The cost of the War On Terror

    10:03 AM   No comments

The war in Ukraine cannot be seen just as the war in Ukraine; precedent setting has consequences. The reluctance in Muslim majority countries to condemn the armed conflict in Ukraine can be explained by the illegal invasion of Iraq and the recklessness of western governments with the blood and property of Muslims.

About twenty years since the launch of the War on Terror, which practically was a war on Muslims, and the effect of the military campaign is yet to be fully felt and the facts about this war on terror is yet to be revealed. But some information is now emerging.

The Washington Post reported on a new report by researchers that the number of victims of the US "war on terrorism" after September 11, 2001 is estimated to be around 4.6 million.

The referenced study is likely to be a low count since it estimates only the deaths caused directly by activities the US government labels as part of the War on Terror. However, the War on terror has had far destabilizing effect on the entire region and perhaps the world. In fact, even the war in Ukraine can be attributed to the war on terror. In fact, many of the groups designated as terror groups are in Ukraine now.

It is difficult to calculate the minimum number of deaths associated with the war on terrorism in the conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia and Yemen, because the consequences are "so extensive and complex" that they ultimately cannot be quantified.

 According to estimates, the death toll ranges from 4.5 to 4.6 million people, from 3.6 to 3.7 million of whom died for "indirect reasons" caused by the deterioration of economic, environmental, psychological conditions and health conditions. But it says nothing about NATO’s war in Libya, Syria, and Yemen.
