Pakistan to impose Islamic law in SWAT

Oh yeah we are very close to having the taliban staring into our eyes, and am very sure that some politicians will have a reception committee to recieve them at the border.

The Pakistan government agreed on Monday to impose Islamic law and suspend a military offensive across the northwest Pakistan. These concessions are believed to be aimed at pacifying a spreading Taliban insurgency in the area. The announcement came after talks with local Islamists, including one closely linked to the Taliban. The move will likely concern the United States, which has warned Pakistan that such peace agreements allow Al-Qaida and Taliban militants operating near the Afghan border time to rearm and regroup. Meanwhile, in rare press conference, General Pervez Musharraf hit out at “those who said there is a tacit understanding between the Pakistan army and the Taliban”. He also said that weakening the ISI and the army will weaken the war against the Taliban. Newspapers in Pakistan have commented the move to enforce Islamic Law in the areas under Taliban influence. In an article, The News has said, “The horrendous situation in a region where people have suffered tremendous brutality, where girls have been driven out of schools and where people have been beheaded in public for defying the militants is one that no elected government can stand by and calmly endure.” The Pakistan Observer has said, “It is regrettable that some people adopted violent means for realization of the highly noble objective of enforcing Islamic justice system. Anyhow, the new arrangement can lead to durable peace in the troubled region.”
