Statistics

The death of 55 people in the London blasts was a terrible thing. Based on some statistics from a recent BBC report, it is also, on average, the number of innocent civilian Iraqis killed every day and a half since the invasion. We’ve just about reached the point now where more civilians have been killed by the insurgents than by the Americans and British.

I wonder if there’s anyone who believes that the ‘War on Terror’ has actually reduced the amount of terror in the world?
