The U.S. anti-terror approaches have brought more tension than security, while creating animosity in the world, said a Kenya-based scholar in an interview with Xinhua recently.
"I think the U.S. style of fighting terrorism in the world has brought about more tension than security, because their kind of approach has been vengeance," said Stephen Ndegwa, a lecturer at the United States International University-Africa.
Ndegwa added that the U.S. self-centeredness has not only harmed its own interests, but dragged the world into an insecure situation.
He also called on the U.S. to "be more introspective and admit that their policies have played a great role in creating an unjust society."
