Terrorists need weapons so that they can fight against their enemies. Terrorists get their weapons from enemies as they retreat from battle, cross the border to another country and steal them, buy them from countries that want to fight against the same enemy, or build improvised explosive devices (IED's). The weapons that terrorist like to use the most are guns and bombs because they are the most portable weapons and can be moved easily.
You might wonder how the terrorists get the money to buy their weapons and pay for their terrorist acts. There are some wealthy families who would like to kill or destroy people and property of some countires, so they donate money to the terrorists. Terrorists also manufacture illegal drugs and sell them in order to make money to buy the supplies that they need. The drugs are used to destroy their enemies two ways: first by selling the drugs to their enemy, and by using their enemies money, spent on drugs, to finance their organizations. They figure that their enemies end up destroying themselves by purchasing their drugs from the people who most hate them. Other terrorists come from rich families and bring money into the terrorist organizations with them.
