@Wahab Khan Afridi: People of FATA were always very happy in gun running and gun totting, drugs and kidnappinig. Some one did create Talibans, but these terrorists were embraced by the people of FATA very proudly. They joined them in thousands as their foot soldiers. Even now they are accomodated, fed and looked after by the people of FATA or accept the fact that you have been cowed by them.
