Sometimes greed drives men to their own destruction, but when power is involved, they sometimes drive a whole country / region to destruction. I guess this is what is happening with two of the topmost white collar crimes being committed with the government machinery working full time for them to spread false information and implanting propaganda into minds of American public.
Today being the 7th Anniversary of 9/11 incident, an incident which not only jolted US and world alike but also brought US in reality with Terrorism as it exists and has been painfully experienced by India for so many decades.
Perhaps, it is due to its commercial and self-interest that US chose to go after the place where the terrorism emerges from; but along the way, some personal ambitions of the people at helm of things were also included, which unfortunately have been causing untold grief to nations and people across the world.
I felt as if US citizens / soldiers were blindfolded with misleading information and then sent out to the theatre of war to satisfy somebody's personal agenda. All the world knew of the WMDs and Iraq bluff, but I found it very strange that incident such as 9/11 was used as a bait to lure the innocent public away from the truth. In the midst of Presidential campaigns, prospective candidates have again tried to use this to their advantage and get mileage out of it.
It remains to be seen how the new President would evolve his strategy or would continue to toe line the path taken by his predecessors.
