If Pakistan is fighting terrorism why haven't they already felt reprisals from the Taliban?

A militant Taliban group warned Thursday of reprisals in Pakistan if there was another US drone attack, as the government condemned the latest missile strike in its territory.

If the Pakis are fighting terrorism wouldnt they already be getting reprisals. Its clear to me the corrupt government of Pakistan just uses the war on terror as a guise to supress political dissent and they just take bribes from the Taliban.

    Pakistan is playing both sides of the fence. You clearly have no knowledge of recent events in Pakistan though. There have been bombings, A Hilton hotel for one.

    It's difficult to fight terrorism when elements of your intelligence agency are funding and supporting it. The 9/11 Commission didn't tell us this, but both Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and alleged 9/11 paymaster Omar Sayed Shaikh (the men alleged to have killed Daniel Pearl as well) are both known associates of Pakistani intelligence. In fact, Omar Sayed Shaikh is known to have wired $100,000 to Mohammed Atta on the direct orders of ISI chief General Mahmoud Ahmed. Where was Ahmed on 9/11? Why he was in Washington DC during the entire week, meeting with top US officials about a new strategic partnership with the US, the partnership presumably made necessary by the attacks.

  • How can you expect them to fight against their relatives and close friends? Pakistan is on the side of the Taliban big time.
