Just as the emerging globalized integrated regional and world economy shows a promise of reducing the potential for conflict, there is the threat of changes to the new terrorism. Universal access to worldwide communications gives the disaffected, dedicated terrorist groups unprecedented capability. Communications technology provides access to scientific and technical knowledge previously held only by certain governments.

Apocalyptic terrorism, rogue states, and weapons of mass destruction in combination pose real threats to the United States and other countries.
