How terrorists get arsenal to cause havoc across the globe and how to stop these supplies first should be the focused line of action if at all the nations are serious to put final end on terrorism. War against terrorism is mere an illusion unless such supplies are not stopped. The terrorists and the nations sending army or air attacks on the terrorist camps would only mean benefits to the arm manufacturers, dealers, smugglers and funding agencies.
Terrorism has become a global problem, a sever threat to the humanity. Today Islam is blamed for all the incidents of the terrorism, Taliban is now replaced by ISIS…tomorrow some other organization will replace it. But chain of the terrorist activities won’t come to ultimate halt.
Paris attack made global headlines causing agony and fury across the globe. But Boko Haram remains mostly un-discussed as they are causing havoc in “less civilized” countries. Actually, in 2015, every day world in some or other part of the world experienced ambush, bombings, kidnappings, inhuman killings and suicide attacks. After Paris incident world seemed suddenly awakened and has declared war against terrorism, especially ISIS.
ISIS is using mostly American origin arms, from automatic rifles to Rocket launchers. It is said that they have acquired those weapons from the Syrian-Iraqi army men, Saudi Arabia and China. There is well established chain of the supplies and its distribution. Britain is said to been arming Kurdish people to fight against ISIS. Getting hold of weapons by stealing is a myth. What about ceaseless supply of ammunition? They must be smuggled in. How Maoists of India get hold of arms and ammunition? It is well known fact that from China via North-Eastern states they are smuggled and distributed amongst Maoists. The facts and figures shows that India lost double the people so far than the people, including soldiers, died in Maoist attacks. US have been supplying arms in Iraq with a futile hope that they will be used against ISIS. Rather it has become a major source for ISIS to get modern weaponry.
Having fundamentalism (Muslim, Maoist or any other for that matter) major reason behind any act of the terrorism is the thing that does have ancient traits. The problem with us is, to fight out terrorism and stop killings of the innocents, the priority should have been to stop supply of the armaments to any such country/region, even for the lame reason that such people will fight out terrorist groups! For example US supplied arms to Iraqi army to wage war against ISIS. It is doubted that the some part of those arms, intended for Iraqi army reached in hands of ISIS. This is superficial truth. America (and its friends) and Russia have been arming the terrorist groups alternatively. Russian war against ISIS and now France and allies participating it a great joke on humanity.
The lobby of arm manufacturers is strong in US. Russia too possesses equal ability to produce arms. China too is in the race to increase supplies wherever possible. They use all means, even smuggling them, to the destination wherever possible trouble erupts.
Under the circumstances I would like to say that the war against terrorism is a lie. Warlords don’t wish at all that the terrorism should be eliminated from the face of the earth. Rather they are grooming the terrorists of the future by killing terrorists of the present!
Blaming Islam for all terrorism is okay. May be tenets of Quran are responsible for it. But then which religious book is devoid of these terrorist elements? Gita too specifically is aimed to wage war against Adharma…killing of human beings is necessary to establish Dharma…says Krishna ultimately! Now there is no clear definition of what Dharma or Adharma is! But Hindu’s don’t go on killing people in mass proportion, though there religion allows it! The only reason is Hindu’s have no easy access to the weapons. Or else they too could have waged bloody war against Muslims as RSS have been preaching since its inception!
What we need is, if at all we, the global citizens, are serious to have freedom to live and let live, if at all we are serious to end terrorism, first of all the arm supplies has to be banned to the people/groups or nations those are up to cause disruption of global peace.
I mean that the arm manufacturers and their supply chains must be kept under constant surveillance and should be punished heavily if at all they are found to be guilty in supply to wrong people. The nations too, those support terrorism, should be banned of any trade with them. Let them suffer in isolation.
And, under disguise of Superpower, global policing of any nation too is needed to be stopped at first priority. Superpower means an ability to enslave others, politically or economically. The world nations should be well aware of the risks in wooing so-called economic, political and nuclear powers.
If terrorist get easy hold of modern weaponry the day is not far away that they get hold of nuclear weapons too! Fanatics are ready to die as they are suicidal and what even if whole globe is destroyed after them? The risk is heavy….not at all affordable to human being and other species.
To me, war against terrorism can only be fought and ended with fruitful results only if the supply of the arms and ammunition is curbed with global consensus and the smugglers are set to heavy punishments.
This is not impossible if the world is really up to fight out terrorism. If not….ISIS will never end….it would produce another hundreds from their blood!
Blood of the humanity will be spilled forever and the dream of ultimate freedom of humanity will never come true.
We have to make the choice…!
