It was quite different, as @intrepid
It is by precisely by examining the huge difference that we can see ow phoney the present day terrorism is. The IRA were dragged into this - they didn't start the communal violence - they were only involved because the British Army was sent to Ulster (to 'protect' the catholic community) becuase the polce were totally partisan (corrupt). Thus the IRA was carrying out attacks with a very specific achievable, poltitical aim - and they gave warnings of their attacks.
The terror attacks in this century have no specific political aim, no official group behind them and are have a quite different agenda than the one being told us.
The USA instrumentalised it - by its own own confession - first in Afghanistan and even wanted to bring islamic terrorists into Yugoslavia. Neverhteless, it still armed and financed Albanian terrorists and they, after having caused terror in Kosovo, went on to Macedonia which is still experiemcing problems.
Next on the list of USA backed terrorism targets are Chechnya and Xinjiang (and other west china provinces).
The nature of terrorism has qualitatively completely changed - it is more like the anarchist terrorism of the 19th century or the false flag terrorism in Italy (strategy of tension) which addressed no particular issue, but is meant to destabilise the country and bring about either regime change or more authoritarianism.
This is a dirty war against the people - look at how Blair gave political asylum to the GIA and how BBC TV had a total blackout on news about their acts in Algeria.1993 Bishopsgate bombing - Wikipedia Telephoned warnings were sent about an hour beforehand, but a news photographer was killed in the blast and 44 people were injured.
