Has any one made a grand total of people killed and wounded by the TTP in just the last 30 days .Please some one in the media do this sum and send a summary to the TTP lovers like Nawaz Sharif , Mulla Fazal and JI Amir . Imran Khan should also be shown these figures and then they should be asked to re read the statement of the Army Chief who has said in no uncertain terms that the TTP and its terrorist ideology is the main enemy of Pakistan and we should not have any dialogue with them till they accept our constitution , accept democracy and lay down their arms . If we all unite we can eliminate this nuisance once and for all like they did in Sri Lanka.

The bombings continue and innocents keep on dying. We condemn these cowardly acts in the strongest of ways and send our condolences to the families of the people who are killed in these senseless violence. It is sad that the terrorists do not realize that with their killings they do not take a life, but they kill a bread earner, who may have been the sole supporter of a large family. But do they care? I think not, as they keep attacking day in and day out. Their current objective is to derail the elections in Pakistan. It is proven now, though a recent Pew Poll, that majority of Pakistanis have totally rejected terrorism and they view the terrorists as the biggest threat to their security. The TTP know that and they are on their last breath. In their desperation they are trying to inflict as much damage to the Pakistanis as possible. We stand by the people of Pakistan as the bravely brace another bunch of terrorist storms. We have no doubts that yet again the people of Pakistan will defeat the enemy
