After the Bolsheviks revolution in 1917, the new Red government arranged so-called “red terror” against dissidents among the former Russian intelligentsia. The first concentration camps were invented not by Hitler, as it is assumed to recognize, but by the leader of Soviet Russia Vladimir Lenin in the 1920s.

The terror and violence constituted the main technology of the Soviet Russia expansion during the 1920-1940s. Annexing new territories such as Ukraine, Baltic Countries, and the Caucasus, Soviet Russia eliminated the opposition by means of the army and the secret service terror. The deportation of the whole nations such as Chechens and Crimean Tatars into Central Asia in the 1940-1950s resulted afterward in the local conflicts and wars in the 1990s. During the seminar at The City University of New York dedicated to terrorism in Russia, Professor Randall Law showed the direct link between Chechen’s struggle for independence and terrorism in the 1990s. Due to the fusion of militant Islam and the independence intentions, Chechens had to apply terroristic methods against Russia. The reason was in a policy of President Putin, who managed to convince the worldwide community that Russia was fighting against the international terrorism during both Chechen wars. Ben Laden and Hattab names have added validity to Putin’s arguments. After the World War II, the Soviet Union established Soviet regimes in several Central European countries by means of the so-called Warsaw Pact making such countries as Poland, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia dependent of Moscow.

Of Waziristan as the Geography of Modern Terrorism.
The province of Waziristan is considered as the geography of modern terrorism; this thesis has historical and probably contemporary truth. Historically speaking, Waziristan had been the most difficult place for the imperial British government to totally subjugate.
This is because there is a fundamental tension between the journalist’s mission to report the all sides of any debate and the very understandable desire of governments and law enforcement agencies to prevent terrorists from promoting ideas connected to acts of violence and armed resistance.
These were at best limited in scope, as there was no assurance that they would always disseminate the message of the terrorist. After the advent of the Internet, terrorists can project the image they choose regarding themselves and their enemies (Weimann, 2004).
