Can Terrorism Be Beaten? Terrorism is the world's single largest international problems, Terrorism has been around since the world was created, it can be anything from the slightest attack on another persons beliefs physical abuse to the world's largest attack on the twin towers in America. Terrorism means "The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons" There are many different terrorist organisations all over the world to many to list so here are just a few.

stopped and to either single handily take up the crusade to stop all the terrorist leaders and other influential people from actually getting people to help them or simply eliminate them all this is a rather far fetched idea but if put into practice could have a profoundly good effect on society. I think that terrorism is just to big to ever be stopped in this life time and for many more decades after that. The sheer enormity of terrorism is just too mind boggling to even consider a way in which to bring it swiftly to its knee. I think that terrorism has become a way of life for many people simply because their views on life do not match to other peoples so they rebel.
