Introduction to Homeland Security: The Roots of Terrorism Today

In a two to three
page paper (not including the cover page, abstract page and reference page),
discuss the following:

Please pick a terrorist attack found in today’s current events
and explain it in terms of one or more of the reasons listed in below:

  • Prior conflicts
    among nation-states persist, and patience to resolve them is growing thin
    (e.g., the creation of Israel has resulted in ongoing tensions in the Middle

  • The end of the
    Cold War resulted in resurgence of deep-seated ethnic or political rivalries (e.g.,
    Chechnya desires autonomy and independence from Russia)

  • Western forms of
    economic development have not materialized in many nations around the world and
    poverty may be associated with terrorist activities (e.g., the poor nations
    fifty years ago are predominately the poor countries today and they are the
    breeding grounds for terrorist organizations)

  • Citizens are
    frustrated with the harsh living conditions of dictatorship or the
    unresponsiveness of certain democratic governments (e.g., they desire political
    change and think that their needs are not being met in an expeditious manner)

  • Some religious and
    social movements have become more extreme over time (e.g., fundamentalist
    Muslims and other interest groups want change now and are willing to promote it
    through violent behavior)

  • US military power
    and involvement in Iraq has angered many Arabs (e.g., those in the Middle east
    view American presence as a new form of colonialism)

  • It is extremely
    difficult for intelligence analysts to know who the “enemy” is (e.g., how can
    one pinpoint a terrorist when they often blend into the crowd?)

  • Technology and
    education will allow terrorists to develop and use more sophisticated weapons
    (e.g., household chemicals can be used to make bombs)

  • We cannot protect
    all of the potential targets that the terrorists could attack (e.g., government
    buildings, ports, shopping malls, schools)

  • Training and preparedness
    for terrorism response is inadequate (e.g., we do not know enough about how to
    deal with poisonous substances used by terrorists)

Your paper must be
formatted in accordance with APA guidelines.

Must use at least 2 references.
