Taliban and their followers have been empowered during recent years. How long will this continue? Does Afghanistan has a chance if Coalition forces withdraw their troops. How about Pakistan? Can Pakistani forces subdue Taliban properly, or Taliban will continue to destabilize Pakistani western provinces?

Pakistan Army has already subdued the Pakistani Taliban threatening the government.
The only Taliban active in Pakistan presently are those who are the guests of the Waziris and fighting in Afghanistan.
 
The Afghan Government doesn't stand a chance if the coalition stays. Leaving too fast is probably not a good idea, but I agree with Gharanai when he says a deadline for withdraw must be set.
 
Here's the crux of the problem; you head tells you that you don't like the Taliban, but will you heart permit you to fight for a foriegn invader?

Looks like the Pakistani army is taking two steps forward but one step back. This week's raids show that the Taliban still carries a punch in Pakistan. Maybe it is for real and the threat has not been eradicated or, as Gharani has intimated, it's a ploy to make Pakistan more dependent on the US.

Pakistan faces new wave of Taliban attacks


http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/10/16/pakistan.blast/index.html?section=cnn_latest

Despite the military offensive, militants have continued to strike with relative impunity inside Pakistan -- raising concerns about the ability of the government's security forces to maintain control.

The latest militant attack happened Friday in Peshawar, when a suicide car bomber detonated near a police station, killing 13 people -- most of them civilians -- authorities said.

Security personnel opened fire on the car when the bomber drove through the gate of the police compound, said Shafqaat Malik, head of a police bomb unit. The vehicle exploded seconds later, Malik said.

The dead include three policemen, two women and a child, Peshawar police official Akhtar Munir said. Ten others were injured.

Friday's violence comes a day after militants launched a string of attacks that killed at least 30 Pakistani police officers and civilians, Pakistani authorities said. At least 10 attackers also died.

Western media is about the least reliable source of news . The reality is that the militants are getting desperate. The attacks are random they are trying to strike anywhere. In the past their ops have followed a plan. Not this time, its just literally spray and pray. And even that is not good enough for every one strike 9 attempts are foiled.
