Question description

As discussed in the previous studies by Combs, apply your knowledge of typologies of terrorist attacks to the following assignment.

  1. On pages 15-16 of Chapter One in the text are four brief sketches of what were termed by some observers to be terrorist acts.                                                
  2. Use the four criteria in the definition of terrorism suggested in this chapter to decide which two of these four incidents were, in fact, terrorist acts.                                                
  3. Try also to decide which type of terrorism, if any, was involved, using any one of the typologies mentioned (pages 12-13).                                                
  4. In a 200-300 word essay, elaborate on the definition and the typologies of terrorism.                                                
  5. Make sure to answer all questions in detail and cite your sources.                                                
  6. Follow APA guidelines.

The 4 sketches below:

1. In November 2003, a U.S. transport plane carrying soldiers
engaged in peacekeeping and nation building in postwar Iraq was shot down by a surface-to-air missile.
 Sixteen of these soldiers, who were being transported to planes to take them on the first stage of their journey home for a brief leave, were killed. Iraqi groups seeking for a brief leave, were killed. Iraqi groups seeking to force the United States out of their country claimed responsibility for the attack.                       2. In April 2011, a U.S. unmanned drone attack killed at least 25 people in Pakistan’s North Waziristan region. The dead included 3 women and 4 children, as well as 18 suspected militants.
3. Just before dawn on October 23, 1983, a vehicle laden with about 2,500 tons of TNT blew up the U.S. Marine headquarters near the Beirut, Lebanon, airport Around 230 people were reported killed, most of them as they slept. The Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement claimed responsibility for the action.
 4. In April 1999, an attack by two students at Columbine High School in a suburb of Denver, Colorado, resulted in the deaths of 15, while more than 20 people were wounded, some of them critically. The attackers, identified as Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, both juniors at the school, reportedly laughed and hooted as they opened fire on classmates after they had booby-trapped the school with pipe bombs. Harris and Klebold were members of a group calling itself the Trenchcoat Mafia, outcasts who bragged about guns and bombs, and hated Blacks, Hispanics, and student athletes.
