380% increase in terrorist attacks proves we're right to be in Iraq

Yesterday at the White House, the State Department delivered a report called Patterns of Global Terrorism. It seems that significant terrorist attacks in 2004 numbered 655. That's up from 172 attacks in 2003.

According to the report, most of the increase occurred in Iraq.

If all these terrorist attacks are occurring with 150,000 U.S. troops in that country, can you imagine how bad it would be if America had not invaded Iraq? We got there just in time's nick.

Without U.S. troops in Iraq, everyone and his mother would be launching terrorist attacks against the poor democratic people of Iraq. It's only U.S. presence that's keeping the numbers as low as they are.


After I read the report, I heard that Secretary of State Condi Rice asked that the statistics showing an increase in terrorist attacks be removed from the report before going public.

I guess Secretary Rice doesn't want it to seem that we're gloating over the fact that we're preventing so many terrorist attacks in Iraq.
