War on Terror: Not a Bad Record
[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] Has the war on international terrorism been lost? Have the US and its allies dropped out of the war on terror that they declared two decades ago? These are some of the questions raised by commentators across the globe last week as the US marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Many commentators answered both questions in the affirmative.

Yes, they said, terror groups are still operating in no fewer than 20 countries while start-up terror outfit have been able to carry out attacks in a number of Western countries including the United States. At the same time, the US has reduced its footprint in a number of countries that continue to shelter terrorist groups.

In some cases the "yes" answer came from professional America-bashers who miss no opportunity to portray the "Great Satan™" either as an earth-devouring monster or a wet mouse looking for shelter from a hailstorm of unpopularity.
