It is. But what people seem to forget, is that this is exactly what terrorism means/is.

Going back at least to the 1960s, the idea is to do things that appear so appalling to regular people that governments come crawling on their knees.

I suspect the IRA, to some degree, think they actually achieved that. I suspect the Farc in Colombia do as well.

I also think the ISIS etc. motivated stuff is beyond terrorism. It is a war. There havent been any demands - they feel they just want to spread jihad to all corners of the world.

But the message of terror is still the same. But while a bomb going off on a plane or a concert is one thing. Actually sawing the head off of journalists or health workers with a hand knife takes the feeling of repulsed terror to new levels.

You could argue target bombing and indiscriminate offshore gunboat attacks, and going back carpet bombing of whole jungle, are equally terrorific.

This was not a terrorist incident. It was someone trying to blackmail DHL.
