They can't, that's why they brainwashed Pakistani children to blow themselves up in markets. They have their eyes on a route to the sea through KPK and Baluchistan as they are landlocked.
It's delusional and red lines were crossed when they created TTP. It is very convenient they blame TTP and absolve themselves of guilt, it's easy to see through their ruse if you are not blinded by their faith based blackmailing.
Their aim is to target and isolate the Punjabis and trigger a collapse of the federation so they can get their hands on KPK and Baluchistan. That's why TTP attacked the public and cultivated traitors through religion arm twisting to cause chaos, they know a Pakistani is putty in their hands as soon as they relate anything back to their faith. This was also the Al Qaeda game plan to conquer Pakistan so they must have used their manual. I can't believe there was no reaction from 2003 to 2010, the borders were not even closed or secured until a decade after. It was f**king enemy number 1, no country has tried this stunt with Pakistan before.
If the people fully backed Musharraf then Afghans would have been obliterated by USA and Pakistan. All it would have taken was a 300k troop build up at the border and tactical nukes on Paktia, Kunar and Khost, war over, the white flag would have come out for sure. A lot of lives and money saved and border secured.
But what did we get? Open border and Taliban, the very people who created TTP openly moving around in KPK and using it as a hideout in collusion with local sympathizers and Afghan refugees. There is even that disgusting Taliban university in Peshawar that should be torn down and an orphanage built on top of it. The treachery and incompetence at the top and bottom of this country is sickening.
