10 Years After 9/11: Era of Endless Wars?

The United States is marking a decade since the 9/11 terror attacks on New York and Washington D.C. It was the worst strike on U.S. soil in history, which united a nation in its determination to seek out the perpetrators, and prevent more deaths.

But the American-led invasion of Afghanistan that followed 9/11, has claimed thousands more lives in what's now the longest conflict in U.S. history. While the initial aim of the war on terror was to target Al Qaeda, which was blamed for the attack on America, the fight was soon extended to Iraq.
