The cease-fire has come under significant criticism as it is seen as a sign that Pakistan is capitulating to the Taliban. Even government officials admit that the Taliban are using the truce to rearm. Sharia law is to be imposed again in the region.

Hmmm...so that's why Bu$h paid Pervez Musharraf $55 million to do .....
and all this time I thought Mu$harraf was supposed to be hunting bin Laden and the Taliban instead of handing over the SWAT Valley to them.

I wonder how the women of the Swat Valley feel about the return of Sharia Law? But, then, the Taliban wouldn't consider the opinion of a mere woman to be of any consequence whatsoever, would they?

I recently watched a program on the Swat region under the Taliban, terrifying, women confined to their homes, any dissenters are de-capitated and their bodies displayed..and their stronghold on Pakistan is increasing everyday..!!
