… I noticed in the statement that after condemning US imperialism the statement makes this comments
However, the actions, program and the vision of the Taliban cannot be supported by anyone. They, and all other fundamentalist/terrorist groups, must be fought against relentlessly by all means – military, political and economic – and rooted out.
Although this formulation comes after a broad condemnation of US imperialism, without insistence on Pakistani sovereignty I am not entirely clear what forces it is saying should do the “rooting out,” and why it is necessary to specify a military solution which could indicate full support of the current actions of the National Security Council against “Talibanization” in Waziristan?
I welcome your thoughts here comrade, I really don’t know the situation well.
