An iron fest is needed to deal with Taliban.
On the surface of it, this looks like the way to go. But, in the long run, this road leads to nowhere. Violence only begets more violence. The Taliban gets its support from the people in its area of influence. What is needed is to educate the people in that area. Teach them the truth about Islam. Teach them that Islam means to have an open mind. Teach them that Islam means to be able to think for themselves. An unthinking person is not a Muslim.
