Pakistan Backs War Against NATO

On January 1st, the Pakistani Taliban agreed to halt all terror attacks inside Pakistan. In return, the Pakistani military will not interfere with Taliban movements, as long as these movements are part of supporting Taliban attacks against NATO forces in Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban will deploy their forces into Afghanistan under the leadership of Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar. This deal is supposed to include the autonomous Haqqani Network, which often links up with the Taliban, but considers itself a separate operation.

The Pakistani Taliban also promised to force smaller terror groups to cease attacks inside Pakistan. This is supposed to include kidnapping, theft and sundry crimes committed in the name of God. Some Islamic terror activity is actually gangsters committing crimes under the guise of Islamic radicalism. Some of this stuff will continue, but the Pakistanis expect the suicide bombings, assassinations and attacks on troops and police to cease.

That's a nice gesture from our ``ally``... and a big set up for war...

Remember, the supply route to Afghanistan is still closed.
NATO supplies pile up at Pakistan port

Tonnes of supplies bound for NATO forces in Afghanistan are piling up at the Pakistani port of Karachi following the blockade imposed after a deadly air strike in November, officials said Monday.

Thousands of trucks and military vehicles are stuck at the port, as relations between Washington and Islamabad flounder following the border incident that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.


This ain't gonna end well.

It was always going to turn ugly and what is everybody expecting? A muslim nation to turn against there own people? Pakistan have been on the fence for a long time. India have good ties with the west and I think it should be expected that Pakistan would turn to the East, especially after the soldier killings.

As for Pakistan backing terrorists, maybe they have just realised that the terrorists are handy people to have in their corner with US relations in turmoil.

Can you blame them when the US keeps 'accidentally' killing their people?

In any case, I suspect Pakistan have always been helping the Taliban.

They indeed have been... since the 70s along with the CIA.

This is not surprising in the least. Pakistan have to assist the Taliban as it agrees with their long game. A friendly buffer against Pakistan's real enemy, India.

This could cause major issues as they are the fastest expanding nuclear arsenal nation. Not an easy target. Considering that the US is in talks with taliban about power share in Afghanistan at handover shows how much power both taliban factions have. ISI have close links with both factions and could actually be the controlling power in region. With nukes scary.
