Essay on Solutions to End Terrorism

Being an avid fan of the current affairs, I take keen interest in listening to what security professionals around the globe propose as solutions to end terrorism. Often, I find myself evaluating their suggestions with a laymanís eye wondering what it would take for their suggestions to actualize. In my opinion, I have found that the easiest way to end terrorism would be by preventing the flow of funds to these extremist groups, securing defenses within a nation, and governments keeping an eye on extremist individuals who influence others. I believe that by adopting these practices, governments would effectively end terrorism.

[blur] As Schneider (2017) explains stopping the flow of funds is the easiest solution. It is also the most direct to understand since terrorists need funds to buy their way into the country, to purchase weapons and to pay strategically placed individuals to influence other individuals. From my understanding of the current practice of finance, governments around the world can corroborate to address the flow of funds or set standards that guide how funds should be sent. An article by Nguyen (2018) highlights how these criminals benefit from lax regulations allowing them to circumvent government systems and succeed in their agenda. By structuring banking laws, governments can succeed to end terrorism simply by denying these criminals avenues to access finances. [/blur]

[blur] Securing defenses is an initiative-taking approach that aims at preventing terrorism even before it happens. Defense cut across different ideas such as protecting boundaries and the perception that the government has created to the citizens. In most cases, governments by their actions tend to create distrust to its citizens a factor that has been blamed for creating negative image. A review by Porumbescu (2017) on the role of the government in nurturing crime found that governments tend to create a negative perception and distrust that allows crime and other evils to thrive. †On the contrary, whenever a government collaborates with its citizens, as Porumbescu (2017) elaborates it create a positive image that helps the citizens to take part in alleviating crime. For instance, ideas on community policing by Cherney and Hartley (2017) have confirmed this in detail showing just how governments can succeed in their endeavor and end terrorism. [/blur]

[blur] The success of executing terrorism acts hinges on the influence by individuals who are strategically placed to influence vulnerable groups. These individuals can be leaders or clerics who hold special dockets in the society. Keeping an eye on such individuals and monitoring activities in the community can help the government to identify the vulnerable groups that are likely to be influenced (Haynes, 2016). In doing this the government can find solution to address their vulnerability and bring the influencing agents to books. [/blur]

[blur] Although it is difficult to stop an individual who intends to execute a crime or a terrorist act, the government can set an atmosphere that will reduce the willingness of an individual to take part in carrying out such an act. This article highlights the idea of stopping the flow of funds by adopting strict banking laws that check the trail of money from their source to the destination. The paper also suggests finding ways to secure defenses either by monitoring boundaries or setting a communal participative approach that allows everyone to be a security keeper. Lastly, the paper suggests monitoring individuals with influence and finding solution to meet the needs of the vulnerable groups to protect them from taking part in such acts. [/blur]
