Chapter Summary

The world is currently facing with systematic menacing, maiming and murdering of the innocent in order to inspire terror and thereby achieve a policy aim. Outraged, frustrated and repulsed by this, finding ways of reforming our approach to tactics that can take into account the reality of fighting a war against terror. How do we achieve victory at the tactical level? How do we exploit that victory to achieve our strategic aims? How do we recognise defeat when we find it and how do we cope with it? We have to address these four questions by seeking achievements that do not entail slaughtering our enemies in their hundreds or thousands but which disrupt their activities so that they cannot achieve their aims. We need clear strategic aims in order to start thinking about what we need to do tactically to fight terrorism.

Keywords: defeat; strategic aims; tactical victory; terrorism; war against terror
