Sounds like full scale war to me. Good readers may wonder why I update on Pakistan from time to time but 73% of the attacks in Afghanistan come from areas that border the tribal areas. If OBL is still kicking that is where he is and Zarrwahiri is. Also a full blown civil war puts Pakistans nuclear weapons up for grabs really not good.
The folks at the long war journal have put together some good information on this.
This also just out from the AP
