I thought I didn't hear this one right yesterday until the second time it came up on the TV. Those Islamist Militants are sure ballsy. I think this might be enough to knock the defacto truce these militants have had with the Pakistani government (and especially the Army which is highly involved in politics) out of whack. For awhile they have both been fighting with rather limited objectives, enough so that it was just maintaining the status quo. I could be mistaken but that might be over for awhile.
A big part of our problems in Afghanistan are the Islamist Militants having a safe haven in the Northwest Frontier of Pakistan which is tacitly supported by the Pakistani government. Yeah we shoot a missile from a predator here and send in an ODA there but those are just not enough to deny them that territory. Our sort of cooperative ally Pakistan might become a bit more cooperative.
