    Bombing and driving out the Taliban from Pakistan may seem to be the only viable solution left, and really who cares about the collateral damage that it leaves in it's wake? The fact of the matter is that the chaotic mess in Pakistan is reflective of the state of affairs of a nation that has failed to provide economic, social and human justice to its people. When the majority of the people of Pakistan are being pushed to the extremes of poverty; when access to basic essentials like clean drinking water, food, electricity, education, justice and security are denied to its very people, then unrest and radicalistion is bound to envelope, and destroy the very fabric of society. Ignoring the core issues and bombing away problems won't solve the problems, not here, not anywhere else, as America has already experienced in its past and recent history. Also, it's high time that the government and military set-up of Pakistan should end the game of Russain Roulette that its playing on it's own people, and address their genuine and immediate grievances instead.

    Pakistan's ambassador said that America and Pakistan will work together to take out the Taliban and al Qaeda in Pakistan. Why then don't we go into Pakistan with our Air Force and bomb these tribal areas in northwestern Pakistan where there are these Taliban and al Qaeda sympathizers? This most likely will kill bin Laden and many Taliban and al Qaeda.
