Osama bin Laden is dead. US forces claimed they killed the world’s most wanted man at a mansion outside Islamabad. So, it was Pakistan where this big fish had been hiding. Any doubt…. who’s safe in Pakistan?
Well, bin Laden’s death would benefit US President Barack Obama the most, as America prepares for the presidential polls. He had authorised CIA to make the capture or killing of the “mass murderer” the topmost priority.
And just when Obama was being criticized for being just an ordinary American boy, he sprung the surprise. This catch of the al Qaeda chief is really a huge one.
Obama announced: “I can report to the American people and to the world, that the US has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden.”
But, will peace now return to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, Mr. Obama? Is terror dead, Sir? Will US withdraw its forces from these mountainous regions, Mr. President?
I remember the day when Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was hanged. The hanging was shown all over the world. And there was silence. Osama bin Laden’s death too would be received in peace. And there would be peace when we see his body too, which is in US possession.
God Bless America. Let peace prevail all over the world.
