Osama death : a hard look in mirror

Despite all the propoganda and euphoria , Many are not going to celebrate Osama’s death. Sure, Osama was a thorn in America’s side for a long time, but, like we all learned in kindergarten, don’t beleive what shows on TV.

Rather than viewing Osama’s execution as a cause for celebration, I think it would be better to treat this event as an opportunity for reflection. Who was Osama? Why did he become public enemy number one? And, how can we make the world a better, safer place in the post-Osama era?

As everyone knows, Osama became a household name when we was infamously blamed as the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks.

Osama seemed to come out of nowhere in the 1990s and, in a sense, he did. As early as the 1980s, Osama’s base of operations lay in Afghanistan. For most Americans, Afghanistan was completely off the radar screen. However, in 1979, way back before the cold war was over, the Soviets decided to invade Afghanistan.
US following his long plan to invade the world and to control the navigation on China specially, the US opposed this exercise in Soviet expansionism and made a covert, but concerted effort to undermine the Soviet invasion. Thus, it is important to emphasize that, during the 1980s, the US and Afghan soldiers groups were allies: we were both fighting for a common cause against a common enemy. Even more significantly, in prosecuting that cause, the US also allied itself with none other than…Osama bin Laden.

The degree to which the US officially trained and supported Osama remains a matter of dispute. Nevertheless, there is no question that, during the 1980s, the US and Osama both had friends and enemies in common. So, what happened? How did Osama go from being a strategic ally in the 1980s to public enemy number one?

Although very few people in the US are willing to own up to it, the truth is: the US blew it. As the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan began falling apart, the US withdrew its support and left its former allies flapping in the breeze.

After defeat of Russian by Afghan mujahideen , US decided to cut and run. To put it mildly, this really pissed the Afghans and their sympathizers off. No one likes to be treated like cannon fodder. Thus, Afghanistan rapidly transformed from a steadfast ally into a simmering cauldron of anti-Americanism. The rest is, as they say, history.

Osama is dead, but many not going to celebrate, because you don’t buy peace with murder—no matter which side of a war you may be on. If we’re going to win the war on terror, the US will never do it with bullets. But it won’t happen until we quit foisting all the blame on Osama, and take a long hard look in the mirror.

*If that sounds radicilous, then compare it to the consequences of an endless war.

License to Massacre : has it expired now ?

Khalid was sitting and begging for the food on the street with dust flows on all of his face. He was not born without legs rather he used to be a business man until 2001 . He had family of four boys and two girls who are already killed with his wife “Salma” who was a school teacher at that time.

I asked Khalid ” How did it  happen ? he looked me with tired eyes and replied what do you mean?  .

I asked How did you loose your family and how you loose your legs .  He took a deep sigh and told me that It was  a Tuesday night when we heard that US with his alies are planning to attack Afghanistan. We first realized that “Truth is on our side” as we did not engaged in any allegation they blamed on us.

I gave him water to drink and he continues, I had a nice dinner with my family without knowing that it would be my Last food with them and went onto bed.

In midnight we heared screaming, shouting and terrific bombing with glazing on sky every where and all of a sudden a Cruise missile hit on our home and i woke up like this.

I asked what happened to your family and childern , he stopped , glazed down and tears drop from his eyes .. I understood what it means..

Khalid is not the only one who has lost his family and life in last decade , rather about 10 million innocent  childern , adults, old and infants been massacred since 2001 and it is continiue as I write this text.

 

 

 

On 2nd of May 2011 , when i heared the news that Osama bin laden has been killed i asked myself, Is it now that the “US License of Massacre” has been expired ? or they will renew it with on other name.

May be I am right in my judgement as next day news media were boosting in creating fear and making stage that muslims will now take revenge of Osama’s death and West has to prepare for something similar.

Beside the fact that 9/11 was not any Muslim’s job rather was an inside drama , but now they are making people mind that  … be prepare ” They are coming “….

As a citizen of Humanity we must open our eyes and free ourselves from this type of manufacturing consent tactics ..

I hope that People are now more well informed than in 2001 but we will see how we performed our duties as human beings and stop US in repeating the history and even confirm that “US License to Massacre” is really been expired …
