@ Pakistaniloyalist Probably you have not read history regarding creation of Taliban.... The Taliban were created by Pakistan's premier intelligence agency in 1994 with the blessing of the then Prime Minister. Do you know who was the Prime Minister of Pakistan then? Who was her Interior Minister, who used to call Taliban as "our boys"? Please come out of the US Syndrome. These are infact all the internal problems of Pakistan. Reality is bitter? Another bitter reality is that PTI has become the Political Wing of TTP. USA never asked for that!
