'Islamic State' Established in North Waziristan.

 

An Islamic State has been set up by the Taliban in Waziristan. Criminal elements who previously held power in the region have been brutally eliminated, leaving the Taliban to "in effect rule in the rugged territory," Asia Times magazine reported.

From the Friday Times: "the growing influence of militants have forced tribesmen in the restive North and South Waziristan to migrate to adjacent districts of the North West Front(ier) Province."

Waziristan is a province of Pakistan that borders Afghanistan.

  Good Tactic  
 
Maybe we are missing the point. Lets give the Taliban a country and let them all migrate to the area just prior to testing the first nuclear cruise missle. Then we could use the glow in the dark sand as a new toy (corporations would love the new product and certify it is safe for use) Sounds like profit and win win to me.
