War on Iraq

War is the waging of armed conflict against an enemy. War is a dreadful word. Whenever it is spoken or read a terrible picture appears on the screen of our mind.Some years ago, the picture and concept of the war was not as it is today. There was a vast battlefield in which two armies were engaged in a fight. They were trying to kill as many of their opponents as possible. For this purpose they user guns and tanks. In the seas, two navies were also battling against each other, with ships sinking and men drowning.In olden times, war was not as destructive as it is today. People did die and ruin and destruction did take place, but it was on a limited scale. It was mostly soldiers and army men who were killed and the cities and villages remained almost safe.But the modern war kills both soldiers and civilians and its battlefield spreads over the whole countries. The reason for this lies in the great development in the field of armament. Now we gave new kind of guided missiles, super sonic bombers and most dangerous of all nuclear weapons and bombs.When the battle ends we see hundreds of men lying on the ground. Most of them are dead. Many corpses are bloody and cut into pieces. There is so much destruction everywhere that men have to begin from the beginning. The whole economy has to be reconstructed.This is all, which is going on in Iraq these days. There are lots of reasons and factors for this US-led attach on Iraq. Some of them are on the scene and some of them are behind the scene. As you all know, US never work on a single agenda. They have different points in their so-called masterminds.The point that US raises in front of UN and in front of the whole world is that Iraq has nuclear weapons and these weapons are very dangerous for the peace in US and in the whole world. They started doing propaganda and making a horrible picture of Iraq in front of their state and the whole world. They said that Iraqi government is terrorist. They will use their nuclear weapons against US.United Nations send their inspectors to inspect sensitive places in Iraq in order to find that whether there are any nuclear weapons present in Iraq.The UN inspectors after inspection presented their reports in which it was evident that Iraq does not have any nuclear missiles or weapons.After this US changed its policy and stated that they gave fear from Iraqi government and they are going to change the regime of Saddam Hussein. They threaten Saddam Hussein to leave Iraq otherwise US will attack Iraq.US did not opt the UN war resolution and launched attack on Iraq. Bombardment started from the planes and from the US navy ships in Gulf. Hundreds of cruise missiles hit the ground at a time. The destruction had begun. The mission named “shock & awe” has started.Everyone was frightened. People came out of their houses and started protesting against war. Demanding an immediate end to the US-led war on Iraq, demonstrators took to the streets of almost all cities throughout the world. Everyone wanted peace on the whole world.But all that protests went in vain. US had some other plans in their minds, which are behind the scene. They want to totally change the world order. They are taking advantage of their being a super power. They want to take hold of oil fields in Iraq so that they can get fuel very cheaply and that’s how they can boost their economy.The US strikes against Iraq is a symbol of the emergence of a new Hitlerism. They are terrorists themselves. They have nuclear weapons. How can they call other states, terrorists? First of all they have to be disarmed.At first they attacked Afghanistan, then Iraq. Who will be the next? We have to think about it. UN is a dummy entity. Its role is so negligible in the sight of such powerful states. The countries themselves have to think about it seriously. May be they’ll be the next one.All countries should protect their sovereignty but also ensuring peace and stability. World’s peace is in great danger at this time. Other powerful countries can also take this step against their weak rival countries. India can attack Pakistan. India is already equating Iraq with Kashmir. The world leaders should think about it seriously.Pakistan government’s role is not so clear about this war. They have adopted a diplomatic policy. But the people of Pakistan condemn this war whole-heartedly. They protested against the war. Pakistanis are peace lovers. They want peace all over the world.War is an abominable, inhuman activity. Man’s war impulse is the darkest side of his nature, and the result is dreadful. The only way to escape the horrors of war is to stop war. If every nation agrees to settle its disputes through peaceful means, on and around the table, not by war, we can hope for a bright future for humanity.
