External Terrorism in Great Britain and the United States.
It stems from many sources: religion, racial hatred, anarchy, perceived governmental alliances, living conditions, political agendas, etc In both the United States and Great Britain, there have been many lives lost and important resources and infrastructure destroyed by terrorism. In each instance, there have been fanatics of one sort or another. Ranging from those that believe that they are Holy Warriors to those that believe that the world should be racially pure and devoid of any, "mongrelized races." These groups and individuals are not limited to being foreigners that have a grudge, but they can also be people from right in our own backyard, possibly even the neighbor next door or the child we raised. There are no limitations on who can become a terrorist, nor of where they will come from to initiate their attacks. The only limitations are the ones that we place on ourselves in the false hope that we can control, prevent or mitigate anything that these deviants do to further their cause.
In the United States the majority of terrorism seems to be external. A lot of it is directed at us because of our alliances with Israel and other Middle Eastern cultures and governments; and with the general hatred which is so prevalent with the conflict of have vs. have-not groups of people. With the United States as one of the most targeted nations on the face of the earth, it is no wonder that we have become paranoid about the countries that surround the Middle Eastern region of the world. The vast majority of all attacks on the United States originate in the Middle East. Organizations such as Hamas, Abu Nidal, Hizballah, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the Palestine Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and specifically al-Qaeda have targeted United States interests during the past 50 years. The most recent of these was the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York City as well as the attempted destruction of the Pentagon that took place on September 11, 2001.
