Anyway, the Taliban have shown their appreciation by refusing to lay down their arms, which was supposed to be their side of the bargain. So here we have it...the Taliban gets to welsh on their deal and the Pakistani government is left with their country backsliding into the grip of homicidal maniacs. The Taliban also had a "thank you" gift to offer...
A suicide car bomber has attacked a security post in north-western Pakistan, killing at least 18 people, nine of them police, police say.
The bomber set off his explosives as he pulled up at a checkpoint in Charsadda, a town near the city of Peshawar.
There has so far been no claim of responsibility for the attack.
But correspondents say Pakistani Taleban militants, allied to al-Qaeda, have carried out numerous such attacks over the past two years.
Sick stuff. I hope that President Obama can show the same determination he showed when confronting the Somali pirates.
