Take another example. World War I has variously been described as "the total war," "a turning point in history," "the day world went mad," "the end of world." Writer Ernest Hemingway called it "the most colossal, murderous, mismanaged butchery that has ever taken place on earth."
Yet, that did not prevent World War II and 55 million souls that went with it. Nor has it prevented more than 100 million lives that have died in over 150 wars since 1914. Nor did it prevent "madness" of Sarajevo in Bosnia, or "ethnic cleansing" in Burundi and Rwanda, or "new war" on terror. Nor has it prevented 12 wars that are going on around world this very day!
So bottomline is that hanging of Saddham or Osama will never stop terrorism, nor will it make world a safer place. Another Saddham, another Osama, will rise tomorrow. The quest for "uhuru" or "kwacha," dawn, would turn out a dream, unless we address imbalances that precipitate terrorism, now. Otherwise we would wake up tomorrow and see UN building on fire. Or behold world in total darkness. Or begin to drop dead because of a mysterious plague, or worse, a nuclear bomb. (No thanks to terrorists.)
"Where were you when world stopped turning?" is lyric of a song by a musician in remembrance of collapsed Twin Towers. Dancers took to dance floors, and song went to top music chart show. That was good.
But by time terrorists actually prepare for show - down, there will be no musicians and dancers to celebrate world’s end. That would really be time when world would stop turning!
