A Safer World. Thanks W!

Just another reason to roll your eyes when the President says the world is safer because we invaded Iraq.

(ABC/AP) In its annual global survey of terrorism to be released Monday, the State Department says about 14,000 attacks took place in 2006, mainly in Iraq and Afghanistan. These strikes claimed more than 20,000 lives - two-thirds in Iraq. That is 3,000 more attacks than in 2005 and 5,800 more deaths.

Altogether, 40 percent more people were killed by increasingly lethal means around the globe.
The article also mentions that Iran CONTINUES to be the largest state sponsor of terrorists. I'm so glad Iraq was at the top of the list of countries to get tough with.
