ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the global war against terrorism. The war is going very badly. Not only is there no end in sight but the terrorist Osama bin Laden, is, despite a $US25m bounty on his head, as elusive as ever. U.S. President George W. Bush, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Australian Prime Minister John Howard agree that terrorism has been growing into an international force that threatens all those who stand with the United States. This growth in terrorism has occurred during the coalition's colossal war against it, using all the military, political and intelligence powers at its disposal. In the U.S., there has been a shift in the public mood. Support for Washington's handling of Iraq has collapsed; only 34% now approve of Bush's policy and 61% disapprove. In Great Britain, more than 700 people have been arrested under the Terrorism Act since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This failure to define "terrorism" and "terrorist" can be used to legitimise military action because it portrays the challenge as such a loosely defined threat that it will never disappear.
