    No it doesn't

    What they want is for the US to stop interfering in the Middle East

    Why should we base the evaluation of our actions upon their goals? They might have had a goal of "killing the entire east coast". Does that mean we were wildly successful? Besides, they could lie about their goals.

    Let's just stick to the facts:

    A guy and his kid brother, with small home-made bombs and guns, and without any training, managed to lockdown a million people and turn Boston into a ghost town for a day.

    Not if the goal was to terrorize people. A million 'sheltered in place' and tumbleweeds rolled in Boston.

    I call 'em like I see 'em.

    Now you're just making stuff up because you're losing and getting desperate. The fact remains that the *only* way to judge if they "won" is to determine what their goal was, and to see f they achieved it.

    The facts also show that terrorists goals can be determined. Al Queda's goal was to get the West to withdraw from the Middle East. McVeighs goal to trigger a race war.

    Political terrorists do not engage in terrorism for the simple joy of creating terror. for them, terror is merely a means to an end

    Let's just stick to the facts:

    A guy and his kid brother, with small home-made bombs and guns, and without any training, managed to lockdown a million people and turn Boston into a ghost town for a day.
    And the fact is, they did not achieve their goals. They lost.

    I felt no need to address the second part of your sentence (it's kinda ridiculous to stipulate that one needs to be killed by terrorists for them to not win). I chose to address the first part. There was no intention to change any meaning.

    A terrorists goal is never to merely terrorize people.

    What else do you think they expected or intended to happen? What was their goal(s)?

    That's a question you should be asking yourself. You have insisted that their goal was merely to terrorize people even though you do not have one shred of evidence to support your absurd claim

    I, on the other hand, have pointed out that every other terrorist had goals that went beyond merely terrorizing people.
