9/11 anniversary: How has terrorism changed in the past 14 years?
“In the 14 years since the 9/11 attacks, the face of terrorism has changed out of recognition.”(Lister, 2015). That’s how Tim Lister started his article that was published on September 10, 2015 on the CNN website. Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, ISIS has posed a high level of adaptability and used different types of tools to survive after being temporarily defeated by General David Petraeus’ plan in Iraq in 2009. ISIS has gone from being AL Qaeda in Iraq or AQI to establishing their caliphate and reforming themselves out of the AL Qaeda circle to become known as ISIS.
Lone wolves are one of the rising threats that has changed since 9/11. It has become more pervasive that small groups, and single actors with little to no contact to any centralized authority are being inspired by Facebook, Twitter, and other social media forms. ‘But so diffuse is the threat now, and so much greater the appeal of ISIS to some who live in (or have left and then returned to) Western countries, that a stream of smaller but still deadly attacks has become the norm.” (Lister, 2015).
Understanding the act of terror and studying it as a dynamic war is a critical way to counter the threat of terrorism. It gives us different methods of creating adaptive defensive and offensive strategies. In addition, it helps us learn how to accept the back and forth in this dynamic war. “We are likely to look back at the last 14 years as only the opening salvo in what will be a very long war.” (Lister, 2015).
