Save Life...

Why? Can I ask why? Why is a life the most cheap thing available today? You want to take a life, no problem just send people of to war.

Iraq /Afghanistan War: Planning a war might be really hard, the strategy, the point of attack but estimate of loss of life is so simple...You loose some.... WHY? What are you expecting to take your army into another country to create democracy?

I just fail to understand, each day we hear and read how many people are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am NOT pointing out that Bush and America is doing right or wrong but just pointing out...Iraqis are dying, Americans are dying....is there some one who cares? 1 American soldier dies and there news all over the world, there are 1 minute silences and etc.

Each day there are at least 20 or more people dying in Iraq and Afghanistan, are they not humans, do they not have the SAME right to live like us. Consider one of your family members dying and imagine the amount of people effected by that one loss of life....now imagine how many people are affected each day when so many people die.

I think of loosing a family member and just cannot even imagine how miserable my life would become, then I think of all these people dying each day and that scares me so much. Does the world not care anymore? Is everyone just concerned about their own circle?

The world wont last for long if we just keep on thinking of ourselves and our close ones. Its like blood (you cannot reproduce it artificially even after all the technological advances) and its because of people donating it that its available to others...

Think people...a life is a life, its the SAME life you and me are living and its being lost somewhere else for what? For democracy, for Osama or for Oil?

Life is life, and freedom is not a requirement its a RIGHT that everyone has!

I am glad at least someone is trying to take a step to make people realize what is happening, in the other parts of world. Yes its true that today’s man is just running behind the material things which can make their own life comfortable and not thinking of other people who’s life is becoming miserable day by day, probably because of are negligence.

Adeel, I agree completely to what you have just said but I will also like to highlight the role of media which is not showing the exact picture to the world. Taking your point ahead if one American dies the media will project it for many days but they are not bothered to show the loss of life of the indigenous Iraqi or Afghani people. It’s sad, that the media is also not being neutral and trying to justify what might not be the exact truth.

Another thing that I wanted to mention is that why is this entire massacre going on around the world today. Is this because of a religion, a person, a personal grudge or for some other material benefits that are more important than the human life.

The point that I want to make over here is that people should not just feel for the loss of blood of other people, but also try to dig the hidden truth about all these sad incidents that are affecting the today’s world, and making it miserable for the generations to come.
