Peace is more than just killing and silencing the guns, it is elimination of the injustice that has compelled the men to reach for guns to defend their honour, respect, culture and above all their liberty. The concurrent global war on terror is based on lies and deceptions so cleverly fabricated by the CIA to identify and eliminate all the people who believe in self-defence. Bush launched his Armageddon after 9/11 and declared an all out war on Afghanistan in October 2001 for its failure to apprehend and surrender Bin-Laden to Washington. It became a mantra for Bush to use Bin-Laden's name whenever he was in a crisis situation; and in every self-created-crisis, he always was the beneficiary. The question, is Osama bin-Laden still alive? In his New book, "Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive" David Ray Griffin examines the whole range of evidence bearing on this question. Griffin strikes at the root of this pretext for war by closely probing all the evidence that has come out since 9/11, either indicating that Bin-Laden was still alive or that he was in fact dead. His conclusion is that Bin-Laden is certainly dead, and that in all likelihood he died in very late 2001. Griffin shows that many US experts in counterterrorism and counterinsurgency came to this very conclusion long ago, but their views, which do not support the continuation of what President Obama, borrowing the term from Dick Cheney, calls "the long war," have received very little media attention. Were they to do so, one of the main props for the war regime would have been undermined. Griffin has surveyed in detail the many different indications published in the media in early 2002 that Bin-Laden had been very ill and had died. These included a December, 2001 video in which he appeared to be at death's door (as admitted by a Bush administration spokesman), analyses by medical experts of the grave state of his health, the sudden and total cessation in December 2001 of any surveillance intercepts of communication from him, and even some reports of his funeral. The two fake bin-Laden videos in 2001, purportedly showed him taking credit for the 9/11 attacks, were not only very conveniently timed for Bush/Blair administrations' legislative and military agendas, but were also highly suspected for other reasons. One of them was never actually released, but simply claimed by Blair government. The second showed a bin-Laden, who did not physically resemble the genuine Bin-laden of earlier videos, in which he had denied any role in the 9/11 carnage. Writer Griffin presents strong arguments that both the videos were fake and cites likely motivations behind such a risky undertaking and quotes the opinions of experts (including the FBI), who came to this conclusion long ago. Yet, in subsequent years, a long series of such dubious bin-Laden messages were released. Griffin gives an exhaustive survey of 19 of these from an e-mail message of March, 2002 to the bin-Laden audiotape of January 14, 2009. For each and every one, he identifies key indications of fakery or strong reasons to be suspicious of its authenticity. For there to be peace in the midst of a war engineered by Bush junta, the cold penetrating light of reality must emasculate the acceptable lies agreed to in secret back-room meetings that allowed sheer gangsterism and extortion from weaker adversaries to masquerade as "diplomacy and negotiations." The incessant lies emanating from the White House, the Pentagon and especially from the CIA have to be silenced, if the global war on terror, based on lies is to be turned into world peace. The question; "Who could have been motivated to fabricate such "big lies?" The US forces in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq employed a psychological operations unit to produce bogus evidence of a link between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda as a pretext for the invasion. The "Psyop Unit" produced a letter from a Jordanian in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi to Al-Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan that was supposedly intercepted en-route. The psyop was advanced after the invasion by the New York Times reporter Dexter Filkins, who wrote front-page stories that the evidence was genuine. Journalists at other organisations, including Newsweek magazine and the Daily Telegraph of London, however, thought the letter was bogus. Almost, a similar situation prevails on the Pakistani side of the Durand Line. History stands a witness that it is not possible to subjugate these warrior tribes with the force of arms. The danger to Pakistan is not of a Taliban revolution, but rather of creeping destabilisation and terrorism, which the Zardari government with all the US help and military support has miserably failed to control. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn says, "You can only have power over people so long as you do not take everything away from them. But, when you have robbed a man of everything, he is no longer in your power." The only lasting solution is that we ourselves should gradually find way to an internal equilibrium without depending upon American help or interference. The object of the government is not the glory of the rulers, but the happiness of common man.
