Our fellow citizens of the USA have rightfully been exuberantly joyful over the extermination of the bin Laden who masterminded the 9/11 massacre. I endorsed that action and the praise expressed about it. At the same time, I have thoughts thereto, to share:
1 -- This "victory" should not be regarded as a political party win; I am a Democrat, an Obama admirer, but
the praise should be regarded as the "USA team" team- effort. Yes, the team happened to be
peopled mostly by Democrats, but due credit also should be accredited to supportive Republicans and
the "Bush people" who had struggled honorably with the bin-Laden situation.
2 -- Understandably, many in Pakistan not only resent our killing of the man, but have felt their nation has
been violated by the USA military invasion to get the man. Indeed, what would be the reaction in the
USA if, say, the Canadian or Mexican or French military force were to stage a surprise attack on
Toledo, Ohio to capture or kill a man they regarded as a foe? The public opinion in the USA would
be one of rank hatred generating aspirations of vengeance toward that invading nation. So, let's be
3 -- We are concerned about the possibilities of Pakistani use of their nuclear weapons arsenal in wreaking
retribution upon the USA. And the anti-USA resentment spreads in most of the Mid-East Muslim
nations which some day also may have nuclear weapons. What, indeed, must or can the USA
do about it?
4 -- My suggestion is that the USA take advantage of what could be a Golden Opportunity. And, that is
to indicate to the peoples throughout the Mid-East that our dreams are that the USA can be an
agent for Peace, an agent for Bettering the Lot of All Peoples.
How on earth (!!) could the USA do THAT ??? Here is how: BY PROMISING TO DESTROY
ALL OF OUR NUCLEAR WEAPONS -- NUCLEAR BOMBS, NUCLEAR MISSILES, ETC.
5 -- Unheard of ? Yes !! Impossible ? Yes, at this point in time, 2011. But, theoretically and
ultimatelly possible ?? Yes, indeed -- when the time comes that the citizens of the USA
desire to help ourselves and our fellow humans throughout the world continue to exist.
6 -- So, let us all join in efforts to promote Peace, promote Respect, promote Love -- for and among
all peoples, everywhere !!! LET US INITIATE THE ACTION TO BRING EXTINCTION
TO THE EXISTENCE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONRY ANYWHERE !!!
