening on ground there in Swat and Bunner. Pakistan Army killed 21 suicide bombers during these operations but did out media pay any regards to military. NO; and they will never because army is not gonna pay them. Question is what those people are doing to whom army is paying every month (ISPR). A strong media management is more than CRITICAL in order to get support for forces from nation and tell the masses with whom Army is fighting.
