Even when their attempts for “change” are fruitless they resist disbanding to remain with their friends. There is proof that for some groups terrorism isn’t the last choice but the first. Some terror attacks are committed anonymously so how would that bring about any change. Unlike politicians who want to achieve change, terrorist refuse to compromise minimizing any possibility of archiving their goals. Finally, terrorist fight other terrorists, instead of acting like political entities they act more like rival
The nation can only protect itself to a certain extent but when it comes to terrorist they cannot protect themselves from such people so it is the duty of National Security to step in and to do so they use certain procedures like torture to gain information from the terrorists. If National Security did not use torture to retrieve some of the information it has, then many citizens would be in danger because of timed bombing, assassinations and planned attacks. Not using torture only makes it difficult for National Security to attain information because nobody would be afraid of the treatment they would receive from withholding important information and not only making it difficult but the process of attaining the information without using torture would take longer and for all we know there could be a ticking bomb. Torture is an advanced interrogation technique and people need to understand this. The world is developing and techniques will always change and become better just like technology does.
World War II is said to be the worst conflict in human history. About fifty to eighty million people died all together. There were concentration camps run by the Germans and there were essentially two wars raging. The two wars were the war in Europe and the war in the Pacific, which was Japan against the United States. World War II went on for six years and would destroy more land and property around the world and kill more people than any other war before.
Name_ Farid Shahbalayev Class_ WRIT 100 Writing #5_ Argumentative Essay _ Does Poverty Cause Terrorism? Word_ 1142 How many times will people hear the sounds of bombs and how many innocence will be killed until someone finds the way of stopping the terrorism? It even seems impossible whether one day people can realize their hopes of a world free of terrorism. Although it is hard to give a precise definition to the term of “terrorism”, most qualified experts define it as the use of violence against civilians or government in order to achieve particular political goals.1 But still this correlation also might be argued because there are some other reasons why terrorism grows faster and faster. The reason why terror attacks happen is not only to influence government decisions or legislation.
Recent discoveries show, “Of 134 jihadist-inspired terrorists who have carried out or plotted attacks here since 9/11, 96 were U.S. citizens” (Jenkins). In the United States there has been a serious rise in domestic terrorism, however the government refuses to acknowledge it. Instead their focus has been abroad, rightly so in some cases, while more domestic attacks make headline news. The change in visa laws does nothing, because since 9/11 86% of the terror attacks have been plotted or carried out by American citizens. Therefore, the United States needs to step up its efforts to combat domestic terrorism because the jail time is too short for current terrorists, there are no true task forces for current attacks, and there has been an increase of these groups and attacks.
De Nacht der langen Messer (The night of the long knives) is another example and was a purge that took place in Germany in which Nazi soldiers carried out numerous political homicides on 77 leading figures of the left-wing Strasserist faction of the Nazi Party. The night of the long knives (often called operation hummingbird) was carried out swiftly and harshly to “punish” the politicians for being conservative anti-Nazi. A last definite point is that Hitler used gaseous euthanasia to quickly and cheaply execute the Jews he held in his concentration camps. People were put into the gassing chambers and then killed with carbon monoxide. An estimated 120,000 people were killed (punished) through the Nazi "Euthanasia" engagements.
Thus, if an actor wishes to change the stance of another actor it will do so by influencing their opinion. The importance of terrorist groups is unquestionable; their impact is greater in parts of the country where the government is at its lowest. What role do these groups have on politics?

The rise of terrorist groups is most known to be established when a weak government is unable to sustain itself and thus it opens up to anyone willing to take the power.
Without being provided with clear answers, many people decided to take the matter into their own hands and seek the truth for themselves, causing the development of the infamous JFK conspiracy theories. The theory claims more people conspired than just Oswald, and the “magic bullet” government investigators used to explain the strike on Kennedy and Governor Connally is impossible. According to a poll conducted by FiveThirtyEight.com, 61% of 5,130 Americans
Journalists have to face the issues of physical endangerment because they report to dangerous destinations and receive death threats. In the time since 1992, there have been 1,785 journalists killed overseas. The physical endangerment comes from all kinds of “militant extremists and criminal gangs who abduct and kill reporters, combined with rising government repression in the cause of counterterrorism, has created the biggest threat to journalism in recent times” (Gladstone).
Over the years, The Auschwitz Concentration camp has become synonymous with death, inhumanity, and evil. This particular camp was the largest mass murder site in human history. The camp claimed victims of all ethnicities, but Jews were the main group that the Nazis were trying to eradicate. Out of the many concentration camps set up by the regime, Auschwitz was the most lethal one of them all. Millions of people that the Nazis considered to be imperfect were brutally killed in this camp.
America has gone through difficult times with war, but has gone through harder times with the war on terror. Terrorism is defined as the use of terror or threat.

Another change is the view on certain racial groups, especially people of Islamic descent. “Anti-Islamic violence in America jumped after the attacks. According to the FBI, 28 hate crimes committed in 2000 were found to be anti-Islamic”(Villemez). The outlook on the entire race is very bleak in comparison to what it was previous to 9/11. The measures taken by the government to try to improve national security will only continue to rise as more and more threats

After forcing many Jews to leave, only around 250,000 Jewish people remained in Germany; therefore, Hitler executed his Final Solution, which was "a policy of genocide, the deliberate and systematic murder of an entire population (Danzer et al. 544)." Jewish people were relocated to concentration, labor, and death camps. There, millions of Jews and other targeted groups were shot, starved, overworked, and gassed. Jews were the most victimized group in the Holocaust, but Hitler also targeted gypsies, Jehovah 's Witnesses, freemasons, and homosexuals (Danzer et al 548).
