Since terrorists have no problem violating the human rights of innocent citizens, it’s difficult to imagine a terrorist being dissuaded by Google’s App Engine Terms of Service:

    Most tech products and services include such warning; it is not there because the “service supplier” really means it (point in case, NO ONE reads the terms of service), but because U.S. exports controls require it to be part of the contract, and as much a tedious and repetitive text as it is, it is a “compliance” requirement with the authorities.
