Apparently Pakistan, in the interest of “peace” has decided to abandon the people of the Swat Valley to the hands of the Taliban. While they are hoping this will bring peace, they are making this deal at the expense of defenseless citizens. Women, children, and those who oppose this way of life now have no hope and no way out.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — The government agreed to impose Islamic law and suspend a military offensive across a large swath of northwest Pakistan on Monday in concessions aimed at pacifying a spreading Taliban insurgency there.

The announcement came after talks with local Islamists, including one closely linked to the Taliban.

The move will likely concern the United States, which has warned Pakistan that such peace agreements allow Al Qaeda and Taliban militants operating near the Afghan border time to rearm and regroup.

Amir Haider Khan Hoti, the chief minister for the North West Frontier Province, said authorities would impose Islamic law in Malakand region, which includes the Swat Valley. Swat is a one-time tourist haven in the northwest where extremists have gained sway through brutal tactics including beheading residents, burning girls schools and attacking security forces.

He said the laws would only be implemented when the valley was peaceful.

This is another of the great concessions that are being made to appease radical Islam (if there is such a thing). The struggle for this valley has been going on for some time and perhaps the Pakistani government thinks that this will be the end of it. Hand over thousands of citizens to the mercy of the Taliban of the Swat Valley, notorious for beheading those accused of espionage and even going so far as to dig up dead bodies and hang them, and perhaps there will be peace. The Pakistani government seems to believe that the goal of the Taliban in their country is NOT to control the entire country. Tell that to Benazir Bhutto
