No Rules-No moral limitations on the type or degree of violence that terrorists can use.
No Innocents-No respecter of persons; from soldiers to children; all are game.
Economy-Kill one, frighten 10,000
Publicity-Terrorists seek publicity, and publicity encourages terrorism.
Meaning-Terrorist acts give meaning and significance to the lives of terrorists.
No Clarity-Beyond the immediate aim of destructive acts, the long-term goals of terrorists are likely to be poorly conceived or impossible to implement. Terrorism that succeeds escalates.
