Pakistan Killed 250 “Miscreants” In Last Month

From a disappointed Associated Press:

Pakistan: 310 killed in militant fight

By BASHIRULLAH KHAN, Associated Press Writer

MIRAN SHAH, Pakistan – A month of fierce fighting near the Afghan border has killed about 250 militants and 60 Pakistani troops, the army said Friday, hours after the deaths of six soldiers in a suicide attack and roadside bombing.

Pakistan, a key ally of the United States in fighting terrorism, has deployed about 90,000 troops in the border region to try to contain al-Qaida and Taliban militants and their local supporters, who often target security forces. President Gen. Pervez Musharraf is under growing pressure from Washington to crack down on militants in the area.

Violence has surged in the region since July, when militants scrapped a September 2006 peace deal after accusing the government of violating the agreement by deploying more troops and targeting their hideouts.

“In the past one month, we lost about 60 soldiers in suicide and other attacks,” Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad told The Associated Press. “We security forces also killed about 250 miscreants during this period.” …

Yes, but is Barack Hussein Obama satisfied with their efforts.

That is the only question.
