Tirah valley operation intensifies, 23 soldiers killed | Pakistan | DAWN.COM
Pakistan army has no control over the whole Khyber region.
I believe it is the second or third time that Pakistan Army has entered this region since Independence.
Kurram Valley has many Shia tribesmen who have been slaughtered, and I believe the road linking Kurram to rest of Pakistan has been blocked for many years.
Khyber is Afridi area.
Orakzai is Orakzai area.
Waziristan has been a virtually independent Emirate.
Pakistan has allies in Kurram Agency, but not for long, they will be slaughtered, silenced soon.
23 soldiers including elite commandos killed vs 30 militants killed, that too after softening up by gunships, jets, artillery and mortars. :shocked:
Speaks volumes of their quality of training and strategy!
I don't know if this attack negates the Muree Agreement of 2011 ?
why all areas called agency???
The British Indian Empire was divided into:
Presidencies (directly administered): Basically, an Imperial Plenipotentiary, or Official, presided over the direct governance of these regions.
Princely States (loyal vassals to the Emperor/Empress): There were many small kingdoms, and kings and princes, whom the British kept in good humour, as long as they were loyal to the Empire.
Agencies (difficult to rule lawless regions, best left alone, as long as they do not impede the British Army movements): The Empire had its agents who actually negotiated some kind of loose control over these lawless territories with the local tribesmen to enable the free movement of the British or British Indian Army, and hence the term agency.
It all follows from that.
in this way goras should made whole pakistan a agency in 1947
I have added some more details in my original post. In a way, what you are saying is correct. The entire Pakistan is acting as an agent, either of the Saudis or the US, so the whole of Pakistan is an agency, not a nation.
