    Counter-insurgency (COIN) operations require a large ground-holding presence to inhabit the vacuum that is created as a result of the surgical assault (carried out mostly by specialized elite operators backed up by gunships, artillery, jets and tanks. So, don’t worry, the Army has learnt a lot from low intensity conflict recently, including entirely new doctrines, training protocols, etc. The ISI did a spectacular job isolating the foreign-funded and hardcore amongst the others, and their days are certainly numbered. You are right to point out that the US has failed to provide security or stability to both Iraq and Afghanistan — military operations alone cannot guarantee any kind of peace, but a multi-pronged approach including holding the territory and ensuring infrastructure development and a swift and effective civil administration are the real keys. It is my understanding that the Army leadership understands this approach very well now. The Chief himself was instrumental in writing our COIN doctrine =)

Most of the terrorists knew about this operation have already moved to safer areas in Afghanistan and army is unlikely to face much opposition as the same happened last time. This operation is going to be over within a couple of days with military declaring victory and Pakistani overjoyed. But if army after completing operation moves back, the militants whose infrastructure is still intact shall come back with a vengeance and start their violent activities all over again as happened in SW last time. I am not being pessimistic but your military cannot be trusted which the upright media like yours must be vigilant to highlight the same which I HIGHLIGHTED SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST WHICH WAS PUBLISHED BY ET but not now as you have faced violent attacks by ISI and militants as well.

Pakistan will deal with it’s problems and India should stop the terror in Kashmir. Just ask the people of Kashmir who is responsible for more than 100,000 Kashmiris killed and thousands of the women raped in the last 10 years, allow the world press there and it will tell the true story to the world.

Pakistan and Pakistanis deserve better – the situation of Iraq and Syria could spread to its territory – it is time all those groups including in Punjab that back sectarianism and terrorism be given well deserved justice – the justice they impose on innocent peoples because of creed or belonging to the armed forces, police or rangers.
    Negotiating with extremists sent the wrong message – TTP believed they were at an advantage, and our armed forces could not take them on. They shall soon learn a well deserved lesson. The aptly named operation – Zarb e Azb – is complex given the porous border with Afghanistan where civilians as terrorists will flee. If only Afghanistan would collaborate from its side of the border. If memory does not fail me, the mullah who gave orders to kill Malala, escaped to remote eastern Afghanistan. Time for the region to have a multilateral security agreement in place which would cover such issues.
    I Wish the armed forces all the success of the world and may its soldiers go into N Waziristan with their heads high – they are fighting for the country’s values and existentialism.

    @The Failed Rebel

    I am SO glad people like you exist on these forums. Progressive yet acutely aware of anti-Pakistan intel ops. You seem to understand our present predicament. Would love to ta;k more. BTW some people deeply involved with the planning of these ops assured me just an hour ago that this was in the works for months and has nothing to do with foreign pressure. In fact, we are specifically going after anti-State elements, even if it means crossing the border and finishing the job. I can understand your hesitation with regards to military ops especially given American misadventures in Iraq and Afghanistan. I think everyone should read about Operation Anaconda — the US offensive to retake the Shah-i-Kot valley that was met with super stiff resistance even though Tier 1 operators (SEAL Team 6, Delta, ISA, etc.) were a part of it to better appreciate what our boys are up against in the treacherous terrain with a hardened enemy.

    Whether I endorse this operation or not really doesn’t matter. What matters, and what I believe is more important to contemplate is that this operation would have far stretched repercussions. Firstly it would signify whether our Army is really capable of combating this war, given its historical alliances with some of the “elements” and its perceived “dubious nature”. Do they really justify taking a massive percentage off the annual budget when more than 50% people are living in abject poverty?

