     Lastly, an effective strategy to study terrorism ad their tactics is to find their Websites and TV programs that support them, or to a lesser extent report on their activities in a supportive way. Terrorist groups know how to use and manipulate such media outlets for their own propaganda. Their are discussion boards and forums that support terrorism as well! Join them and find out what our enemies are up to! They use Facebook and Twitter to extend their global reach. That's why we chose the resource below for further reading. Enjoy!
