A recently produced map outlines that nearly two decades after 9/11 and in the wake of the so-called “war on terror” global militant jihadists are stronger than ever in terms of numbers. 

The map published by the DC-based Center For Strategic and International Studies lays out just how expanded the global Salafi-Jihadist terrorism threat has become over the past few years.

“Despite nearly two decades of U.S.-led counterterrorism operations, there are nearly four times as many Sunni Islamic militants today as there were on September 11, 2001,” the prior CSIS study found. 

By the numbers, they include

Syria: largest number of fighters at between 43,650 and 70,550 (most now in Idlib province)

Afghanistan: between 27,000 and 64,060 and increasingly resurgent 

Pakistan: between 17,900 and 39,540

Iraq: between 10,000 and 15,000

Nigeria: between 3,450 and 6,900

Somolia: between 3,095 and 7,240

Of course, it remains that many of the very think tanks highlighting the expanded jihadist threat use such numbers to argue, ironically enough, simply doing more of the same anytime there’s a push from the administration to “bring the troops home”.

And yet it remains that as American troop presence in the Middle East and North Africa grows, so do the jihadists’ numbers, underscoring what former Congressman Ron Paul has long described as the ‘blowback’ of US imperialism and nation-building.
