Contained in this book is not the way, but simply a way to detect, defeat and disrupt a terrorist attack against yourself and your family. There is no magic bullet that will protect you in any and all circumstances. There are no guarantees that following this book to the letter will prevent your becoming the target of a terrorist group. There is no doubt, however, that by following these time-honored and tested principles you will be safer and better prepared than most citizens.
The tactics and techniques in this book have been practiced by U.S. Government employees who live, work and serve in dangerous environments. We have a phrase that we use – “written in blood”, and these techniques have truly been “written in blood”. Simply stated, we learn through the failures and experiences of others. In the world of counter terrorism it is often through the shed blood and sacrifice of innocent lives that we learn our most valuable lessons.
There is no doubt that the world has changed in the last few years and we must be prepared for the worst, even as we hope for the best. The information contained in this book should be considered an essential guide in your quest for personal safety.
Today’s terrorist makes no distinction between soldier and businessman, man or woman, child or adult, student or missionary. To the terrorist we are all targets of opportunity – we are fair game. When they are faced, however, with an adversary who is well trained and versed in the terrorists’ own tactics, and most importantly is willing to fight, most of these “bullies” will retreat and seek out an easier target. The techniques provided in this book are the “tools” that will help you to:
• Spot a terrorist incident before it occurs
• Respond quickly to a terrorist incident
• Survive an attack
As a society, we must become better prepared to detect and defeat terrorism, wherever and whenever it rears its ugly head. This book will help you to stay alert and stay alive through the diligent practice and incorporation of those techniques in your daily life.
