The war in Mali and its tragic repercussions bring a debate between two parties back to the forefront. The first party argues that the war on terror is achieving progress, even though its outcome is not always ideal, and that the French intervention has dealt a blow to Ansar al-Din militants in a way that could herald their eventual military defeat. On the other hand, the second party sees this war as an absolute failure and cites al-Qaeda’s influence in Mali and the casualties that have taken place because of the confrontation, especially as far as the Algerian tragedy is concerned.
The killing of Mullah Nazir and his deputy Ratta Khan by a US drone strike in South Waziristan, Pakistan, and the earlier and subsequent blows dealt to militants in Yemen proves that the war on terror is indeed progressing not only militarily, but also politically. This is because the Pakistani regime now has to defend itself, the situation in Yemen is also being addressed following the resignation of Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the door for a new political scene in Somalia is being given a chance after several defeats to the al-Shabab movement.
