    The rising tide of terrorism can be directly traced to US foreign policy in the Middle East. It is simply a form of revenge for the constant bombings and occupations over there. If you want terrorism to stop then stop meddling in other countries. Remember the Golden Rule- its as simple as that.

    Not really PoS. The radicals were going after their own regimes and so called holy men long before any US policy came about.

    And terrorism increasing under Obama is not "unique", especially since its been increasing for the last 11+ years... .

    Has terrorism flourished under Obama? In any case, kindly explain why.
    Seems like it would be more acurate to say it has skyrocketed under the republican House of Representatives. It was kinda flat the first couple years after Obama took office, then went way up once republicans took the house.

    Yep, those House repuclicants made Obama remove the troops that were keeping them somewhat holed up.

    CP, do you have a link for the page that this came from? I'd like to read the article. Thanks in advance.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Wait, I thought we were playing the correlation game(see cpwill's post below yours for another example of the game and how it is played). Since we are doing that, correlations are fair game, and I found a better one than the OPs. Of course, the correlation game is ****ing idiotic, but since that is the game every one wants to play, I figured I would just play to win.

    This is why the correlation game is a stupid game. Terrorist attacks in Iraq the last year of data(2013) was a little over 600. Your chart shows almost 10k attacks at that time. SO we are supposed to beleive that the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq influenced the number of terror attacks, everywhere, by a huge margin. That seems...unlikely at best. To put it another way, terror attacks in Iraq, 2010 to 2013 goes from about 120 to just over 600. In contrast, in Russia, attacks during that time have gone from a little over 500 to over 1400, or a much larger rise.
