While most governments and state organizations continue to reduce proliferation, there is increasing probability of nuclear threat and blackmail from non-government entities such as insurgencies, terrorist, and liberation movements operating from proxy states.
A nuclear weapon creates ultimate destruction, but it can also be perceived as a powerful blackmail threat by an insurgent organization. There are many regions throughout the world where significant population groups would prefer to live in an independent state of their own. Those are potential areas of political unrest that give birth to various insurgent and terrorist movements.
The Internet, social media, and increasing use of mobile devices, create an environment conducive to rapid development of insurgencies and their financing. They also provide information about technologies and usage of nuclear materials, their whereabouts, and conversion into nuclear weapons of all kinds. This E-Guide is based on the assumption that, as governments tighten up measures against conventional terror weapons and methods, the insurgents will look towards more effective solutions to achieve their objectives.
There are dozens of populations seeking autonomy and independence, but only those with political strength, having technical skills and finances, and living in strategic locations with natural resources, can hope to achieve their aims. Our E-Guide will discuss details on the most likely such groups like Kurdistan, Palestine, Catalonia, Kashmir, Basques, Quebec, Chiapas, Mindanao, Igboland, Cyrenaica, Flanders, Northern Ireland, Scotland and others. This E-Guide tries to identify the most likely situations that may become explosive in the nearest future and suggest ideas for individual protection and security.
