Example text

Chemical and biological agents can be relatively easily obtained either directly from state actors, 87 by legitimate means from commercial outlets or by theft from civilian stockpiles and research facilities. 89 Between 1991 and 1993, for instance, German authorities had investigated 370 cases of suspected nuclear smuggling from the former USSR. Although 118 of these turned out to be swindles (people trying to sell material they did not have), 123 were for real. 90 There are currently four main organised Russian groups thought to be involved in the trafficking of nuclear and radiological material out of the former Soviet Union: the Dologopruadnanskaya, the Chechens, the Ukranians and the Georgians.

Second has been the intensification of long-standing nationalist and separatist wars which have been able to draw on the continued and heightened focus that has been placed on ethnic and nationalist identity creation during the 1990s. One of the more pertinent features that has characterised post-Cold War politics in the Balkans, Eastern Europe and central Asia are the particularly nasty civil wars that have accompanied the break up of the Yugoslav Federation and the Soviet Union. 9 Here savage tribal wars have been fought by irregular paramilitary groups that have carried out repeated massacres against civilians in an attempt to terrorise whole opposing ethnic groups into submission.

In many ways, this change in the terrorist mindset can be connected with the same factors that have fuelled terrorist acts in general during the 1990s. Of particular importance have been the prevalence of militant religious (especially, though not exclusively, Islamic) imperatives and the emergence of ad hoc, amateur terrorism. Contrary to its depiction in the Western media, terrorism motivated by a religious imperative is not confined simply to the radical Islamic Arab dimension. 63 The prevalence of radical religious imperatives such as these has significant implications for the lethality of terrorism.
