Especially ISIS, al-Qaida, Taliban, and al-Sharia are the major terrorist organizations, who have been creating a higher threat around the world. Thus, ISIS and al-Qaida have seen as the main threat for the United States, and other western countries. Looking at the ISIS strategy, they seek to conquer territory and build own state. They have been successful in their strategy because of the unstable political situation in the Middle East, corrupt government and brutal dictatorship. Religious extremism, international intervention, proxy wars, and aggression among the people are major causes that helping to unite them as a strong organization. On the other hand, al-Qaida has larger connections with other terrorist groups and organizations in many countries. Both of these organizations have a higher impact in Middle East and some part of the South Asia. To address terrorism, we should address the problems in the field, such as education, economic development, and safety/security. in the same time, we need to fix the political instabilities and political problems in Middle east (Iraq, Syria). Military intervention is secondary elements that goes with integrated conflict resolution programs. Most important thing is that we have to move forward and find different ways to address the current problem, the traditional way of counterterrorism
