Terrorism In Trinidad & Tobago
Topic is Terrorism in Trinidad, the first thing I ask myself is how do I define Terrorism.
I define Terrorism as a violent situation or violent act that creates a state of fear and panic in one's physical surounding and the well being of one's physical state, by a group or individual with an agenda using this act as a means to make a statement or to move their agenda forward.
For me I see Terrorism in Trinidad existing in many forms. So we have local Terrorist and International Terrorists.
A certain Religous group whose leader was put behind bars and several of his religous order found to be master minds of violent crimes in recent years are now silenced or very little is being heard of them. But this very same group was responsible for what could be considerd the very first major Terrorist Act performed against this country and its citizens. This group could be categorised as a Local Terrorist with links to International Terrorist (Libian Factions)
They put Trinidad and Trinbagonians undersiege in 1990 and walk free...
What message we sending to Terrorist? stage a coup and get paid millions...
Trinidadian people to complacent, but if we dont wake up our country going to be under seige with all these "three strikes and you are out" deportees who spend half their time in and out of the prison system in USA and they coming back with sophisticated criminal minds and tainted views by the induction into gang culture and other groups I.e. Nation of Islam, MS, Arian Brotherhood etc who have similar ideals to terrorist or linked to international terrorist groups.
We as a people and our Government not doing enough to deal with these issues or get informed about these issues.
Our Law Enforcement Agencies are eluded by the average everyday criminal farless for these very sophisticated criminal minds behind these terrorist acts whether it be for an international terrorist group member who coming here to commit a terrorist act to move that agenda forward or a local group using these tactics for some agenda within the local societal values system (politics, money, power, control, propaganda etc.)
