The ongoing War on Terror: What's it really about?

The War on Terror is never-ending. But is it really about a war on ISIL or their barbaric methods or a recapture of what is left of the Middle East after two disastrous wars?

From 2001 to today: The never-ending War on Terror

Image: Jared Rodriguez / t r u t h o u t/flickr

On October 6, 2014, a U.S. judge decided to make information public about the horrific force-feeding of Abu Wa'el Dhiab, a Guantanamo detainee.

The news didn't make the headlines on CNN or Fox news. The treatment was not denounced over and over by every big or small Muslim organization, as they have done when it comes to the treatment of minorities and journalists by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). In some media outlets, the news was portrayed as a victory for transparency and government accountability.

ISIS: Their barbarism… and ours

Image: Jared Rodriguez / t r u t h o u t/flickr

The incessant drumbeat of war, accompanied by the harsh propaganda of "barbarism" and "brutality" directed at individuals in Syria and Iraq, is as wearily familiar as that used to demonize the German "Hun" a century ago and dozens of other "enemies" in the interim.

Gaza: The dictates of conscience or dictated conscience

"War is organized murder, nothing else."

- Harry Patch, last survivor of the First World War

The recent painful round of hostilities in Gaza followed by efforts to restore peace in the area, have resulted in a temporary but highly inflammable ceasefire. The month-long conflict telecast a live dance of death and destruction on TV screens around the globe. The terrible tragedy has created a challenge for all who love and respect human life, irrespective of colour, cast and creed.

The miseries, sufferings and violation of human rights in Gaza have taken the precious lives of nearly 1,900 Palestinians, mostly civilians, along with 70 Israeli soldiers and four innocent Israeli civilians.
