Extensive CIA-operated Predator drone strikes against remote hide-outs of al Qaeda, the Taliban and other groups in Pakistan are forcing many insurgents out of Waziristan to other areas.
Pakistan's Taliban militia is vowing to launch terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe, but they lack the capability to conduct global attacks on their own, according to terrorism specialists.
"However, you can say that Al Qaeda does have the capacity to stage terrorist attacks in U.S. and Europe, as it has worldwide cells and networks. And if it provides the platform, then TTP-trained militants could stage attacks inside the U.S. and Europe. But these terrorist could not necessarily be members of TTP from Pakistan," said Mr. Ali, president of the Islamabad-based FATA Research Center.
"However, this policy has had a huge blowback effect on Pakistan in the shape of a rise of religious extremism and unimaginable proliferation of militant groups in the country," said Ashraf Ali, a Pakistani analyst on the Taliban.
