Follow-Up on Supplying NATO Via Peshawar

Following up on my previous post about supplying NATO forces in Afghanistan via Peshawar, an interesting hypothesis about why there is suddenly such fierce pressure by insurgents against the route is:

La route pakistanaise est en effet de plus en plus menacée par des insurgés chassés de la Zone tribale de Bajaur, où l'armée pakistanaise se bat depuis l'été dernier.

So, if this is true, it was Washington's pressure on Pakistan to attack the Taliban in Bajaur this past August that resulted in pressure (by insurgents pushed out of Bajaur) against NATO supply lines. Ask and ye shall receive!

Are folks in Washington seeing the big picture here?
