Bombarding another country with the “Mother Of All Bombs” – Who on earth gave anyone the right to do so?

As soon as I read about the news of the so-called Super Power bombarding “once again” the territorial jurisdiction of another country, without even taking consent of the “elected government” of that very country, then these words from my other blog “A ‘qualified’ apology by Mr. Tony Blair for Iraq invasion – Was it even an apology “in real sense”?”, immediately honked in my mind – “Invading other countries to showcase the world that we are a Super Power is supposed to be the favourite pass time of some of the leaders, right?”. These words aptly fit in today’s time as well. Alas! Nothing actually changed in all these years.

First of all, let me make it very clear that I am not against any ‘legal’ Anti-Terrorism step taken in any part of the world. Do note that the stress herewith is on the word ‘legal’ and invading another country in the name of peace, without even taking the consent of the “peace loving” government of that very country, couldn’t be justified as a legal step, by any stretch. On the contrary, if the government of any country is not “peace-loving” and is actually helping terrorism to breed on its soil, then all the peace-loving countries have every right to take action, without obtaining prior permission of the ruling government of that nation, which apparently doesn’t believe in a peaceful world, but not otherwise.

In fact in my other blog “Yes, I am helping the Terrorists”, I have proposed a Joint Anti-Terrorism model and formation of a Global Special Task Force (GSTF). The prerequisite for this model is the prior permission of the Head of that respective peace-loving country, whose territorial jurisdiction the GSTF proposes to enter. This is the legal way of executing such critical missions. One can’t just decide solely on their own, and, on one fine day, proceed to bombard the land of any other nation, simply to flaunt their military power. This is seriously not acceptable and such one-sided step will never ever be able to achieve the mission of peace if that’s what their ultimate motive is, rather it will create hatred and will prompt other countries to call for a war.

Whoever is silent on United States of America’s (USA’s) recent bombarding on the land of Afghanistan, thinking that this is not against them or their nation, should note that tomorrow it could be against them or their nation as well. Do remember that if you don’t oppose any unlawful act now, then you are accepting the dominance of the countries and rulers who are intoxicated in the influence of power. So it’s my earnest request to each and every peace-loving individual and country to very strongly oppose this unjustifiable act of USA, wherein a lot many innocent civilians got killed and were forced to be a victim of someone’s arrogance.

India is a “Peace Loving” nation and also has friendly relations with Afghanistan, so without fail we should stand by the side of Afghanistan government, as well as, the innocent people residing over there. How could a nation, whose Father was a firm believer of Peace and Non-Violence, stay quiet on this illegal act of bombarding any country with the Mother of All Bombs? If any of us think that staying quiet against this act of USA will help us in building our relations strong with them, then sorry to say but we are living in a fool’s paradise. It’s a high time we take a strong stand against any kind of injustice taking place in any part of the world or else the hammer is going to hit hard on us sooner or later.

Mr. Donald Trump this common man very strongly opposes your step of bombarding a peace-loving nation without their permission. Just because you are the President of a so-called Super Power doesn’t mean that you have all the right to intrude the territorial frontiers of any other nation. In the name of peace, no one is authorized to take such steps solely on their own wish. For your kind information, Super Power is not about displaying that you can intrude any nation and bombard them without their permission.

We all should remember that there is a Supreme Soul up there, who has the real Super Power and in front of that Supreme Soul, our power is negligible. So next time even before thinking of taking such steps solely out of arrogance, keep in mind that we are just puppets in the hands of Supreme Soul and one day our arrogance could be the reason of our downfall too.

Let us all strive together to make this world a peaceful place to live in. Live and let others live peacefully too. I wish that the Almighty bless us with good sense.

God bless you all!

Stay in touch.

Being a Superpower is not about building walls against the entire world

Being a Superpower is not about attacking any country or a person. Being a Superpower is not about humiliating the respected dignities, personalities and common people of other countries. Being a Superpower is not about treating everyone else as inferior. Being a Superpower is not about carrying an ego that holds a person from apologizing for their own wrong deeds. Being a Superpower is absolutely not about building walls against the entire world.

Human Being is a social animal. We humans have to live together and breed a society that collectively develops. If any of the human beings thinks that they can live and progress all alone, keeping aside the interest of all other living beings, then sorry to say, but they are living an unrealistic dream. We can’t be so self-centred that what we care about is just our own ambitions and nothing else. Humanity is also about caring for others.

Similarly, if any nation wants to make progress solely on its own, then it is free to do so, but that is practically impossible. In this era of globalization no one can stay aloof and make progress. Each one of us is dependent on others for something or the other. If any nation dares to think that it’s a Superpower and is self-sufficient in all respect then it will be the biggest mistake of that nation. Economies of the entire world are dependent on each other. It is a cycle and hence when one is impacted the other is bound to be affected by it. We can’t take decisions in isolation, especially those which have a global impact. If still, someone tries to do that, then they should be ready to bear the consequences of the same in the long run.

No doubt it’s the right of any nation to protect their frontiers, and for that, if required, they are also free to build walls at their territorial boundaries (in consent with the neighbouring nation). However, if any leader is adamant and doesn’t consider the interests of other nations, doesn’t care about nations who are dependent on them or have friendly relations with them from centuries, while making and implementing the policies of their nation, then, in fact, they are building walls in the hearts of the entire world.

Throwing away the people from any nation or restricting entry into a nation could be a temporary boost up for that nation’s economy. But such nations should think that in this time of World Wide Web and oceans of opportunities available in every part of the world, will any country be able to restrict talented people from making their presence felt? By such acts, they will not only part away with the talents working for them but also widen the gap between nations for any future tie-ups.

Mr. President, United States of America (USA), it’s a genuine advice from a common man, that sooner the better you realize it that your attitude and steps are leading you nowhere else but to a steep downfall. By your egoistic behaviour and absurd decisions, you are harming no one else but your own country, people, party and yourself too. No doubt the entire world and their economies are going to be badly impacted by your insensitive decisions and rude behaviour, but in turn, it will surely have a larger negative effect on the USA and its economy too. Just wait and watch for the future to reveal the consequences of your steps.

Do remember that “Superpower is all about respecting every being and embracing the world with open arms”. Wish the leaders of the so-called Superpower nations would have read, understood and followed the couplet of the great saint Kabir Das Ji – “Bada hua toh kya hua jaisey pedh khajoor, panchi ko chaya nahi, phal lagey ati door” (In vain is the eminence, just like a date tree, no shade for travellers, fruit is hard to reach). I also hope that the egoistic souls have heard the famous quote of Confucius “The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.”

At last, I would like to point out that the best part of Democracy is that a government is elected only for a specific duration. However, the bad part is that some leaders could ruin the fate of the entire nation and its citizens during this period available to them. So it is up to the awaken citizens of every nation to keep a watch on all those whom they have elected to rule over them for the next term. If the citizens don’t stand against the wrong decisions of their rulers then no one else would be able to save them and their nation. At the same time, the entire world should come together and raise their voice against the absurd policies of any nation which impacts the whole world. If the entire world doesn’t register their protest against such acts now, then they will give an indication to the Superpower nations that they are willing to get oppressed by them in the near future. It’s a high time for all of us to speak against the wrong acts of any person/nation whoever it may be.

Always keep this in mind that “There is and will always be only one Superpower – the Almighty God”. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!
