//Infiltration easy. Psychological impact large. Reminds me of Vietcong infiltration. It is very difficult to stop. Pakistan has a real long-term problem, and the US is asking it to fight the long war. The US is asking Pakistan to fight the war that itself and the Soviet Union could not win.//

Pakistan has faced growing US pressure to launch a major ground offensive in the nearby tribal region of North Waziristan, considered a haven for Islamist insurgents.
Islamabad has denied accusations that it is not doing enough to fight the Taliban in the north-west, pointing out that more than 2,400 of its soldiers have died fighting militants since 2002.
Pakistan supported the Taliban regime in Afghanistan from 1996-2001, but later became an ally of the US when it led an invasion in 2001.
