Pakistan Should Launch War to Get Rid of Taliban -- Not Halfway, but Once and for All

If the rulers cannot ensure the safety of the people, then better they resign and quit power. The present government's endeavors to build a bridge of understanding with the Taliban are a mere waste of time. The Taliban, who have scant regard for the sanctity of human lives, do not deserve -- nor should be shown -- any mercy. If the government is reluctant to unleash a ruthless crackdown on the Taliban, then let the army on its own volition take this most indispensable onslaught and finish the job of eliminating these latter-day assassins once and for all. Otherwise, Pakistan is doomed and will remain subservient to the killing sprees and criminal and bulging demands of these murderous thugs.
