So they say Osama Bin Laden is dead. The cat-and-mouse chase that stretched almost a decade has finally come to an end; and the United States of America have proven to mankind (yet again) that the end justified their questionable means.
A lot has been said about the September-11 attacks.
A lot has been said about Al-Qaeda.
And a lot is being said about the great American victory.
As for me - I could not care less; Osama Bin Laden may have been a fierce terrorist, responsible for the present upheaval in several parts of the world, but eliminating him does not make this world much of a safer place.
There are still countless thieves, murderers, rapists, kidnappers and smugglers out there waiting their turn. They claim to have put one down today. How many will rise tomorrow?
How many innocent lives will be sacrificed, next?
So rejoice not the loss of that one foul soul - not yet - instead, fret over how many more dreaded to go before there is peace.
Perhaps, another seven billion...
