Pakistan Awakening Also Taking Hold In Kurram Agency Of FATA


In my previous posts this morning I noted how local Pakistan Tribes had taken up arms and started hunting down Taliban and their al-Qaeda cousins in their districts of Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province (NWFP). It appears now that the local tribes in the Kurram Agency of the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) are welcoming the arrival of the Pakistan Military to purge their Agency of the Islamo Fascists:

The elders of Tori, Mengal and Bangash tribes have announced their full support to the government in getting rid of the extremists, which have ruined peace of the agency.

The local people of the agency have highly welcomed decision of advisor to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik about taking actions against the extremists in Kurram agency.

Interior PM Malik gave warning a day ago that the Pak Army would intervene in 72 hours if hostilities did not end. Pro-government tribes have been fighting the extreme Taliban groups in Kurram for weeks now. But with the welcoming of the Pak Army it may be that Kurram Agency is well on the way to its own Awakening, wherein it allies with the government forces to hunt down and destroy the Taliban and al-Qaeda forces in their region.
