General Kayani's statement is very timely. Let Taliban clearly understand that the army of Pakistan is capable of crushing Taliban, no matter what. The US had created these people to fight their arch rivals, the Soviets. The Soviets are no more and so won't be the US before long. The giants die their own death and their own way. I don't blame Gen. Mullen for having misgivings about the Pakistani army. Why blame Gen. Mullen, the US generals usually have wrong estimations. That's what they did in Vietnam and many times thereafter. -AMJAD H. MIRZA, Lahore, via e-mail, April 25.
