FINALLY, the Tehrik Taliban Pakistan has confirmed the death of their supreme commander Baituallah Mehsud, the man responsible for masterminding a series of deadly terrorist attacks in the country that killed hundreds of innocent Pakistanis. Their momentum at one time, when every other day they were beheading civilians, flogging women for stepping out of their homes, blowing up girls' schools in Swat and staging deadly bomb attacks, was going too fast for the security forces to stop. But the death of the man who was at the helm of the movement has made considerable difference and the saga of terror he had unleashed finally seems to be subsiding. The new commanders are Hakimullah Mehsud and Waliur Rehman, who are reportedly struggling to keep the movement from breaking apart. That both these leaders have vowed to continue the bomb attacks is no surprise. However, this is a godsent opportunity for the Army to benefit from the rifts and infighting that is going on in the outfit and to dismember the network once and for all.
