This is a massive public relations scam to burnish the image of America and Britain – the two countries that, rightly, are most associated with illegal war making over the past decade, from Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (2003) and Libya (2011) to ongoing deadly drone warfare in Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia. Between them, Washington and London are responsible for the deaths of more than 1.5 million people over the past 13 years.
What better way to rehabilitate the war criminals than to present them now as leading a moral crusade to defeat a global evil?

The attacks, however, have so far been ineffective in stopping the militants. The raids have prompted the terrorist to increase the number of their men and weapons.
