The article discusses the war against terrorism, being fought by the U.S., especially after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Terrorism, adopted by the enemy has proved to be an effective weapon of war against the U.S. The U.S. is at a war with Islamic jihadists, who are spread all around the world. They are guided by a violent ideology based on an extremist interpretation of the Muslim religion. The U.S. must defeat its enemy, the worldwide militant religious ideology.
