ABSTRACT

Shooting the Messenger: Diplomats Crushed by Wave of New Terrorism   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The security of diplomats is a challenging endeavor that requires constant evaluation and increased resources. This thesis compares and contrasts the Cold War and Post-Cold War ems to determine trends in attacks against diplomatic targets and identifies a dangerous evolution in terrorist tactics that combines suicide bombers with armed assaulters in which none of the attackers intend to survive. The Global Terrorism Database shows the number of attacks against diplomatic targets during the last 22 years of the Cold War(1970-l99l) are roughly equal to the number in the first 23 years post-Cold War (1992-2015)."
