If the Taliban can come up with a situation whereby they can do this- disperse
over the border into Pakistan- that could change pretty much everything. Will
Dubya pull a Tricky Dick and carpet bomb that region of Pakistan to get at the
Taliban? Would that not truly create a regional conflict?
What's more, won't that finally make irrelevant the comrades who are unable to
decide where they stand?
