Abstract:

Addresses the definition, theory, tactics, targets, and effects of terrorism and the threat it poses to the U.S. Air Force. Past doctrines, training, and practices do not apply in the war of terrorism. Although terrorists can always inflict damage, they cannot "win" unless they throw their target into a state of hysteria. They do not have the capability to inflict crippling damage on the U.S. military, but the military must develop new capabilities and doctrines to meet the challenge.
