It is heartening to note that now the US Army has started relief operation in Swat Valley, which remained battleground for a long time. There will be no denying the fact this positive gesture from the United States will create more chances for peace. The war started by former president George W. Bush will come to an end in the tenure of US President Barack Obama.

There will be no denying the fact that now Barack Obama is enjoying the status of a hero in Pakistan. The people of tribal areas will certainly be looking to him for more help. At the moment the main problem in tribal areas and other parts of Pakistan is the rampant corruption. If Obama succeeds in controlling corruption in Pakistan and tribal areas then there will be no need of war.

The people of tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border are also expecting that the US Army will launch similar relief operation in their areas. This change in the policy will result into peace in the whole world. Now the US will be knowing a country of peace loving and civilised people. But the US administration must keep one thing in mind that rulers of Pakistan are not reliable partners. They have always played a double game, which resulted into wide spread deaths and destruction in tribal areas and some other parts of Pakistan.

Rulers of Pakistan are corrupt to the core. Their bad character can be judged from the fact that they have killed their own people just for getting some dollars. Now there must direct contact between the US administration and tribal elders. This is the only way of ending war and chaos in the region.

US Army helicopters have flown their first relief missions in Pakistan's flood-ravaged northwest.

An Associated Press reporter saw four US Chinooks evacuating hundreds of people stranded for days in a mountain town in the upper reaches of the Swat Valley.

A US Embassy spokesman said Thursday the choppers had flown 12 sorties.
