After reading the first four chapters in the textbook, apply what you have learned to the following scenario.
Decide whether the controversy surrounding the Sony Pictures film The Interview was or was not a form of terrorism and defend your answer with three references from the course textbook. Your argument MUST reference at least one definition of terrorism discussed in the course textbook. You MUST back up your argument with three references from the course textbook and include the page numbers where you found that information.
Because I want you to post your original thoughts and impressions, you won’t be able to see what other classmates have written until you post your first comment. Keep in mind that this is not about giving the “right answer.”
When you come back to post again this unit, strive to engage with other students who may not have agreed with your conclusion.
Make your initial post by 11:59 PM Thursday and reply to at least two classmates by 11:59 PM Sunday.
