Terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives. It targets ethnic or religious groups, governments, political parties, corporations, and media enterprises. Terrorism that occurs throughout the world is known as global terrorism. It is probably the worst type of crime that ever exists. Not only does it kill people, it destroys livelihoods, economies, and civilized world order that took millennia to form. The results of terrorism are almost always catastrophic. Individuals or groups that commit these crimes are called terrorists. Terrorists exist all over the world. There are a few that operate alone, but mostly they are part of one of many global organizations. .
It is almost impossible to track down these dangerous criminals because they keep such a low profile that no one can single them out from the regular public. There have been countries that have harbored terrorism worldwide, especially in the Middle East. There have been numerous events that led to disaster and eventually war. Most terrorist organizations are radical fundamentalists who commit terror in the name of their religion. What makes them so dangerous is that they are unpredictable and their willingness to die for their religion. .
Terrorism is the single greatest threat to the United States Government. The U.S. has suffered great loses in its history to terrorism, especially its interests in other countries. The U.S. greatest enemies are Islamic terrorists. The radicals believe that all non-Muslims in the world must die and that they are infidels. Although all their beliefs are not true in Islam, they think it is and try to make non-Muslims believe the same. Their beliefs are so strong that some commit suicide while killing dozens of people. They are known as suicide bombers, the most dangerous of all because they are so unpredictable.
