Ten Long Years

Ten Long Years, are ten years really long enough? Because I can visibly remember the day, I was a school going boy then and during the morning assembly the guy who was reading the news, read that World Trade Center has been attacked by terrorists and thousands of people have been killed. So, its exactly 10 years ago, the infamous 9/11 (September 11) happened that shook the world and the US as a whole and made many of us feel insecure with our lives. And then reactions and counter reactions started, Talibans were attacked by the US as they were the master mind behind the WTC attack under their infamous leader Osama Bin Laden. The most important thing is that this one attack was enough for the US to secure their country. They brought about strict security policies, punished the offenders and then we saw war in Iraq. Though there is high amount of doubt if the attack on Saddam Hussein was related to terror or there were some other business interests that were getting suffered. The whole Oil Diplomacy needs to be taken into picture.

But whatever be the case, US was able to avert and prevent any such attack after that. And now India comes into picture which has been a sufferer of terror for a much longer duration and which is being harboured by its neighbouring countries. But what India could not do is Indian governments were not able learn from their mistakes or rather learn from US, though in other aspects they are quite good at following and appeasing the US regime. Til now, we could not have a proper security and intelligence system established that could deal with terrorism. Every now and then we are failing and after every such attacks we hear the government say, 'The culprits won't be let off'. But after few days, everyone forgets about such and we are back to square zero. Almost all the major cities and commercial hubs have been attacked by the terrorists, thus they making it clear to all on how their acts going to continue.

So, my basic question is:
IF US AND OTHER COUNTRIES CAN, WHY CAN'T WE???

ah well! there are many theories to 9/11. some even say it was orchestrated, otherwise such a security lapse in usa is not possible. given the reputation and hunger for petrol you never know. but again, the economical loss was certainly huge because of 9/11 but what people don't know, in usa the annual murders/deaths caused by personal weapons is way more than casualties in 9/11.

as far as india's reaction to terrorism goes, am not very happy with that either but i doubt war with pakistan will resolve it. if we did that usa will be first one to support pak.

its all power game.

Because we debate terror and not act on it...also there is no consensus. The 2 main opp parties are bust settling personal scores .
