Pakistan can never use drones as CIA is conducting the whole operation under their supervision. If army was so eager to eliminate taliban in NW, the operation would have been conducted much earlier as the NW operation plan was prepared in 2009 but the payment was delayed by the US.Lot of civilian people will die in this operation but will be claimed as terrorists.Has anybody seen such a war in any country for so long? Why army kept failing since 9/11? Why our intelligence network collapsed in past years? It is because we are relying on US intelligence. They are fixing the targets for Pakistan army.
