Taliban Vow Revenge
And now, it is time for "happy nation" to be reintroduced to "police nation." From ABC.net: "Taliban leaders are warning of revenge attacks against the Pakistani government and foreign targets. "Now Pakistani rulers, president Zardari and the army will be our first targets. America will be our second target," Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), or Taliban Movement of Pakistan, said from an undisclosed location. Across the border in Afghanistan, president Hamid Karzai said bin Laden had paid the price for his actions. Mr Karzai said the killing showed that the Afghan insurgency was being led from training bases outside the country. He urged the Taliban to lay down their weapons and stop fighting. News of the killing of the Al Qaeda leader is still filtering across Afghanistan, where millions of people are illiterate or don't have access to radio and television. But many civilians are not expecting a reprieve from the violence across the country. The Taliban began its spring offensive yesterday, with a series of attacks, including a deadly blast by a 12 year old suicide bomber."
