Unit 1 Intro to Terrorism DiscussionWelcome to HLS2301! It is great to have you in class this term. Please begin this discussion by posting a brief Introduction. Give your opinion as to why each federal, state, and local government agency has a different definition for the termterrorism. Why is there not a universal definition for all of the agencies in the United States? Do you believe that by not having a universal definition for the term terrorism, that it limits the capabilities of countering terrorism? If so, how?Please choose a different definition than your peers. Lastly, list a formal universal definition of terrorism in your own words. How would this newly created definition assist in the fight against terrorism both in the United States and abroad?Unit I Essay Back in 2012 an organization known as the Animal Liberation Front attacked a convoy of 14 trucks hauling feed for slaughter cattle in central California. The ALD is currently listed with the United States Department of Homeland Security as a domestic terrorist organization. The ALF is an international activist group, currently active in roughly 40 countries world-wide. This attack was against the Harris Feeding Company outside of Coalinga, California. The group of individuals placed containers filled with an accelerant of some kind with rope soaked which was attached to the other vehicles causing a total loss and destruction to the trucks and their payloads.
