 Understanding Terrorism (by John M. Gates) - Media Monitors Network
Roger Trinquier, a French military officer who authored an influential text in the 1960s, called terrorism "the principal weapon of modern warfare."[19] For him, the terrorist who placed a car bomb in the middle of a crowded city was no different from the pilot who dropped similar devices from a plane.
To fight against such terror, Trinquier advocated the use of torture to force information from captured terrorists that could be used to destroy their organizations.
It was only a small step from Trinquier's theorizing to the repressive governments established throughout the world in the last third of the century.
