Terrorism, since the military and Western eyes

Terrorism, since the military and Western eyes -

The attack that killed more than a hundred people in the capital of France put back on check the security paradigms referred to in the industrialized nations. Limit the fight against terrorism at a military dimension not seem to have given efficient answers.

It is clear that in contemporary international reality there is a noticeable decline in wars between countries. However, any statements claiming that we are facing a state close to world peace, is quickly refuted by numerous images of violence around the planet.

The way we develop conflict has mutated with the passing of the history. And unfortunately, the creative capacity of man has put the military field in the forefront of technological development.

Historically, the real power imposed through violence has placed in a dominant those communities, kingdoms or states, who managed to implement those technological advantages for military purposes.

the different conditions and priorities that characterized the different communities in the world, produced an asymmetry of military power. However, the chances of facing an almost invincible enemy, has not been a deterrent for the generation of new wars reason.

World War II may have been the last historical episode in which they have faced powers. But still the war continued to exist, albeit in a different way.

During the second half of the twentieth century, was carried out a systematic emancipatory process around the planet. The people of different African and Asian colonies waged a form of "guerrilla warfare" against their metropolis. Nationalist groups tried to balance the asymmetry moving theaters classic military mountain operations, jungles and deserts, where they could take advantage of foreign armies.

However, with the ongoing development of new military technology the armed forces could overcome the geographic and climatic adversities that are present in any terrain. In this way, the whole world became a potential great theater of military operation. Including the cities.

was when terrorism became a sadly common practice. No need to train armies, or acquire a sophisticated knowledge of modern weapons, any everyday item can become a lethal device.

What characterizes these types of changes to international peace and security is the great diffusive capacity you can get to having a criminal act, thus ensuring the spread of an intimidating the world population within seconds message.

can then say that, from the symbolic attack on the Twin Towers in September 2011, began to be repeated year after year, similar phenomena that generated sudden breaks in the foundations of the international system.

With the advent of the XXI century, wars became multidimensional. Any field can become a space capable of fighting, whether physical or virtual. However, they are now the major powers which are stalked, and must meet the challenge of how to solve attacks that arise from the same territory. So far, the military response has not been effective results.
