Most Wanted – Dead

Big days, big days for Mr.President at the White House.
Osama bin laden, MOST WANTED and wanted dead at that, for over two decades.DEAD! Believable? Sure, all of us want to believe, but seriously…duudee….and moreover, killed in a swift 40 minute operation by US top secret Naval agents in somethingabad, supposedly a mere half hour’s drive from Pak’s military training institute! And coming to think of it, the Pak military officials and defense ministry and Govt in general claiming to have been clueless!!! Poppycock. Honestly, how do they manage to kill the most elusive person like ‘that’ ( you know, in the time it takes to click your fingers..) And there has been no photo, no sign of basis of confirmation of id that has been released to the public through media, but then, we all want to believe, and so no one  raises the question of an impostor or look alike. The basic human tendency to believe that which which allows us to sleep the best we can at night. However, I’m really hoping another one of his famous ‘tapes’ doesn’t surface. That’ll be a real dampener, especially on US Forces’ morale and the belief that others world round have on the aforesaid forces. And while at it, here’s wishing the world’s best agents and legitimate combat specialist forces regardless of their nationality, race or gender the best of luck in finishing off what they’ve successfully begun by two successful operations in two years, defeat of the LTTE and its leader Prabhakaran and finally being able to declare bin Laden dead. To resist another rise of the Al Qaeda and preventing a new leader from taking reign shall be a feat, and so shall the next big task of clamping down on the Taliban powers, but the best always win. Three cheers to the Best of the world 🙂  But really, while the rest of us in the comforts and safety of our homes can say ” Ha, so finally some justice for all those millions and millions of people who’ve died over the decades”, I wonder whether for those peoples’ families, there will ever really be closure.
Whether the scars that mark the visage of Irani, Iraqi, Afghani and Pakistani lives will ever fully fade, and whether there will be a generation that gets to grow up not hearing gory battle stories that their forefathers fought to secure them a free land not that they were not sovereign, but a nation free from terrorism, whose economy is free to utilize resources towards development and empowerment rather than developing new battle technology in secrecy. Raising a toast to the new world order that we all ought to hope and pray for, which I sure do, with a firm belief that it will exist someday, someday relatively soon, Amen.
( I’m not going to apologize for the hurried and substandard vocab I’ve used, ’cause I’m supposed to be really busy, but I just had to write this out…. so long..)
