Terrorists, on the other hand, regard it as a means to an end. Third, the protection of critical infrastructure must, to the extent possible, be accomplished through a civilian benefits maximization strategy. We would like to thank our Professor as well as the teaching assistant, Cynthia Chong, for their invaluable guidance. Many a times words like terrorism, insurgency, civil war, revolution, guerilla war, intimidation and extremism are often used interchangeably. Exports of dual-use chemical and biological equipment should be controlled and export laws harmonised. Dando of the University of Bradford United Kingdom has singled out three examples of potential misuse of modern biotechnology and genetic engineering: the enhancement of bacterial and viral virulence, heterologous gene expression and protein engineering of toxins, and genetic weapons.
The discipline of economics has many concepts that are relevant to an understanding of terrorism -- supply and demand -- costs. Currently, few international efforts have been undertaken with the specific goal of controlling information terrorism. For instance, cyberspace itself may become the battleground. Indeed, most domestic laws define terrorism as requiring violence or the threat to or the taking of human life for political or ideological ends. There is another aspect that inexorably links infrastructure and security. In conclusion, terrorism is a form of violence that encourages the use of weapons and tactics in particular situations or even campaigns of terrorism. As we have seen, terrorists are more likely to use industrial chemical poisons or biological agents than nuclear devices.
Passive defences should be combined with active defences, such as technologies to track attackers, discourage them or disable their equipment. In India, terrorism struck in the recent past in one form or another, especially in Punjab, Assam, Darjeeling and other States. There has been a piece of technology developed for nearly every aspect in our daily lives, and it has become a necessity. The study reported that members of Al-Qaeda were developing a series of new encryption software in response to. Instead, it appears that, Pakistan is hell bent upon annihilating its parent neighbour. The pre invasion statistics shows that there were just 25 worldwide whereas post invasion there was a drastic increase in attacks to 200 per year.
After all, social media is a valuable intelligence resource that's out in the open. Terrorism has been around for thousands of years but the term was not developed until the French Revolution. The creation of light man portable automatic weapons with high speed of fire, portable fire, missiles and malleable, highly destructive plastic explosives like Semtex have supplied the terrorist with some strong fire power. For instance, great practitioners of fear and violence like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao etc cannot be called Terrorists. However, the collaboration of technologies in our lives has a few negative effects and I think we need to scale back a bit on our use of these much adored technologies. These people are directly being sponsored by a neighbouring country.
Such a tragic situation has been created that, these people are rendered homeless in their own country and outsiders doing it all with such impunity. Terrorism is a notoriously slippery concept and its definition has been hotly contested. Along your journey to exam readiness, we will: 1. Sensor networks are required to detect and characterize dangerous materials, particularly when they are airborne. This is because the government has infinitely greater financial resources, access to scientific laboratories and engineering production facilities and a variety of scientists and engineers to rely on in establishing technology and equipment for military and security purposes.
In particular, local authorities must have an effective voice in setting the technical agenda for equipment for which they are the customer. An example of long-range, basic research that could be highly beneficial would be the discovery of olfactory biosensors than can reach dog levels of sensitivity, some 10,000 times that of humans. Terrorism takes violence to an extreme level with no logical reason, or methodology. In the Middle East small Palestinian Marxist-Leninist groups skyjacked civilian airliners in dramatic and well-publicized attacks that brought world attention to the Palestinian national cause. People have many different ways of evaluating these changes.
For these reasons, the strategy for maximizing civil benefits deserves high-priority attention. Source 20 shows the number of terrorist attack incidents and fatalities from the 1st of October 1998 through to the 8th of November 2006. Therefore, with the vulnerability of modern, pluralistic societies to terrorist attacks , it is vital to point out that at least one contributory indirect use of terrorism is the failure of those governments and agencies that are likely targets to take enough proactive and passive measures to protect them. Numerous prevention techniques have been developed to address this problematic threat. In some ways, it is difficult to believe previous generations lived adequately without it. Such a definition now includes now everyone who plans violent acts in the United Kingdom, even if they are staged abroad.
When necessary, active measures, such as counter-attacks to disable or destroy equipment and software should be adopted. Another area of concern in the near future is that of agroterrorism. Terrorist groups now have now different motivations, organisation, structures , and tools. Images were created through a series of dots, inside which were strings of letters and numbers that computers could read to recreate the images. Steps should be taken to tackle the situation peacefully. The number of terrorists possessing the right characteristics are is therefore limited. How have these trends impacted on the ways in which counter terrorism has responded in the Australian context? Recently, Sudan has remained cooperative with the United States in its war on counter terrorism.
But, I was wrong; we found a lot of things to cover. The attack on Parliament in India on December 13, 2001 or the attack on the Legislative Assembly in Jammu and Kashmir on October 1, 2001 or the attack on American Information Centre in Kolkata on January 22, 2002 were all handiworks of terrorists. The inhuman massacre of innocent human beings reveals the sadistic indulgent of anti-social, anti-human and anti-peace, violence loving distorted individuals under the false garb of Islam or Jehad. These attacks have reportedly generated actual damage only in the form of temporary disruption of services, public inconveniences, or financial loss. Thesis: Although terrorism has caused most of the world to increase their security, it still seems to not be enough to make the world safe, Therefore the U. Terrorism has been used in the past. For instance, the establishment of television satellite connections and international communication networks has made it easy for terrorists to depend their propaganda of actions around the world at the shortest time.
