“Horrifically Catastrophic”: Report Finds So-Called U.S. War on Terror Has Displaced as Many as 59 Million People

This story just goes to show that as much as we, as national socialists, are the party of revolution and war against the establishment, we are just as much the party of peace on the global stage. The unbelievable mess in the Middle East today is, like every other humanitarian catastrophe, 100% on our opponents — the Anglo-Zionist globalists — and would not even be conceivable under an Aryan government. Zionist foreign policy does not consist in waging a war on terror but in waging a war of terror. So much for bringing “democracy” to these countries. — Dissident Millennial

‘Horrifically Catastrophic’: Report Finds So-Called US War on Terror Has Displaced as Many as 59 Million People

“We need a reckoning. We can’t simply move on.”

by Jake Johnson

THE ONGOING U.S. “WAR ON TERROR” has forcibly displaced as many as 59 million people from just eight countries in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia since 2001, according to a new report published Tuesday by Brown University’s Costs of War Project.

Titled “Creating Refugees: Displacement Caused by the United States’ Post-9/11 Wars” (pdf), the new report conservatively estimates that at least 37 million people have “fled their homes in the eight most violent wars the U.S. military has launched or participated in since 2001.”

The latest figure represents a dramatic increase from the Costs of War Project’s 2019 report, which estimated that 21 million people had been displaced internally or forced to flee their home countries due to violence inflicted or unleashed by U.S.-led wars over the past two decades. That report also put the death toll of the so-called war on terror at 801,000 and the price tag at $6.4 trillion.

The new report argues that “wartime displacement (alongside war deaths and injuries) must be central to any analysis of the post-9/11 wars and their short- and long-term consequences.”

“Displacement also must be central to any possible consideration of the future use of military force by the United States or others,” the report states. “Ultimately, displacing 37 million—and perhaps as many as 59 million—raises the question of who bears responsibility for repairing the damage inflicted on those displaced.”

In addition to the tens of millions displaced by U.S. military actions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, the Philippines, Libya, and Syria, the report notes that millions more have been displaced by “smaller combat operations, including in: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Niger, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia.”

“To put these figures in perspective, displacing 37 million people is equivalent to removing nearly all the residents of the state of California or all the people in Texas and Virginia combined,” the report says. “The figure is almost as large as the population of Canada. In historical terms, 37 million displaced is more than those displaced by any other war or disaster since at least the start of the 20th century with the sole exception of World War II.

David Vine, professor of anthropology at American University and the lead author of the new report, told the New York Times that the findings show “U.S. involvement in these countries has been horrifically catastrophic, horrifically damaging in ways that I don’t think that most people in the United States, in many ways myself included, have grappled with or reckoned with in even the slightest terms.”

Matt Duss, foreign policy adviser to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), demanded such a reckoning in a tweet responding to the Costs of War Project’s latest findings.

“The scale of the disaster the United States has inflicted on the world—through three war on terror presidencies—is staggering,” wrote Duss. “We need a reckoning. We can’t simply move on.”

Then they bring the refugees here at taxpayer expense to replace us.

Anyone notice the absence of terrorist attacks since covid19 struck? Are we to believe that the terrorists are unable to commit terrorist attacks because they are wearing masks and social distancing? Or have the orchestrators been diverted to a new distraction.

I somehow think that any “reckoning” would be the blood, sweat and tears of White Americans. I’m probably just being racist and anti-Semitic to think Jews and negroes will disavow responsibility.

You capitalize “jew” and not Negro. As you see, I would capitalize Negro or Black as most Blacks with education see the jew “using” them too. Yes BLM are Blacks, but uneducated I would guess and paid by Soros.

Just saw your comment.
My iPad capitalises “Jew” automatically. I wish it wouldn’t. I cannot turn it off.
But it does not automatically capitalise “black”.

There is nothing in the settings which enables me to turn off this irritating feature.

But the fact that this happens at all – it speaks volumes.

Matthew q: A bit choked up with laughter reading your comment. What brand is you computer i.e. “Windows”? On Apple it can be changed. Mine is a WOW Telikin for old people.

Apple IPad mini.
And you’re right, David, it can be changed (by force as it were) but “Jew” is the default setting.

THE USA HAS BEEN SINCE 1776 INVOLVED, THEREFORE IN 239 YEARS, IN 222 WARS, REMEMBERING THAT ALL WAR IS LARCENY, AS THIS REPERCUTE IN YOU.

….and how can you hopefully expect to get
the morons over here (North America) to own
up to their responsibility in this travesty when
you can’t even get them to stop wearing these
idiotic “face diapers?”

Needed is a New National Socialist party. We somewhat had one with Ralph Nader in 2000 with the Green Party, but today the jew owns the Green Party too. Not just Jill Stein, but the anti-fa is now connected to the Greens.

The USA (where I live) is lost to the N(j)ew World Order. Both Republican and Democrats take orders from i$rahell. We are i$rahell’s police force in the Middle East and probably in the rest of the world for jWall Street.

And these Zionist Imperial wars create all these refugees who are then brought in to further pollute and destroy native European populations.

The jews did 911 it was a controlled demolition of the WTC which the jews schemed to take possession and control of (Ronald “WJC” Lauder ,Lewis Eisenberg,larry “lucky” Silverstein, Frank “haganah” Lowy) .
We all knew they did it for another controlled demolition , the controlled demolition of the Arab nations so they could create eretz yisrael
but we did not foresee they planned a 3rd controlled demolition , the controlled demolition
of Europe through mass refugee immigration .
They fulfilled 2 major agendas with their jew false flag that day , the Oded Yinon plan and the Kalergi plan

“Horrifically Catastrophic”: Report Finds So-Called U.S. War on Terror Has Displaced as Many as 59 Million People The only HORROR that is a result of this 59 million people displaced is the fact that millions of these are making their way to white Europe. That’s the only thing that concerns me; otherwise I couldn’t care less about their fate. The so-called ‘Arab Spring’ that happened under the Obama and Hillary Clinton watch was absolutely unnecessary and was a product of I believe deliberate thinking and action on the part of those two jerks. The Arabs in North Africa and the Middle East were perfectly content to fight among themselves and to maintain their own cultures in whatever fashion they deem necessary and we because of those two clowns had to… Read more »
