    Operation Lionheart: Joint Afghan-Pakistani-American offensive around Durand Line

    Interesting news on a joint effort between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the US component of the NATO ISAF forces. They are coordinating an offensive to drive the Taliban out of havens inside Pakistan and concentrating them along the Durand Line.

    What's new is the supportive tone about the Pakistan Army being made by the Afghans. Could be a continuation of the turn in relations that seems to have begun with Zardai and Karzai's chuminess.

    Meanwhile, Afghan Defense Ministry on Sunday disclosed that a tri-partite operation dubbed 'Qalb-e-Shir' or 'Lion Heart' with the involvement of Afghan troops, NATO-led International Security Assistance (ISAF) and Pakistani army has been launched against insurgents in the border area 10 days ago.

    The objective of this operation, Azimi asserted, was to sandwich the militants on both sides of the Durand Line the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    "On one side of the line are Afghan and ISAF troops while on the other side is Pakistani army. We support the operation carried out by Pakistan army and Pakistani side backs our operation against militants," he noted.

    International and Afghan troops and their counterparts in Pakistan this month launched the anti-militant 'Operation Lionheart' along the border.

    “This operation will help to deny the enemies of Afghanistan safe havens in Pakistan,” the spokesman for a NATO-led force Brig-Gen Richard Blanchette, told the media.

    Cooperation between NATO troops and the Pakistani army was the best it had ever been, said Brig-Gen Blanchette.

    The cooperation was the result of tripartite meetings between the NATO-led ISAF security force in Afghanistan, the Afghan military and Pakistani forces, said Blanchette.

    Pakistani forces are probably supplying Gatorade to the coalition forces I bet.

      You sure are a proud Pakistani. Look how you are trying to enhance Pakistan's reputation. NOT!

      It is strange that no Indian or Chinese living in the West will ever talk bad about their army or their country. Mind you one is a dictatorship one party rule and the other one is a broken Jagirdari (gandhi clan, Lallu clan etc. etc) party system. Still Indians and Chinese have far more self-respect than so many West settled Pakistanis. Pity!

      Is that because you are a full blown Islamist? or just suffering from low self esteem. (BTW being an Islamist and low self esteem go hand in hand)

      This is the result of Pak army's belated action in Bajore area. Finally NATO and Pak army are "equals". We waited far too long to conduct a serious military operation against these pathetic tribal barbarians. As a result, NATO didn't take Pak army seriously.

      You will now see more intelligence sharing and more joint ops. Hopefully the mutual trust reaches a point where Pak army is provided with drones so that we ourselves can send the Arab and Uzbek jihadis straight to the Jahannum.

        So I am suppose to lie and sing praises? Its obvious this whole mention of Pakistan in there is just to fool and appease the anti-American population of Pakistan. Grow up, seriously. Singing blind praises and making a clown out of yourself does not enhance Pakistan's reputation.

                  Let them repeat the history. Things will be return to the natural order eventually.

                    Afghanistan will always be like it always was... All the success stories and victories are noise with a spin and for home consumption.... The world will know once the smoke clears.

                    But as the dust begin to settle after seven long years of one victory and success after another some very familiar tone has started echoing the mountains of A-Stan

                    BTW This is not the first time, I am sure it won't be the last.

                      You mean to say, Afghanistan will always be a place where poverty stricken uncouth tribal warlords kill each other, where woman are worse than animals, where there are no jobs, where opium is the mainstay for survival?

                      Man that's hardly something to be proud of or smirk about.

                      Afghanistan was let alone to be the way it was for long time because the global powers never considered it to be useful for any purpose. Additionally the global powers (romans, ottomans) never considered it be a danger.

                      However the game got changed when Russians started looking for warm waters, and Brits felt that Russians should not get it.

                      That's the time that trials and tribulations of Afghanistan started and they are still on. There are only two choices for Afghans now.

                      1. Be part of the civilized global order, and turn Afghanistan into a prosperous state
                      2. Be bombed day and night and keep Afghanistan as poverty stricken where warlords rule.

                      It is not America's rule, it is God's injunction that the nations who fail to adapt are removed from the earth and new nations take over their lands.

                      Pakistan is especially linked to the fate of Afghanistan., simply because the two countries are joined at the hip.

                      If Pakistan works for stabliizing and civilizing Afghanistan, it will be good for both. If on the other hand Pakistan or Pakistanis [email protected] around and create stink in Afghanistan, then guess what, we won't have good smell in our house too.

                      Afghanistan is a speck, a tiny dot with zero "developed" resources, no education, no police or army worth a dime. Their population size is less than a couple of Pakistani cities (say Karachi + Lahore).

                      And the last thing Pakistanis should do (from human and civil behavior pov), is to encourage instability or laugh at the abject lawlessness in Afghanistan.

                      This is a golden chance to change the fate of Afghanistan. There is no reason to talk about Afghan history (last 200 years) especially if their history is all about lawlessness, poverty, and lack of human values.

                      If Pakistanis do not support development and peace in afghanistan (doesn't matter who brings peace to afghanistan), pretty soon our own home will burn too and it already has started burning. And this is nothing to smirk about.
