What are you going to do to stop terrorism?

Dear Future President,

What are you going to do to stop terrorism? Terrorism is a big problem around the world,because terrorist groups such as ISIS have attacked other countries around the world, such as France, leaving many people dead. Terrorism is the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. Terrorism has affected counties around the world, so the United States is spending more money on intelligence on ISIS. Even though there have been many terrorist attacks around the world, there is a very small chance that you and your family will be attacked by a terrorist.

Since 9/11, security has been more strict, and improved, so that the U.S can know more about the terrorists and try to stop them. In the site, “”, it says, “Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the United States has spent more than $500 billion on intelligence, according to The Post. The 2013 budget request was about twice the size of the estimated 2001 budget (in constant dollars), the paper said.” This quote shows that the United States has been more alert, and strict about security because of the biggest attack from terrorism in U.S soil.

If you and your family are scared there will be a terrorist attack in your community, you should be more worried about your everyday threats. On the website, “” it says “You, your family members, your friends, and your community are all significantly more at risk from a host of threats that we usually ignore than from terrorism. For instance, while the Paris attacks left some 130 people dead,roughly three times that number of French citizens died on that same day from cancer.” this quote shows that people are more at risk from dying of cancer than being killed by a terrorist, because cancer is more common in the United States

In 2016, terrorism seems more common and more lethal around the world. On the website, “”, it says “These days, terrorism seems not just more lethal and more common, but more widespread. The death toll in recent weeks speaks for itself: 22 people dead in Bangladesh, 49 gone in the United States, 44 gone in Turkey, 292 gone in Iraq,because the death toll shows how many people are dead in different countries due terrorism. then another 37, another 12, yet another 12.” This quote explains how terrorism is becoming a little worse everyday,

In conclusion, terrorism is a huge topic in politics, and is threat to people and countries around the world. Many people will die if terrorism doesn’t end. What will our government do? What can we do to stop terrorism as a country? What will you do before terrorism comes back to america? Think about how we can stop terrorism together, and save millions of lives from terrorism. and help save millions of lives around the world.
