The September 11 attacks in the United States in 2001 marked a major turning point globally in terms of the variables on which Washington built its destructive policies towards countries of the world, where the United States used those events as a pretext to carry out its ill-fated plans and wage wars against countries that the White House is not satisfied with. Under the allegations of "counter-terrorism".
Under the so-called "pre-emptive war," after the September 11 attacks, Washington launched wars against independent states, beginning to invade Afghanistan and then Iraq, destabilizing the Middle East by supporting terrorism and imposing economic sanctions on some of its countries.
Observers point out that the serious negative reflection in international relations after the events of September is the consecration of successive US administrations approach of military intervention through waging wars and overthrowing countries that do not go in the American orbit without any justification and a good example of aggression against Iraq under the allegations of possessing weapons of mass destruction Later, it is a lie and admitted by American officials, which Washington fabricated to occupy Iraq, destroy its institutions and dominate its capabilities.
Perhaps the most articulate expression of American arrogance about the adoption of this policy was acknowledged by former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld at a NATO meeting in Brussels in 2002 that “NATO cannot wait for hard evidence to act against countries that possess chemical, biological or nuclear weapons”. This statement is a prelude to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and a "pre-emptive strike" according to the new concept of US military strategy.
The actions taken by the United States in response to the attacks of September 11 led to major disasters and killed and injured thousands of innocent people in many countries of the world, and this was evident in the war that led them to Afghanistan and Iraq.
The invasion of Iraq, the occupation of Afghanistan and the expansion of the so-called war on terror ultimately aimed at passing US strategies to redefine a new geopolitical map that redraws borders and balances in the Middle East and the world. The terrorist, whom America pretends to classify as a terrorist, has facilitated its growth and development in the region.
The French newspaper Le Monde revealed in 2017, citing a study by the Center for International and Strategic Studies that Washington spent on the wars it led after the attacks of September 11 in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria up to $ 2000 billion, the share of the expenses of the Pentagon alone in Afghanistan 840 billion .
Returning to the September 11 attacks, the investigation has been kept secret and Washington has not announced any results. However, the finger has been pointed at the Saudi regime, where several US media reports have pointed to a major role in financing those attacks. The deal with the Bani Saud regime is similar to serving its various economic interests with this system.
In 2016, the United States published a classified part of a government report that investigated the US authorities for a link between Saudi regime officials and the September attacks that revealed that the terrorists who carried it out had the support of high-ranking Saudi intelligence officials.
The US administration has come under heavy pressure from lawmakers and organizations to declassify this part of the 28-page report by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, dating back to 2002. The Bush administration has asked that these pages be kept secret and not published, which has provoked many Rumors about the involvement of the Saudi regime in those attacks.
The British writer Robert Fisk pointed out that former President Barack Obama was "compelled" to ignore the fact that the Saudi regime was involved in the September attacks in order to preserve the trade, economic and geopolitical relations that bring the United States to Saudi Arabia.
Today, the United States, under President Donald Trump's administration 18 years after the events of September, continues the destructive approach in the world on which it built its policies. From the nuclear agreement with Iran and many international agreements as well as bilateral with Russia and launched a trade war with China and imposed economic sanctions on Syria, Russia, Venezuela and Iran under false allegations.
