Suicide Attack on Pak Army – pointer to the future?

Is this attack a harbinger of things to come in Pakistan?  I think Musharraf and his men did not completely evaluate the full potency of the beast that they had carefully nurtured all these years.  The Lal Masjid event may have increased the number of sympathizers for the Jehadi movement and such attacks could be their way of retaliating back!  The Govt. ought to plan to reduce the feeling of victimization amongst the more stricter Sunnis a little carefully.

At least 13 soldiers were killed and 15 others injured on Saturday when a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into a military convoy in Pakistan’s restive tribal region in an apparent retaliation by pro-Taliban militants to the recent crackdown on the Lal Masjid.
