With the death of Tehrik-e-Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud being confirmed, it is hoped that the wave of terror gripping the country will lose strength. While Pakistani government officials are yet to give an official reaction to Mehsud’s death, the White House has said that Pakistan will be a safer place now that the country’s number one enemy is gone.
How will Mehsud’s death change the tactics in the offensive against militants in the tribal areas?
Will the ‘successful’ drone attack affect Pak-US relations in fight against the Taliban?
Will it really make Pakistan a safer place or will a new, more dangerous TTP leader emerge as Mehsud’s successor?
