I have been working on this spreadsheet for about a year now.  Interesting data keeps showing up.  Prior to 2004 election Terrorist attacks where slowly increasing. After the election and the antiwar types got all the press it increased. And after the Democrats took the house and the senate IRAQ killing fields started. Big upswing in terrorist attacks and the number killed.

 

Though not all things get added to this website it still give me a view of the tip of the iceberg.

Now just look at IRAQ and it shows that the surge is working on the number of attacks but the death toll is huge.

Democrats in power appears to be causing the death toll to rise.  Please note that the averages in 2007 are the total attacks/deaths/injures divided by 12.  Please note we are not near the end of the year and it already exceeds 2006 averages for all but attacks.

 

You will see I have two summary pages  the first mostly breakdown by country.  The second summary page is the latest charts I mention.

 

If you expand a hidden column. I have what happened with each attack as listed from the religion of peace website.  That is what makes this spreadsheet so huge.

 

It is hard to figure out all the factors that affect terrorism But where the attacks are taking place seem to change each year.

My ideas of factors that are affecting terrorism worldwide

1.       Iran  supporting terrorism via Oil Revenues.

2.       Democrat and anti war press that makes Moslems believe US is a paper tiger. We are running away.

3.       Terrorists get funding charities in the US and saw the links that claimed 20 terrorist camps are in the US right now.

4.       Open US borders mainly US has no security to prevent terrorists from entering the US.

5.       UN antiUS on everything it does.  Hiding their actions for causing increase in hate for US in the world.

6.       Our friends in South America training Moslims in camps to appear Spanish/Mexican

7.       Our court system that gives the rights to terrorists to kill

8.       Our press that only can see to the end of their nose to attack President Bush and weaken him so he cannot protect the US anymore. By releasing Secrets used to track terrorists. 

Did I miss any factors?

 

 

See what you can figure out from this compiling of data. 

I have seen the possibility of Pakistan government failing into terrorist hands.

Just by the increase in attacks taking place.

 

I see an increase in Killing in North Africa of nonmuslims.  This is bad because they are doing religious cleansing.  And no way can we track what is happening in that area of the world. 

 

Have a great day
