    A new kind of normalcy is taking root in North Waziristan. After years of being at the mercy of terrorist groups, the local people are finally free to build a new and better life. The rapid change in this once ‘no-go’ area is impressive.

    What’s happening in North Waziristan is too extensive to do justice to in one article. This perspective will be the first of three in a series to provide insights into this, until now, rarely visited area. Driving from Bannu through Mir Ali into Miranshah on new roads, through valleys scattered with date palms, and surrounded by the extraordinary rugged beauty of the hills and mountains, is exhilarating. Arrival in Miranshah and touring around brings many surprises about this spectacular and intriguing region.

    Miranshah today would be unrecognizable to those who served there in earlier times. The market is bustling and a new shopping centre is under construction by a private investor. A modern bus terminal that will be a comfortable starting place for journeys to other cities like Lahore is also about to begin construction.

    "No power on earth can undo pakistan"

    I used to take it just as a qoute but the events of the past 6-7 yrs have made me into a staunch believer of what jinnah said.

    May those who harbour ill-intent towards my blessed land drown in their own blood.

    So the 'agent' is reporting to the masters and the world think tanks with disappointment that your first plan to transform Pakistan into the present day Iraq and Syria failed, and you should make another plan to get the 'Islamic Bomb'.

    It's funny that they are 'more interested' in Waziristan than Pakistani journalists or intellectuals are. Disaster management my foot!

    The Satanists first bring 'disaster' to poor and weak people and then send their disaster management team and become hero.
