#1 Oh no! We killed the last good Talibunnies! Now all his fighters will go join Hakimullah and be bad Talibunnies. But since both kinds were happy to kill our guys, it really doesn't matter, does it?

#2 More reasons to dislike Nazir:

"In June 2012, Nazir banned polio vaccinations in his areas, and claimed that the program is being used by the US to gather intelligence and conduct drone strikes in the tribal areas. His action followed that of Hafiz Gul Bahadar, who shut down the program in North Waziristan earlier that month." - Long War Journal

#4 Nazir's successor was announced before a crowd of thousands at his funeral, said a witness.

Isn't that what you call a target rich environment?

#6 As 'brutal' as MS-NBC would call it, if you flattened one funeral (a.k.a., the famous 'Arclight'*), subsequent funerals in that region would be conducted at night and would be sparsely attended.

* No, that is not a call for drinks at the O-Club; it's in quotes.

#7 Uh, I hope a number 3 isn't a number 2 coming out of where number 1 usually comes from...

#9 It's a good thing he banned those polio vaccinations. Otherwise he would have been killed by a drone strike!

#12 Once again, personally I'll defer belief until either Ayman andor Mullah Omar + certain Other publicly confirm it.

Until then its just Bollyweird Propaganda, full of PCorrect Sound-n-Fury, meaning NUTHIN'!
