May 1, 2011Â the world’s most recent public enemy, Osama Bin Laden was pronounced dead by the US government.
Alot of people rejoice…the announcement is everywhere. On Facebook, Twitter, blogs, various media… people are rejoicing for the ultimate revenge against terrorism. They rejoiced because they think that justice has been served.
But then again, how can people actually think that justice has been served? Are you honestly that shallow?
His death does not change the fact that the world still lives in terror and is still plagued with many humanitarian issues. Yes. Osama and the Talibans are terrorist, but path that US took was evil too, for while they called for peace, they have done it with weapons in hand. How can you call that peace and justice? How can you rejoice at one man’s death when the fact is that his death changed nothing?
How can you say that with his death, justice is being served and the world would be a better place and a more peaceful place to live? His death does not bring back peace. His death does not bring the innocents back to life, and with his death, the world still have to live in terror of counter-attack by his followers? How can you say with his death, there’s justice, there’s closure, and there’s freedom and peace when the truth is there is none?
How can peace be justified by holding weapons and shooting at each other? How can one takes the life of others for vengeance and then someones gets revenge by taking his life. How is that kind of twisted thinking going to bring us peace, I wonder, for the cycle will go on and one and will never stop.
If you should kill someone’s husband in battle, then his wife will despise you for that. And if you were to kill someone’s son, then his mother will hate you for that as well. Is this not the truth of it all?
The chain…it would be unbreakable. It’s the chain of murder, or destruction, not of peace or justice or even freedom.
What actually happens in a war is that everyone has some kind of reason, but in truth, no one actually does. Ponder that.
You may say whatever you want regarding Osama’s death. But to me, his death doesn’t change the fact that the ones who had succumb in war is not exactly terrorists themselves, but the civilians.
Will the world be a more peaceful place with his death? No. His death changed nothing.
Osama Bin Laden was not the number 1 public enemy. We are our own public enemy for we allowed ourselves to hold weapons and shoot at each other each time we failed to come to an agreement. We are our own public enemy because we allowed such monstrosity to spread.
