The research question guiding this research is “What factors of the military drawdown might affect terrorism?” This research aims to prove the hypothesis that a quick and untimely military drawdown will result in an increase in terrorism. Cost reduction in military support is a major factor affecting military drawdown and therefore the independent variable considered in this research is this cost reduction in military funding to support war activities while the dependent variable is the increase in terrorism.Many analysts, State that the US war in Iraq and Afghanistan affected the American economy. At the basic levels, the US economist states that the war affected Iraq and Afghanistan more than it affected the US economy since these two countries received massive loss from the war. The military force posted in Iraq and Afghanistan cause a greater loss to the two countries than the war cause2. Some of the citizens of the two countries suffered socially, economically and also psychologically. Most of the Middle East women were raped with the military force and other killed in the name of looking for terrorists. The young children till this day have psychological effects.Since, the children saw people killed, and other slaughtered. The US military force did not cause terror but also the forces also brought aid to the two countries .the aid includes medicine and free education. The citizen of these two countries faced more losses than the benefits the American soldiers brought. The military claimed the wanted to remove dictators from the countries. Many reporters claim the United States had other agendas but not yet proved. About half of the populations were treated from war injuries, and other taught the American cultures. But the rest of the population received severe treatment from the American soldiers.According to the 9/11 terror on the American soil, the US sent new military forces on many occasion. The cost of this military expedition caused the United States a lot of money. In September 2002 the economy advisor of the white house, Lindsey estimated a total of 100 billion dollars to 200 dollars which affected the American budget. 50 billion to 60 billion was added to the expense sometimes later. Not only that United States of America was affected, Iraq was also affected since its development was diminished with the war. Other countries that invested
