AL-QAEDA ESTABLISHES 'ISLAMIC STATE' IN PAKISTAN PROVINCE
Read the report here... It seems Al-Qaeda has been so successful in winning over the local population of Waziristan, that they are now opening claiming that this section of Pakistan is a separate Islamic State. Musharraf won't touch this region, and prevents us from going there. I guess Al-Qaeda has been able to find a new base of operations...
After taking "virtual control" of the entire North Waziristan province of Pakistan, Taliban and Al Qaeda have recently "declared" the establishment of an 'Islamic State' in the area and gained a major base for their operations against the US-led forces in Afghanistan, media reports said.
"The Taliban recently declared the establishment of an 'Islamic State' in North Waziristan, and they now, through the brutal elimination of criminal elements who previously held sway, in effect rule in the rugged territory," a latest report in 'Asia Times' magazine said.
It said that by "taking control of virtually all of Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal area on the border with Afghanistan, the Taliban have gained a significant base from which to wage their resistance against US-led forces in Afghanistan.
