Will Pakistan sustain this campaign?

Pakistan on verge of operation targeting Taliban

The government is planning to launch a major military offensive in the North Waziristan tribal region following a series of brutal attacks in recent weeks, according to a senior Pakistani official.
Pakistan has a history of not pushing these attacks more than a few weeks before agreeing to some kind of truce that allows the Taliban to survive and withdraw their troops.  This time they are using aircraft more than army units but that is basically a raiding strategy that does not control space for more than the trasitory mintes the planes are over their target.
