The New Patterns of Warfare: Terrorism against Innocent Civilians
Terrorism surfaces in a most brutal manner in the global conflicts in
the early 21st century. It is a question of a new form of terrorism that is different from classical terrorism by the French and Russian revolutionaries. This new form of struggle by religious fundamentalists and ethno-nationalists occurs in a band of countries from Algeria to the Philippines. It destabilizes the state and results in massive losses of lives among innocent civilians as well as injured innocents.
