Information on Fighting Terrorism
One of the global challenges today is the war on terrorism. There are a variety of means and methods available to the war on terrorism, one of which is conventional military force.
There are other approaches to the war on terrorism beyond the military, such as preventing financing, enforcing laws, using political and economic measures to cut organizations off from their supporters, and infiltrating counterterrorism agents into terrorist organizations in order to expose them.
There are a variety of entities involved in the war on terrorism, among them military, internal security, judicial and economic bodies. Many states have established units especially to fight terrorism, whose duties include counterterrorism and fighting in real time.
Science and technology can also help in the war on terrorism because the global terrorism environment is constantly changing and the terrorist organizations become more sophisticated as they exploit technical innovations to increase their threat.
