attempts to outline unique patterns of political violence and terrorism strategies systematically grouped as "the wave system" (TWS). The research explores over a 135-year period of rebel terror activities where TWS is systematically divided by "The four waves of Modern Terrorism", with each wave lasting 40 years. Extensive research on past events over a long timeline, and wide-ranging research references allows the reader to credit the reliability of the publication. The objective is to illustrate the relationship between international terrorist factions within certain time frames in history. TWS as a model attempts to link contemporary rebel terrorist groups
Modern terrorism, as deduced from this literature, is acts to violence strategically used by secular groups spanning international borders with the aim of achieving a desired outcome. Further, it can be seen as organized activity whose genesis can be traced back to the 1880’s. From then to now there are identifiable traits and patterns observed from different (terrorist) groups which have allowed for the conceptualization of the term modern terrorism. This concept therefore, can be best explained in the context of being a wave or having a life cycle. That means it is a cycle of activity demarked by phases from inception and expands along the way then eventually it declines. The world, thus far, has experienced four waves of modern
Domestic terrorist groups are violent extremists that want to attack the U.S. from the inside. Their intent is to frighten, pressure, and/or influence national principles. Today’s terrorist organizations are using cyberspace to spread their message. Training and online recruitment are also being made available by the Internet and social media websites. Some of the acts are lone-wolf attacks and others are collective attacks. Some examples of domestic terrorist groups that use cyberspace are Army of God, Sovereign Citizens, and Phineas Priesthood. The Southern Poverty Law Center released a report on terrorism, stating that more people have been killed in America by non-Islamic domestic terrorists than jihadists (Henderson, 2015). Terrorist
Ever since 9/11 when both World Trade Center buildings were attacked by an Islamic Group, attacks by Islamic Terrorist on U.S. soil have been less of a threat than Domestic Terrorists. Domestic Terrorism has been shown these passed for years but yet again most of these cases have not been classified as acts of Domestic Terrorism they most likely fall into the category. Now the definition of Domestic Terrorism is basically "the committing of terrorist acts in the perpetrator 's own country against their fellow citizens". Now personally I don 't know how our government is working with these popular cases like Charlottesville, Las Vegas, and a new that just happened recently actually two but I 'll just say one, the New York attack that
Yesterday April 19th,1995 Ex-Army soldier and security guard Timothy McVeigh parked his truck lined with explosives in front of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building downtown Oklahoma City.
Domestic Terrorism can be described as many things. The FBI describes domestic terrorism 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.” People who commit domestic terrorism crimes often have different motives such as: religion, political, and even race. A specific case that resembles this, is the shooting in Las Vegas which occurred on June 8, 2014.
Prior to the terror attacks of September 11th on the twin towers, life was far different than its current regime. The Unites States wasn’t officially involved in any wars, few Americans had ever heard of al-Qaeda or Osama bin Laden, and ISIS was inexistent. We deported half the number of people we do today. Our surveillance state was a fraction of its current size and, astonishingly, you didn’t have to take your shoes off at the airport. The terror attacks prompted new attitudes and concerns about vigilance and safety, bringing forth new policies that prioritized national security and defence like the USA Patriot Act. These new attitudes have shaped the American people into a different state of mind, one that is constantly suspicious of someone of the muslim origin, leaving openings for the unsuspected people, the ones from home.
As a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, most Americans have a general knowledge about terrorism. The U.S. military has been at war for around a decade, continuing the concentration of the media and politicians on Middle Eastern countries and terrorist groups. Consequently, the focus of the nation tends to remain on international terrorist groups rather than domestic terrorist groups. There is a vast amount of terrorism groups in America, including the Army of God, the Aryan Nations, and the Animal Liberation Front, who possess extreme ideals and exist for different reasons. The fact that there are numerous terrorist groups that are composed of American citizens performing tremendous acts of violence within the U.S. seems to go somewhat unnoticed by the general public.
