The London-based International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS) annual report in May 1999 said: ” ‘The new terrorists are likely to be more indiscriminate and more lethal than the old. Some are more sophisticated in technological, operational and other terms than earlier terrorists, and more capable of conducting operations at great distances.’ According to Colonel Terence Taylor, the Assistant Director of the IISS: ‘One-man or very small cells, motivated by extreme beliefs, can bring about large numbers of casualties. They only have to be lucky once to kill lots of people.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
