Straightforward definition of terrorism is “the use of force or the threat of force against civilian populations to achieve political objectives.” The terrorists want to create fear, response and disruption. The international terrorism is also linked to drugs trafficking, gun smuggling and money laundering, so when the need comes or they are confronted, they kill without remorse or mercy. In order to counter these threats it is important to understand the motivation of terrorists – may be just creating havoc or they want to damage necessary resources available to the developed world. Risk assessment is used to estimate the flow and direction of the terrorist attacks: some believe their mission is based on their faith, while others carry out their missions in order to defend their ideological beliefs. In either case, terrorism is to be viewed as a crime committed against humanity and rooted deeply in poor education and lack of resources.
