What are the Aims and Methods of the 'War on Terror'?
The 'War on Terror' is a world wide contribution of governments of the United States and its allies (UK and NATO) to eliminate international terrorist groups. It's primarily targets are Islamic groups, including the 9/11 bombers Al Qaeda. To ensure 'rogue nations' no longer harbour and support terrorist activity, they will be dealt with 'necessary and appropriate force'.
After the 9/11 attacks many aims were put forward in response to the 'War on Terror', however not all of these were in response to 9/11, some were about the 'War on Terror' overhaul.
One measure that was introduced after 9/11 was to find and destroy all terrorist training camps. All branches of the military are used, force, aggression and reconnaissance being main attributes to achieving this aim.
Two more aims introduced in response to 9/11 were find to find and destroy Al Qaeda and capture Osama Bin Laden. To achieve this plan, intelligence and the military is used to destroy the hierarchy, and destroy Al Qaeda as well as detaining both terrorists and suspected terrorists in Guantanamo Bay (Cuba).
