Same Religion, Different Ideology: Strategic vs. Universal/Abstract
It is a mistake to categorize all Islamist terrorist organizations in the same bracket. In James Piazza’s article, “Is Islamist Terrorism More Dangerous?”, Piazza writes about the rising accounts of lethality of terrorist attacks in the contemporary world. Piazza’s study tests a hypothesis that Islamist groups that don’t affiliate with al-Qaeda are not more likely to commit high casualty terrorist attacks than other type of terrorist groups like Hamas. This is because terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda have a typology defined as “universal/abstract

Terrorism can be defined in many ways. In the context of this essay, terrorism is defined as the calculated use of violence or the threat of violence to evoke extreme fear in the community or to intimidate governments in the pursuit of political goals.POST-MODERN TERRORISMWith the decline of communism, terrorist groups, which promoted leftist ideologies, have increasingly been isolated and lacking popular support. Left wing and anarchist violence has been declining, while religious and right wing violence has been increasing. There has also been an increase in terrorism related to nationalist and ethnic separatist struggles. Ethnic terrorists have more staying power than ideologically

Math 104 Fall Final 2017
Global Terrorism is a documented problem the World is dealing with. In the elementary Statistics course we conducted an experiment examining the correlation of multiple aspects to why there has been a rise in terrorism in certain decades. We posed the question “Are there patterns in terrorism across the world through the past several decades?”.
At first glance, we acknowledged that there is a dramatic spike in 2001 with terrorism along with 1985. We see that 2015 the graph is still rising with terrorism and from 2001 after 911 to now there was a steady decline in terrorism in America. The key patterned noticed with the first and second graph

Terrorism is probably the most dangerous and deadliest issue that the world is facing at
the present time. A lot of innocent people die and some get severely hurt as a result of multiple
terrorist attacks. The physical, emotional and moral damages are oftentimes beyond repair and
people are left screaming for justice. However, it is hard to understand the reasons behind their
agenda whether it is for the common good of mankind or merely for selfish reasons. One thing
is certain though terrorism is destructive and puts humans in an agonizing situation.
Terrorism in its broadest term can be defined as the unlawful use of violence, force and
threats to intimidate or coerce for

Why The Innocent?
What makes terrorism hard to classify is due to the fact most countries have their own definition and classification of the word. Terrorism is defined by the FBI as “Perpetrated by individuals and/or groups inspired by or associated with primarily U.S.-based movements that espouse extremist ideologies of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.” (FBI) Compared to the United Nations definition. Which is, “Any action, in addition to actions already specified by the existing conventions on aspects of terrorism, the Geneva Conventions and Security Council resolution 1566 (2004), that is intended to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non

Over the past Century, terrorism has evolved from random killings to massive plans for terrorist groups. From the Trade Center bombing, to the September 11th attack in 2002, the United States had endured more than enough of its share of terrorism, and to this day continues to suffer.The first real wake-up call occurred on February 26, 1993. The main conspirator, Ramzi Yousef, was first discovered with partner Abu Barra under fake passports (under the alias of Mohammed Jamal Khalifa) Both were arrested, but due to the fact that INS holding cells were overcrowded, Yusef was told to come back in one month, Whereas, Abu Barra was taken into custody on the spot for having luggage containing bomb

The delegation of Iraq advocates for the elimination of terrorism and its destructive violence and hostility toward individuals across the globe, both internally and in Southeast Asia. The United Nations chooses not to universally define terrorism, for “terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization, or ethnic group.” However, any group that exercises terrorism possesses a common strategy and goal: the systematic use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population to thereby bring about a particular political objective.

Terrorism in Syria

There is countless problems in Syria involving the Syrian civil war, and a big part of the problem is innocent civilians being murdered by the hand of “terrorist”. I quote terrorist because the idea of terrorism can be pretty subjective depending on which side you’re representing. The US views groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS as terrorist, however some Middle Eastern countries may disagree, and even support them. The Government in war in Syria has the entire world’s attention and with so many parties fighting for the same land, many bystanders on all sides fall victim to opposing forces trying to force their

"The terrorists have not lost the will or the ability to attack us. The USA PATRIOT ACT is vital to the war on terror and defending our citizens against a ruthless enemy.". This is a direct quote from President Bush about the reauthorization of the PATRIOT ACT. In 2001 our country was delicate, and very vulnerable to terrorism. Violence outside and inside the United States was a major problem. The PATRIOT ACT was formed because of the terroristic activities. It is for the purpose of fighting terrorism in the United States, and overseas. Evidently this Act is not only protecting our countries, but the surrounding ones as well. The PATRIOT ACT is very successful, and extremely necessary

However, living in the middle of a nuclear war would mean to have sleepless nights or days thinking a nuclear bomb can be dropped and everything I own or everyone I knew would be gone forever. Living in a nuclear war would mean to never know when the end of life could be or when the end of a loved one's life could be. We would be all living in the world of fear and the world of the unknown.Living in a nuclear war can be very similar to terrorism or it can be also very different depending on the way it is looked upon. Some of the similarities of terrorism and nuclear war are that both of these can take place anywhere. For example, during 9/11 when the

