Annotation: AN OVERVIEW OF THE WORLD TERRORISM SITUATION, WITH PARTICULAR ATTENTION GIVEN TO U.S. FOREIGN POLICY AND DOMESTIC POLICY DESIGNED TO DEAL WITH TERRORIST ACTS.
Abstract: THE MEANS OF COMBATTING TERRORISM ARE IDENTIFIED AS INTELLIGENCE, PHYSICAL SECURITY OF TARGET INSTALLATIONS AND PEOPLE, THE APPREHENSION AND PUNISHMENT OF TERRORISTS, AND CAUSE REMOVAL. THE U.S. POLICY ON NEGOTIATING WITH TERRORISTS IS ADAMANTLY NO NEGOTIATIONS. THE AUTHOR BELIEVES THAT THE POLICY HAS BEEN EFFECTIVE. UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS BY THIS COUNTRY TO ELICIT INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE FAILED. SEVERAL EXPLANATIONS FOR THIS FAILURE ARE GIVEN. ALTHOUGH TERRORISM HAS NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL ON THE WHOLE, THE AUTHOR PERCEIVES THE THREAT OF TERRORISM, COMPOUNDED BY ACCESS TO NEW AND POWERFUL WEAPONS, TO BE SUFFICIENTLY GREAT TO WARRANT THE EXPENDITURE OF ADDITIONAL RESOURCES.
