Without oxygen, a fire cannot be sustained; similarly, without the global mass media, terrorism could not exist. The “global mass media” is a recent phenomenon, having found its globalization through radio, television, and the Internet. Additionally, news outlets such as CNN, BBC, Sky News, ITN, PRI, Al Jazeera, and so on have succeeded in breaking through as “international” news media outlets. Together with the Internet, such organizations have unleashed a global news network. In a worldwide economy, terrorism cannot exist without propaganda, the tool through which the fear of terror is propagated.
4. Terrorism is an unlawful act usually perpetrated across international boundaries with the intent to frighten, intimidate, or destroy. 5. Terrorism is often deployed under asymmetrical circumstances of manpower, resources, strength, and weaponry. In other words, terrorist tactics are an admission of being in a weak position politically, militarily, materially, or even philosophically. 6. Terrorism involves a tactical plan to maximize a climate of fear with a minimum reduction of resources and force structure.
9. Terrorism is secretive and clandestine in nature and is fueled through money laundering and illicit activities, such as drugs, prostitution, theft, robbery, and so on. In short, terrorists believe that the end always justifies the means and therefore have little or no moral compunction. 10. Terrorist groups are cavalier and foster the “black and white” notion that only their “cause” is just, which leaves them inept and incapable of tolerance for opposing views, and usually doomed for extinction.
