The author examines the impact of technological developments on low- level violence. He examines the topic in somewhat broader terms, looks at current trends in technology, both military and civilian, and what they could mean in the long run to guerrillas and terrorists, and also what they could mean for society. The author, argues that due largely to technological developments modern guerrilla and terrorist groups are being afforded a growing capacity for disruption and destruction. The support of terrorists by any nation or group of nations in turn will further increase the terrorists capacity for violence. It may also prevent effective international cooperation aimed at controlling international terrorism.
