Prof. Anthony Glees from Britain’s University of Buckingham, gave the warning in an interview with Xinhua.
Glees further warned of more killing of people in terror atrocities.
What the United States and other Western countries did in Afghanistan “was in its own terms not a success,” he said.
“That is a direct consequence of the way we fled from Kabul,” Glees added
As an expert on security issue and intelligence, the don believes that the attack on the twin towers in New York in 2001, as well as the rapid victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan, both resulted from America’s massive failures of intelligence.
Following the 9/11 twin-towers attacks, Glees persuaded his university bosses to create Britain’s first faculty for the academic study of intelligence.
` “But I would say that terrorism remains a very significant threat to liberal democracies such as the UK and the democracies of the West,” Glees said, adding that China and Russia and the West were facing a common enemy of terrorism.
According to him, the reason for the declining number of people killed by terror attacks in recent years is largely due to the massive amount of money spent on intelligence and security activity over the past 20 years, rather than the military interventions in Muslim countries.
He said the jury was still out in the search for the reason for America’s failure in Afghanistan.
