The world is becoming more dangerous since 9/11.
The number of terrorist attacks has risen dramatically worldwide since the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
The National Intelligence estimate the Iraq War has been a major factor in this startling rise in global terrorist attacks.
A study conducted by Peter Bergen and Paul Cruickshank, research fellows at the Center on Law and Security at the NYU School of Law, found that there
was a 607 percent rise in the average yearly incidence of attacks (28.3 attacks per year before and 199.8 after) since the Iraq invasion.
A large part of this rise occurred in Iraq, which accounts for fully half of the global total of terrorist attacks in the post-Iraq War period.
But even excluding Iraq, the average yearly number of terrorist attacks and resulting fatalities still rose sharply around the world by 265 percent
and 58 percent respectively.
I haven't posted here in a while so I hope I haven't offended anybody.
I just want to get to the bottom of this mess. What the hell is America doing in Iraq?
As of yet I don't see any good coming from this Iraq War. Just more coffins and body bags. That's just my 2 cents, Id like to know why you think
America is in Iraq also.
