Now is the 16th anniversary anniversary of the 911 attacks, when Al Qaeda successfully blow up the world trade center in New York, or even cause damage to the The Pentagon, so that all Americans into hitherto unknown panic, also shocked the world.
Since then, the United States has begun waging a global war on terror, fighting Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, Syria in recent years...... But it seems that the longer the war against terrorism in the United States takes place, the more terrorism has spread.
Of course, judging from the effect of the fight against al Qaeda, it can be considered a success. Since the suicide bombing attack on London's transport network in 2005 killed 52 people, Al Qaeda did not seem to have launched a large-scale attack in the west.
But, ironically, Al Qaeda although suppressed, but another more difficult organization Islamic state have seized the opportunity in the chaos of Iraq and Syria to rise rapidly, not only to launch terrorist attacks in Europe take cities and seize territory, many countries still broke out terrorist attacks.
Of course, the Islamic state has been in the Iraqi government forces recaptured the headquarters of Mosul, in the Syria stronghold of La also will be gone. The US led coalition has killed about 60 thousand to 70 thousand Islamic state militants, according to the American special forces general.
Although the stronghold of extremist organizations is compromised, one by one, but at the same time, many trained in Syria and Iraq and Western extremists have returned, could launch attacks the lone wolf type at home, the United States is no exception. According to one count, 6 deadly jihadist attacks in the United States have killed 74 people since 2014. The terrible thing is that these attackers are all Americans, and they are completely different from those at 911. According to U.S. media reports, the United States received many extremist Islamic state online propaganda to confuse, although they may not have direct contact with the organization, but the extreme thought already and they were like, this trend for the United States, is very worthy of attention.
Even in the main activities of extremist groups in Iraq and the Middle East, although the Syria site is more and more small, but to destroy the organization completely, is not a short duration of time that the two countries the situation is still complicated, while other countries, such as Yemen and Libya's ongoing civil war, is still the extremist organization activities of the heaven, not to mention the short-term eradication of extreme thoughts.
