Whenever the media says that the terrorists have a success, like the bombing in Madrid, it is important to remember how this is a "success." The success is in getting media coverage. Terror War is a media war. So the terrorist success in Madrid is not in killing people. Those people didn't matter to the terrorists. The success is in using those killing to get free advertising from the media. Whenever you hear about a terrorist success, just add "in getting media coverage" after it and you get the real story.
