    Posted: 27 April 2009 at 12:46pm
The Taliban - what the West wishfully calls the Pakistani insurgency - is rapidly turning in to a mass uprising. Western media simply lumps all the insurgents together and for the sake of convenience calls them the 'Taliban'.The insurgency in Pakistan isn't controlled by any central leadership. The leadership of the erstwhile Taliban that once governed Afghanistan has long been incapacitated. However, the insurgency in Pakistan rages on, beyond control of any single entity, spontaneously and has clearly become self-sustaining now.
The insurrection was long overdue. It's an expression of general disgust towards the Pakistani ruling elites who not only kept the country backward and impoverished to maintain their authority but also stood by, doing nothing, as the filthy infidels raped the country with impunity. Insurgency should be seen as an imminent revolution which can, at most, be delayed but can't be stopped.

Interesting information.  Is this common knowledge on the streets of Pakistan?  Or, how did you arrive at this conclusion?  Pakistani media? If no central leadership, where do you supposes weapons are coming from?  Hopefully for sake of civilians, the "insurgents" will organize into a proper political party and seek change through peaceful methods.

It's common sense. If there was at all any central leadership it would have long been obliterated. Unless the insurgents have popular support, it isn't possible for them to make rapid advances they are making or, even, survive under such powerful opposition from the elites and infidels.

Why is central leadership necessary to acquire weapons?

Hopefully for sake of civilians, the "insurgents" will organize into a proper political party and seek change through peaceful methods.

A system based on oppression and injustice cannot face the onslaught of the enlightened masses. It is impossible to change the system to make it work. The system is destined to be destroyed, however painful it might be. Quicker it happens, the better.

Taliban are the Bread n Butter of Pakistan Government. Why must they eradicate them? The day they do that billion of dollars stop coming in.

So, in Swat Valley, with whom did the Pakistani government deal with?  Better for enlightened masses to have patience than anarchy, which is what, I assume, destroying a system entails (unnecessary bloodshed).

I meant replacement of the system with more egalitarian system. This is not possible unless the present system is fully discarded. I meant a revolution. Of course, the newer system will have its own flaws but, at least, it's support base will be wider.

"This story from the news is true that Taliban have used class divide to gain popularity in rural areas. They have forced landlords(Khans of Swat) to flee and handed over their property to poor farmers and villagers. This way they have ensured loyalty of majority of population. However, this practice in itself is unislamic and is more of communist/imperialist practice. Islam in fact supports class divides while stressing justice and equal rights for every body. But according to Islam you have to accept your circumstances and struggle for the survival. However, there is supposed to be a support system for those who can not support themselves and their families. Having said this, you can not just grab/steal other peoples money/property using class divide as an excuse because such an excuse is totally unislamic."
