Why is terrorism on the rise?
Is increase in fanaticism the reason for this ?
Oil, Drugs, Arms sales, Power, pick your choice or create your own.
Uneducated and underemployed masses, particularly the young. Add that to poverty and intrusive foreign policy and you have a large pool o potential terrorists with an identifiable target.
Hunger will cause fanaticism! A belief that you should eat will cause a starving person to hate someone that has stolen all of the world resources. So what some people call terrorism is more terror for them, because the people that they have stolen from will kill them or die to eat and feed their families. The definition of "Terrorism" has been expanded here in the US has been expanded to include the angry poor. Police here have been trained for urban insurrection and containment, why? Because any person that take to the streets will be deemed a terrorist before too long. So yes, as the poverty increases, so will civil unrest and associated "Terrorism".
I can sit here and list all the reasons why, but I will just name the two biggest...
Money & Power.
I would say like any crime as economic and social structure breaks down people become more bitter and hate is on the rise.
is it on the rise? Or has america only gotten more aware?
I believe there is one reason why terrorism is on the rise and that is because there are too many passive people in this world that do nothing to stop it. It doesn't matter what country it is, terrorism needs to be attacked head on and stop with the cries that we need to keep the peace. Peace is only possible if you attack the opposition to peace. It is every person's duty in the entire world to fight against terrorism. It needs to be done on a global level, a national level, and an individual level. If you see a wrong, fight to make it right. Stop being passive! Terrorist need to be attacked with every power non-stop across the globe until there isn't a terrorist alive that has the guts to want to cause terror ever again. It will decline if people stop arguing over attacking the terrorist. Wipe them all out. The United States has been leading the war on terror but if we didn't have to do it almost by ourselves and other countries would chip in to fight instead of being quiet about it, then it would decline to virtually non-existent in a short time.
because we give it attention.
and they have the means to draw attention.
The root word in terrorism is terror and terrible things aren't ignored.
Because everyone wants to become a leader. Everyone wants power and money.

No one had any question that George Bush's War on Terror was at least partially referring to terrorists. It wasn't "up in the air."An act of terror would have to be performed by a terrorist! No other action would be described as such, unless the meaning of the word terror was...
