So, Osama bin Laden has been killed (or so at least they say so.) After causing havoc in the world for over 15 years, the big man has been killed. All thanks to Obama and his military force. Now the question, that arises in my mind with a couple of others(if only you are smart enough to think that.), is whether, it really was Osama bin Laden who had been killed. No specific videos, footage or even any report to facilitate the announcements. It is also weird to see how people are celebrating someone's death, whosoever's it maybe. One might read this little piece of news and rejoice over the fact, that one of the greatest masterminds in the history of world terror has been killed and that this may finally bring little if not total safety from any terrorist attacks. Even if we do believe that OBL has bin killed killed (or assassinated as some people may prefer), it is only jeopardizing our future even more.
The fact that perhaps the supposed (why i say "supposed" i shall explain later.) leader of world terror has been killed, might just lead to a chain of brutal killings and mass murder (so best of luck America saving the world from that :] ). The always enraged, jihad fanatics shall now only boil upto a 1000 degrees centigrade and carry out "revenge" killings which would only facilitate further more and more "jihadi" propagandas. And as a reaction to this the world might just all over again plunge into islamophobia, and we shall land all over again to square one... into an era or riots. Though i don't mean we should not have killed him, but rejoicing over it is pointless. The world is not short of terrorist of any kind whatsoever.
Now here is a fun fact, The US of A has spent over $1.3 trillion over the last decade in its attempt to capture this one man. (Now thats a grand way of dying!!). Now $1.3 trillion is more than you think it is... An african nation finds it hard to earn so much an amount in 15 years. And this amount only includes expenditure from USA. Accounting how much the world has spent might just go into a number where the world population might run out of fingers. Include in it the amount of possible black money used. So much money spent over one man over last 10 years!! and we wonder why recession? There is your reason folks. A little of this money if not all of it,(considering the importance of this matter.) could have been used to built a couple of hospitals, schools and other such facilities to benefit people in areas where people still starve for food and crave for water. One third of the world is dying of poverty, another 1/3 struggling to make its end meet. Of the remaining only 20% could be said to be in absolute comfort while the others have economical problems. And we have $1.3 TRILLION spent on this one man. USA calls this, its greatest achievement in world history. Killing one man. What about the millions it has already taken. None of those innocent lives have been compensated.
Now coming to a very controversial topic. Who says Osama bin Laden is a terrorist or at least the leader of main terrorist groups???. However I might want to believe the fact, the problem is that there is no real proof to substantiate this argument . It is only USA's assertion that has played an important role in making the world believe this. What if he is only a Hench man and the main guy is still there somewhere. No one till date has been able to give a solid proof of him being the main stream propagator.
The USA believes it is there greatest achievement... spending 1.3 trillion dollars to kill one man. The funny part? The various techniques used to accomplish this, and how they have still failed. Bill Clinton fired 10 missiles without setting a proper target on the hills in afghanistan because it was believed that Al-Quaida camps were setup there. Just random free firing. George bush's statement in 2006 when asked why USA was unable to get hold of OBL was- "we can't catch him because he is hiding". This shows how helpless they have been. SO has everybody. Even this time a highly specialized squad was prepared to capture OBL. They trained for one month and were able to capture Osama. However Osama was bed ridden at this point of time. On Dialysis. Without a working kidney. Now is that an achievement? Really obama who are we kidding? I do not say i am not happy that he is dead (if he is that is.) All i want to say is that it is nothing to rejoice this only shows how lame USA polity has been in this matter. We rejoice at one big terrorist being killed, and call it an achievement.. but really who are we kidding??
