Taliban threatens Pakistan
A top Taliban leader has threatened to begin operations attacking Pakistan. An ultimatum has been made that an offensive will open up from the strongholds in the Pashtun heartlands that will stretch throughout the country. The Taliban leader bragged that the Taliban network now reaches as far as the capital Islamabad.
They are angered that the agreement made in the armistice with local tribes, which they claim included them last year, has been broken by the Pakistan military operations in the frontier regions and retribution will not stop there. He boasted that the offensive would begin with Al Qaeda-style suicide bombings in the capital and spreading nationwide to a more general offensive against the Musharraf regime.
