edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Terrorism:

I think we should add 'new terrorism' under the broad heading of terrorism. It is widely accepted within scholarly and policy circles we are in the midst of confronting something fundamentally different to the terrorisms of old.

The linking of civil disorder and terrorism is tenuous at the least.


Fourth generation warfareEdit

Does anyone else think Fourth generation warfare is not established enough in scholarship to warrant being prominently featured in the 2nd sentence of the lead? Seraphimsystem (talk) 09:26, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I removed this when reformed the lead a few months ago, not knowing you had made a discussion about it on the talk page, so no worries here anymore. SpikeballUnion (talk) 14:29, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Definition in ledeEdit

I know that terrorism is impossible to precisely define, but recent changes have given up and effectively removed all definition from the article lede. It now starts with (my emphasis) "The terms 'terrorist' and 'terrorism' have been used since the late 18th century." This article isn't about some terms, but a class of acts. If there was actually zero agreement on what terrorism means, then we wouldn't need an article on it. Our first sentence should at least start to capture that agreement, even if only partial; additional defs can immediately follow in the next sentence or two to complete the picture. Yes, the new lede is better sourced, but it's essentially useless for readers. We have to do better. --A D Monroe III (talk) 21:01, 22 July 2017 (UTC)

After a week without comments, I've WP:BOLDly inserted the last stable definition back before the start of the current lede. --A D Monroe III (talk) 16:08, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
