Further, this unit will discuss the historic and current views on right- and left-wing terrorism and extremist views. Lastly, this unit will discuss the following typologies and classifications of terrorism:state terrorism,state-enabled/involved terrorism, andstate-sponsored terrorism.State-Sponsored TerrorismThe United States Department of State (2014) defines a state-sponsor of terrorism as meeting specific implications designating countries that repeatedly support international terrorism (i.e., placing a country on the “terrorism list”), and as listed in the Country Reports on Terrorism 2014(Ch. 3, para. 1), imposes four main sets of U.S. Government sanctions: 1. A ban on arms-related exports and sales.2. Controls over exports of dual use items, requiring 30-day Congressional notification for goods or services that could significantly enhance the terrorist-list country's military capability or ability to support terrorism. 3. Prohibitions on economic assistance. 4. Imposition of miscellaneous financial and other restrictions.
