ABSTRACT
The author argues that the American government's use of military force against terrorism is illegal, immoral, and futile, and claims that the U.S. military has been involved in excessive use of force incidents and violations of human rights. According to the article, the war on terror rhetoric and military policies have helped to spread terrorism. The International Criminal Court and a justification legal doctrine are examined. Other topics include the Afghan War, the Iraq War, and President George W. Bush's military policies after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
