After giving a fair chance to the negotiated settlement, the armed forces have finally decided that enough is enough. To eliminate the Taliban menace, operation in the troubled belt has started full force. They road ahead is likely to be difficult in terms of civilian casualties, displacements, refugees etc. Unfortunately the terrorists only understand the language of guns. It is time for the nation to demonstrate solidarity with our security forces and contempt for armed bandits. Best way to show support as patriotic Pakistanis is to fly the national (not party) flags at our houses. Long live Pakistan and may the terrorists go to hell directly, Amen -Q.
