Capstone Papers-Centervale and Counterterrorism
Perform research on women suicide bombers in the United States. Evaluate how likely Centervale is to experience a female suicide bomber. Discuss where female suicide bombers are common and what other roles females from nations that support terrorism may play in terrorist operations in the United States.
Research the cost of counterterrorism in a post-9/11 era. Has the cost to protect the nation’s nuclear power plants risen since 9/11? Explain why the general public could interpret blowing up nuclear power plants, generally speaking, as weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Based on your research, suggest a method to protect Centervale’s nuclear power plant from attack without bankrupting the city.
Research the political aspects of terrorism and the differences of opinions that stakeholders might have when it comes to strategies for protecting Centervale’s most important venues. Explain how terrorism destabilizes a government. Further, explain how the manner in which a city’s government handles a terrorist attack (i.e., New York City) influences its mayor’s or city official’s political position.
Recommend a cost-effective antiterrorism training solution for the Centervale Police Department. Discuss how the training can be a proactive approach to deterrence and a reactive approach to an attack.
