Do Men Fall In Love

I imagine our World without the AK-47 assault rifle, the (in)famous ingenious invention of Mikhail Kalashnikov, with eyes closed I ponder the irony of his "Longevity", I meditate on the natural (in)justice mechanism that we are condemned to live by, and thinking about how many similar cases that replete history, imagine how many more await us, then I appreciate how thoroughly confounded I am by it all.

A product crafted in the heat of war, a war fought for the love of Fatherland, the product universally acclaimed as successful not by its sheer beauty, but by its ruthless efficiency in robbing the the life of the living in a split second, a product with which Men of War around the Globe had indeed fallen head over heals in love with,

Politics is a game of numbers - how many votes? War is also a game of numbers - how many kills?

The AK-47, invention of the Russian Son of the soil, who fell in love with his Fatherland and by this feat made himself illustrious and relevant, has been adjudged the deadliest killing machine ( assault rifle) in history, little wonder why all Men of War around the World fell in love with this product. Indeed "Men do fall in love".

Gun runners and war mongers made a kill as business boomed, smiling to the banks as the fire of the love for the AK-47 burnt with harmattan frenzy, catching up with every corner of the world irrespective of how remote, leaving desolation in its wake. Yes business was good, the cash flowed, the merchants of this now hot merchandise, reveling in their new super lucrative occupation, created more markets, toppling countless duly elected governments. They evangelized more places with the wisdom and superiority of war over the long tortuous path of dialogue and peace making, the fire had to be sustained.

As the ranks of these noveaux riche wheeler dealers gained size, so did the army of lovers and even worshipers of the wonder invention, more countries fell under military rule, the not so lucky Nations still writhe in the pains of war.The Russian military wiz-kid had made one big smoldering battle field out of our once beautiful world.

Some organisations and Nations like Hezbollah, Zimbabwe, East Timor etc. revered the image of the AK-47 so much that they upgraded it into some form of official emblem and insignia. Such is how much the killer machine is adored. The list of its disciples is endless, the countries and homelands desolated runs into scores, and the number of lives lost to it is uncountable.

While all this went on, the ingenious inventor was hale and hearty in his own now peaceful homeland, enjoying the robust proceeds of his Patent, the wonder invention of all times.Having finally slept at 94, he lived long enough to personally supervise the mass production of his invention, and to assess and attest first hand to its efficiency, outliving several millions of the human guinea pigs used in the now global laboratory for the modernization and sustained production of his AK-47.

When asked how he feels about all the people killed by the over 100 million AK-47 rifles around the world he said: "I sleep very well and soundly too, I have no qualms, the politicians are the ones that have questions to answer". One never sees any wrong in his lover.

Men do fall in love, sometimes with the strangest objects around.
