Pakistani Air Strike

According to recent reports, US aircraft attacked a Pakistani village near the Afghan border which destroyed some houses and killed 18 civilians. The attack was planned to target Aiman Al Zawahiri, the deputy of Osama Bin Laden, but he escaped the attack and some civilians were killed. This attack sparked some protests against the United States in different parts of Pakistan. The government of Pakistan also condemned the attack that caused some civilian casualties. In my opinion if the Pakistan government honestly took action against the terrorists then there would be no need for the US air strikes. Tribal agencies of Pakistan, especially the border areas, have been the main areas of the Taliban and Al Qaeda's activities, and many fighters cross the boder from those areas.

We feel sorry for the civilians lost and we hope tribal people help their government and identify those whom shelter the terrorists. If the government of Pakistan is against the US air strikes on Pakistani soil, then the Pakistan government must take serious action against the terrorists in those remote lands so there will not be a need for the US to conduct military operations in Pakistan. We know that Pakistan is a close ally of United States in the war against terrorism, but Pakistan should prove it by actions, not words. The Pakistani authorities do not have any control over the border areas so the terrorists take advantage of this and continue their plans and activities.

So we hope the Pakistan government puts more troops along the border and the Pakistani soldiers should conduct patrols in those remote areas and search suspicious houses. If they continue this operation for a few months I am sure the terrorist shelters will be appear soon and they will be captured, and a permanant peace and stabilty will come in the region which will be for the benefit of Afghanistan, Pakistan and the whole world.
