Ever since the events of September 11, 2001, Americans have been living within their own minds, afraid of almost everything that could potentially do them harm. Terrorism continues to be one of the biggest threats to our way of life, and many everyday citizens are afraid to simply walk to work these days out of fear of a bombing or shooting taking place. With the recent events in Paris, which is quite sad and disheartening, terrorism is growing ever worse. Here are ten shattering facts about today’s modern terrorism problem.
The majority of today’s major terror groups are not even connected to Islam, despite the media telling us they are. For example, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia, which is designated as a terrorist organization by the US, is a Marxist-Leninist group.
The main victims of terrorism don’t even live within the west. We hear about the worst cases in the West, but the majority tend to be throughout Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. 60 percent of all fatal attacks occur here by terror groups.
