It's Americans Challenge

Reader comment on item: Obama vs. McCain on the Middle East

Submitted by kamekish (India), Jun 9, 2008 at 02:08

Obama is coming like a wave. He is sweeping the whole of America from one end to the other. He is making a wave. He is talking about the change Americans have got so used to. He is talking about the prosperity, development and peace, Americans are so impatient to achieve even now.

But the main question in front of all Americans is - Will Obama be a right man?

As with all open wound and sore which infects human body, it will infect human mind if not healed in time. Before we sit on the chair of decision-making, we have to ensure that we are cured. Who will do and when? It is a challenge for Americans.

But I firmly believe that Obama or McCain both should come with cured mind to be the President of USA.

As far as Muslim terrorisms are concerned, as an awaken Indian, I can say with authority, it is just a law and order problem not an emotional or regional national issue. Even if we resolve Israeli-Palestinians issue or even Kashmir issue, only dreamer on earth will believe that, peace will prevail. War will continue. Human beings are very every prone to war. They want war. War is in their blood. They will do it in some or other pretext.

I have my own beliefs that whoever wins presidency in Nov, Americans will have tough time to resolve these burning issue. I know that this is the moment to heal this earth. I know that this is the moment to cure the huge population of earth. And I know and firmly believe that nobody other than Americans can do it but how and what are they going to do, remains a challenge for Americans.

The terrorism in the world is the result of no unresolved issues but medieval and backward mentality of large sections of the population. It will exist till the time these medieval population developed enough to enjoy the fruit of 21st century. Obama and McCain will not be able to resolve them unless they force them grow. But then, is it Americans responsibility? Is it America's President's responsibility that people develop and live happily on earth? Every Americans will have to decide on this matter now.

All poor, deprived and backward people are real threat to any developed society. And there are no one other than Muslims who are real deprived, poor, and backward in spite of their oil money. But eradicating them is a challenge unless these poor are eliminated from this earth war will prevail.

The change can be brought through some forceful means only. Whether Obama or McCain, he will have to act as Super-god to eradicate poverty, deprivation and backwardness from this earth.

Hope Americans understand these when they decide to choose their leader.
