    It is true that ISI has extended cooperation in apprehending the key Taliban leaders from Karachi. No doubt it can be a big blow for Taliban but insurgencies like this always have B Plans and substitute hierarchies ready for patching up the missing jigsaws in the leadership. Mullah Barader and all key operatives who are now in custody of Pakistan are much safe than they would have been around hiding and moving their locations frequently. Visibly it looks that Taliban leadership has met a serious jolt but in my opinion there is going on a serious and tricky game which has sent message to Americans that if ISI moves a shoulder, it can fix things overnight. CIA too knows that without the help of ISI they are fighting a blind war.

    The current offensive in Marjah, Helmand Afghanistan is a part of cosmetic action and the result of possible back door deal which allowed USA to enter into that region to justify their nation that they are winning in Afghanistan. This face saving encounter was definitely engineered to provide USA a respectable exit from the region rather than with a tag of another shameful loss after Vietnam

    Pakistan’s shadowy Inter-Services Intelligence Agency suddenly decided to seize the Taliban’s number-two leader, Mullah Baradar after hosting him for years while he directed the Taliban movement officially headed by Mullah Omar.

    Pakistani leaders know that Afghan President Hamid Karzai has been seeking reconciliation talks with the Taliban and that Baradar approved contacts between Taliban leaders and Karzai’s brother. An agreement between the Taliban and the Karzai government could deprive Pakistan of influence in next-door Afghanistan. That prospect disturbs Pakistani leaders, who have long tried to maximize their power in Afghanistan to keep it from linking up with Pakistan’s rival, India.

    Pakistan’s powerful army chief, General Ashraf Kayani, recently said his country has “opened all doors’’ to cooperation with US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. But he warned that Pakistan’s “strategic paradigm has to be realized’’ in Afghanistan. He meant a postwar Afghan government friendly to Pakistan and resistant to India. This has been the obsessive aim of Pakistani policy in Afghanistan ever since Pakistani intelligence forces midwifed the birth of the Taliban in the mid-’90s.

    It’s helpful to the American cause if Pakistan now believes its best chance of maintaining influence in Afghanistan is to cooperate with US and NATO forces. But it would be deeply damaging if Pakistan were to try to block peace negotiations between the Taliban and the Karzai government.

    US military commanders in Afghanistan have wisely insisted that the war be concluded by political means. The current troop surge is aimed at convincing insurgent factions to seek a peace deal with the Afghan government. So President Obama needs to warn Pakistan that true cooperation means helping, not hindering, such an agreement.

    The fact of the situation is that unless and untill the US/Nato forces undertake ground operations i.e put troops on ground they can never achieve any reasonable sucess.However this may ask for more price in terms of casualties.So far the whole operation was based on aireal warfare which only caused colletral damage without achiving much sucess.On the other hand Pakistan Army is operating on ground thus achieving good results.Sucess only comes with a price.The taliban have been denied their safe heaven and are now running helter/scelter and thus being caught.
