Pakistan army doesn't have the capability to defeat Taliban. Taliban is using guerrilla warfare tactic which Pakistan army can't handle.Well it is impossible to defeat an enemy that is the friend of your superiors and therefore the talibans will always have the upper hand with the Pakistani army because they are friends of the government.
It seems it is a fight that can not be won, perhaps compatible to the American Vietnam war.Pakistan has been at war with ''Taliban Pakistan'' for many years now but isn't able to put an end to this group. in your own opinion why could have gone wrong? what could Pakistan do to end Taliban?
Oh, pardon me if you are offended. That issue about being used by the government is not my opinion. I clearly said that I had read it in the newspaper. And the reason I posted it is to give those concerned like you to air the truth on the matter. Now, if you are offended, I apologize and let me say that I don't have the intention to malign any rebel group. That is also the reason why I initially said that I'm not into it, meaning I have not much knowledge on the matter and I am posting for that knowledge.@Corzhens , Sir your last comment is seriously offensive and the fact that you have next to no information on my country makes it even worse. You think Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan is being used by govt to increase army's budget? Do you know that the same group attacked a cantonment area school on 16th Dec 2014 and killed 150 kids and most of those were kids of army soldiers. I have a friend who is a major in Pak Army and they have caught Terrorists during their operation in KPK province who are not circumcised. These Taliban leaders are being trained, funded and planted by our enemies. And you should always research facts before going on a blaming spree.
Yemen terrain is far harder than that of Pakistan and so far the collation was able to have full control over 80% of Yemen and Taliban are not like the Houthis and former Saleh who have advanced weaponry including airforce, ballistic missiles that the collation destroyed at the beginning of the operation. Pakistan failed to beat the Taliban that is the bottom line.The geo-terrain is what makes it hard for Pakistan to win the battle. Its hard not only for Pakistan but any regular army to counter insurgency adopting guerrilla warfare tactic and strategy.
I was talking to a Pakistani guy yesterday and he told that Pakistan military doesn't want to confront Taliban rather use them against India. I was shocked when he told me that because we hear a lot about Taliban operation against the Army and inside Pakistan. Corruption as its finest.Yemen terrain is far harder than that of Pakistan and so far the collation was able to have full control over 80% of Yemen and Taliban are not like the Houthis and former Saleh who have advanced weaponry including airforce, ballistic missiles that the collation destroyed at the beginning of the operation. Pakistan failed to beat the Taliban that is the bottom line.
