SO EASY EVEN PAKISTAN CAN DO IT:

Pakistan Seizes Insurgent Stronghold on Afghan Border (ZAHID HUSSAIN, 3/02/10, WSJ)

Pakistani forces have seized a key al Qaeda and Taliban stronghold along the border with Afghanistan that once served as a hideout for Ayman al Zawahiri, second-in-command to Osama bin Laden.

The capture of Damadola, a district in the Bajaur tribal region, is a major success in Pakistan's counterinsurgency campaign. The area had long been dominated by insurgents operating on both sides of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.


Instability is our friend.
