Hi all

Would love to receive your comments and feedback on this new blog, just posted on the Huffington Post:

 

Citizen's log 09/11/11


As the search for General Terror continues, Citizens begin to question the decision to wage war against him ten years ago.

 

Victory, like General Terror, is nowhere to be seen. According to a Gallup poll, Americans' views today on who is winning the war are the same as they were in October 2001.

 

Major Confusion, a key member of General Terror's senior command, is largely blamed for the setbacks. From the crackdown on the Uighurs in China, to the controversial anti-terror legislation in the UK and the US, Major Confusion continues to blur the battle-lines of the War on Terror.

In the real world,  war and fight to eliminate bad evil always continues. Don't take dreams after making decisions to make gobal war, terrorism or similar types are gone quickly . It is a long-time struggle and needed excellent endurance.. If somebody feel exhausted or confuse why after probably long run tries and actions , really results not appear. Please, we must remember to victims  We must re-energized themselves, we do ,we act because we have  humanity sense, human-being. We will not surrender to anything related to perils and terrors. Remember  "balance of power" concept.

Hi Simon, a great piece. Thanks. I enjoyed its critical and creative mixture.

 

Jerry, consider that extra-judicial killings and invasions leading to mass destruction of countries and people, make the world less safe! We need better responses to the tragedy of 9/11.

In September, 2001, our world changed in its entirity; be it social, political, financial or culture. For this reason, one thing I know is that post 9/11 world will never be like pre 9/11 world. From Afghanistan to Iraq from Pakistan to Yemen  from Jordan to Nigeria and elsewhere, the "War on Terror," the famous language of George W. Bush is beig fought against. Major and leading architects of Terrorism have been killed  in groups like Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab and the more than 45 foreign terrorist organizations as seeing on the US State Department Website: http://www.state.gov/s/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm. With the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq in June 2006, few others and recently, bin Laden, the brain of Al-Qaeda, I think we are heading somewhere. What I can say is that the "War on Terror" is a long war and must be effective. The world must do more to win this war. Winning the "War on Terror" is imperative because as even Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and bin-Laden are killed, their offsprings may be resurrecting somewhere. But I think the world is heading somewhere. The cash must be spent to inprove the lives of young people whether in the Arab world or even in the West. Because as poverty hits the youthful populations, they are quick to be radicalized.

If we do not lean to decipher between symptoms  and causes te confusion between error and terror will continue....

--The 3 'P'S : Power -Patriarchy and Poverty need o be ecahnges with an more "open" Alphabet such as : Trust, Respect, Equality, dignity .. as more and more alphabets  to replace thee 'P'"s  .. I do ot mean to be funny jusr to offer critical thinking towards developing a new culture.
