WHAT CHOICE DOES HE HAVE?


Pakistan says top militants among 1,000 dead
(AFP, 9/26/08)

Pakistan has said that troops have killed 1,000 Islamist militants in a huge offensive, a day after President Asif Ali Zardari lashed out at the US over a clash on the Afghan border.

Five top Al-Qaeda and Taliban commanders were among the dead in a month-long operation in Bajaur district, currently the most troubled of Pakistan's unstable tribal areas close to the porous frontier, a top official said on Friday.


The clashes force Zardari to fight them.
