REPORT: After 17 Years, ‘The War on Terror’ Quadrupled the Number Terrorists Worldwide

A new report reveals what many astute readers have known for a long time: that Washington’s fabled ‘War on Terror’ has in fact had the reverse effect: the number of global jihadists has actually quadrupled since the canard was launched under the Bush Administration in late 2001.

After 17 years of throwaway multi-billion dollar ‘security’ initiatives internationally, domestically in the US, and also throughout the western world – the War on Terror can be now realized as an abject failure, but also as a colossal transfer of wealth from western taxpayers – and into the pockets of the security and military industrial complex. During the presidencies of George Bush and Barack Obama, and now Donald Trump, the overseas money sinks continue in stalwart markets like Iraq and Afghanistan, and with new profit centers coming online in Syria, Yemen, Libya and Africa.

At what point will the proverbial penny finally drop?

RT International reports…

Despite Washington’s extremely costly worldwide ‘War on Terror’, nearly four times as many Sunni Islamic militants are operating around the world today as on September 11, 2001, a new study has found.

As many as 230,000 jihadists are spread across 70 countries, with the largest concentrations of terrorists located in Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington DC think tank.

The shocking reported spike in the number of Sunni jihadists worldwide raises serious questions about the effectiveness of the US-led Global War on Terrorism, which was launched in the wake of the deadly attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

US taxpayers have already forked over a mind-melting $5.9 trillion to fund the massive and increasingly secretive war – but the noble pursuit of eradicating terrorism has apparently had the opposite effect. Ironically, the think tank has called for the US to double-down, arguing that withdrawing forces from Africa and the Middle East would only embolden terrorist groups.
