Northwest Pakistan descends into chaos

All the Lefties cheered when Pakistan elected a new government that was not going to work with the US and was not going to 'support terrorism'. I wonder how they feel about the Taliban taking over villages and slaughtering people? Where are the Lefties marching and celebrating now that the predictions of the Right are coming true?

Go read the rest of the article to get a good feel for what is happening now that the 'moderates' have taken control in Pakistan. Killings, torture, rape and pillage, sounds like Peace to me.

Northwest Pakistan descends into chaos - The Long War Journal: "The Pakistani Taliban continue military operations in the tribal agencies and the settled regions of the Northwest Frontier Province despite ongoing negotiations to sign a peace agreement with the government. Forces loyal to Baitullah Mehsud overran a town previously run by pro-government tribal forces, and beheaded 22 Pakistanis. In Peshawar, the provincial capital, police and government officials have said the Taliban is close to taking control of the city.

Baitullah Mehsud strikes in South Waziristan

As the Pakistani government continues negotiations with Baitullah Mehsud, the South Waziristan warlord and leader of the Pakistani Taliban launched an attack on rival tribal leaders in the town of Jandola. On Sunday, forces loyal to Baitullah took over the town during heavy fighting after attacking the home of the leader of a local peace committee in the region. The fighting resulted in seven members of the pro-government Bhittani tribe and two Taliban fighters killed.

The Taliban then kidnapped 30 members of the Bhittani tribe. Twenty-two were executed in a brutal fashion. "Some of the dead were shot and some had their throats slit," a district official told AFP. "The men's hands were tied behind their backs and the corpses left in a drain by a roadside," AFP reported. The tribesmen have also been described as "pro-Karzai," referring to Afghanistan's president."
