One by one they are eliminated from the sky Where the used to illuminiate rising so high Now gone creating a vacuum in our hearts They will rise martyres from their graves dirts

I never thought I would say this but I solute the bravery of these policemen who in the current circumstances everyday put on their uniform and go to work and walk around in the open. The barbarians who commit these atrocities in the name of Islam and dont have the guts to attack Isaf in Afghanistan are only strengthening the resolve of the people that their brand of Islam will NEVER be acceptable to people of Pakistan.

Military operation is the only way because the terrorists hiding in FATA and across the Pak-Afghan border are still posing threat to the people of Pakistan as evident from the bomb blasts and target killings. Any other solution to the terrorism is next to impossible because the terrorists have committed serous crimes and non of them will come out for negotiations with Government officials for simple reason not to be caught by the law enforcement agencies.
