The truce between Pakistan and the Taliban has been broken and fighting has ensued. What does this mean for us here in the United States? Are we going to see a new war in Pakistan? I think this has been building up for a while, and we are likely to see troops sent there.

This has been building for months due to an apathetic Pakistani Government. This isn't any conspiracy just bad policy and hoping for the best.

Here's another source.

They're hoping to make their organization appear more powerful than it is and to scare people into either joining them or allowing them to further their agenda.
