Though Mr. Thomas L. Friedman did talk about the dark side of Osama and its religious followers and belief I never really absorbed what he was trying to say not until I saw the video. It provided me a strong sense of understanding on how loyalty, culture and religion could really affect one person principles in life. Just imagine this, while, most people in the United States think that Osama is the most evil person in the whole world the people in Pakistan think he is their god.
One of the most striking episode that hit me with how human brutality exist was when after two years of negotiation of both Pakistani army and the Taliban forces, a failed implementation suddenly occur right after a few days and one by one the Taliban forces killed their elders who negotiated with the US. You could also see a number of people being hung in the public and the people seems doesn't care or even rejoice for they think that these people deserve it. Perhaps, the worse of them all was a number of human beings tied up and drag by a car shouting these words "Long live: Osama bin Laden."
It may seem not right to us but the most surprising of them all is the Muslim people of Pakistan supports this kind of virtues and even donated more than $4,000, gold’s, silvers and a twenty cargo truck filled with blanket and all sorts of basic needs for their warriors.
It is so amazing how people choose the kind of virtues and live with it. As I reflect on these events I think my country Philippines particularly Cotabato City in Mindanao is changing into this kind of life. If we don't act now and perform the right implementation everything will change from bad to worse.