    Secondly, since this operation was initiated on Prime Minister’s directives, it will be a huge test for him and his cabinet too. Next few days would demonstrate if the incumbent govt is really competent enough to fight this “war on terror” or not. Have they discussed or taken any steps in order to safeguard the innocent citizens who could potentially become target of the fall out of this encounter. And this vision goes for all four provinces not just Punjab as we have witnessed. Or will it be the provincial govt’s responsibility to look after their inhabitants? Getting rid of physical enemy is not important it’s the mindset they have to get rid off too.

    After years of unprovoked attacks and over 50,000 civilians and military men killed, the Pakistani nation had enough of this menace of terrorism that has plagued the nation for long. We have seen them reject terrorism in various recent polls. State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said, “This is a Government of Pakistan operation. We’ve long supported Pakistan efforts to extend their sovereignty and stability throughout the country.” We wish the Pakistani nation well and complete success in their quest for peace.

    I pray the operation to be successful, but one must know that this operation will cut the branch of the tree but the roots, foreign intellegence agencies,will remain there who will make the tree grow again which will be wilder and more barbaric.To finish the problem one must wipe off the roots . I dont say that go on war with them but one must think that why despite all there differences these same agencies do not destabilize Iran, the reason is that the life and death of the ruling class is with their people and all their material interest unlike pakistan are within their country I dont point finger on any particular person or institution ,its the story of all. therefore if one needs a permenant solution of this problem there is no rocket science what should be done otherwise there would be inevitable insurgency after few months. may ALLAH protect Pakistan

    @US CENTCOM:
    Your comment is spot on. US several times in the past offered its assistance for a coordinated operation from both sides of the border in NW but the same did not find favour of the Pak military. Had the said offer been accepted by Pakistan, terrorist organisations operating in both Pakistan and Afghanistan might have been defeated by now but unfortunately that did not happen to the bad luck for all countries in this region including US. Notwithstanding above, Pakistan has ultimately taken the right decision but the million dollar question still remains whether it will take on all terror organisations or do it selectively but if news reports are to be believed, all will be taken to task. US SUPPORT shall still be required along with Afghan forces which would be crucial as terrorists will escape from the porous border and find safe havens in Afghanistan. It is believed that TTP chief is still hiding in Afghanistan who can be eliminated by the effective and precision drones along with his clan both in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Airport in Karachi was attacked. People in Karachi suffered, the terrorists disappeared and died in Karachi with other team members still in hiding in Karachi, unless they had superhuman powers of a super man they couldn’t have left the city and reached their primary bases in NW within a day. Then Why is operation taking place in NW? why not in Karachi, where these terrorists actually are!!??

    Just because someone accepted the responsibility on behalf of Taliban? and we believed it?and since we already know that NW is where they come from so we decide to carpet bomb it?

    I mean, don’t you guys see the disconnect here? – 10 villages, a few of my friends who have relatives in the affected areas have been completely raised to earth so far, and it continues.

As I am working here as a social worker and can feel there pain easily. We’ve a lot of problems to set our sisters and children as they’re in a huge psychological pressure. The rashin is not in sufficient quantity nor enough more than a week for an average type of families. Worthless medical assistance. And Ugly places to live.
    A lot of issues and damn low efforts by the both govt & nation.

    According to various polls the Pakistani Nation has rejected terrorism in all its forms. We also know that the terrorists are on the run. The ongoing operations in Northern Pakistan have definitely decreased the degree of violence against civilians, yet we still see IED attacks like the one that happened yesterday on a school van, killing two students and three teachers. The complete elimination can only be achieved with continued attacks on enemy positions like the one today.

    Former CIA director Michael Hayden has hailed Pakistan’s ongoing operation, Zarb-i-Azb, and voiced confidence that the country would ride out multiple problems. Hayden also said the United States should help Pakistan in bringing development to terrorism-afflicted areas. “When I was in government, we tried to build economic opportunity zones in the tribal region with the Pakistani government, those are the kinds of things, and we need to do. We need to change conditions on the ground to give the people in the tribal region economic opportunity,” he told APP, after a discussion organized at the annual convention of the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Descent in North America.
