In my opinion, terrorism is a problem that is only going to get worse. Maybe if the United States stopped giving foreign aid to countries that fund terrorism, but that’s a subject for another article (on another site). The point is, even though it’s been over 15 years since 9/11, there is just as much cause for alarm now as there was back then. To help keep yourself safe, especially when in dangerous countries, you should learn how to detect signs that a terrorist attack is in the works.
The Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center made a great series of videos that cover 8 signs of terrorism:
- Elicitation or Gathering Information
- Testing Security
- Acquiring Supplies
- People Who Don’t Belong
- Dry Run Rehearsal
- Deploying Assets or Getting Into Position
I embedded the first two videos below, but you can watch the whole series here.
