Philadelphia, PA, February 07, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Interior Ministry of Saudi Arabia released a list of 85 wanted terrorism suspects last Tuesday. Soldiers of the Sri Lankan army captured the largest training base for suicide bombers. Former US vice president Dick Cheney warns America of the probability of a biological or nuclear terrorist attack in the coming years. Since the day of the terrorist attacks on the United State on September 11, 2001, the world has become more acquainted with the force of terrorism in a global scale.
Terrorism has been depicted in books and media over the years but the reality of it has never been so tangible with the increased incidences of suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism in many parts of the world. In the last seven years, the issue of international terrorism has become a common fixture in every day news reports.
There are many opinions and arguments on the nature and purpose of terrorism. Many people throughout the world would contend that some acts of terrorism cannot be morally condemned for varied reasons. The self published book ‘Terrorism and Moral Condemnation: Why Indiscriminate Lethal Terrorist Acts Are Evil’ takes a look at those different theses and viewpoints.
John S. Pletz presents a comprehensive assessment of the arguments that are being made in attempts to justify or excuse terrorism, explaining why terrorist acts, which indiscriminately cause the death of innocent noncombatants, should always be called evil. The author explores the noble ends that terrorists are supposedly seeking and the oppressive conditions in which they have been living as some of the reasons for perpetuating acts of terrorism.
Pletz emphatically concludes that since “an evil act is one in which significant unjustified harm is caused by someone who is highly culpable for it, indiscriminate lethal terrorist acts are evil.”
