There was a Lion who faced a peculiar problem. When he took dinner, pieces of meat stuck in his mien. When he went to sleep , a Rat would come and disturb the sleep.The Lion then hired a Cat whose job was to keep the Rat at bay.In return the Cat could partake the Lion’s dinner.

One day the Cat caught the Rat and killed it. The Cat was no longer needed and was therefore dismissed.
The Cat declared it was a mistake on his part to have killed the Rat. He should have kept the problem alive for the sake of his own employment.
As students of contemporary affairs know, USA is spending huge amounts of money to solve the Afghanistan problem.Some persons must be benefiting from this. Would it be in their interest to see the problem solved?
