The number of fatalities related to terrorism soared 60% last year according to a report by the nonprofit Institute for Economics and Peace. Most of these deaths occurred in the Middle East. Policies matter. (Thanks B.H.O., for getting us out and making us look weak and unexceptional-see my “ISIL Leader Mocks Obama” post). Four groups including ISIL, Boko Haram, and the Taliban ‘took credit’ for two-thirds of worldwide deaths related to terrorism in 2013, the report said, describing radical variants of Islam as “the key commonality for all four groups.” Imagine that.
However, the world’s industrialized nations, including the U.S., often targeted by groups such as these in the past, have suffered relatively few attacks on their soil since the Sept. 11, 2001 onslaught.
Thanks, George ‘W’. Or do you think Al Gore would’ve done as well?
Terror rises now… as the West falls.
