@Observer: Even US, with all her resources, couldn't do that. The geography of AF-PAK border is so challenging that let alone wiring, even proper patrolling is often a big challenge. @Hedgefunder: The problem is that governance structure in FATA was so weak that it couldn't sustain insurgency. Lashkars being used to fight TTP speaks volumes about absence and ineffectiveness of LEAs against TTP fountainhead. Unless we dont bring FATA under proper governance (consolidating the territories into a province or whatever alternatives) and then establish an effective Law Enforcement Infrastructure on expeditionary basis, the situation will remain as it is.

A simple hobby it has to become. Bomb blasts; now a routine.
