The topic is tremendously broad. To even attempt to approach the Endless War in its entirety, the work must be a book. The Long War by Professor Andrew Bacevich is an excellent start. It is, of course, referenced extensively. It is hard to pick one of Bacevich's many books, because they all have something different to add to the discussion.

As I said the topic is so incredibly broad and covers so many different areas of American politics, defense capabilities and actions, espionage, history, international politics, etc. that you are going to have to read extensively and from many different sources to be able to form a truly defensible thesis about the war's nature, the motivations behind it and who it benefits.

I have been at this for twelve years and I have read at least 100 books that wrestle with the topic, as well as countless articles and essays. There is no lack of material, you just need to get busy reading.
