There are some interesting numbers coming out regarding World War IV.
First, American troops are less likely to die now than they were in the 1980s. Every death is a tragedy, but it’s still something of a miracle that, during a two front war, the US military has nevertheless managed to reduce its casualties to numbers lower than peacetime years.
The second big number, and one that’s increasing, not shrinking, is the number of attacks that have originated with Islamists: 10,000. That is, we’re not yet at 10,000 Islamic-based attacks, but we’re almost there, with approximately 60,000 dead and 90,000 injured due to the attacks that have already happened.
UPDATE: Thanks to DQ for catching a major gibberish error, which resulted from my trying to multi-task. Note to self: Must stop multi-tasking. Too many things go awry.
