August 6 can’t be forgotten. It was on this day that US of A gave birth to organized terrorism (doesn`t terrorism actually mean creating terror?) by dropping an atom bomb called ‘Little Boy` on Hiroshima. History tells us that they dropped another on August 9, and that too after knowing fully well that more than 120,000 (mostly civilians) had died because of the ‘Little Boy`.
The Americans had a sense of humor after all – naming the atom bomb “Little Boy.` Perhaps they did so because it could destroy only the city of Hiroshima and not the whole of Japan.
That day…World lost its innocence.
The picture above is a real watch found in Hiroshima after the atom bomb was dropped. The watch had stopped working the moment the atom bomb went off.
Before we lighten up the mood you can try this amazingly funny terrorist video. Takes some time to download. but is worth the wait.
In the last 60 years (to the day) terrorism has spread far beyond the shores of US of A. Now, one needn`t be an American to create terror in the minds of innocent people. You can be a Pakistani…an Israeli…a Russian…a Bulgarian…or a British…
With the entry of the small players…the professional terrorist has lost his glory. But that has not dampened the spirit of the Entry Level Petite Terrorist who join the terrorist organization voluntarily. In case you have not realized it yet, IT companies have copied the ELTP lingo. Aren`t freshers known as ELTPs…meaning Entry Level Project Trainees.
Talk of being inspired. While at inspiration level…these young terrorists who join the band wagon are so excited at the prospect that they are ready to join Jihad (whatever holy war) even if it means pushing the tanks from behind. But this voluntary act by the ELTPs exposes the terrorists because once you shoot the ELTPs the tanks stop moving.
The terrorists still use these broken tanks because they don`t want to use cars. You are probably surprised why the modern day terrorists don`t use the car. Perhaps it has something to do with that fateful day in 1992 when Osama tried to blow up a car but burnt his lips on the car exhaust. Don`t ask me why Osama could not blow up the car. My guess is… he did not pay enough attention when the professor of the ‘Suicide Bombing` class gave the live demo. In fact, the professor had mentioned that it was a once-in-a-life-time class…before pressing the red button that blew him to pieces.
It is never easy to blow oneself up. I tried to do that once, but the hydrogen the balloon-wala gave me was adulterated.
Unlike me, many of these youngsters who have joined terrorist groups are able to blow themselves up. So much so…parents have stopped saying: “Kids….they grow up so fast!” and instead are saying: “Kids….they blow up so fast!”
Sometimes…I wonder what is the difference between a “Uncle SAM wants you!” and a “Uncle oSAMa wants you!”
They all sound the same to me.
