Pakistani Taliban warn America it will soon “burn”

Drone attacks on Pakistan’s tribal areas have intensified in recent days. These come after it was revealed that the US government had granted approval to the CIA to expand drone attacks.

But the attacks have caused growing anger in Pakistan, as civilians continue to be killed and homes and villages are destroyed. Jamshed Ayaz Khan, a Pakistan-based defense analyst, told Al Jazeera that a “hundred per cent [of Pakistanis] are against the drone attacks”.

Pakistani Taliban militants have warned America that it will soon “burn”. Analysts have long doubted the Pakistani Taliban, operating out of remote mountains along the Afghan border, had the sophistication to plan and execute a bomb attack in a Western country on their own. They can, however, support and train people who are able to travel to the West and carry out attacks.

The United States is convinced Pakistani Taliban militants allied with al Qaeda and operating out of northwestern Pakistani border regions were behind an attempted car-bomb attack in New York’s Times Square on May 1.
