After spending years pretending their main problem were Indian soldiers on their eastern border, the Pakistan army has finally realized the problem is not east, it is within their own ranks. Finally, the Pakistan army launched a major offense in the Swat Valley. Now, the fun begins when the Taliban claim they killed dozens while the Pakistan army claims it inflicted “heavy casualties.” Pakistan military sources claim their forces killed 60 Taliban militants while the Taliban insists it only lost a few men while inflicting heavy casualties on the Pakistan army.
It is unfortunate, there is no impartial referee who can actually keep an honest box score on who inflicts more or less casualties. We can be certain, both sides will claim “victory” despite how many they lose.
