Since its beginnings in 1943, the Inter-American Air Forces Academy (IAAFA) has fulfilled the invaluable mission of strengthening the bonds of brotherhood through providing education and training, in Spanish, to the countries in Latin America. One of the means IAAFA employs to fulfill its mission is the support provided to Latin American countries for the creation and strengthening of antiterrorist and anti-drug programs in those countries. Terrorism, defined as any act of premeditated violence that seeks to induce terrorism in the civilian population in order to reach its objectives, is a threat that respects no borders and, therefore, must be fought through multinational strategies. It is easy to conclude that the origins of terrorism date back to the very origins of the human species. For that reason, more than trying to eliminate the threat of terrorism from the face of the earth, the war on terror seeks to gain control over terrorist organizations that threaten the world's stability and, in so doing, avoid the disastrous results of terrorism as a means of fighting. It is here that IAAFA has sought to meet the needs of the nations that support inter-Americanism, by adapting its training programs to the demands of the new world order.
