BEIJING Wholesale Washington Redskin Jerseys , Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama is set to host the "Summit on Countering Violent Extremism" in Washington on Wednesday in an attempt to address the aggravating terrorist violence across the world.
This summit will be attended by security experts and government officials from member countries of the U.S.-led anti-terrorism coalition against the backdrop of recent terrorist attacks in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Since the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001, the United States has actively spearheaded the international fight against terrorism.
In the name of counter-terrorism, the George W. Bush administration launched two successive wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which, instead of stemming terrorism Wholesale Tennessee Titans Jerseys , have bred waves of terrorist activities and violence that have claimed tens of thousands of innocent lives.
Over the past 13 years, terrorist activities continue to rise worldwide. The Islamic State (IS) and other emerging terrorist groups pose new challenges to the global fight against terrorism, and their birth was partly related to the U.S. Middle East policy.
Last year, on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, Obama set out his strategy to unite with other countries for military actions against the IS in a televised address to the American public.
"America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat," Obama declared. "Our objective is clear: we will degrade Wholesale Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , and ultimately destroy IS through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy."
Compared to Bush's coalition, the "new anti-terror coalition" proposed by Obama appears to be more extensive, as it has to date involved more than 60 countries and regional organizations, some of which have taken an active part in the airstrikes against the IS.
But this coalition is not inclusive enough as Russia, Iran, Syria and other countries Wholesale Seattle Seahawks Jerseys , which are capable of contributing to the fight against the IS, are excluded.
Washington has limited the membership of the anti-terrorism coalition and alienated countries it dislikes out of geopolitical and global strategic considerations. Whether U.S. "enemies" should become partners is one of the dilemmas facing the coalition.
Not unexpectedly, the terrorist threat to international security is still increasing despite the ongoing U.S. counter-terrorism operations. During the past five months, the U.S.-led anti-terrorism coalition failed to come up with a clear strategic plan against the IS and almost no country was willing to send ground troops other than providing humanitarian aid or carrying out airstrikes.
This has raised serious questions about the viability of Washington's "international coalition", which looks rather like a patchwork of assorted countries with different interests.
The content-deficient slogan of a shared fight against terrorism, by which the countries are being tied to one another Wholesale San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , is seen as being "no better than the trite 'struggle for democracy' label that has been fully discredited in the wake of the Arab Spring."
Terrorism is the common enemy of the world, and the like-minded U.S.-led coalition of allies cannot win the war against terrorism by itself. More stakeholders should be involved to jointly tackle the problem.
Meanwhile, the fight against terrorism is a long-term battle. The international community should work together to take multi-pronged measures in the political, security, economic, financial and information-sharing fields to remove the breeding ground of terrorism.

Madonna had to pull a Kanye West on Kanye West to get the rapper-producer to focus in the studio.
West co-produced a number of tracks on Madonna's new album, "Rebel Heart," and the pop icon said she had to reel in the outspoken performer at times.
"Just think about his personality, which is engaging," she said with a smile during a recent interview. "He's highly intelligent and very aware about what's going on in the world Wholesale New York Jets Jerseys , easily distracted, sometimes it was hard to get him to focus because he's like Mr. Multi-tasker and he's got a lot of moving parts."
"Sometimes I had to stand in front of the door like this, 'You're not going anywhere! We have to finish this song right now,'" she added, folding her arms.
Madonna's sternness worked: her 13th album, "Rebel Heart Wholesale New York Giants Jerseys ," released Tuesday, is one of her most critically acclaimed efforts in years. T
