    A few exerpts that are really troubling to me.

    "Pakistani strategic circles are convinced that as a proven military commander, Mullah Dadullah will be able to work wonders this spring and finally give the Taliban the edge over the Kabul administration and its NATO allies."

    A notable addition to the Taliban arsenal this year is surface-to-air missiles, notably the SAM-7. What the Taliban desperately needed were sensors for their missiles. These detect aircraft emissions designed to misdirect the missiles. And it so happened that Pakistan had such devices. Now that the Taliban and Pakistan have a deal, these missiles will be made available to the Taliban. Much like the Stingers that changed the dynamics of the Afghan resistance against the Soviets, the SAMs could help turn things Mullah Dadullah's, the Taliban's and Pakistan's way
