Transcript of Conventional & Unconventional Terrorism

Terrorism Conventional terrorism is a form
of warfare conducted by using conventional
military weapons and battlefield tactics
between two or more states in open confrontation.
The forces on each side are well-defined,
and fight using weapons that primarily
target the opposing army.
It is normally fought using
conventional weapons,
and not with chemical, biological,
or nuclear weapons. Conventional Terrorism The general purpose of conventional
warfare is to weaken or destroy the
opponent's military force,
thereby negating its ability to engage
in conventional warfare.
In forcing capitulation, however, one or
both sides may eventually resort
to unconventional warfare tactics. Conventional terrorism Unconventional terrorism targets civilian
population psychologically to win hearts and minds,
and only targets military and political bodies directly,
seeking to render the military proficiency of the
enemy irrelevant. Limited conventional warfare tactics
can bused unconventionally to demonstrate might
and power, rather than to substantially reduce the enemy's
ability to fight. In addition to the surgical application of
traditional weapons, other armaments that specifically
target military can be used are:
atomic weapons, urban incendiary devices,
or other such weapons. Unconventional Terrorism Special Forces, inserted deep behind an enemy's
front lines, are used unconventionally to train,
equip and advise locals who seek to change their oppressive
regimes. They can also spread subversion and
propaganda, while they aid native resistance fighters,
to ultimately cause a hostile government to capitulate.
Tactics focus on destroying military targets while
avoiding damage to civilian infrastructure and
blockading military resupply are used to decrease the
morale of government forces. Examples of
