It’s a new day, a new beginning but the news from FATA isn’t good at all. Yesterday USA’s UAV hit a small town in Bajaur with hellfire missile. The target was a house of a local tribesman. His house has been destroyed but luckily there was no major loss of life.
In response Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has vowed to carry out suicide attacks in the major cities of the country. TTP isn’t happy with the government at all as they blame them for still supporting US.
The pattern is very clear. America’s UAVs attack our tribal areas mostly Bajaur. Such attacks are enough to provoke TTP. They in retaliation carry out attacks in the other cities of the country. It’s a very simple formula of creating chaos and lawlessness. The targets are usually defined, such as police, military and other law enforcing personnel and facilities.
The interesting thing is that TTP didn’t accept the responsibility of recent Islamabad and Karachi bombings.
