YOU'RE AGAINST THE TRIBAL AREAS OR WITH THEM:

Pakistan Moves Forces from Tribal Areas to Indian Border (Bill Roggio, December 26, 2008, Weekly Standard Blog)

South Asia is on edge today as reports indicate a Pakistani division is being redeployed from the tribal areas and the Northwest Frontier Province to the border region near Lahore. The unit that is being moved is assigned to blunt an Indian armored strike into Pakistan. The division was previously assigned to fighting against the Taliban in the Bajaur region, where a halting offensive has been underway since the summer.

Aside from the risk of an all-out war between Pakistan and India, two regional nuclear powers, the move may further destabilize the lawless Pakistani northwest.


Destabilization is good, but it's useful to have the Pakistani military doing it for us.
