One of the horrors of fighting a war against a loosely-organized group of insurgents, like the United States is currently doing in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the ever present threat of seemingly random attacks. But what if there was a mathematical pattern that could be used to predict those attacks? Well, researches at the University of Miami claim they've found one.
Johnson says that the model could be used to predict future attacks, as well as to run scenarios predicting the outcomes of the effects of either increasing or decreasing the size of the non-insurgent forces.

Researches in university of Florida have found a mathematical way to predict when attacks will occur because there is a pattern to them. According to their models there should be in the next 6 weeks a big significant attack somewhere in the world.
