Half Million Humans Slaughtered, $4 Trillion Wasted Since 9/11 and Al Qaeda is Stronger Than Ever
![](https://thefreethoughtproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/911-alqcia-696x366.jpg)

<p>&nbsp;Every year on September 11, Americans remember the horrific attacks &nbsp;that were carried out in 2001, which have been used to shape United &nbsp;States foreign policy, and to act as a symbol for the “War on Terror.” &nbsp;The attacks were attributed to 19 hijackers affiliated with the &nbsp;terrorist group Al Qaeda—a group that is arguably stronger than ever on &nbsp;the 17th anniversary of 9/11. On September 21, 2001, just 10 days after the attacks, former President George W. Bush made a <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/world/2001/sep/21/september11.usa13">speech</a> addressing the nation, and he placed the blame on Al-Qaeda, claiming that <em>“</em><em><strong>Al Qaeda is to terror what the mafia is to crime</strong></em><em>.”</em>&nbsp;</p>
<blockquote><em>“Americans have many questions tonight. Americans are &nbsp;asking: Who attacked our country? The evidence we have gathered all &nbsp;points to a collection of loosely affiliated terrorist organizations &nbsp;known as al Qaeda. They are the same murderers indicted for bombing &nbsp;American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, and responsible for bombing &nbsp;the USS Cole. Al Qaeda is to terror what the mafia is to crime. But its &nbsp;goal is not making money; its goal is remaking the world—and imposing &nbsp;its radical beliefs on people everywhere.</em> <em>The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that &nbsp;has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim &nbsp;clerics—a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam. &nbsp;The terrorists’ directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews, to &nbsp;kill all Americans, and make no distinction among military and &nbsp;civilians, including women and children.”</em>&nbsp;</blockquote>
<p>Al Qaeda was not a terrorist group that magically appeared out of nowhere—it grew as a result of <a href="https://www.academia.edu/2897792/Operation_Cyclone_1979-1989_A_Brief_Analysis_of_the_U.S._Involvement_in_the_Soviet-Afghan_War">Operation Cyclone</a>, &nbsp;a program carried out by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency that &nbsp;armed and funded the Mujahideen in Afghanistan in the 1980s.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Operation &nbsp;Cyclone created a vacuum in the region that made the perfect climate for &nbsp;both the Taliban and Al Qaeda to grow and flourish.&nbsp;</p>
<p>However, in 2001, Al Qaeda became the face of evil in the United &nbsp;States, and the Bush Administration launched the “War on Terror” with &nbsp;the purpose of defeating the group altogether.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The results of that ongoing mission have been horrific, and the death toll is staggering. In Iraq alone, the death toll was <a href="https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/15/iraq-death-toll_n_4102855.html">estimated</a> to have <strong>surpassed 500,000</strong> &nbsp;by the end of 2017.&nbsp;</p>
<p>According to university researchers in the United &nbsp;States, Canada, and Baghdad in cooperation with the Iraqi Ministry of &nbsp;Health, “<em>about 70 percent of Iraq deaths from 2003-2011 were violent &nbsp;in nature, with most caused by gunshots, followed by car bombs and &nbsp;other explosions.”</em> In Afghanistan, the War on Terror has cost&nbsp;<a href="https://thefreethoughtproject.com/afghanistan-war-16-anniversary/">more than $1 trillion</a>&nbsp;and &nbsp;more than 31,000 civilian deaths have been documented.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Civilian deaths &nbsp;have&nbsp;substantially increased in recent years—which serves as a reminder &nbsp;that the situation is only getting worse, and is not ending anytime &nbsp;soon. According to an <a href="https://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/files/cow/imce/news/Costs%20of%20U.S.%20Post-9_11%20NC%20Crawford%20FINAL%20.pdf">analysis</a> &nbsp;from the “Costs of War Project” from Brown University’s Watson &nbsp;Institute, by the end of 2018, the U.S. War on Terror will cost America &nbsp;taxpayers <strong>more than $5.6 trillion</strong>, which is an average of $23,386 per taxpayer.&nbsp;</p>
<blockquote><em>“As of late September 2017, the United States wars in &nbsp;Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria and the additional spending on &nbsp;Homeland Security, and the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs &nbsp;since the 9/11 attacks totaled more than $4.3 trillion in current &nbsp;dollars through FY2017. Adding likely costs for FY2018 and estimated &nbsp;future spending on veterans, the costs of war total more than $5.6 &nbsp;trillion.”</em></blockquote>
<p>As The Nation <a href="https://www.thenation.com/article/americas-war-on-terror-has-cost-taxpayers-5-6-trillion/">noted</a>, that estimate does not include several factors such as <em>“the &nbsp;psychic costs to the Americans mangled in one way or another in those &nbsp;never-ending conflicts. They don’t include the costs to this country’s &nbsp;infrastructure, which has been&nbsp;crumbling&nbsp;while &nbsp;taxpayer dollars flow copiously and in a remarkably—in these years, &nbsp;almost uniquely—bipartisan fashion into what’s still laughably called &nbsp;‘national security.’”</em> &nbsp;</p>
<h3><strong>After 17 years, there is no sign that the War on Terror &nbsp;is&nbsp;ending anytime soon, but surely the United States is finally close to &nbsp;defeating Al Qaeda—right?</strong>&nbsp;</h3>
<p>Unfortunately, the opposite is true. A <a href="http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-al-qaeda-survive-20180910-story.html">report</a> from the Los Angeles Times noted that in 2018, “<em><strong>Al Qaeda may be stronger than ever</strong></em>,” and instead of destroying the group, “<em><strong>U.S. policies in the Mideast appear to have encouraged its spread</strong></em>.”&nbsp;</p>
<blockquote><em><strong>“The group has amassed the largest fighting &nbsp;force in its existence. Estimates say it may have more than 20,000 &nbsp;militants in Syria and Yemen alone. It boasts affiliates across North &nbsp;Africa, the Levant and parts of Asia, and it remains strong around the &nbsp;Afghanistan-Pakistan border.”</strong></em></blockquote>
<p>While Al Qaeda may have started out as a small terrorist group, it &nbsp;has now grown into a massive network that is flourishing in Iraq, Yemen, &nbsp;Somalia, Syria, and Libya—<strong>all countries where the U.S. has actively carried out bombing campaigns in recent years.</strong>&nbsp;</p>
<p>On the anniversary of 9/11, it is time for Americans to acknowledge &nbsp;that after 17 years, unlimited funding approved by both Democrats and &nbsp;Republicans, and a brutal foreign policy that has killed hundreds of &nbsp;thousands of innocent civilians, the only thing the United States has &nbsp;accomplished in the Middle East is to create chaos, destruction, and the &nbsp;perfect environment for extremist groups to flourish.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Indeed, US f<a href="https://thefreethoughtproject.com/foreign-policy-created-million-osama-bin-ladens-9-11/">oreign policy has created a million Osama Bin Ladens</a>&nbsp;since that fateful day and we’re on track to create a million more.&nbsp;</p>

