Pakistan, Afghanistan Pledge to Fight Common Enemies

Ever get the feeling that they might be talking about the West?

Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf met with his counterpart Hamid Karzai in the Afghan capital Kabul on Wednesday, to discuss ways to curb the sharp rise in attacks by the Taleban. Pakistan's leader vowed to join forces with Afghanistan to help defeat the insurgents.

But didn't Pakistan just sign a peace treaty with the Taliban in Pakistan's tribal belt? Hey, you know, tribal belt rhymes with Bible belt. Funny.

Taleban insurgents have mounted a series of powerful offensives and deadly ambushes throughout the country. More than 2,000 people, mostly militants, have been killed since January.

The Taliban's Spring offensive sprung a leak. Haha...that was clever. And how come their is always like thirty fucking different ways to spell everything when reporting on the Middle East, Usama, Osama, Taliban, Taleban, Talaban. I'm fed up with this shit. I'll be in my dressing room. Yes, that means the car.

Pakistan faces its own problems in the country's semi-autonomous tribal areas. Some reports say pro-Taleban militants have essentially taken over several districts near the Afghan border, where they enforce strict Islamic social codes.
Tuesday, Pakistan signed a new peace accord with pro-Taleban militants in the country's North Waziristan tribal area.

So Pakistan vowed to fight those who they just signed a peace treaty with? Crazy, crazy Muslim people.
