(LMAO) Don't worry, none of those rifles will wind up in the hands of the
Taliban to be used against the US or the Pakistani gov't.
The US "success" in Iraq of using this tactic was due to a few other
reasons -- such as the Sunnis were losing the civil war in Iraq, and a whole
lot of US cash to bribe them, for example -- that likely won't/cannot be
replicated in Pakistan. Good luck with using that strategy a second time:
history repeats itself, first as tragedy and then as farce.

state power with corporate power." -- attributed to Benito Mussolini, the
Italian dictator who "invented" fascism.
