9/11/2001. The day Osama Bin Laden commanded his followers to take over 4 planes and kill thousands of people in the greatest terror incident that ever happened. He had one failure: Flight 93 did not go quietly to their deaths. The passengers rose up against the attackers. The attackers themselves decided to prevent capture and crashed the plane into a field in Shanksville, PA. Not so much of a glorious death for themselves. The Muslim and Arab community cheered when the towers fell. Not one word of prayer or apology was given.
Since 9/11 all of the attackers have been fighting with the passengers in hades ever since and they know they are hurting forever since the day Bin Laden lied to them.
Since 2001, USA began the mission (war) on hunting for Osama Bin Laden (OBL). We went after him and looking for him in Afghanistan. Apparently, Saddam Hussen decided to make noise to try to divert the USA away from OBL. It worked too well. Saddam realized that USA came to his country. He lived on borrowed time until he tried to escape. He was caught, made to talk, judged, found guility, and executed. We may have gotten Saddam, but lost the war in Iraq and left Iraq since then. I really wonder if Saddam is ever happy in hades? He's got his own fight with his people that he gassed.
Our nation focused back on Afghanistan, looking for OBL. It was also suspected that OBL was hiding out in Pakistan. We kept looking and hope that we would find OBL.
As more than a week ago now, USA's intelligence was right on the money. Finally on 5/01/2011 Osama Bin Laden was killed on the same day Adolf Hitler was killed in 1945. Karma hits back in a strange way. The nation of USA cheered that Osama Bin Laden is dead. The Muslim and Arab community got angry. Turnabout is fair.
Now, it's become a problem. More questions than answers of why OBL was hiding right in plain sight in Pakistan. Was OBL helped in Pakistan? Yes. Perhaps funded with the money our USA gave Pakistan in the war against terrorism.
Since then, OBL is now dead. Pakistan is in the middle of a night mare of diplomatic relationships in which they have to do a lot of explaining why OBL turned up dead in their country. They knew this day would come. They knew at any time a strike team would go and get OBL. It happened.
As it stands now, it's USA vs Pakistan. It's an argument of which nobody is going to win. OBL knew that when his death would happen, he would set in motion more attack and plans. He also knew countries would be at each other's throats over his death.
But one thing he did NOT plan on. He expected to die and be buried on earth. Oh he was buried all right. BURIED in the belly of the fishes in the deepest part of the ocean floor!
Maybe it was a fitting end for OBL. Justice, yes.
Some say OBL should have been caught and brought back to USA for punishment by the legal system. But that would have been a logistical nightmare everyone involved. Some are saying that it was a better justification to shoot him dead rather than bringing him in for justice. Who knows?
Now our world enters the post-Osama Bin Laden days. The question is this: will the surviving terror groups call it quits and walk away? With out a leader and fully knowing our military and intelligence groups are ready to go out and get them, they should walk away from terror.
My message today is this: In terrorism, nobody wins. People engaged in terror should lay down their arms, forget their orders, and walk home. Go back to your country, your life, and your family. Breath the air and live.
Things may not be better since the world has changed. Thanks to OBL. Before 9/11/01, we were a happy world.
Since then, we changed. Now since 05/01/11 we have changed again.
What happens on 09/11/11? Nothing save the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01. It will be the national prayer day for those that suffered in the attacks. Perhaps then, things will change for a little more freedom and trust. Maybe the world will go back to being a place it once was before 09/11/01.
Sadly, it may not happen at all. All that counts is that we live. Nobody wins.
For Osama Bin Laden and Hitler? Their victims will keep on fighting them until the day of the Great White Throne Judgement in which they'll all be cast into the Lake of Fire. That's the awful second death.
till next post, I'll clue you in. Hopefully by then Pakistan will learn their lessons.
