  • Terrorism In 21st Century Adapting Itself To A More Hostile Environment

    2075 words, 9 pages

    Terrorism can be defined as the use of violence against civilians in order to achieve political goals. Unlike other forms of protest, such as strikes and peaceful demonstrations, terrorist acts always involve violence or the threat of violence. Terrorism differs from an act of war against enemy soldiers or military targets because its targets are non combatants or civilians. In addition, terrorism is different from criminal acts or random forms of violence because its goals are political; concerned with how a state is governed or how its people are treated. Terrorism has changed a great deal s

    Although many State security agendas use the basis of the attacks of September 11, 2001 to combat terrorism, terrorism is not a new phenomenon. Terrorism often has deep historical roots (Sens and Stoett 2009). Over time it has evolved and changed so much that one cannot pinpoint a clear definition of terrorism. It is argued that terrorists target civilians with the intent to incite fear in the general population for political or religious purposes (Imre et al. 2008). The consistency upon all forms of terrorist acts is in its intent to impose violence and harm to civi

    Terrorism is the systematic use of terror, especially as a means of coercion. In the international community, however, terrorism has no universally agreed, legally binding, criminal law definition. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror), are perpetrated for a religious, political or, philosophical goal; and intentionally target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians). The word "terrorism" is politically and emotionally charged, and this greatly compounds the difficulty of providing a prec

It was widely believed that terrorism was an answer to injustice. Some believed that terrorist were just people driven to take desperate measures by miserable conditions: poverty, hopelessness, or even oppression. So the only way to understand terrorism is to understand its sources. This means to deal with the sorrow and frustration of the terrorist, rather than just trying to suppress them with force.

These terms are often used as political labels, to condemn violence or the threat of violence by certain actors as immoral, indiscriminate, unjustified or to condemn an entire segment of a population.[20] Those labelled "terrorists" rarely identify themselves as such, and typically use other euphemistic terms or terms specific to their situation, such as separatist, freedom fighter, liberator, revolutionary, vigilante, militant, paramilitary, guerrilla, rebel or any similar-meaning word

One would have heard of the cliché ‘One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter’ . As such, we clearly see that we are comparing an item (in this case – terrorism) on two extremely different grounds. Why is this so? Is it because the actions of a freedom fighter actually overlap the actions of a terrorist, or is it because of the other way round? If the actions of a freedom fighter are similar to that of a terrorist, then is the Great Mahatma Gandhi who
