    But now the Taliban are going to have the upper hand again, those drone strikes were taking our their upper and middle level leaders in Pakistan. Guess its time to pack it up in Afghanistan as well.

    thats what I said in the link. *shrugs*

    The pakis only 'serious' attempt to help was when the went partway into Waziristan in oct. 2009, it was, they had a few fire fights....eventually left.

    Musharraf how was only slightly more aggressive than the bunch now was still head and shoulders more aggressive overall.


    With this sanctuary now pretty much a no go, no fire zone , its over. period.

    Of all this information, the most troubling concerns the duplicitous double dealing by Pakistan's powerful spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence, or ISI. While some of the intelligence seems wildly implausible (surely the ISI did not plot to poison Kabul-bound beer, an enormously complex operation with limited pay off since US troops are not allowed to drink alcohol in Afghanistan), the WikiLeaks documents show a continued relationship between the ISI and the Taliban. This is not surprising. In the 1990s, the ISI helped create the Taliban and Pakistani support was decisive to the Taliban's capture of Kabul in 1996. WikiLeaks and the ISI-Taliban nexus | Peter Galbraith | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk


    The ISI had been burned by the Bangladesh, who broke away due to ethnic diversity, and the Pakistanis remembered this., and would only support the Afghans against the Russians if they were fundementalists.

    When push comes to shove, the ISI will repel the Taliban...remember the Red Mosque?

    The real threat for the Pakistanis is, and always will be, India.

    ISI plays a double game, they been doing it for a while now. They take US money, smile in our faces, and than aid and abit the Taliban at the same time. With them dismissing our CIA officers, I see no real reason for them to continue giving them aid moneys.

    They understand power. According to Musharraf, the day after 9/11 he was given an ultimatium re: allow fly over, aid us vs. taliban, and in Afghanistan or be bombed 'back to the stone age (with Alley Oop).'http://www.defence.pk/forums/strategic-geopolitical-issues/2277-us-threatened-bomb-pakistan-back-stone-age-after-9-11-musharraf.html
