I am from a country (Sri Lanka)where terrorism is an everyday occurance. Like in Iraq, we measure the maganitute of an attack by the "no. of casualties". If its just a couple pf people dead, then no one bothers much. If its more than 10, then may be get a bit interested……..
Then again , if its in the North or East no reponse at all. If its in the Capital Clombo, then people get jolted because it effects their lives.
Just the other day, my daughter was just a few cars behind a bomb blast! Even then, she didn’t call us, until I called her to find out if she was ok!! Human life has no value here, just one in a mass population.
Only the Polititicians in the Government are considered important. If one of them are even scratched in the finger, there will be much publicity and they will be further protected and more added to the already existing security.
In addtition to it, they live in super luxory. and traffic is halted for them to get about. Where as we people have to cope with hight cost of fuel and soaring cost of living..
Now who pays these Politicians? we the tax pauers do.
Who appointed them.? Majority of the People
Who has the right to stop them? We the people.
Do we do anything about it? Of couse not. Or we will be put in prison or hyjacked!
Then what can we do? Just brood and wait and ask God to have Mercy on us!!!!!
Does this happen in your country as well? Any suggestions to what we can do?
