Monitoring Desk: A study conducted by Brown University of United States indicates that at least 37 million people had to leave their homes in the eight most violent wars the US military had launched or participated in since 2001.

This was indicated by Prague-based Foreign Affairs Expert Shazia Anwer Cheema in her article “Immigration to Europe and War on Terror: The choice between death by fire or death by water” published by Pakistan Today on Monday.

   

The article further indicates that the eight US-led wars examined by the report are in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, northwest Pakistan, and the Philippines.

“The displacement of people by these post-9/11 wars is almost without precedent. They compare the figures for the last 20 (September 2001 to September 2021) years with those for the whole of the 20th century, concluding that only the Second World War produced a bigger mass flight. Otherwise, the post-9/11 displacement exceeds that brought about by the Russian Revolution (6 million), the First World War (10 million), India-Pakistan Partition (14 million), East Bengal (10 million), the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan (6.3 million) and the Vietnam War (13 million),” the report said.

Writer Shazia Anwer Cheema in her article mentioned that the war on terror “thing” devastated Iraqis, Syrians, Yemenis, Libyans, and Somalians who had the mighty Mediterranean Sea between their destroyed homes and peaceful Europe and they had a choice between death by fire or death by water. European politicians claim that the phenomenon of waves of refugees and immigrants seeking safety in Europe has acted as a poison on EU societies, forgetting the fact that they were compelled to flee their homes in basic instinct of survival from NATO-led massacres.
