Balance Sheet

This chapter examines the impact of the Iraq War on the war on terror. It suggests that the global perceptions of U.S. operations in Iraq have fueled anti-American and anti-Western sentiment, which intelligence and security services believe has radicalized Muslim populations. The chapter also discusses critics' contention that the war turned Iraq into a potential terrorist haven and that it has starved other fronts, particularly Afghanistan, of the resources required to defeat al Qaeda and its patrons.

Keywords:   Iraq Warm, war on terror, U.S.operations, anti-American sentiment, Muslim populations, terrorist haven, Afghanistan, Al Qaeda
