The cheapskate’s way of harming one’s enemies, by using radicalized believers to carry out the barbaric attacks, because one doesn’t have the sophisticated weaponry to do it remotely.
Until rogue states sponsoring terrorism have the military or nuclear technology, their approach to hit those who don’t subscribe to their ideology looks pretty limited.

The common threat that is uniting enemy nations with different ideological or political systems to come together to fight this barbaric act, as they share military intelligence with each other.
Global terrorism is forcing the US and the West to cooperate with corrupt leaders and dictators from countries that pay lip service to the rule of law, human rights, and freedom of speech.

Manipulation of any person or group of persons fear (the emotion of terror, hence TERRORism) in order to gain obedience/forceful agreement, or accomplish a certian objective.
The United States media constantly throws propaganda of how everyone in the middle east is evil and embeds the word 'terrorist' into everyone's minds from the day they are born as 'evil'. Then they use it to scare us into allowing them to bomb millions of innocent lives to ashes in the Middle East, then take over for whatever purpose.

BUT WAIT! I think I've hit something here:

...embeds the word 'terrorist' into children's minds as 'evil'. Then they use it to scare us into allowing them to...

Hmm, let's break that down into something simpler:

...use fear to manipulate the people into allowing them to...

Oh my gosh! Wouldn't that make the United States the terrorists!? How ironic!

A violent act to be carried out for religious and/or political reasons. The government usually uses terrorism to cause fear of the populace to take away civil liberties even create false terror or even fund certain radical terrorist factions to instigate terror attacks to create a panic atmosphere. Also the terrorism label gets applied to those that don't always agree with the policies of the government.
Fear creates more fear and causes people to agree to almost anything even policies declared immoral. Fear is the tool that radicals use to take over countries even violate the Constitution. The whole point of terrorism is to instigate fear and terror in the heart of the citizenry.
