I still remember the day when terrorists rocked the whole world by blowing up two towers in the United States. It was really horrible day. Then all of sudden US President George W. Bush declared that terrorist attacks in the US were the handiwork of Al-Qaeda, an organisation unknown to many like us till that declaration. This is my firm belief that terrorism is really a threat to the very existence of world.

::::::::

Initially I was very enthusiastic about elimination of terrorism. I have contacted the CIA and FBI on their web sites and told them I can provide help in elimination of terrorism. I was the expectation that the US will certainly give heed to my pleas. They have called me to the US Embassy in Islamabad where two persons including a lady grilled me for three hours. I have opened my heart to them.

The people in my areas have been watching my contacts with the US officials with great interest. They were also expecting that the US may give good treatment to me. Later the officials after grilling told me that the decision about your role in war on terror will be decided in Washington. They have given another date for the meeting. At that time I was in financial trouble, but I have taken a loan from friend for bearing the expenses of my visit to Islamabad. But it was bolt from the blue for me when I reached the US Embassy I was told that the persons, who gave me time were not present. This was my impression that the US citizens never speak lies as after all they are the most civilized people in the world.

Then I started writing in OpEdnews.com in which I have tried my best to bring truth the fore. Every morning I leave my bed with the hope that I will receive a positive response from the US, but everyone morning I get disappointment

Now terrorists have almost taken control of Bajaur Agency, tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border. Now they are making my fun. My only mistake is that I have attached expectation with the US administration. Now a change in my feeling is occurring. Now I have been losing the hope. One thing has become clear that Bush has launched war on terror for creating more terrorism. Now at least I have no expectation from him and his administration. Was I wrong in my assumption that war on terror is really fought for controlling terrorism? What do you think?
