There are still people who consider that this world has to vanish according to them. This is the desire of powerful people. But they forget one thing--that this world has been created by God the Great and He is running its affairs. World affairs are being run according to the wishes of people. If majority of people want that there will be war, death and destruction--then there will certainly be death and destruction.

There was a time when Americans voted George W. Bush into power, because at that time majority of people were in favour of war. But now the situation has changed. This time Americans voted Barack Obama into power, as now the majority of people want peace.

According to the tribal elders, there will be change in the war on terror now. The main reason for terrorism is rampant corruption. If Obama succeeds in hitting corruption, then there is bright chance of winning this war on terror. Through use of force--this problem cannot be solved. There should be an awareness campaign in tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border. This is the only way of winning this war on terror. This time the people of tribal areas will fully cooperate with the new US administration.

 

Muhammad Khurshid, a resident of Bajaur Agency, tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border is journalist by profession. He contributes articles and news stories to various online and print newspapers. His subject matter is terrorism. He is also (more...)
