Terrorism refers to the systematic and indiscriminate use of acts of violence with an aim of causing terror and fear in order to fulfill certain defined ideological, religious and political ends. For an act to qualify as terrorism, more often, it has an international outlook and effect (Fortna, 2015). Western countries such as the United States of America, France and the United Kingdom have suffered multiple terrorist attacks in the past although they have been at the fore front in the fight against terrorism with limited success (Chapman, 2014).

Critics point out the failure for the western nations to achieve any tangible progress against terrorism and as such argue that the strategy to depend on these nations to end terrorism is flawed. For example, the NATO nations and the US are perceived to primarily target Muslims and Islamic nations in the war on terror hence little support for their activities in nations with Islamic leaning or support (Jonathan, 2014). Additionally, western nations have allegedly supported terrorist groups fighting in countries or against governments deemed to be hostile to these western powers.

Some of the strategies that have been employed to curb terrorist activities have led to curtailment of citizen’s rights to freedom of speech, expression and association. These human rights abuses have led to waning international support for antiterrorism activities from nations and peoples opposed to these strategies (Myra, 2016).

Some school of thought theorize that terrorism has no identifiable person/nation and as such, military intervention as employed by the western nations is deemed to fail. They seem to agree on the idea that terrorism is an ideological warfare that needs to be tackled through similar interventions. Military interventions and occupation seem to aid and fan terrorist activities (Richard, 2013).

Since these activities by the western nations seem not to produce the desired effect on terrorist activities, the same nations may not be the ideal countries that will put an end to terrorism hence relying on them shall be in vain.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but GrabMyEssay.com is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
