United States military technology is far more powerful and effective than that of other countries, and it has greater intelligence. The government could not stop the attacks due to war costs, human rights violations, and dynamic of extremist Islamic terrorist organizations. United States military technology is dangerous, and includes nuclear bombs. These could have devastating repercussions for the world’s environment (Duiker 2014). These may have a negative impact on both the target and those who are innocent. The United States military does not use weapons that could threaten the sustainability of the planet, something they are committed to preserving. The second concern is that the superior military and deadly weaponry may lead to serious violations of human rights. Many innocent civilians may be killed or maimed when military combatants are used against terrorist groups. If the United States continues to use force against human rights activists, it risks losing international support. The nation seeks peace through diplomatic means and will only resort to military intervention if necessary. Extremely dynamic ideologies are rooted in Islamic teachings. These terrorist groups have established networks across many nations and their belief in the destruction of US and Western powers is reinforced by fatal force. Williams (2016) argues that militarism is futile because it only exacerbates terrorist activity and causes more deaths. For example, military actions against Al-Qaeda led to ISIS being created. This terrorist group has strong ties with Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram, and other groups.
American security systems have helped protect the country from attacks. United States established the Border Patrol to protect the country from terrorists. In order to prevent terrorist attacks, the US developed a strategic partnership in which global intelligence sharing can be strengthened. By sharing information, the United States has been able to prevent potential threats from arising. USA has strengthened its law enforcement and judicial capacities to handle terrorist suspects (Homeland Security 2019, 2019). United States learns from previous failures to prevent terrorist strikes. The United States has decided to respond to terrorist attacks by using proactive strategies such as border enforcement and information sharing over military action. The nation has been able to respond faster to terrorist attacks both domestically and internationally.
