Synopsis:

Essay from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: 1,9, Macquarie University, language: English, abstract: Moreover, the large-scale attack of 9/11 proved that the former generally accepted maxim of "terrorists want a lot of people listening and not a lot of people dead" (Jenkins, 1985, p. 6) is not meeting the reality anymore.
