There are indications that the tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border may see more deaths and destruction as the media reports said that US is suspecting that Osama bin Laden and other dreaded terrorists are hiding in the areas. I do not know whether the US rulers are telling the truth or just creating justification for another war. I want to bring in your notice that more than 4000 people have been killed in the fighting in Bajaur Agency during seven months. Almost half of Bajaur Agency has been bulldozed. But now there is possibility of another round of war. I appeal to all the peace loving people to come to the rescue to the people of tribal areas. There is no denying the fact that there may some terrorists in tribal areas, but it does not mean that the people of whole tribal areas are terrorists. There may be bad guys in tribal areas, but all tribesmen are not bad people. Instead of killing them education should be provided to them.
According to media report, Taliban and al-Qaida leaders, including Osama bin Laden, are hiding in Pakistan's tribal areas, US Vice President Joe Biden has said.
"In the FATA, the western part of Pakistan in the mountains on the Afghan border, that is a war on terror. That's where al-Qaida lives. That's where bin Laden is. That's where the most radicalized part of the Taliban is," Biden told CNN in an interview.
"The situation we have as it relates to problems that exist in other parts of the world, they aren't all related to terror," he said in response to a question if the Obama administration has stopped use of the phrase "global war on terror".
Biden asserted there is a war on terror. "Terror is a legitimate threat. It is a threat that comes from al-Qaida and those organisations that have morphed off of al-Qaida, but there are other interests we have beyond merely - for example, the situation in the Middle East is not a global war on terror. But it matters to us mightily whether or not we end up with an accommodation between the Israelis and the Palestinians," he said.
The vice president said Obama administration is concerned that al-Qaida has been able to reconstitute itself under the Bush administration in the mountain regions on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan.
"Up till now there has been no targeted policy that has as its goal the elimination of that element of extremism in the world directed at the United States of America," he said.
Please raise your voice against war. Remind the present US administration that Americans have voted for peace. Now there will no more war. Please add your voice in my voice for peace as peace is in the interest of whole world.
