We can explore the sensitivity of supply Si to this assumption through two alternatives: most of the tangible support come from the narrow but committed minority, (sr ; ss ; so ) D (0:1; 0:2; 1:0), and a situation where even the least-committed supporters materially boost the terrorists, (sr ; ss ; so ) D (0:33; 0:66; 1:00). Note that the weights effect only the relative importance of countries as sources of terrorism, not the targets of plots originating in a given region. In certain countries, such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and Turkey support for violence is relatively broad.

The vertical direction represents countries while the horizontal represents different stages in execution of plots. Domestic attack plans correspond to motion upwards, while transnational attacks also make a diagonal transition.
