    Taliban issues ultimatum to Pakistan leaders

    A Taliban spokesman issued a series of threats and ultimatums against Pakistani officials Wednesday as the country's military continued its offensive against the militant group in the Swat Valley.

    Speaking on the telephone with CNN, Muslim Khan announced that all national and provincial parliament members from the Malakand Division, the northwestern region where the Swat Valley is located, must resign within three days.

    "Otherwise, we will arrest all their families," Khan threatened, "and we will destroy all their buildings."

    The Taliban spokesman issued a separate directive aimed at prompting a public show of support for the militants from Pakistan's Islamist political parties. "All these parties must help the Taliban," Khan said. "They must give a press conference to show the people that we need sharia [Islamic law] in the Malakand Division."

    Well, I guess we will see how Pakistan deals with the Taliban. Iraq and Afghanistan didn't fare so well.

    how do you fight cowards who hide behind women & children, schools, hospitals, mosques? how do you fight cowards who dress as women, and then set off a suicide bomb when they can get close enough to you?

    beware of the advances of sharia law. there are large elements who want to impose this law in several European contries, as well as the U.S. Do your own research and see how this form of law treats women, as well as anyone who doesn't do what the law says.

    UPDATE:

    Taliban seek return to peace deal in Pakistan

    The Pakistani Taliban -- under pressure in fighting with the military -- said Tuesday it wants to return to a peace deal that recently collapsed.

    That collapse spark the ongoing massive military operation, a Taliban spokesman said Tuesday.

    Taliban militants in Swat Valley have announced that they are willing to disarm if the Pakistani government allows sharia, or Islamic law, to be implemented in the region, a spokesman for Taliban mediator Sufi Mohammed said.

    The government rejected the offer, saying the Taliban must pull out of Swat or face arrest, state information minister Syed Sumsam Ali Shah Bukhari said Tuesday. According to Bukhari, the offer shows that the Taliban's morale is down and they are retreating...

    ...The government has said it will only allow sharia if it does not contradict Pakistan's constitution. There are many interpretations of Islamic law, but the Taliban's version has curbed human rights, forcing women indoors, men to grow beards, and shops to stop selling movies and music.
    Apparently Pakistan is doing better than expected...the Taliban is already back stepping and Pakistan isn't giving in to their "demands."
