Terrorist Activity, Serious Global Threat?

  1. or just the ramblings of prozac taking / paranoid americans / western media?

    This morning I heard on the radio stats to suggest that globally, 3500 persons have died last year as a result of terrorist activity, and of those, 90% were related to September 11. Lets do some sums. It is estimated that there are currently 6,225,827,238 people in the world. Excluding September 11 terrorist numbers, leaves 350 divided by 6,225,827,238 which equals ??????
    Answer: a very insignificant result considering how many people were murdered under stalin and Adolf Hitler and many other wars & how many people have died and are dying of hunger around the world.
