Just response to war on terror — chinadaily.com.cn

In the regional context, though not really successful, the US has tried using media power to exploit certain violent incidents to create misgivings between China and Pakistan as part of its strategy for creating a “de-link” between Beijing and Islamabad.

It is evident from the above analysis that the US has not been successful in eliminating terrorism or even terrorists. It is difficult to believe that Al-Qaida has lost whatever influence it used to have. On the contrary, it has become an ideology and the Taliban are much stronger, whereas the US, though still the most powerful country, (and its allies) has paid a high price in terms of human, economic, social and political costs, which has had a negative impact on its role as a global leader.
