Now that the Army and Air Force seems all set to pound in the ground Baitullah Mehsud and his band of barbarians, it should be made sure that the operation must be so comprehensive and decisive to eliminate the terrorist network completely. This is the war of the survival of our nation. We have to win this war at any cost, whatever the suffering we have to bear. We can not give in to the Taliban savages who are eager to destroy all our institutions to send us back to the Stone Age. These thugs deserve no mercy. -MAHR AHMED ZAIB, Sargodha, via e-mail, June 22.
