The War Against Terror Through the Foundation for Defense of Democracies
When two or more parties are warring, it would be very difficult to make any development. Due to this realization, there has been an increase in campaigns against terror or any activities that may lead to destabilization of the world peace. The foundation for the defense of democracies is one of the most prominent foundations when it comes national security as well as observation of foreign policies. It is mainly focused on ensuring that no nation, group or individual carries out acts of terror on other people or nations. Let us look at a few things about the foundation.
The efforts to ensure that the goals of this foundation are achieved require for a series of things to be done. Among the most commonly used activities of ensuring that awareness against terror is created among people is the use of meetings and seminars. These are held for people that have a stake in the maintenance of peace such as military personnel, diplomats as well as ordinary citizens. Other means of creating awareness such as publication of books and television shows can also be used. In these awareness programs, there are a number of things that are discussed.
Financing is one of the most critical parts of any terrorist group. Terror groups are enabled to operate in any condition if they have sufficient financing. The activities of these terror groups can be crippled by exposing their sources of funding and this is because exposure tends to make the donors shy off. The sources of funding for the terrorist groups are researched on by the foundation. Once the research on the sources of funds for the terrorist groups has been completed, they then strategize on ways of cutting these sources of funds. Use of financial sanctions or preventing the financiers from reaching the terror groups through surveillance or arrests are examples of some of the strategies that can be recommended.
Another thing that the foundation of defense of democracies does is informing the general public of the real occurrences of the war against terror. One of the biggest projects that the foundation has embarked on since the twin tower bombings is reporting to the public how the war against terrorist groups has been going on in the respective countries.
The countries believed to be supporting terror groups, as well as those that the terrorists originate from, have been the subject of heavy military action since the twin tower bombings. Very little about the battlefield will be known by an ordinary citizen. The foundation was prompted into reporting about these occurrences in the field of battle due to this fact. In doing this, the citizen at home will understand how much progress is being made.
