Due to the secretive nature and small size of terrorist organizations, they often offer opponents no clear organization to defend against or to deter. Hardly a week goes by without an act of terrorism taking place somewhere in the world, indiscriminately affecting innocent people, who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Some thousands of people are injured every year by terrorists. Many are also killed each year due to these catastropich actions.


The event of terrorism is certainly related with what is happening in the society. The society is falling apart. Its old order, discipline, morality, religion, everything has been found to be wrongly based. It has lost its power over people's conscience, and the people's ability to control their lives. Groups like Al Qaida choose to wage violence becuase of U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. Osama Bin Laden's terrorist group had started a," Holy War" with the U.S. The result of 9/11 was the," War on Terror,". Ten years later the U.S. find, and take out the mastermind behind the attacks.
