Taliban: 'Open war' in Pakistan as bomb kills 14

The Pakistani Taliban declared "open war" Tuesday in response to military offensives in the northwest, saying it staged a bombing that destroyed an air force truck and killed up to 14 people, including a child.

"It is an open war between us and them," Pakistani Taliban spokesman Maulvi Umar told The Associated Press. "If these kinds of operations continue against us in Swat and in the tribal areas, we will continue this."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ultimately, the only answers here are political and social, and must include relieving the burdens of poverty and corruption on Pakistan's people, along with total inclusion in the political process.
