Indecisive Nations

Operation Odysessy marks another chapter in the "Allies" quest to bring order to the World.They waited for half a month while Gaddafi bombed and shot his own people before getting the No Fly Zone in place and then the air jocks of the US/UK and France decided for some target practise of their own.

Does "Enduring Freedom" and "New Dawn" ring any bells?Those are names of American intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq,whoever selected the names must have done so with much irony.It goes far back to Mobutu Sese Seko of Congo,Siad Barre,Jean Bedel Bokassa and more recently Larent Kabila .They have made merry while the World's one Superpower sat on its haunches or sided with them in their many massacres.

We talk of an economic order yet it takes so much time to see to the HMQ(Human Misery Quotient) and its present in almost all countries of the world.Are we still afraid to face our own people?Too late for the Mubaraks to ponder but it raises the question of how quick our response will be in future.

In my earlier blogs I had talked of Nostradamus and The Tower of Babel,I read and see it everyday and too some extent we are already robots,being fed propaganda through newsprint,television and visual media.

I am sad to see  doctors  sell health drinks,dentists selling toothbrushes,preserved food being shown as more nutritious.The Nations are exerting an affect on its citizenry and more and more local area conflicts will arise in the years to come.A CNN or Fox news will need to cover every neighbourhood as a unique zone in itself.
Life already complicated,is destined for more unimaginable twists...

A poet called Iqbal,who wrote the Indian theme,"Sare Jahan Se Acha,Hindusthan hamara",but later migrated when India was partitioned to Pakistan and who lived as a revolutionary poet in Paris once wrote,"...Jis khet se dehka ko mayasar nahi rozi,uss khet ke har khosha-e-gandum ko jalado,utho meri duniya ke garibo ko jaga do".
Loosely translated in english it means,"rise up poor farmers of the world,if your land/grain cannot provide you enough to eat then burn down that land/grain till the last particle".
Have the Nations forgotten
