ABSTRACT
The article seeks to show that a major maritime terrorism is not preordained and focuses on maritime counterterrorism. The author also discusses its impact on global maritime trade. Some maritime experts claim that a single well-aimed terrorist attack could paralyze global maritime commerce. However, maritime targets are harder to attack than those on land and most terror groups do not have the experience or expertise to do so successfully.
