whose telling the truth?

i for one think this should have happened large scale a long time ago instead of using conventional troops. i do realize that the usa armed many Afghanis in the war with the soviets and it's biting them on their arse. i do hwever think there are afghans who would like to see the taliban and al qeada disappear, not only in pakistan but in afghanistan.

i's say they telling the truth. i think the pakistan goeple are talking out of their bottom when the say people cant enter pakistan without them knowing.
it isn't a border that can be properly manned without vast sums of cash and resources being
thrown at it. two things pakistan are short of.
the afghans don't care about the border all they want is control that whole region of pakistan.
