Hi Everyone. First of all, I would like to make it clear that by no means I am saying that Osama Bin Laden was a good person, nor were his deeds. I don't have any sympathy for him or his followers. But... As we all know the main cause of violence or terrorism is the thought process behind it and not the person using the gun! Osama was a product of what ever bad had happened to Gulf Countries because of the United States of America's foreign policies in 70s and 80s or even prior to that. Osama was just a capable man who had the knowledge and courage to challenge a big power that USA certainly is, but the hatred that he had for USA is shared by so many others as well and who knows, someone even better in studies, even better speaker, having even more courage may stand up against the giant tomorrow... We all know about the second world war and how big a cause Hitler was for it, but Hitler's rise to power was because of the biased division of acquired colonies after first world war. People hated USA, UK etc because of first world war's consequences and Hitler just inspired them to take revenge with his speeches. The way he did that was no doubt wrong, but that too is because of the way these people think. So do you think that the thought process, terrorists targeting USA have, is dead? Is it going to produce another Osama in future? Will USA wipe out the terrorists or the hatred? P.S. : I am certainly not the best one to say that USA have or ever had foreign policies that are curse to others, but that is what I have heard and want to discuss with all of you, with Americans, with citizen of gulf countries and everyone else as well. I apologize in advance if my comments are not fair. They are just to be discussed and not to be taken as statement. Correct me if I am wrong in anything. Regards to all.
