The Americans and their international allies haven’t been able to defeat the Taliban with armored vehicles. So are we to believe that the Pakistanis can deal a death blow to the Taliban with a bus?
Well, that's the hope. How? This isn't just a bus. If you step inside, you'll see it's a mobile courtroom, meant to help with the huge backlog of cases in Pakistan's legal system. That huge delay in cases being heard has brought great frustration with the government. And in the northwest of Pakistan, that often means turning to the Taliban to judge disputes.
The idea here is that the bus and its express route to justice will marginalize the Taliban and build up confidence in the democratic government.
Next stop might be Kabul. That’s not the plan, but it might be a good idea. The Afghan capital is less than 200 miles away from Peshawar where the bus currently is, and Afghanistan could surely use some help against the Taliban as well.
