Baghdad

Watching the movie made me recall the live images of the city of Baghdad being bombed, on TV, some 7 years back. Imagine a flourished city with normal people and normal affairs, being bombed overnight. The people who were lucky (or unlucky!) enough to wake up in the morning to get back to their businesses would have been left with nothing at all. The schools, hospitals, offices, market places were all crippled beyond imagination. It is like destroying an entire civilization in one night. The city of Baghdad almost ceased to exist and had come to a stand still! It was reduced to a bunch of debris with rotting dead bodies. The same might have been the case with Hiroshima and Nagasaki or Pearl Harbour for that matter. It is like the handy work of an evil force which arrives overnight and changes everything in its way forever! Well, it has been repeating time and again with the human history; only places, time and people are different. 

[PS: These are some of the thoughts I had after watching the movie Fahrenheit 9/11. Criticism is welcome!]
