As we entered the 21st century, the days of the bomb throwing anarchist of the early 20th century are long gone. Bombs are the most common known weapon of modern terrorism. They not only kill and enquire many people all at once: it manipulates and it changes our behaviour. It creates fear, uncertainty and division in our society. The meaning of the modern bombs transcends its own true function of destruction, instead it communicates specific ideological messages. The suddeness and unpredictability of these bombs are my biggest fear and their biggest victory.
