Subject: Pakistan Tribal regions uncontrolled...
reefdiver    1/5/2007 2:28:16 PM
I've been trying with no success to find the SYSOP post or article on other sites where it was recently stated the US and Afghanistan are considering declaring the Pakistan Tribal regions where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are hiding an "uncontrolled region". This is in light of the failure of Pakistan agreements with tribes to control incursions into Afghanistan. The "uncontrolled region" declaration would basically imply that Pakistan has no sovereignty over the region and, given attacks are coming from that region, provide the US and the Afghan a pretense to essentially invade the area. Such as decision would of course have significant ramifications. Any thoughts on such?
