On Saturday, 07 May 2011 WorldfutureTv,com then Wfol.tv wrote and editorial in which we asked the question whether the dramatic killing of Osama Bin Laden would bring peace to the world and would mean an end of the so called Islamic terrorism?
The answer today, 16 years after the event, is no.
When the news broke out, WorldfutureTv sought the confirmation, the Taliban confirmed the killing and Osama’s followers vowed revenge.
The death of the most wanted man in the recent history, we said, will change the game plan in Afghanistan and Pakistan but will it ensure an end to the U.S. war versus hardline Muslims across the world?
The Americans, jubilant and triumphant, has said the death of Osama is not the end of the conflict they themselves created against the hardline Muslims.
They insisted it is only one of the aims set by the U.S. and that other goals must be achieved before the U.S. calls it a day in the war on terror.
Many leaders of the Muslim world jumped into the bandwagon of the American success, taking a share for the U.S. killing of Osama Bin Laden.
Some even claimed the world will be a better place than ever now with Osama dead. However, they miss the point that this ‘betterment’ and the peace sought after can only be achieved by the U.S. and its people laying down their weapons against the Muslims across the world.
The U.S. want to be the leader of the globe, dominating and imposing in similar ways the old ’empires’ did.
After its assassination of Osama, the Obama administration made it clear it want to go and get the other leaders of all the anti-American groups on earth.
However, we knew this would be a monumental task, even for America to handle.
It took them 10 long years to achieve one single goal: Kill Osama. Their other goals in the war on terror, such as eliminating what they call ‘extremism’ in Islam is a lost cause while their aim at seeing Al-Qaeda and the Taliban fade away for good are but far fetched.
Time and again, it is proven the Americans have failed in the war on terror despite the billions of dollars and the thousands of soldiers they sent to Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya (Qatar helped with thousands of soldiers).
The end of the OBL era led us right into the ISIS era.
Today the Taliban still control much of the physical territory of Afghanistan and not only that, they dominate the Nato-U.S. and Western forces with their skills and their stealth IED’s.
The Americans has also failed to stop the divergent groups from the Al-Qaeda from infiltration the ‘democratic’ revolutions in the Arab lands, including Libya, Egypt, Tunia and now Syria.
It was known by almost everyone that the Al-Qaeda was behind the revolts in Yeman and were plotting more revolts in Jordan, Morocco and Algeria but these has stalled since the Americans and the West in general failed to lend support to the ‘democratic’ movements in these countries.
But as soon as the Americans opens the channels that will aid and facilitate the way for the ‘democracy’ movements in Algeria, Morocco, Jordan or even Saudi Arabia, the Al-Qaeda will be the first among all groups to descend in the streets to help oust the ‘corrupt’ regimes in place in these countries.
This shows how far the Americans has under-estimated the power of the former Al-Qaeda members who have since then joined the ISIS.
With the rise of the ISIS, we saw that the killing of the man himself did not bring an end to the war on terror, but it started new frontiers in Iraq, Syria and Turkey for example where suicide bombings were common until recently.
Now that the ISIS is facing the full brunt of the war on terror, it will dissipate in the general population of the Arab and Muslim lands but that will not be the end of it.
The question is whether the end of the ISIS reign in its self-proclaimed ‘caliphates’ in Mosul and soon Raqaa in Syria, bring peace or will it end the war on terror?
We believe the ISIS will be back, in force, and in various forms. And this can only mean there will be more wars for the anti-terror forces to fight out.
