History is going to repeat itself very soon. The people of Pakistan must be ready for another episode like that of the Abbotabad Hunting. Zawahiri is in Pakistan; assured the gracious lady Hilary Clinton talking to media in Kolkata. She further said in the same interview, "You have to go over those who are trying to kill you. You have to be focused on that." Hilary is no doubt very much true in her concept of pursuing those who are trying to kill you. Her approach in this regard must be sincerely followed by all those who are being consistently under the target of their oppressors, sometimes in the form of terrorists and sometimes in the shape of exploiters. It seems that the so-called Islamic extremists are also following the same philosophy of chase n hit as expressed by Hilary Clinton. They are always going over those who are trying to kill them. It is simply the game of cat and mouse but the positions of Tom and Jerry keep on changing. Unfortunately this game is going to end nowhere; neither the Tom nor the Jerry seems willing to give up but what about millions of those who have nothing to do with either of the two opponents. Be it the 9/11 incident or the Mumbai Blasts or the everyday showering drone attacks on blameless people of Pakistan; we find millions of guiltless lives at stake. Who is going to compensate for this wholesale massacre; world is looking towards Hilary for a satisfactory answer to this question.
Prosperity is impossible without peace; those who have sources, power and authority and who claim to posses a will to make this world a heaven on earth, will have to do a lot in quest of peace and prosperity throughout the world. Running after the enemies and making more enemies are absolutely two different phenomena. Whatever US is doing in the name of global war on terror is simply adding more to the number of its enemies. When a blind drone runs after a target, though it succeeds in hitting that target but along with that it takes lives of so many innocent children and women also. This brutality gives birth to a long row of those who are always eager to take revenge of their innocent loved ones and the names of such people are ultimately added to the long list of those who are a grave threat to the US security and survival. Things must be reviewed and revised. It is never wise to make more enemies by generating more hostility and nurturing more hatred. The story beginning from the killing of Osama is not going to end at the killing of Zawahiri. One day dear Hilary will have to admit and accept the fact and reality that killing of Osama and Zawahiri was not the solution to the problem; new Osamas and Zawahiris would replace the older ones. Efforts must not be concentrated upon the uprooting of enemies but on making more friends and taking care of the older ones.
