The fusion of uncomplicated rules in arithmetic, biology, and chemistry with ongoing advancements in and computation bargains the promise of even more subtle and exact sensing functions than presently exist. Coupled with the dramatic upward push within the desire for surveillance in innumerable points of our day-by-day lives led to through opposed acts deemed unbelievable just a couple of brief years in the past, the time is ripe for scientists within the diversified components of sensing and safety to hitch jointly in a concerted attempt to wrestle the recent manufacturers of terrorism.

Sample text

Disincentives do exist to prevent this proliferation. As of October 2004, the United States lists six countries as state sponsors of terrorism: Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Of these, five are pursuing WMD to one degree or another. Libya repudiated its WMD program as discussed below. Iran is a particular focus of the United States because of the convergence of its covert nuclear weapons program and its robust support of terrorism, going so far as to provide safe haven for the West’s most threatening enemy, al Qaeda.

2 Innovations in Tactics and Targets Generally modern terrorist organizations have not been particularly innovative, often relying on a group of attack types and imitating other terrorist organizations. Even al Qaeda, an innovative group as described below, was influenced by a precursor, the Iranian-sponsored Lebanese Hezbollah, and particularly their ability to coordinate multiple attacks [24]. Al Qaeda has used coordinated, multiple attacks several times including the 1998 East Africa bombings; the September 11 attacks; and the bombings of the Interior Ministry and Recruiting Center in Riyadh Saudi Arabia in December of 2004.

On the other hand, the threat from Libya has been significantly reduced since Moammar Gadhafi renounced his countries WMD aspirations in December of 2003. However, Libya remains on the list of state sponsors of terrorism. Prior to Libya’s commitment to repudiate terrorism, it had supported some of the most deadly terrorist attacks including the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland on December 21, 1988. But since Gadhafi’s renunciation, documented progress has been made. S. K. officials had removed critical elements of Libya’s nuclear and long-range ballistic missile programs and consolidated its existing chemical weapons to protect them from terrorists and ease destruction [18].
