The lead off graph is about the WACO Incidence and the collimation of The Oklahoma Bombing. This is about home grown terrorism and not about fighting in Overseas battles against terrorism in my opinion and has a lot of psychiatric theories of child development and economic disparity as reasons to act out in terrorist acts.

In short a bunch of theories that generalizes about half the population in the USA!


Observables: Most of the literature attributing clinical mental disorder to radicalism speaks of the remorseless personality type, psychopathy or sociopathy (Victoroff, 2005). Common theories hold that certain individuals possess or lack certain personality traits that make them more susceptible to radicalization and engaging in terroristic behavior than those individuals who do not. This personality-defect model asserts that this type of personality is largely the result of a dysfunctional childhood that fosters an impoverished sense of self and hostility toward authority. This resentment to authority may be an outgrowth of unconscious hostility toward abusive or controlling parents and is later reflected in the adult terrorist's rigid mindset
