Waiting game

Sir: In reference to your editorial ‘Waiting game’ (April 29), I know many people who think the rebels cannot be defeated. They forget that in the nineteenth century the British were able to quell rebellion in our wild northern areas. The Taliban believe that they are on high moral ground because our politicians literally begged them to hold talks. The sooner a military action is taken against them, the better will it be for us. Unless we take the militants head on, we are not safe.
