This study deals with the issue of global terrorism. It begins with Beck's description of a pattern of behaviour which is in contradiction with the interests of civilisation. Next, it evaluates Bush's choice between two flows of social capital and his GWOT strategy from the perspective of Giddens' concept of norms and resources. The encounter between the 43rd U.S. president and the al-Qaida chief is explained as a duel between a patron and a broker. The study goes on to provide a comparison of the main actors' social networks and social capital from 9/11/2001 up to the present. In the end, the author juxtaposes the U.S. direct strategic culture and the crafty and insidious culture of al-Qaida and its allied movements.
