Another Osama: will natural resources be a reason?

Beaming all over the Indian media is the Pakistan flag freshly branded 'the suspect state', after the much rejoiced and equally condemned Osama killing. Pakistan, with the second largest Muslim population in the world, is also a perfect haven to the famous hardliners the world has seen.

This country is listed as one of the most dangerous regions in the world. With the economy dependent on support and the strings of governance being pulled from elsewhere, the state sometimes has to oblige to favors by weighing the odds.

Islam is the fastest growing religion and also strong enough to steer way for its people. They coincidentally also hold their homes atop the global black treasure called Petroleum. Hence their lives are prone to drones or foreign forces controlling them. The price that they pay comes in the form of casualties in or around their household, making them vulnerable to take up a cause like terrorism.

When the 9/11 happened, half the world condemned the Osama factor, but only few voiced concerns. And no one complained when the US attacked and invaded other countries, infused unrest and triggered factions that led to suicide bombings.

With the world's fingers now pointed towards Pakistan, there are threats of a potential catastrophe to neighbor India if Islamabad is attacked.

There are facts and there is folly; then there are erased facts and folly; and then there are made-up facts and folly. Where is it all leading to? With a steady decline in natural resources and minerals, where will the gun point next?
