Oh for crying out loud...

NWF province law permits the ownership of rocket-propelled grenades,
short, medium, and long-range rockets, anti-aircraft guns and mortars.

The town of Darra Adam Khe on the edge of the NWF makes more guns than
the Taliban could possibly use.

The idea that the arrest of what is described as a "facilitator and
weapons trafficker" would possibly make any difference is laughable.

This is a population where everyone who can afford them owns heavy
weapons and every male over the age of 13 has an AK tucked away
somewhere.
