Terrorism Essay, Research Paper Terrorism 1)It is very difficult to resolve the international problem of terrorism for several major reasons. Terrorists usually don’t claim responsibility for their actions until the fuse is lit, it’s not a case of Jack The Ripper sending an ear to the cops and warning them who his next victim will be. Terrorists usually do claim responsibility for their actions after the media is aware that something happened, this gains recognition for their cause, which is often the reason they resort to terrorism in the first place. These groups are often underground and individuals rarely step forward, how can you arrest an entire group that you can’t touch? Governments endorsing terrorist acts and providing a safe house for them once they’re on

the run just adds to the problem. Hijackers can take their hostages, get the ransom and fly the plane to the country of their choice. That country is usually ready to welcome the criminal, for a small cut of the ransom. Algeria used terrorism as a business to raise capital. By providing immunity, they became a haven for terrorists. Many Middle Eastern countries resort to terrorism when dealing with other nations. Saudi Arabia sponsors Islamic terrorists to lay siege to Egypt. Terrorism is a means of influencing international relations. How can you prevent acts of terrorism when those paid to protect the people are among the guilty? The Ku Klux Klan is a prime example of police corruption and a government that turned its’ back on its’ people. Dirty cops and prejudicial

governments provided the fuel that burnt black churches of the Southern States in the past . Many white citizens were not members of the Ku Klux Klan, but most whites were reluctant to take a stand against the Klan until the KKK’s acts of violence began to threaten whites who were not white supremacists. When whites began to oppose the Klan, they went underground and were thought to have disbanded but they arose again before the first war and once more during the civil rights movements of the 1960’s. This problem has arose again as Negro churches have again been targeted by arsonists. The police have been unable to solve the majority of these crimes. Hitler and his Nazi Regime could possibly be the worst example of a government applying acts of terrorism on its people. When

those at the top are corrupt, how can the people defend themselves? Hitler’s methods and ideologies have made him one of the most feared and hated men in history. Stalin also used acts of terrorism on his people. His death squads that patrolled the streets at night and annihilated the homeless was supposedly done for a good cause. I think that is very questionable. Negotiating with terrorists can also be bewildering. Recently Prime Minister John Major of Britain and Prime Minister John Bruton of Ireland were engaging in peace talks with the Irish political party Sinn Fein. Sinn Fein is the oldest Irish political party and has been striving for the independence of Ireland for years. They were founded in 1905 and have representatives in every major Irish town, they are considered

to be the political wing of the Irish Republican Army. Sinn Fein claims to have genuinely sought after peace but continuing British bad faith has caused the IRA to act. The British deny these accusations of bad faith and became puzzled when the IRA broke a long standing cease fire with a bombing in the urban center of Manchester. Negotiations can be impossible in the case of suicide bombers. Many Japanese Cults can not be traced. Though their agents are always caught, they can never be questioned. Suicide is deemed heroic by the Japanese, the Japanese cult Aum Supreme Truth used sarin nerve gas on a Tokyo subway to cause terror, other previous Japanese cults have committed mass suicide at the order from their leader to avoid interrogation and incarceration. Often these leaders
