    Obviously you are misusing statistics. I'm not sure if you are just joking or what.

    Seriously, you compared the number of people whoo choke to death on food to the number killed by terrorism without considering that the activity of eating is essential to survival while refusing to defend the country from AQ attacks is tantamount to suicide.

    WTF?

    All over Europe. The Red Brigade, the Basques in Spain, etc. The leaders on the right always want to keep you people terrified so that they can do whatever they want. My statement is true, do some research.

    There is a randomness about terrorist attacks that mean you cant really defend against it. But you can probably minimise being murdered by things like where you live and how you conduct yourself.

    In the UK that has been the case for all of my lifetime.

    My Dad was teaching in Birmingham when the IRA were bombing the city. Nobody had a home phone in the UK in those days and it took a couple of days to hear from him after the pub bombings.

    The IRA bombed a city with a huge Irish population and the residents had a right to think that this would not happen.

    It was similar with the Warrington bomb a few years later.

    Could the terrorists of today bomb my home town ? Its possible but not likely. There is probably one murder every two years around here, and mainly domestic violence, and I have never ever felt that my life has been at risk.

    It puzzles me that Americans feel that terrorists are more of a threat than homegrown murderers. Its not the case in Europe and it certainly isnt the case in the US where you are more likely to be killed by a toddler than a terrorist.

    Perhaps people get their perception through the tv news they watch.

    Nonukes is right. There was plenty of terrorism in Europe before this decade. IRA, Basque Terrorists, and so on.

    "There is a long history of terrorism in Europe. This has often been linked to nationalist and separatist movements, while other acts have been related to political extremism (including anarchism, far-right and far-left extremism) or religious extremism."

    Look at the chart on this page and check out the terrorist attacks in Europe in the 1970s and 80s. Hundreds of deaths. You, Rosie, are the one who does not know history.

    Most seem to be done by the IRA. And BTW, it was President Clinton who brokered the Nrthern Ireland peace process.

    Because if someone can get something to support your agenda, they'll pump it for all it's worth. If it doesn't support their agenda, they'll ignore it.

    Most terrorism exists because GOVERNMENTS treated people badly.

    ETA exists because the Franco regime stopped them speaking their language, clamped down on them very hard.

    The IRA exists because the British govt treated the Catholics in Ireland very badly.

    There are plenty of other examples out there. There might be some, like the Communist groups, that don't exist for that reason, but many do.

    Conflict between England and the Irish IS NOT a 20th century phenomenon. It did not even start out
    as a Protestant/catholic phenomenon.-----in fact it PRECEDES the protestant reformation. It is a
    matter of "domestic civil discontent. Same is true of the Basque separatist movement . ..Esmeralda
    knows nothing about history. Islamic terrorism of current times is an international imperialist
    TOTALITARIAN movement which is the current manifestation of the historic "age of Islamic
    conquest" which included the genocide of approximately 500 million people and the destruction
    of whole nations. The IRA did not bomb protestant picnics in Norway. Basques did not
    do car bombs in Manhattan, New York.

    Your perspective is warped because of your bigotry toward Islam. Plain and simple.

    Negroes kill more white people than terrorists do.
