      From Athena, at Terrorism Unveiled:
      It would be more successful to rack up a large number of civilian casualties.  But the threat of attack and fear of future attacks is just as much terrorism as the actual attack itself.  So in that way, it's highly successful.  This attack would augment that fear of terrorism simply because London was proven to be penetrable even at the time of high security, high vigilance, and increased scrutiny on the Muslim community.   Because no matter if the bombs were duds or not, they could have been larger, could have been successful and they could have caused greater casualties.  The simple idea that the attackers were able to get into place to set off detonators is enough to terrorize.
