The news coming out of National Security Council meeting is that there are two main problems economy and terrorism. Without economy an operation against the militants cannot be sustained. It is best for now to use the police and FC for counter terrorism until such time that the country is out of the dire economic situation. We have to pay about 8 billion dollars in loan repayments in the next few months. IMF funding will come in march. At least a years time is required before we are back on our feet.
In the meantime, we should extend the peace agreement with the TTP. A way out of the bloodshed would be to introduce Sharia in Tribal Districts on the patterns of Nizam e Adl in Swat. America and its local agents would want the count y to be turned into another Syria so that they get their foothold again. We should talk to the militants and pacify them by meeting some of their demands like Sharia with home grown solutions.
Another point is that if we can have a hybrid system in the country with joint rule of military and political parties then we can further hybridize the model with addition of TTP in ruling, There is the example of Lebanon where Hizbullah a religious party has its own army which defeated Israel in the last war.
