Pakistanis want to know if army has beaten Taliban this time

Pakistan's military operation to clear the Taliban from the Swat Valley won support from residents who had to flee the fighting and may find their homes and business destroyed when they return. Now those same residents worry that the army hasn't killed or captured the Taliban leaders, and that this offensive may turn out like the previous two: a military defeat, and an even stronger Taliban.
