Swat valley battle far from over

Following a major army offensive, the Pakistan government is in control in Swat but the area is still a military zone.

    Pakistan's military says its war with the Taliban in the Swat Valley is not yet over.

    It has been more than a year since the army launched a major offensive there, and relative peace does seem to have been restored. But some believe that the Taliban fighters will resurface if the army pulls out.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
