THINK TANK: SENIOR
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?
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?
@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.
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.
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.
