It is very likely this little piece is going stir some people up, but so be it…
I’ll be honest, I don’t know exactly why bin Laden and a percentage of Muslims around the world hate America and her alies so much. But with what I’m about to put forward, it really doesn’t matter. The way I see it, bin Laden decided to play God, to take the lives of innocents to further his cause. The resulting chain reaction has seen America and various other nations launch counter-terrorism strikes centered on Afghanistan (for obvious reasons), and Muslims around the world rising up in protest and calling a Jihad, as they feel America simply wants to rid the world of everything Islamic.
Well, if the Muslims are going to be so short-sighted (I expect they’re just looking for an excuse to wage war against the West), and want to call a Jihad, then be my guest. Let the Muslims fight the military might of the West. I just hope for their sakes that their God is smiling on them when they start this war, or better yet, I hope their God is laughing his @rse off. Personally, I feel that the world needs less of these violent and unthinking people who feel mindless slaughter is the key to solving their problems.
As for bin Laden… Well if it comes to a Jihad and he still continues his terror campaign, then I think a little of his own medicine is in order. It is doubtful that this concept would be backed by any Western governments, but I propose that the people of the Western world form their own underground terrorist/anti-terorrist organisation.
Now don’t discount this straight away, just listen…
If bin Laden's got a grudge and decides to show it by killing my friends and fellow Westerners, and innocents at that, then perhaps it's time we gave him a first hand experience of just what these tactics are like. An eye for an eye. It wouldn't be funded by the governments or the military, it would be funded by the people. Who in the civilised Western world (and many other nations for that matter) wouldn't give a little to aid in these specific type of counter terrorism operations. The people would fund it and the people would fund it well.
bin Laden now thinks sending Anthrax around the planet is effective - wait until we taint the water supplies of HIS people with hideous, man-made viral concoctions - wait until we taint the herds of livestock of HIS people with diseases that make mad-cow/foot-and-mouth look like the common cold - wait until the crops of HIS people are laced with lethal poisons that’re only discovered once the crop has been widely distributed and its effects seen - wait until wthe few computer systems HIS people have are hacked into and rendered useless - wait until various, vital infrastructure systems of HIS people are sabotaged… and it goes on and on. Can he compete - yes. To a degree, but he will not win.
And all those that declare a Jihad are also targets. These efforts would not be aimed solely at bin Laden. Let HIS people feel the impact that HIS tactics can impart on a nation. Sure, innocents would perish, but amongst all the innocents are assuredly those that harbour thoughts of taking up where bin Laden left off. They must perish also. Whether innocent or not, these people MUST learn that what they or their people unjustifyably dish out, they will receive back ten fold from those who have needlessly suffered.
I have no doubt that the terror we could bring upon bin Laden and HIS people would leave his efforts far behind. As horrible as this concept is, it may just be what is needed, not only to truly open his eyes to what he and HIS people have started (and hopefully scare them into submission, better yet exterminate bin Laden himself), but also to bring a sense of morbid, yet needed, satisfaction to Western people.
Just a thought.
