Barack Obama and his wars…

The decision by Barack Obama to send 30 000 troops to Afghanistan is logic and it is clear that the United States must minimize the sources of terrorism that threaten the security of their country. To get there, as the president said, he must eliminate the enemy at the source.
But we must also ask: Is it possible to defeat terrorism by military force?
The United States is like the Rome of Julius Caesar and the power of the U.S. army is comparable to the one of the Roman army and its soldiers. It must be noted that Rome has lost the war and often the efforts of one individual are more percussive than a whole army.
This situation is not true only in war but in all areas of life. We questioned one days Bill Gates on his worst fears and he replied that it was not Apple, Google or Facebook but the single individual alone in his garage who will invent a new gadget that would become the new dominance of the world. The story of David against Goliath also demonstrated beyond any doubt that the efforts of giants can be defeated by those of a small solitary warrior.
For this reason there is no assurance that the actions of President Barack Obama will reach their target no more than George W. Bush had managed to achieve success. The terrorist is a sort of Don Quixote, who believes that the mills wind are dragons. It may be totally crazy, but his solo efforts destroyed all the mills in his way. It is like the small group of 16 people who have destroyed the World Trade Center in 2001.
How to fight terrorism? By individual actions. We must rethink the whole strategy of war and especially to ensure that each individual in our society is really concerned with peace. We must encourage respect for our organized society and our organized way of life. Currently, with all the crimes and all the disappointments of our models and leaders, from Bernard Madoff to Tiger Wood, the society is completely disillusioned and we no longer trust anyone. We respects no value and each individual is somehow an enemy of his own country. We must bring back the values of society and solidarity. If we do not do that, we will be at war for much longer, even for the next 2000 years, and there is no doubt that Don Quixote will win these wars …
