Just found the 2010 Sherlock Series and absolutely love it, it’s so entertaining. The cast is amazing and the show is clearly well written and produced. They have successfully brought Sherlock into the 21st century with this beautiful series.
Not only was Osama unarmed when he was murdered by the jingoistic government of the United States and their overzealous troops, but he had many good, kind characteristics that many people like to overlook.
1. He was obviously loved enough by his family for one of his wives to save him.
2. He didn’t live in ultra luxury, in fact the place he lived was falling apart.
3. In his will he cautioned his sons not to follow in his footsteps.
4. He regretted not spending more time with his kids.
5. He was murdered in front of his family in the midst of likely enjoying his day.
Obviously people don’t like to see people as the grey they are, they would much prefer having only primal feelings of black and white, good and evil. To most people there is no such thing as someone who is a mix when in reality the vast majority of people don’t actually fit into such a mold.
Our current state of warfare on a global scale in the name of fighting terrorism is reminiscent of the novel 1984. In 1984 there is global conflict that never seems to end, the sides involved in the fighting make peace with one another and declare war on the one left out creating perpetual warfare. Through the guise of fighting terrorism that is the society we live in today, one where the fighting will never end because we are trying to fight an enemy that is so minuscule it is nearly impossible to find. Even when it is found it does little in the global scheme of things to end anything. It is just human nature to have dissenters and when they are given the firepower of fighting a war against one of the more jingoistic nations in the world they jump at the chance. By fighting them the West acknowledges them and through that allows their continued existence. The West’s continued fight against terrorism does little to actual stop it and one would argue it actually acts to stir the fighting up, acting as a recruiting tool for the very ones trying to be “stopped”.
