Combating terrorism and prosecuting terrorist organizations

Information
Combating terrorism and prosecuting terrorist organizations is a cumbersome task for many countries and the international community. Definitional ambiguity, legislative constraints, and lack of resources are just some of the factors that limit governments. Comparably, technology, illegal funding, and the new media enable terrorist organizations to continue their operations. It is asymmetrical warfare with great implications for the United States’ homeland security. By now, you are familiar with a handful of terrorist organizations that have been engaging in terrorist activities across the world. Not all of them want to spread terror to the United States, but those that do are highly motivated and resourceful.
Instructions
For this assignment, you are required to use The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) (Links to an external site.)to identify recent terrorist attacks committed by an international terrorist organization. You have to report 2-3 attacks that this terrorist organization is responsible for. You can focus on one region, or a country, or pick any other category. Please watch the syllabus video to review the steps on how to navigate the database. You can use any organization examined by the GTD. For additional help with locating a group and seeing how the U.S. government designates terrorist organizations visit the Department of State’s Foreign Terrorist Organizations (Links to an external site.)website OR Office of the Director of National Intelligence-Counterterrorism (Links to an external site.).
Once you identify an international terrorist organization, you have to research the group’s historical and ideological background. That includes the group’s social and political contexts, motivation, and cultural characteristics. As you are doing your research consider the following questions:
Which tactics do they use?
What type category (according to the textbook) of terrorism does the group engage in? How does the GTD classify it?
Is the group’s strength/presence increasing globally?
How does the terrorist organization fund its operations?
Do they utilize the technology/media? And how? Were the attacks covered by the media?
Is the terrorist organization interacting with the technology to spread their ideologies and/or spread terror?
What is the relationship between the group and force multipliers?
What is the purpose of the group (motivation)
What is the ideology of the group?
Is the group is small-cell or a large cell? Do they have the capabilities to engage in a large-scale attack, and if yes, where?
The goal is to critically assess whether the terrorist organization you picked has the resources and motivations to threaten the United States. More importantly, does the group even have a reason to take on an enemy such as the United States? You can be creative and innovative, a small terrorist cell can specialize in cyberterrorism and attack the U.S. critical infrastructure. Likewise, an international terrorist group with resources and funding might not target the United States for fear of reciprocity.
Parameters
To receive full points for this assignment, you will have to submit:
A poster/iconography/print (10 points)
For example, 1-page poster can include a map, a graph, a table, or any other visual that is important to the understanding of the group’s ability to threaten the United States. The visual can cover the group’s operational capabilities, geographical and social relevance, or global impact. A visual, such as a graph or table, can include the number of injuries they caused, and the economic, human or social toll. You can analyze their organization chart or leadership structure. Is it their location, structure, operational capabilities, or funding that is making them dangerous? Your poster should catch the attention of the reader and be presented with a sense of urgency. The components you must include on your poster are the group name, a clear visual representation, and major talking points covered in the essay (bullet points or a list).
Short essay (10 points)
The paper, containing 3 paragraphs (14-20 sentences), should briefly explain the group’s historical development, ideological premise, operational capabilities, etc. The essay should answer the questions that guided your research. Why did you pick this group? Is it the group’s historical significance or potential for growth that makes this group stand out for you as a threat to the United States? Refer to the questions above. The goal is to critically assess whether the international terrorism will threaten the United States in the future.
Include these major points on your poster and use the paper as support or complementary material for the poster/visual. The essay should elaborate on the topic you presented with the poster and provide more substance to the topic. Provide an argument and support your position with evidence from the textbook. Follow general APA guidelines (12 font, Times-New Roman, double spaced; Introduction, Body, Conclusion) and include the Reference Page.
Submit the poster and the essay together as one submission. You can upload multiple files at once.

For this assignment, evaluate your community to identify a hazard that poses a p

For this assignment, evaluate your community to identify a hazard that poses a particular threat to access and functional needs populations. Formulate plans for the evacuation and sheltering of a specific segment of that population in the event of a disaster. For example, if you identify a low-income area that is at risk of flooding, select a structure, such as a hospital, school, housing complex, or assisted living facility that would require special attention during the response and recovery phase of a disaster. Formulate plans for dealing with the population inhabiting the structure during and after a disaster. Your plans should include the following (1,250-1,500 words): Identify the population and structure and explain why you think they are especially at risk from the hazard you have identified. Formulate plans for evacuating the population during the disaster. Who would be involved in the evacuation of this population? What special concerns would need to be addressed during the evacuation operation? How would evacuation plans be most effectively communicated to this population? Formulate plans for sheltering the population in the immediate aftermath. Where could this population be safely sheltered in the short-term? What are the best long-term sheltering options for this population in the event of an ongoing recovery process? What specific challenges are involved with sheltering this population in both the short- and long-term? How might those challenged be addressed? Describe social factors and social determinants that can influence disaster recovery. Develop recommended best practices for the possibility of sheltering people that may overburden the equipment and staff of the current shelter. Comment on how well you think your community is currently prepared to evacuate and shelter special needs populations overall. Recommend two strategies your community should consider for improving its plans. Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines

In your opinion, how effective are U.S. fusion centers?

In the wake of the terrorist attacks in September 2001, the 9/11 Commission recommended that the U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) find a way to improve information sharing of terrorism-related intelligence at all three levels of government (local, state, and federal). The USIC’s answer to this recommendation was the creation of intelligence fusion centers. Since the creation of these intelligence fusion centers, there has been much controversy because of the large amounts of personal information secretly collected and shared within the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement communities. In addition, some critics argue that in the years since their creation, fusion centers and the law enforcement entities affiliated with them have moved away from their original purpose and instead have utilized federal grants and resources to fight local crime. Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas: In your opinion, how effective are U.S. fusion centers? Explain. Do you feel that the creation of fusion centers has improved information sharing of terrorism-related information at all three levels of government? Why or why not? Do you feel that fusion centers have ultimately moved away from their intended purpose? Why or why not? Are fusion centers now being used as a local law enforcement tool to help fight local crime? Why or why not?
