Post-Mumbai...

...Pakistan looks for a little redemption...

Pakistani forces have arrested 40 people and destroyed suspected militant houses and camps in a key operation in the Khyber region, officials say.

The section of the Khyber Pass that passes through the Jamrud sub-district is the most insecure stretch of the road.

Witnesses told the BBC that the security forces were using artillery fire and helicopter gunships to pound suspected militant positions in the Ghundai and Shahkas areas of Jamrud.
At some point, Pakistan will have to decide which way they're really gonna fall.

Their current highwire act isn't gonna work forever.
