No saner person in this world will accept the role of a leader as it is the most difficult job. Those who are leading their nations have exceptional qualities. Just look to US President Barack Obama. He has the exceptional qualities. He has the guts to change the cource of history. I think he is changing the history. When George W. Bush was ruling the world everyone was talking of war, but now everyone is talking of peace. After the election of Obama as US President the situation has changed in tribal areas as now the people have been talking of peace. Now the people have been showing their opposition to war. Now they want real friendship with the United States. Now they want to hold talks with the US administration.

Though it will be look funny if I am commenting on an issue as at the moment I am myself a drama. My life has become drama. There is a lot of thrill in this drama. My dear friends at the OEN has made me the lead for a day. In other words I shall say that they have made me the leader.

Now I think I can play the role of a leader. Now I can lead my people to the peace and prosperity. Now I think I can hold talks with the US administration on behalf of moderate Taliban. Barack Obama has already expressed his consent to holding of talks with Taliban. Like most of the people I also think the war is not a solution to any problem. The problem can be resolved through talks.

Just to keep the readers updated Taliban movement has been started from Bajaur Agency. I think it was in 1994 when the Taliban movement began from Bajaur Agency. Later this movement has entered to Afghanistan. Now this movement should be controlled in Bajaur Agency and then the process should be extended to Afghanistan and other parts of Pakistan.

I have the belief that I can convince the moderate Taliban to accept the US presence in tribal areas and Afghanistan as this is in the interest of the areas in which they are living. I think this is in the interest of both Pakistan and Afghanistan if the US remains in the areas. I think this is in the interest of my children and my wife that the US develop the tribal areas.

I think I am in a position to defend the US presence in Afghanistan and Pakistan and tribal areas. I can work for Barack Obama. One thing which I want to bring to your notice that tribal areas have natural resources in abudance. The only thing which we lack is non-existence of system. The US can help us in evolving a system for the tribal areas. As far as Afghanistan and Pakistan are concerned they both are soveriegn countries. They both should be told in clear term to manage their affairs on their own. There is no need for the United States to spend money on these countries.

Though limited, but I have the knowledge. I can handle the situation in tribal areas in a good manner. At the moment I am just needing the recognition. I think the OEN is giving me that recognition. In a month or two you will see a big change in the region. From now onwards the people of this region will be grateful to the US for its role. No one will be hating the US citizens rather they will be loved by the people of the region. Can I become a leader? I do not want to be a leader. I think the journalistic job is good for me.
