Question and answer
Explain why terrorism is different today.
"In the past, some terrorist organisations were clearly identified and known to us. [ Many of the earlier terrorist groups were often based on secular nationalist movements such as the early Palestinian groups and many of these groups took credit for their attacks. Claiming credit for attacks, such as hijackings of airplanes and hostage takings, enabled these groups to broadcast their political
grievances to a broader audience. Their use of the media (the television) allowed us to see the perpetrators of terror attacks. Today, however, we do not know who the terrorists are, except that they include a myriad of loosely knit groups, cells, and individuals inspired by the al-Qaeda movement but operate independently. ]

Can we simplify a "typical" terrorist?
Weegy: A terrorist could be anyone.. A "typical" terrorist is usually seen as a young/middle aged male Muslim... The problem with that is that they aren't the only people who are terrorists.. [ and if people only look at the Muslim ones because of a stereotype... A LOT of guilty people could get away with doing terrible things. When racial profiling is used to catch criminals, those you profile are the only ones ] (More)

Explain why some countries see terrorism as having appealing attributes as an instrument of war.
Weegy: Some countries, some societies, and some religions still have the barbaric roots that most humans came from. World war I and II convinced the western world that two opposing countries killing civilians is bad for both. [ The countries that sponsor terrorism - prime examples being Pakistan and Iran - don't see it this way. They use the Geneva convention as shields against them being attacked while they attack and kill civilians of their opponents for political gain. The sad thing is that we in the west are not ready to treat them symmetrically. ] (More)
