Generally, human history is implicated in crisis, and instances of unresolved ones dot the landscape of human history. There are some crises that threaten global peace, and often lead to social disequilibrium. One of such is terrorism. Terrorism continues to plague the global peace. Terrorism is not a natural phenomenon. It is man-made. Unjust social structures create the environment for terrorism to thrive. 9/11 attacks on the U.S. had grave lethal implications. In the wake of the attack, the U.S. has continued to pursue global counterterrorism. Descriptive survey was used explore historical data on the 9/11 attacks. Data analysis used was content analysis using the tool of textual argumentation. Methodological framework under which the study was done is class theory of terrorism. The results of the findings reveal that the U.S. counterterrorism is inflexible. It requires the rejigging of its approaches in order for it to come to terms with contemporary realities. The conclusion arrived at is that once the war on global poverty is won then terrorism will die a natural death, since global terrorism is fostered by ideological warfare between democracy and Islam. It was recommended that the United Nations must rise to the challenge of forging world peace.
