Pakistani Taliban Admit To Cold Blooded Execution of 23 Frontier Corps Soldiers

Only the Taliban can sit at a peace negotiating table with the government of Pakistan and just off the cuff bring up the fact that they slaughtered 23 government-subsidized military troops.

The Taliban in Pakistan have made an admission that they indeed did slaughter the 23 Frontier Corps soldiers...and of course, it was a very casual admission.

Nothing to see here.

The story comes from DAWN.

Mohmand Taliban claim killing 23 FC men

PESHAWAR: In a chilling admission on Sunday night, a militant outfit identifying itself as Mohmand Agency Taliban claimed to have killed 23 FC soldiers they had kidnapped from Shongari checkpost in the tribal region in 2010.

In a letter posted on the social media, Mohmand Agency Taliban chief Umar Khalid Khurasani said the FC soldiers had been slain to avenge what he called the custodial killing of their `fighters’ in various parts of Pakistan.

The letter in Urdu says that the Taliban had warned the government against custodial killings of their men but the government allegedly continued to kill them. Therefore, it said, they had killed the 23 FC soldiers who had been kidnapped from Shongari area of Mohmand Agency in 2010. They also uploaded a video on the social media.

The claim, however, could not be confirmed from any independent sources.

There was no verification of the news from the political administration or the FC authorities.

The Taliban letter and the video further claimed that the release of the Taliban prisoners was one of the main demands of the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan for agreeing to hold peace talks with the government.

Analysts say the Mohmand Agency Taliban has not been in favour of dialogue with the government.

Here we are folks in a peace meeting with teh top taliban and government officials. Now here the good part. In walks some special forces types surrounds these killers , arrests them, drags them outside. Lines them each up on their knees and pouts a bullet in the back of their heads. Payback done. Let the drone strikes continue until they cry uncle. Thats all these Jihadis understand. Kill them until they cry no more each and every one of them. . Slit their throats, shoot them, garrotte them, sever their heads. make it as gruesome as you can. descend to their level and make them know fear.

As long as tribal mentality prevails, there will be no solution.