What does it mean to be an Australian?A major event in my lifetime was the Bali bombing where Australia was targeted in an act of terrorism. This event happened on October 12 2002, and at the time it was the first direct act of terrorism against Australians, we were targeted for the reason being that we had helped the United States of America in the pursuit of Osama bin laden in Iraq. This was exposed when an audio cassette was aired from Osama bin laden himself stating: "You will be killed just as you kill, and will be bombed just as you bomb," "Expect more that will further distress you." This act of terrorism consisted of a single bomb being set off in a nightclub by a suicide bomber

In response to the terrorist acts on September 11 and detrimental effects to the United States of America, President George W. Bush signed the USA Patriot Act into law. This act is formally known as the Uniting and Strengthening America Act by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001. Terrorism can be in any form and is defined as the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

There is a great deal of skepticism as to whether we are currently so dependent on computer technology that it, or the denial of it, could be used to terrorize the average citizen. What could a terrorist do with a computer to instill fear? Would we consider that affecting the power supply to a large portion of the population would cause terror? Would using computers to affect the switching of a rail system and causing a crash be an act of terrorism? Well, potentially yes, but it will surely depend on the scale and will be looked at in terms of the

helpless image of itself. And one more reason to this helplessness is that, the most dreaded and wanted man on earth, Osama Bin laden , might be planning yet another attack on the US of A. Yet another reason of the September 11 attacks might be that, in many of the Muslim eyes , there is a feeling of envy for the wealth , its power and the limelight given to it.After much of the happenings of the September 11 attacks many Muslims want to become moderates . But there need to be encouragement which is easier said than done.Overall, however after the 9>1 attacks the world has changed for the better thanks in large measures of America's leadership . The defeat of Taliban has helped to contain the spread of terrorism .

What motivates and sustains terrorist movements
Word count: 1086
Gus Martin defines terrorism as ‘the unlawful use of, or threatened use, of force or violence against individual or property to coerce and intimidate governments or societies, often to achieve political, religious or ideological objectives’ (2008, P.8). However, there is a great obstacle in allocating a universal definition of terrorism as the motivations differ so broadly from each movement. Similarly, this assertion is further backed up by Alex Alvarez and Ronet Bachman (2013, p.211) as they agree that terrorism ‘defies simple, easy or absolute definition’ as the motivations of terrorist groups range from ‘political

Historic tendency of the region's armed forces to intervene politically under authoritarian regimes or during periods of armed conflict or social instability2.

Increased military spending is essential to keep our society thriving. More counter terrorism training for the new kind of war is needed (Sorrells par 38).

between the president and other members of the executive branch would be recorded or otherwise documented. As a result, we would have fewer records of an administration's activities than we do today.Without executive privilege, the president might have experienced problems in waging a war on terrorism. While Congress and the courts have procedures that can be used to guard sensitive information, both branches of government are unaccustomed to keeping secrets and often find hard to do so.Executive privilege is exactly what it says...a privilege. A privilege is not a right; it can be taken away; however, would it be best to take away executive privilege? The saying, "what someone doesn't know, won't hurt them," can be taken into context when it comes to executive privilege. It protects the nation from things it doesn't need to know. It is the nations best interest to keep executive privilege for the president.

The terrorist attacks to New York and Washington led the Bush Administration to describe terrorism as “the greatest threat to peace in our time.” (Acharya, 2007) It led the UN Security Council to declare terrorism a ‘threat to international peace and security’. (UN resolution 1368) Consequently, there was an increased focus on national security by the world’s superpower, the US and it’s close allies, against the perceived transnational ‘threat of terrorism’.

The Embargo on Cuba should not be lifted. Cuba is one of the biggest violators of international human rights laws. Also, Cuba has a strong involvement in international terrorism. Next is Cuba’s predominant participation in the drug trade. There are countless other crimes broken but these are the main ones, and because of this Cuba is, undeserving of having the embargo lifted and should be prevented at all costs.

“Hiding from Animals” by Helen Macdonald and “Tracking Ivory” by Bryan Christy are talking about two different things. “Hiding from Animals”, talked about observing animal behavior without humans being involved, to see if the animal’s behavior will change. But on the other side, “Tracking Ivory” talked about how human activities are affecting the population of animals, and trading ivory and hunting are killing elephants. Macdonald and Christy agree in their care and love for animals. I believe that the earth is not only for humans, we live with other creatures and they share the earth with us and they have the rights to use the earth resources as we do. The difference is that we have the ability and power to change things on earth.

During his two terms he increased defense spending 35 percent, but sought to improve relations with the Soviet Union. In dramatic meetings with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, he negotiated a treaty that would eliminate intermediate-range nuclear missiles. Reagan declared war against international terrorism, sending American bombers against Libya after evidence came out that Libya was involved in an attack on American soldiers in a West Berlin nightclub.By ordering naval escorts in the Persian Gulf, he maintained the free flow of oil during the Iran-Iraq war. In keeping with the Reagan Doctrine, he gave support to anti-Communist insurgencies in Central America, Asia, and Africa.Overall, the Reagan years saw a restoration of prosperity, and the goal of peace through strength seemed to be within grasp.
