Terrorists are individuals or organizations that use fear to bend political will to their advantage. Examples include Republicans, Democrats, Christians, lobbyists, parental groups, anti-drug organizations, and Al-Qaeda.

They are known more for sophisticated and thorough plots, and less for personal hygiene.
