Terrorist Attacks Will Continue To Soar And Here's Why

The CIA     

WORLD NEWS

The world must come to terms with hard truths instead of pleasant sounding euphemisms and soundbites. Indeed, just as the so-called "Global Village" will always contain conflict and community, or the "Modern Age" is actually a continuation of a divergent past, dubious "Preemptive Wars" will be vehemently resisted with questionable forms of violence considered to be acts of terror and terrorism.


Unlike the U.S. State Department, which seemed surprised that the number of terrorist attacks jumped 35% in 2014 and that fatalities soared 81%,(1) the rise in terrorism came as no surprise for those aware of inherent human nature or who understand the intrinsic crises found in nations and societies. 

Coupled with mindless policies, the explosion of individual, tribal, stateless and state-sponsored acts of terrorism will continue to soar.


For instance, the very concept of "modern civilization" is a misnomer, since it suggests a desire to separate the present from the past. But even progressive political and military ideas or modern human nature are extensions of the historical past. 

As long as "modern civilizations" refuse to acknowledge this, trying to impose their military hubris or state and economic systems and values onto certain regions, terrorism will increase.


Secondly and thirdly, some will always find morality in terrorism. In other words, terror will be a virtue and fully justified because it helps defend and maintain the principles of a given society under attack. Others will see acts of terror as a revolutionary means to achieve political and economic goals-the ends justifying means rationale. Revolutionary terror will also be difficult to eliminate because it is a desperate tool by the powerless.

Surprisingly, advanced technologies, electronic communications, and artificial intelligence will produce more acts of terror. 


Avoiding face-to-face communication via electronics will make cruelty easier to accomplish. (This includes Western, democratic states.) It will as well increase the "shock" value of terrorist attacks as ISIS discovered. Hostage taking will increase, too, making it easier to communicate and transfer funds.

Another cause for the rise of terrorism will be highly centralized nations that which remain isolated and will deal superficially with the root causes of terrorism. 


Furthermore, a shallow grasp of history and solutions will merely cause more confusion, conflict and terror. Both states and terrorist entities, for that matter, will always act in their best self interests, preventing viable political solutions and agreements from occurring.


Seventh, the "Global Media" will multiply the power of terrorists and terrorist states while it decreases it for nations. 

Global Media's decentralization of its false prestige will give rise to more extreme secular, ethnic and religious groups including their causes. Still, media misinformation and internet chatter will cause more confusion and mismanagement of conventional wars, as is being proved with the Global War On Terror.


As "Cultural Diffusion" clashes with cultural differences, the other reason for soaring terrorism will be aggressive behavior fueled by meritocracy. Forced Cultural Diffusion will produce deadly competitions in states and regions. 

Consequently, and as resource scarcity increases, desperate political, economic, and survivalist situations will occur. Frantic conditions and rivalries will provide opportunities for millions to rebel violently.


Finally, militant and corporate empires and states will find it necessary to maintain their rule and exploitative practices around the globe, including their lucrative arms trade. Their violent assaults (always disguised as benevolent gestures) against both democratic movements or terrorist organizations will have devastating effects, as observed in Haiti, Iraq, Afghanistan, Honduras, Yemen, Syria, Egypt, Palestine and many more.

As more and more terrorist attacks (13,500 in 2014) soar around the world, so, too, will fatalities (33,000 in 2014). The world might appear in flames but again, it is a continuation of the past. It is also an outgrowth of the failures of imagination, especially among leaders and citizens incapable of imagining a world of peaceful co-existence, of not being able to live as equals with and among others.




Consequently, preemptive wars and acts of terror-two ambiguous terms-will continue to multiply and pollute the world with mass killings and terror.
