When the Second War has ruined the whole world and there was a time when the very existence of this world was at stake at that time the then British prime minister Winston Churchill said jaw-jaw-jaw is better than war-war-war. You lose nothing by talking. War kills people.
Now the same is the situation as there is still threat to the very existence of the world. The whole humanity is in danger. Deaths and destruction has been affecting the people mentally. Now the time arrives that we shall repeat the words of Churchill that jaw jaw is better than war war. This is an established fact that no war can be won. The war only brings death and destruction.
Like most of the people, I also consider that talk is better than fighting. But first, all the non-state actors should be disarmed. Taliban or terrorists should be told in clear terms that if they are holding the weapons, no talks will be held with them. Pakistan, while taking decision about talks with Taliban, must make sure that the non-state actors should lay down their weapons.
I think US President Obama will also favour talks, but he will certainly insist on establishing rule of law in tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border before allowing the holding of talks. Those have taken up arms against the state must be dealt with an iron hand.
According to tribal elders, Barack Obama will tell the Pakistani rulers to fullfill their responsibilities. This is my firm belief that Obama can deliver. There is no reason that we may suspect that Obama will fail. His success is certain as this is my belief that he has been chosen by God the Great for a noble job. His emergence as a leader of the world is a miracle. Now there will be peace and happiness all over the world.
