    I’m a PTI supporter and we had been warning this forever. You cannot win this war! They ve been winning it slowly since this war began. Peace talks are the only way forward. It is beyond the capacity of army and police to win this war. We must negotiate and if in the short term we have to lose something to achieve peace in the long term peace will benefit us.

    @Imtiaz Khan:
    But our govt doesn’t care. They would sit until next installment of US money comes then they will a couple if missiles into Waziristan and then let kpk suffer the backlash. Its seems like we are not part of Pakistan any more

    @Imtiaz @Qasim:
    This is the failure of the PTI provincial govt. After singing friendly songs, blocking NATO routes, naming USA in FIRs, protesting against drones, the only province to be targeted is KPK which governed by PTI.
    I also voted for PTI. Rather my entire family, but with our fingers crossed.
    The fact is PTI cannot manage. They are confused. Imran Khan has not given any clear ideology.
    If negotiations were the way forward, these explosions should not be happening in KPK, but in Punjab and Sindh. Open up your eyes and try to differentiate between cautious and incompetent.

    mr Aamir do you think kpk police with its limited resources have the capacity to stop these blasts. the answer is no because KPK is connected with FATA and FATA is under federal government of PMLN. PMLN is not taking responsibility of FATA and situation in FATA is affecting kpk security situation and mr Aamir you posted comments like these every time and which shows you belong to MQM. in the end i would say PTI kpk govt is much better then other 3 provincial Govts. Here is the list of achievements by PTI KPK Govt

    Implementation of “Right to Information” bill in KPK.
    Promoting Industrialization.
    Energy Generation.
    Online FIR System.
    Women-centric Developments.
    Mobile Courts.
    Rehabilitation of Drug habits
    Law Enforcement Capability Enhancements.
    Upgradation of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa electricity distribution system.
    Working on Whistleblower law to be implemented in KPK.Recommend

    Most of the above comments are typical of the mentality of this nation. ” We will negotiate with thugs and beasts and we will torture the weak and dispossesed specially if they happen to be non-muslims and religious minorities” Sickening and shameful. Recommend

    @Imtiaz @Qasim
    So are you guys saying that just because the forces of evil are strong militarily, we should give up our own values – and the constitution of this country – so that we can have peace! Just imagine if that had been the approach of all our heroes over the centuries, what would have happened! The world would be truly in the clutches of the forces of darkness! And what guarantees of peace, even then? And finally, if we are to give over our land to these forces of evil, why not just give it to the Americans, or Chinese, or Indians – at least there would then be some semblance of law and order, rather than anarchy!Recommend

    Most of the commentators seem to suggest that our military/army is not capable of fighting a few thousands thugs. How about this idea, lets dismantle the whole useless army which eats up most of the national budget and use that money saved for the development of KPK, FATA. and rest of the country.
