Taliban do need to be destroyed, but I would rather that the Pakistani military do it than US drone attacks. As I have said before the Lankans did it, so we can as well. The only concern is whether our military has the heart.
Imran wants to get the tribals on our side to fight against the taliban, but that's difficult when they are being droned.
And the Talibs will continue to kill and commit atrocities despite what the US does or did (I agree with you on this Fusion), but there does seem to be a cause-effect relationship between drone attacks and Taliban recruiting more and more angry/marginalised Pakistanis. More terrorists are being created.
I'm sure you must remember Pakistan in the 90's, and I certainly do. We never had this bull****, where people were killing each other without any reason or markets exploding or other crap. The Pakistan I remember before 9/11 was a much safer place and better off. We had tourists in places like Naran, Kagan, Murree, etc.
