Terrorism: To coerce or intimidate civilians or government.

The Terrorism Cycle:

1. Broad target selection; collect intelligence and screen targets. Usually done by contacts.
2. Intelligence and surveillance; study target-routines and patterns.
3. Specific target selection: target civilians: icons of enemy-society: symbols that have value or meaning and important monuments.
4. Pre-attack planning: conducted by senior members of the organization and often difficult to detect.
5. Attack rehearsals: to gain and improve the odds of success: also go gather more intelligence on the target.
6. Execute actions: most are usually a surprise or ambush. Occurs before a response can counter the attack.
7. Escape and exploitation: objective achieved. Regroup (not in a suicide-attack), and exploit media-coverage.

I would add: "for a political purpose."

That is also a really broad definition, as some groups are intimidated by harsh language...which of course leads to the need to control language.

There are a lot of definitions of terrorism...
