These are the same people who understandably, remain frightened by the true aspects of war.. so close to their door step. Yet, mistakenly view America as an instigator.
With the help of a world collective of many positive efforts, we will succeed:

"If we keep sheltering foreign terrorists here ... our future will not be good. Remember what I say," Musharraf said in the speech, which was made Saturday in the northwestern town of Sawabi. ~quote: I.H.Tribune
