    It's one of those days. Take a look at all the threads. A lot of Bush blamers out today.

    Heya Moot. Its not.....and its from after Bush. You can google it and there is no doubt that Terrorism has increased and expanded under BO.

    Deflecting to Bush doesn't change the reality.

    Lets see here. The time farme where you say "has leveled off" seems to be from 2008-2011. I see it clearly still going up in 2008-2009is... But lets look more in depth shall we?
    2008: 4819 incidents GTD Search Results
    2009: 4761 incidents GTD Search Results
    2010: 4851 incidents GTD Search Results
    2011: 5091 incidents GTD Search Results
    --These are all attacks in the world--

    If "leveling off" means 58 less attacks but then immediately the next year jumps back up again, then congrats it "leveled off" but infact the attacks have been increasing.

    Still....Bush wins the prize for most people killed on US soil from terrorist attack(s). I would argue this thread is trying to deflect from that fact.

    Its right here: After 13 years, 2 wars and trillions in military spending, terrorist attacks are rising sharply - The Washington Post

    Was also in my post in #27
    "The report suggests that U.S. foreign policy has played a big role in making the problem worse: "The rise in terrorist activity coincided with the US invasion of Iraq," it concludes. "This created large power vacuums in the country allowing different factions to surface and become violent." Indeed, among the five countries accounting for the bulk of attacks, the U.S. has prosecuted lengthy ground wars in two (Iraq and Afghanistan), a drone campaign in one (Pakistan), and airstrikes in a fourth (Syria)."
