    Let’s negotiate with Taliban immediately and hand over the gas pipelines to them so they won’t attack them anymore. While we are at it lets hand over everything to them.

    Even after countless evidences and opinion of TTP anti state and barbaric activities, but still we lack the will to tackle and punish them. Still there are people who have soft corner for them, still there are people who want to ‘negotiate’ with them!
