US P.L. 480

Underestimating US power is not a sign of wisdom. The BAL and BNP frontline leaders become too happy to get an audience from any low level US embassy employee. They learnt their lessons from the mistake of Mujibur Rahman.In 1974, Mujibur underestimated the power of US Public Law, P.L. 480. Through this P.L. 480 program, the US stopped shipment of food grain to Bangladesh at the critical juncture in 1974. The result was a devastating famine.BAL European worriers were too young or were not born to witness the 1974 famine. What the US think of Bangladesh is more important than what BAL & BNP worriers think about Bangladesh. It will be just an illusion to think otherwise.RobinCarmel, California
