Terrorists admit propaganda is a goal

August 1, 2014 Terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East openly proclaim that not only physical violence but propaganda itself is one of their main goals.

They also function as threats whose predominant and long-range effects are predominately psychological and function as long-range indoctrination which suppresses critical thinking. Wars are often fought more for their psychological impacts than their physical results.
