    Your guess is just as wrong as US false pretext of wmds in Iraq.

    Like I said who the hell are you to Reject of accept what's in for Afghanistan?
    If they like it that way their will live with it. You have 0 right and credibility to act an an international police. By you I mean NATO

    he was never a "leader", more like a platoon commander who went rogue even after mullah Omar openly ordered him to stop fighting against Pakistan and to help him in afghanistan instead. mehsud's response was in the negative. and you know that is right because it was all over the news and the u.s. state department even raised eye brows over this and tried to make it look like the Pakistanis are protecting the afghan taliban so mullah Omar is just returning the favor. This is an undeniable fact.

    NATO as nothing to do with this thread, and I don't even live in a NATO country.
    Better luck, thinking out the next response.

    If he never was a Taliban, how come Mullah Omar had any authority to give him any orders?

    Just a friendly way to remind of forum rules, and a helping link if a serious problem is the cause.

    read my post again, a low level platoon commander is not a high leader in any organization.

    His rank is of no importance if the goal is to show that some TTP members have formerly
    been Talibans reporting to Mullah Omar.

    rank defines everything, there is a big difference between a general and a foot soldier even though both belong to the same army.

    If Pakistan trains 1000 Taliban foot soldiers, and then they change allegiance to TTP,
    then that is important.
    If the 1000 foot soldiers join Afghan Talibans to attack ANA, and receive
    replacement assault rifles, ammunition and explosives from Pakistan, that is important.
    If they then join TTP forces to attack innocent Pakistanis, then it is really important.
    Restart reading the thread, if You don't follow the logic.

    Yeah so stop right there. The fact that you're still under this ill conceived and misconceived notion that Pakistan somehow trains the taliban foot soldiers right there throws your credibility out the window. The ground reality is that they neither need training or arms from us or anyone for that matter. They have 30 years worth of experience fighting the soviets, themselves and now the americans; they are more than capable of training and arming themselves. Heck, they can probably give us some training!

    And You expect that it is believable that the Taliban appeared without someone backing them
    with funding and training.
    Plenty of people here on PDF that brag about Pakistans support to the Taliban.

    I'm one of those who says that we support the taliban. what you fail to understand is the nature of support. Our support for them is limited to the extent of understanding their point of view that they are against drugs and crime and make a concerted effort instill justice in their society (albeit it could've been better but never the less was a billion % better than what was their before), they never instigated 911 and that they were correct in demanding proof that obl did 911 prior to handing him over, something that the u.s. still hasn't provided to this very day. Let's face it, they enjoy the support of the masses in afghanistan for a reason; they hold the moral higher ground as far as the people (especially the deeply conservative ones which is most of afghanistan) is concerned.
