    Abstract

    We write in the aftermath of another bomb attack in a Pakistani city
    (August 2009). This time it is Lahore, where this year there have
    already been three attacks striking at the heart of the city. This signals
    a conflict that is no longer restricted to the distant, remote regions of
    Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) but is spreading
    northwards and into Pakistan’s heartlands. The attacks were carried out
    by the Taliban in retaliation for the military offensive in the Swat Valley
    (in the North-West Frontier Province). The insurgency is viewed by
    many ordinary Pakistanis as well as the state machinery as a major threat
    to the country’s stability and trajectory (Mohammad 2008). Contrary
    to the Taliban’s expectations, it is now fuelling considerable popular
    support for the government’s actions.
