Anybody else seeing this as a failure of focus?

Pakistani Army is reported to be diverting troops away from the FATA and Northwest Frontier, as of today. The redeployment is to the Indian border, supposedly to dissuade India from any reprisals for the Mumbai terror attack.

This takes some of the heat off the Pakistani Taliban, and is likely just what the terrorists who planned the Mumbai attacks intended.

I think this is exactly the reason for the Mumbai attacks, to throw a wrench into the peace talks between India an Pakistan, as the current leader of Pakistan was warming to India, but the militants want no peace, and want the Taliban given a freer hand to operate against infidels. this was brough up about a week ago and I could not falut the logic.

Damn, the Indians were played and they fell right for it.
We have to understand why and for what aim the terrorists do what they do if we want to defeat them.