Well-written post. I can remember when people were 'talking about' if we should go into a 'retaliatory' war after 9/11. The vast majority were totally against it. I was reminded how little the 'little man' mattered in the big scheme of things; and, as long as all he did was talk rhetoric on the radio, "all would be well". As I'm writing this reply, ironically I'm listening to a podcast talking about the potential of yet another war involving Syria, Russia, and Iran.

I posted a dream I had about war on U.S. soil; and, won't be surprised at all should this occur. I use it as a reminder to tell people to repent for the time is at hand.

Best regards.

Peace.

We are the king terrorists.  We create the  terrorists, with terror.  Then we point the finger and make them the bad guys because they are fed up with being shot, bombed, and controled.

We like to have our cake and eat it too.  Par for the course.  Violence begets violence.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The Golden Rule. The Freemason controlled military industrial complex WANTS PERPETUAL WAR AND HATE which creates PERPETUAL PROFITS for Freemasons. That is part of their deal with their higher power Satan. Do Satan's bidding and carry his agenda and the   leaders will get $$$$ and power in exchange for their souls. The Thou shalt not commit murder of the 10 commandments in the Bible is being violated on a massive scale by the participants BY THEIR FREE WILL  in every war.

Thank you so much for writing this article from the perspective of a conscientious American citizen. It is very refreshing for us peeps who live outside of America to read something like this, to remind us of all the good people living in America.

It is incredibly sad that the propaganda peddled by the American government is so pervasive... producing a swathe of ridiculously passionate, racist citizens watching Fox News and viciously approving of perpetual war with 0% knowledge / emapthy with others...

I visited Chicago recently and saw a great skit by a bald piano player about American propaganda, and I think it's too good not to share: 

"One day my daughter came to me and said: daddy, I've got two options for a career, and I want your honest opinion...

'The first one is I'll go west to LA and become a porn star. That's right, hit the sunshine coast and hit it hard! And I'll fuck and I'll suck and all on camera. And then, when the credits roll, there'll be your last name, up on the screen. Wouldn't that be great??'

(So I thought, damn... I guess whatever the second job is has GOT TO be better than that...) Ahem! Ok, well sounds good... but what's the other option, pumpkin??

'Well daddy, I'll go out east to New York City. The Big Apple! And I'll become a news anchor for FOX NEWS. I'll get botox and tell everyone the real hardhitting news under the bright lights. And then, when the credits roll, there'll be your last name, up on the screen. Wouldn't that be great??'

So I took a quick pause just to process things, and then boomed: WELL PUMPKIN, you're going to LA!! Pack your things, and be quick about it. I'm driving you to LA, right now!

You see, sweetie: I'd rather you fuck every Tom, Dick and Harry on the whole west coast than fuck over the entire world! So let's get in our good ol' Ford and fire up the engine, we're taking you to LA!"
