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. This is a realization that has led to increased campaigns against terror and any acts that lead to destabilization of world peace. When it comes to issues concerning national security and the observation of the foreign policy, one of the most prominent foundations is the foundation for defense of democracies. The main objective of this foundation is ensuring that there are no terror activities being done by any nation, group or an individual. Some few things about the foundation have been listed below.
The efforts to ensure that the goals of this foundation are achieved require for a series of things to be done. The awareness against terror can be created through several things and among the most common 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. The foundation also employs other means of creating awareness such as publication of books and use of television shows. In these awareness programs, there are a number of things that are discussed.
One of the most key areas of any terrorist groups is financing. A terrorist group can be able to do its activities under any conditions if they have adequate financing. Exposure of the sources of funding in one way makes the donors shy off which as a result cripples the terror activities. The sources of funding for the terrorist groups are researched on by the foundation. With the research results in hand, the foundation then goes ahead and makes strategies on how to cut the sources of funding from the terror groups. These would include sanctions as well as preventing the financing regimes from reaching to the groups through surveillance or arrests.
Another thing that the foundation of defense of democracies does is informing the general public of the real occurrences of the war against terror. Since the terror attack on the twin towers, the foundation has made reporting how the fight against terror groups in the target countries one of its biggest projects.
After the twin tower bombings, a lot of military action was taken to the countries believed to be supporting the terror groups as well as where the terrorists are said to be coming from. There are very few things that the ordinary citizen will know about the field of battle. It is this realization that prompted reporting of the events by the foundation. In doing this, the citizen at home will understand how much progress is being made.
