The people of tribal areas have attached great hope with US President Barack Obama as they thought that the new president would take real steps for elimination of terrorism, but that was not happened. Now there are indications that the US administration has been providing both financial and moral support to Taliban and terrorists. After elimination of terrorism then there will be no justification for the US role to rob the people of Pakistan and United States. This is the reason that she wants to keep the terrorism alive.

According to reports, US President Barack Obama has started reaching out to some of Pakistan's most fervent Islamist and anti-American parties, including one that helped give rise to the Taliban, trying to improve Washington's image in the nuclear-armed state.

Obama's special envoy, Richard Holbrooke, is initiating dialogue between the United States and religious parties previous administrations had largely shunned, both sides said.

"The purpose is to broaden the base of American relations in Pakistan beyond the relatively narrow circle of leaders Washington has previously dealt with,' explained Vali Nasr, senior adviser to Holbrooke.

John Bolton, US ambassador to the United Nations during the Bush presidency, questioned Holbrooke's timing for trying to engage Taliban sympathizers on the eve of elections in neighboring Afghanistan, where US forces are battling the hard-line Islamic group.

The people of tribal areas have expressed reservation over the US role in the region. According to them, the US can rightly be held responsible for the killing of thousands of people. Now the lives of millions of people are in danger due to the dirty role of both the US and Pakistani rulers.