Terrorism exists for centuries. Domestic terrorist groups and domestic terrorism are great problems. They have existed in the past and they will continue to exist in the future to spread fear and terror. Terrorism is the calculated use of violence, or the threat of violence, to intimidate, frighten, or coerce. Terrorism is a global problem affecting all social and economic classes. The fight against domestic terrorism is difficult as there have been many acts of domestic terrorism and many domestic terrorist groups operating in the United States. Terrorism can be executed or presented in a variety of forms. For example, bioterrorism, cyberterrorism, nuclear terrorism, domestic terrorism, etc. Domestic Terrorism has been the focus of attention since the events of September 11. The main and more significant mission of the Department of Homeland Security is to defend the United States from terrorism. Unfortunately, domestic terrorism is becoming increasingly common among
My criminal Justice policy is counterterrorism against Extreme Right Terrorism groups (home grown). Extreme-Right Terrorism- “Domestic right-wing terrorist groups often adhere to the principles of racial supremacy and embrace antigovernment, antiregulatory beliefs. Generally, extremist right-wing groups engage in activity that is protected by constitutional guarantees of free speech and assembly” (Watson, 2002). The research is to focus on stopping people from joining extreme-right terror groups or becoming a “Lone Wolf terrorist”. Because my research is to prevent terrorism the key programs I want to study are the potential subject’s social environment, economic status, education and media to educate the public, better law enforcement training,
The U.S. government takes any attack or threat very seriously. In cases such as this one the government would develop a plan of action to deal with the attacks and find the source to take down any further plans of attack. The government would investigate the background of the decreased perpetrators along with their involvement of homegrown terrorists inspired by al-Qaeda. The background will extend to others members they have been in communication with in the last few years. The government would want to investigate who gave the order for the attacks was it foreign influence or not. Furthermore, governments can “starve” terrorists out by making it extremely difficult to plan, plot, and carry out their attacks, and also by finding ways to gain
What is domestic terrorism?Terrorism is the act of using guns to force their own government or high power to meet their plans to further themselves” (Domestic Terrorism 1). Some examples are the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Oklahoma City Bombing” (Domestic Terrorism 1).Most acts of domestic terrorism is done by an extremist.An extremist is someone who is evry religious and takes action” (Domestic terrorism 1).
Although each case is different and there is a combination of different factors involved in each case, some of the main factors that play a role in those U.S. citizens or U.S. residents who become radicalized and carry out extremist violence are crisis and depravation. In king an Taylor’s article, the factors of crisis or depravation are mentioned in almost all the theories that seek to explain the process of radicalization (King & Taylor, 2013). To understand why would someone commit such acts, it is important to understand what is radicalization and what is homegrown terrorism. Radicalization is when someone of any nation adopts new beliefs in which using violence will be the only way to resolve the problems that the individual or the group that the individual belongs to is facing; and homegrown terrorism is when someone becomes radicalized to exclusively commit terrorist attacks in the terrorist’s own nation (King & Taylor, 2013, pg. 603)(Miller, 2007). Most of the homegrown terrorists, particularly the ones in the U.S., tend to become radicalized when they are going through a major life crisis such as when they lose a job; when they have family issues; when they are going through a transition or drastic change in their life; or when they have been treated unfairly by a particular group (King & Taylor, 2013, pg. 607).
The War on Terror is a military campaign launched by the Bush administration in response to the al-Qaeda 9/11 terrorist attacks. The War on Terror includes The Afghanistan War and the War in Iraq. It added two-trillion dollars debt as the FY 2018 budget.
Violence and terrorism are significant challenges in the world economy today. Terrorism has been in existence since before the beginning of recorded human history. The scope of terrorism and its rates of occurrence have grown significantly in the recent past due to factors such as globalization of commerce, transport of people, and information exchange. Some of the key elements contributing directly to the terrorism problem include the ideological competition and economic challenges these issues may result in cooperative aggression by far flung individuals who are like-minded in their quest for political or social relevance. This report focuses on the social aspects that have contributed to the development of terrorism in Russia’s North Caucasus
