I Suspect He is Not Bluffing

Pol-i-Charki Prison has had a wing taken over by prisoners. "We can take all these prisoners in one hour," Mohammed Qasim Hashimzai, the deputy justice minister, told The Associated Press as he traveled to the prison Monday. "But to prevent bloodshed we are trying to negotiate."
I rather think he isn't bluffing.
Past experience shows us that almost nothing is off the table when it comes to retaking an Afghan prison ("airstrikes"?). I imagine that the AQ and TB elements that started this will get their martyrdom handed to them if they don't surrender.

UPDATE: Hmmmm.
