Although terrorism has been practiced since before the dawn of recorded history, It has never constituted the worldwide threat it does today. The proliferation of anus and the very real potential for nuclear terrorism combine with immediate worldwide mobility and highly sophisticated technology to put terrorism near the top of threats that must be effectively countered.

Some terrorist groups practice local terrorism, others practice International terrorism. The United States has its own terrorist groups; for example, the Armed Farces of Puerto Rican Liberation (FALN), the Black Liberation Army, and the Jewish Defense League. And it is probable that spillover from the Middle East will reach the United States. But the greatest danger may well be from new extremist groups. One group that .Is .ripe. for such development is that of Central and South American immigrants for whom the .American Dream. seems impossibly remote; and there is reason to believe that the Cuban intelligence service will continue to promote terrorist group development here.

Alternatives for countering terrorism will depend on the group.s organization and operation, the need for a counterterrorist cadre, the need for psychological operations, and the need for integration of counterterrorism efforts. . .
