Though it is very difficult to support President George W. Bush at this critical juncture, honestly speaking, I have been supporting him in his war on terrorism and praying for his success.
His war on terrorism can be justified as terrorists have made the life for the common people very difficult. The President, however, committed several mistakes as he acted on wrong information. His selection of partners, particularly in the Muslim world, was wrong. He chose dishonest and greedy leaders, who instead of liberating the humanity from terrorism remained busy in filling their pockets with dollars.
The United States and West were always provided wrong information about the tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border. Mainstream media played a very negative role in the war on terrorism. US and Western journalists never went to the field to confirm the information given to them by their local sources. They just pass the news around without bothering to confirm them.
This is my firm belief that US should win the war on terrorism as this is in the interest of whole world.
