 News: Iraq is Not War on Terror, Say Americans

Opinion / EditorialIraq is Not War on Terror, Say Americans
Angus Reid Global Scan
Polls & Research

Many adults in the United States think the coalition effort is not related to the operation in Afghanistan, according to a poll by Opinion Research Corporation released by CNN. 53 per cent of respondents think the Iraq war is not part of the U.S.-led war on terror.

Afghanistan has been the main battleground in the war on terrorism. The conflict began in October 2001, after the Taliban regime refused to hand over Osama bin Laden, prime suspect in the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. Al-Qaeda operatives hijacked and crashed four airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001, killing nearly 3,000 people.

At least 471 soldiers—including 333 Americans—have died in the war on terrorism, either in support of the U.S.-led Operation Enduring Freedom or as part of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) led by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). 62 per cent of respondents believe neither side is wining the war on terror.

The coalition effort against Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq was launched in March 2003. At least 2,671 American soldiers have died during the military operation, and more than 20,100 troops have been wounded in action.

On Sept. 11, U.S. president George W. Bush addressed the nation to discuss the war on terrorism. Bush declared, "I’m often asked why we’re in Iraq when Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the 9/11 attacks. The answer is that the regime of Saddam Hussein was a clear threat. My administration, the Congress, and the United Nations saw the threat—and after 9/11, Saddam’s regime posed a risk that the world could not afford to take. The world is safer because Saddam Hussein is no longer in power."
