A Silent Message To Americans From Pakistani Youth


Listen O Americans !!!!

 Listen and see what life your soldiers are living in  the, so called, “War on Terror”


Your cellphone is in your pocket. You’re looking at all the pretty girls. 


He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists as described by his government.
 
He’s told he will be held over an extra 2 months.

You call your girlfriend and set a date for tonight.


He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.

You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday. 

He holds his letter close and smells his love’s perfume.



You roll your eyes as a baby cries.


He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they’ll ever meet.

You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything. 

He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and fails to understand why he is
 fighting.


You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.

 

He hears the gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded.


You see only what the media wants you to see.


He sees the broken bodies lying around him.



You are asked to do something by your parents. You don’t.


He does exactly what he is told even if it puts his life in danger and an innocent man, woman or child is killed.


You stay at home and watch TV.


He takes whatever time he is given to call, write home, sleep, and eat.


You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.


He tries to sleep but gets woken by mortars and helicopters all night long.
