Terrorism. Terrorist Threat
...But if the world can show that
it will carry on, that it will
persevere in creating a stronger,
more just, more benevolent and
more genuine international community
across all lines of religion and race,
then terrorism will have failed.

Nowadays the world faces the terrible threat that impends
over the bases of every democratic society. The recent terrorist
attacks in Spain, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Russia don't provide us with an
opportunity of talking about the reduction of worldwide terrorists'
activity. We will never forget September 11, 2001 tragedy, but there's
no reason to believe that tragedy of the same scale will never be
repeated again. According to FBI reports, al Qaeda bastards plan to
attack U.S. cities, chemical plants, nuclear reactors and other
objects of particular importance. Some reliable information sources
evidence that al Qaeda terrorists possess biochemical weapons and
radioactive materials. We can expect everything. The largest European
and American cities are under the permanent threat of terrorist attacks.
Unfortunately, governments are unable to protect people from terrorist
attacks in spite of their great efforts in a war against global terrorism.
Nevertheless there's no reason for us to fall into panic. On the
contrary, we should keep ourselves calm - one of the terrorists' goals
is to frighten people, and we must resist all their such attempts.
We should realize that the possible terrorist attack prevention is
within our hands. We must be careful in the streets, while visiting
public places (shopping centers, big squares, restaurants, public events)
and instantly inform police about any suspect objects, persons and cars.
Cooperating with police and special agents we can prevent possible
Remember: terrorists' enemy No1 is our unity. September 11, 2001
tragedy of American people united an entire world forming an
impenetrable wall in the mind of each citizen against participating
in political violence. And our unity against global terrorism comes
stronger and stronger year after year.
