A few thoughts...
Why is it a good idea to publicly declare what/when/where your future military actions are going to be?
I think "Spring Offensives" are fashionable in that part of the world, so it was probably to be expected.
If the US military killed a bunch of the bad guys and couldn't win the war, why would anyone think that Pakistan can do it?
If Pakistan wins this "battle" does that mean we can declare victory and everyone can then go home?
This story is probably just a PR campaign more than anything.
Look at the key phrase ..."the Pakistani military is now talking
about attacking"... Talking, huh? The Taliban doesn't seem to do a lot of talking, they take action.
