It seems that terrorists are successful in their bid as they have successfully been keeping the United States engaged in unnecessary war. Terrorists who have been enjoying full support of some rulers have been trying to destroy this whole world. There will be no denying the fact that they have gone mad and this is the reason that they have been destroying the world in which they have also been living.

Either the rulers of United States are unaware or they have also been working round the clock to keep this war continue till the destruction of this whole world. Actually they have been paid by the terrorists for this purpose as at the moment terrorists are the richest people in this world. Terrorists have earned a lot of money during the war.

Now there are reports that the United States has been considering the option of using ground forces in Pakistan. If that happens that will be the worst scenario. There will be no denying the fact that some US forces have already been positioned in Pakistan. But the war-mongers have been opening some secrets as they want to create more justification for violence in Pakistan and tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border. Thousands of people have already been killed in the ongoing Pakistan Army operation in tribal areas. Pakistan has many problems, but the main problem is rampant corruption by the rulers.

Senior American military commanders in
Afghanistan are pushing for an expanded campaign of Special Operations ground raids across the border into Pakistan's tribal areas, a risky strategy reflecting the growing frustration with Pakistan's efforts to root out militants there.

The proposal, described by American officials in Washington and Afghanistan, would escalate military activities inside Pakistan, where the movement of American forces has been largely prohibited because of fears of provoking a backlash.

The plan has not yet been approved, but military and political leaders say a renewed sense of urgency has taken hold, as the deadline approaches for the Obama administration to begin withdrawing its forces from Afghanistan. Even with the risks, military commanders say that using American Special Operations troops could bring an intelligence windfall, if militants were captured, brought back across the border into Afghanistan and interrogated.

The Americans are known to have made no more than a handful of forays across the border into Pakistan, in operations that have infuriated Pakistani officials. Now, American military officers appear confident that a shift in policy could allow for more routine incursions.

America's clandestine war in Pakistan has for the most part been carried out by armed drones operated by the C.I.A.

Additionally, in recent years, Afghan militias backed by the C.I.A. have carried out a number of secret missions into Pakistan's tribal areas. These operations in Pakistan by Afghan operatives, known as Counterterrorism Pursuit Teams, have been previously reported as solely intelligence-gathering operations. But interviews in recent weeks revealed that on at least one occasion, the Afghans went on the offensive and destroyed a militant weapons cache.

The decision to expand American military activity in Pakistan, which would almost certainly have to be approved by President Obama himself, would amount to the opening of a new front in the nine-year-old war, which has grown increasingly unpopular among Americans. It would run the risk of angering a Pakistani government that has been an uneasy ally in the war in Afghanistan, particularly if it leads to civilian casualties or highly public confrontations.

Still, one senior American officer said, "We've never been as close as we are now to getting the go-ahead to go across."

The officials who described the proposal and the intelligence operations declined to be identified by name discussing classified information.

Ground operations in Pakistan remain controversial in Washington, and there may be a debate over the proposal. One senior administration official said he was not in favor of cross-border operations -- which he said have been generally "counterproductive" -- unless they were directed against top leaders of Al Qaeda. He expressed concern that political fallout in Pakistan could negate any tactical gains
