Chapter Summary

A Theory of International Terrorism maintains that supportive entities are an essential party to the terror triangle. They are called supportive entities because they support an aggrieved population's primary and secondary demands. Any entity is a supportive entity if it furnishes moral, political, economic, informational, or military support to advance or defend the rights of an aggrieved population. One need not assume that all supportive entities aid and abet terrorism. In fact, most supportive entities that advance and defend the primary and secondary demands of aggrieved populations do not support the armed struggle of militants representing the aggrieved population. Given the ineffectiveness of international institutions to prevent aggression and resolve disputes peacefully, the right to armed struggle is considered indispensable to fight international wrongs against aggrieved populations. Divestments are efficacious supportive tools to defend and promote legitimate demands and rights of an aggrieved population.
