The US has said that the terror attack in Hyderabad is not going to "colour" President George W Bush's perceptions that the usage of fear as a political weapon by terror outfits will fail.
"I don't think this in any way colours the President's perceptions of the terror network...To try wherever possible to use fear as a political weapon. It's not going to work," the White House Spokesman Tony Snow said on Friday.
"The President has talked about for a long time that the natural human desire for freedom and self-determination will ultimately crush those who believe that somehow they've got a better sell in saying that if you don't do what we want, we will terrorise you, we will behead you," he said.
"...Al-Qaeda tried fear in Iraq and what has happened is that the Iraqi people have risen up," he said.
"It doesn't mean that terrorists are simply going to give up; they're not. They're going to do their very best to try to scare people. But they have tried and they have failed," Snow added.
