In support of the global war on terrorism.

The War on Terrorism or War on Terror is a campaign that the United States and some of its allies started to remove terrorist groups and to punish the states that sponsor terrorism. The former United States President Bush's argument was that the countries like North Korea, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya were a direct threat to America and its allies. The term was typically used with a particular focus on militant Islamists and al-Qaeda.

The Ddministration of US President Barack Obama uses the term Overseas Contingency Operation.[1]
