Question Description

In Unit VII, submit your research paper on your chosen domestic pre- and post-9/11 terrorist event. The research paper must be written using the following outline structure:

1. Title page 2. Introduction: In this section, identify the two terrorist events that have been previously selected, and briefly explain why these events serve as good comparison points for evaluating how terrorist activities have evolved over time. This section should be at least one page in length. 3. Pre-9/11 terrorist event: In this section, describe the first terrorist event that is being used for comparison. The description of this terrorist event must include the nature of the event, methods used by the terrorists, and eventual outcome of the event. This section should be at least one page in length. 4. Post-9/11 terrorist event: In this section, describe the second terrorist event that is being used for comparison. The description of this terrorist event must include the nature of the event, methods used by the terrorists, and eventual outcome of the event. This section should be at least one page in length. 5. Terrorist events comparison: In this section, compare and contrast the two terrorist events that were described in the previous sections. Suggested areas for comparison include (1) motivations for attacks, (2) methods of attack, (3) impact on society, and (4) lessons learned from attacks that can be used to develop counterterrorist strategies. You should also discuss how terrorist strategies have evolved from the first event to the second event. This section of the research paper should be at least two pages in length. 6. Summary and conclusions: In this section, summarize the evolution of terrorism based upon the two selected events. This section should be at least one page in length. 7. References: Provide a reference list that is formatted per APA (6th ed.) guidelines.

While the level of detail in each section of the research paper will vary, it is expected that the final paper will be at least six pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. An abstract is not required.

EVOLUTION OF TERRORISM

Evolution of Terrorism

The September 11th terrorist attack in New York was a defining moment for America’s
efforts in fighting terrorism. Just as much, it was also a defining moment on the approaches used
by a terrorist in their activities. As such, it serves as an important landmark for anyone who
wishes to study the evolution of terror activities over the years. Notably, such information would
be critical to understanding the best policies that would significantly aid the country in
countering terrorism activities therein. As the attack influenced American policy on terror, the
intensified war on the activity increased the chances of more dire attacks on the country and its
interests elsewhere. After all, terrorists always have vested interests in countering the activities
of countries they consider to be an adversary to their course (Braithwaite, 2015). Consequently,
the United States has seen an evolution in the approach to terrorism pre and post the 9/11 attacks.
The Centennial Olympic Park Bombing of 1996 serves as an ideal incident that one could
compare to the Orlando Nightclub Shooting of 2016. Other than the twenty-year difference
between the two cases, they are also separated by the September eleventh bombing of the twin
towers in New York. With the advance screening measures implemented after 9/11, it would be
expected that both the sophistication and response to the possible terrorist attack would have
changed in the Orlando Shooting case. Similarly, of interest will be the motivation behind these
two attacks in which it is expected that improved communication technology would have
increased the chances of interaction between the local and transnational terrorist cells.
Ultimately, the solution to terrorism within the local community lies within the improved
understanding of the evolutionary dynamics in terrorism.
