The difference is subtle but important:  to a terrorist, acts of terror are
expressive, while to a guerrilla, if they are used, acts of terror are
instrumental.  I'm guessing the actors behind the WTC bombings had no
thought that they would thereby change US policy in the Mideast or
elsewhere.  As Osama bin Laden has said in another context, his goal is to
kill Americans and other unbelievers and Satanic representatives.
