Osama or 'Raqtbeej'

 By killing Osama Bin Laden, America has eliminated the Frankenstein monster that it had once created to act against the then USSR, but who turned against America itself after the USSR withdrawal from Afganistan.  So, nothing great in that except the style of doing it, ie., killing the monster in a covert operation without the knowledge of it's misguided brat Pakistan, whom the US has been nurturing in its arms and nourishing him since long and in whose backyard the monster was living in style. The Americans chose a code word 'Geronimo' for Osama.

( Geronimo--June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909, was a prominent Native American leader of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States for their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades during the Apache Wars. Allegedly "Geronimo" was the name given to him during a Mexican incident, but his real name was Goyaałé from the Chiricahua language meaning "one who yawns"; often spelled Goyathlay or Goyahkla[2][3] in English.
After an attack by a company of Mexican soldiers killed many members of his family in 1858, Geronimo joined revenge attacks on the Mexicans and later against the United States. He became known for bravery and daring feats and was revered by the Apaches as a warrior with spiritual powers. In 1886 Geronimo was eventually tracked down by U.S. authorities and surrendered. As a prisoner of war in old age he became a celebrity but was never allowed to return to the land of his birth. He later regretted his surrender and claimed the conditions he made had been ignored. Geronimo died in 1909 after being thrown from his horse.
--Source Wikipedia).

If India was to carry out such an operation and if i was to choose a code word for him i would have chosen 'Raqtbeej' after the name of legendary demon, who fought with the gods in the famous battle of gods and demons (The Indian legend has it that 'Raqtbeej' was blessed with a boon that if he was killed in the battlefield, his every single drop of blood will give birth to another form of his. When the gods got frustrated after finding that Raqtbeej was not meeting his end and that every time he was killed by the gods, his blood drops turned into many more 'Raqtbeej' after coming into contact with the earth. They all implored goddess Kali who had to drink all the blood oozing out from the body of 'Raqtbeej' before it dropped on the earth to form numerous other demons and thus the gods got rid of  'Raqtbeej' and ultimately won the battle with the demons)

So America and rest of the peace loving world will do better not to slip into complacency after the death of Osama. Although his 'will' mentions that he did not want his sons to join Al Qaida and become terrorists like him but there are many more mad men who will carry the blood of 'Raqtbeej' and will try to avenge his death and take the jihad ahead declared by Osama.

Any present day god, goddess, god man or god woman around who may be ready to drink the blood of the modern day 'Raqtbeej' to prevent the blood drops turning into numerous other such 'Raqtbeejas ???
