• Theft from a research laboratory, hospital, or public health service laboratory, where agents are cultivated for diagnostic purposes. • Isolation and culturing of a desired agent from natural sources. • Obtaining biological agents from a rogue state, a disgruntled government scientist, or a state sponsor. Radiological Terrorism. It is quite possible for the terrorist to disperse radiological material in an effort to contaminate a target population or a distinct geographic area.The material could be spread by radiological dispersal devices (RDD) like dirty bombs, etc.
Even if his motives were good, he used methods such as terrorism to attempt to stop the proslavery force’s spread, which stirred the pot, and made the clash between free-soilers and proslavery forces an even uglier fight than before. Fergus Bordewich has written seven nonfiction books, such as “Washington: The Making of the American Capital” and, according to Fergus Bordewich (2009) in his internet article, “Day Of Reckoning”, Bordewich summarizes that John Brown decided that terrorism and guerilla warfare would work against the proslavery forces, so Brown attacked proslavery settlers at Pottawatomie Creek, killing five, so in turn, because of the unjustified attack on the settlers, a band composed of proslavery forces killed a few citizens, including Brown’s son Frederick, and burned down the antislavery town of Osawatomie. The men Brown and his men killed were not even involved in the sack of Lawrence, which motivated Brown to attack in the first place. According to Bordewich, (2009), “A party of Free-Staters led by Brown dragged five pro-slavery men out of their isolated cabins on eastern Kansas’ Pottawatomie Creek and hacked them to death with cutlasses. The horrific nature of the murders
They use violence to have a change in politics. The similarity between terrorists and criminals is their target. They do not think about which one is combatant or which one is civilians.

For many years, the US Government has used basic interrogation techniques in order to force information out of prisoners and terrorists. However, after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the US Government initiated what they called “Enhanced Interrogation”. They initiated this process with the goal in mind to get more information out of terrorists or potential terrorists for the prevention of future attacks. No matter how controversial the methods, the CIA’s new methods may have good intentions, but proved ineffective when it mattered most. One method of interrogation used that most people are familiar with is a technique called “waterboarding”.
Terrorism is a huge problem in the United States and all around the world. It is a federal offense that ends with the death penalty--or at least it should. In fact, the exact definition of terrorism is, “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” From a worldly perspective, Batman represents the government, and the Joker represents terrorists. Since the government should put terrorists to death, Batman should do the same to the Joker. It’s crazy how society takes more action on imaginary scenarios rather than real-life situations.
Decision about whether to capture or kill a terrorist leaders is dependent upon the goals that the states aim to achieve. Capturing of a terrorist leader depicts the thought that he is a criminal authorised to a legal hearing. On the other hand, killing him is treating him as a challenger to the state’s peace. Thus this settlement depends upon the counterterrorism policies created by national rulers.

The international press uses various metaphors and frames such as ‘Islamic Terrorism’, ‘Muslim terrorist’ and radical Muslim’ to propagate islampohobia; maligning the image of the entire Muslim community. These conscious efforts on the part of media leads to increasing need of surveillance and security, where different methods of racial profiling are used by the police against
Violence Begets Violence With terrorism being such a frequently used ubiquitous term, it is in utmost consequence to define the term accurately. How we understand the connotation of terrorism can determine how we choose to actively respond to it. Terrorism as defined by the CIA is “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents. Those who employ terrorism, regardless of their specific secular or religious objectives, strive to subvert the rule of law and effect change through violence and fear.”(CIA) Thus, terrorism is a tactic using violence to achieve a goal usually political or social. Violence is “is force used in a way that is morally wrong or that causes
American Security Post 9/11 After going through the immeasurable shock and horror of the 9/11 attacks, Americans have joined together to create a more secure nation than existed previously. “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America.
