The global jihad on the move. The march on free peoples continues with emboldened vigor.
Is this the moderate Taliban that our Muhammadan president wants to negotiate with? Obama's aid to Pakistan is misguided. The Taliban is moving closer to Islamabad .............. very bad.
Meanwhile, in response to Obama's pledge to talk to Taliban "moderates", the Taliban responded to Obama: "There Are No Moderates or Extremists Among Us".
The Pakistani government and the Taliban fighters observed
a ceasefire earlier this year but the terrorist group continued to refuse to lay
down their arms and eventually attacked districts adjacent to the Swat Valley,
according to US military officials.
The uprising the Taliban led to the United States urging a Pakistani military operation against the terrorist group and the Muslim nation's security forces attacked Taliban fighters to remove them from two districts near Swat Valley.
The terrorist group then abducted two government officials, who were beheaded Saturday night in Khuwaza Kheil, a town just 10 miles away from the SWAT Valley village of Mingora. Their headless bodies were discovered on a nearby road by members of the Pakistani security forces.
One of the Taliban leaders claimed that the beheadings were revenge for the killing of two low-level Taliban commanders earlier on Saturday.
The recent push by Taliban forces to take more ground in Pakistan has served as a wake-up call for the government there, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said.
"We and others have been talking with them about how what is happening there in the western frontier area is truly an existential threat to democratic government in Pakistan," Gates said. "And I think the movement of the Taliban into Buner really got their attention."
Last month, the Taliban seized control of Buner, in the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan, causing alarm as it moved within only about 60 miles of the capital city of Islamabad.
It is feared that Al-Qaeda could also use the border areas of Pakistan to launch attacks against coalition forces in Afghanistan.
Pakistan has long focused on India to its east as its main threat, Gates said, with little regard for the largely ungoverned western front.
"I think that ... they've always felt that if it really got serious, it was a problem they could take care of," Gates said. "That's why I think the movement of the Taliban so close to Islamabad was a real wake-up call for them."
