The Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a drone attack from USA into the territory of Pakistan beyond the FATA region and this news has hit the headlines and most of the people are trying to read too much into it but it seems it was more to do with the internal political dynamics of USA rather than any grand geo political strategic planning or resolve to flush out the terror modules in Afghanistan.
The internal political dynamics in USA and bitter fight between republicans and democrats for presidential campaign more often trigger some military adventure from ruling US dispensation to surprise their own audience and the entire world.
In December 2003 when Geroge W Bush was near to complete his first term the fugitive Iraq President Saddam Hussain was captured in famous “Red Dawn” military operation from US Iraqi army.
In May 2011 when US president Barack Obama was slipping from his popularity and was ceding the ground to republicans with his perception of for being too soft on the issue of war on terrorism the US military launched unprecedented harsh operation inside Pakistan to kill the perpetrator of 9\11 and in one stroke Obama watched the operation to kill Osama and regained what he had lost .
The killing of Mullah Akhtar Mansour inside Pakistan is another surprise element from USA aggravated more from the internal political dynamics which reminds the people in the USA about the role of Hillary Clinton who was the secretary state when Osama Bin laden was killed.
Politics has its own character and compulsions which pursued leaders to take huge risks when the essence of political power is in real danger.
