Gruesome attack will ensure a continuation of the U.S. war on terror

The gruesome murder of at least 126 innocents in Peshawar, Pakistan, including children, by the Pakistani Taliban is a direct result of U.S. foreign policy in the region.

Also known as Tehrik-i-Taliban, the group is an amalgamation of the Afghan Taliban and al-Qaeda. Both groups were created and nurtured by Pakistani intelligence in collaboration with the CIA.

Tehrik-i-Taliban draws its leadership from Pakistan’s tribal regions where the CIA has conducted a ceaseless drone campaign.

During the Obama presidency, the U.S. has conducted nearly 400 drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia, killing more than 2,400 people, at least 273 of them reportedly civilians. The body count is six times higher under Obama than Bush. The number of civilians killed, however, may be far higher because the Defense Department does not report civilian casualties.

In September, the architect of the secret and illegal invasion and bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War, Henry Kissinger, said during a book tour “there were fewer civilian casualties in Cambodia than there have been from American drone attacks.”

Tehrik-i-Taliban is not supported by the notorious S Wing of the ISI, the Pakistani intelligence organization (the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani network, the Gulbuddin Hekmatyar network, and Lashkar-e-Taiba are all supported by Pakistani intelligence).

Pakistan has attempted to negotiate with Tehrik-i-Taliban, but this effort was derailed by the United States and its drone campaign.

Days before a scheduled meeting, a drone killed the leader of Tehrik-i-Taliban, Hakimullah Mehsud. The government of Pakistan, under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, accused the U.S. of violating an informal agreement to put drone strikes on hold during the discussions.
