War on Terror: 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, and ISIS

"The United States’ "war on terror" was a multifaceted effort to prevent the spread of terrorist ideologies and activities. Framed by President George W. Bush and his administration as an attempt to destroy both state-specific and international terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah, the war on terror mostly took the form of extended military operations, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan". - Source: Salem Press Encyclopedia, 2019.
