Take a look at the scenario of a war. We will never say that it is immoral to let out soldiers kill or inflict pain on the enemies in a war because we know that it is the only way to safeguard our nation's sovereignty and the lives of our people. The motives are very clear as mentioned. Thus it is justifiable to let our soldiers kill those who intended to harm the lives of our citizens. When a terrorist has clearly intended to harm the lives of millions, why is it not justified then, to inflict pain on the terrorist, with the motive of wanting to protect the lives of many more innocent people?
As a result, Americans were distraught and sought revenge, creating the War on Terror. The War on Terror is a costly project, but is the only way to keep peace in the United States. In order to understand the war against terrorism, you must understand what terrorism is. Terrorists are people that are provoked by political means and create fear to reach their goals (Walker). Many people believe that the cure to terrorism is not a war, but more diplomacy.
Not only does terrorism cause deaths, but it also negatively affects a country’s economy and religion. Terrorism causes more problems rather than “solving” problems terrorists may have. The first reason for asserting that terrorism cannot be justified is the slaughter of innocent people, which isn’t moral. Whether people uninvolved are killed isn‘t a concern to terrorists. Terrorism ignores the lives of many people completely and this directly conflicts with people who are close to those who have died in an accident due to terrorism.
The whole aim of guerrilla warfare is to get the enemy to leave, while the object of terrorism is to send a message to one’s enemy, even in his homeland through violence, not civil disobedience. Terrorism kills innocents as well as those who may be directly involved with combat. While this may occur in guerrilla warfare, it is not the main purpose. The main purpose of terrorism is to achieve a political end through the means of taking the lives of innocents who are in no way directly involved in any combat operations. Examples of terrorism are very prevalent in our society, the 9/11 attacks, the bombing of the USS Cole, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the recent attack on the British Crown.

(Wilcox Par 6) The challenge for governments is to persuade people that the killing of civilians by terrorists is absolutely unacceptable whatever the political motive. Winning the hearts and minds of citizens against terrorism so that terrorists can be isolated and exposed is thus a vital part of successful counterterrorism.

This helps explain the high level of commitment and willingness to risk death among religious extremist groups. The Hezbollah view the West as “the Great Satan” and the foremost corrupting influence on the Islamic world today. This militant group does not view the suicide bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut as an insane act,(5) but as martyrdom against the evil ways of the West.
The Taliban and terrorist groups like it are a threat to people all over the world. As we have seen with the September 11 attack, they are ruthless and very dangerous. This attack killed 700 people with 4,569 people still missing. (USA Today). These types of groups should not be allowed to roam free to cause havoc on innocent civilians around the world.
Islam, the religion of peace and harmony has unfortunately been corrupted by the deadly terrorist acts which have taken place around the world during these past couple of years. Today the people in this world view Islam as a threatening and terrorist religion. Often, the killing of innocent people, suicidal bombings and terrorist attacks are carried out people who tend to claim themselves as Muslims, though in reality, the dissident actions of these so called named Muslims have nothing to do with Islam. Among all the attributes of God, the Holy Book (Quran) mentions that: he is the source of peace and bestower of security (59:23) people must establish peace in their life. Terrorism what a complete disgrace, however people forget one thing that terrorism is not only found in Islam yet also continued in other religions and countries.
Also, after the 9/11 attack, the evolution and development of terrorism in the world has influenced to the belief of many people, and lead to many political problems. Based on many terrorism attacks happened in the past, there are some general significant historical elements of terrorism including the international environment, the terror and the State, and the Individual, which we all should perceive and understand in order to exterminate it. Firstly, the International Environment of terrorism is an important element in the history of terrorism because until now, there have been a lot of terrorist attacks occurring in many ways in many countries all over the world with different purposes. Terrorism is not a new term because terrorist attacks happened and developed a long time ago. Additionally, terrorism can be considered a conspiracy which might aim to a big population and create the terror to threaten the innocent citizens and the government of a country.

The terrorists kill unarmed civilians including women men and children, which belong to loved families. Organized crime causes disharmoney amongst the people. Our government has to make heavy expenditure to meet the challenges of terrorism. Since man started fighting man, there have been a few unwritten codes of conduct, and some of the things to not do is torture, kill or hurt innocent people, terrorism is designed to destabilize a nation or government by attacking and killing the innocent civilians, showing the government cant protect its own nation, or people when in need.
