Prior to 9/11, a terrorist attack was an internal issue for the victim state, or the country or nation against which a terrorist attack occurred. For this reason, countries with a longer history in dealing with terrorism than the U.S., like Germany, Britain, Israel, and Peru established special military forces to prevent and eliminate terrorist attacks immediately as threats arose. However, these countries are a lot smaller and easier to guard compared to the United States. Legislation such as the USA Patriot Act, Transportation Security Act, Homeland Security Act, and the Comprehensive Homeland Security Act was designed to be more comprehensive in that the government has access to wider scopes of information and employs stricter regulations in areas like public transportation compared to the countries mentioned above. However, since 9/11 and the proliferation of terrorist organizations, terrorism has come to the forefront as a major global problem that should be combated internationally. In 2006, the United Nations (UN), created a global strategy to counterterrorism and has encouraged members, including the United States, to cooperate and collaborate on counterterrorism efforts.
